“He began to acquire things, which is how an ordinary man becomes a titan.” -Jerry Weintraub
Well, here it is. The first post on my official website. It’s kinda weird writing in this tone. Feels like those movie scenes where the actor or actress is talking in their heads while they write. Anyways, that is exactly what I’m doing… Let’s get into this post.
I’m just an ordinary man. A simple, relatively intelligent bloke, if I may say so myself. I woke up one day and said I need a personal site. I need something to write thoughts, ideas, capture moments in my life that matter. Essentially I need a time capsule. This is it. At the age of 24 (soon to be 25) I have my life ahead of me. There will be countless professional decisions that will need to be made. I feel there is no better form of thinking than writing. There’s also something liberating about writing where anyone you know or some kid half-way around the world can read your thoughts.
This is a “private” blog. Somewhere I can express my ideas openly. I’m not here to sell anything. I’m here to record my life in as personal or professional manner possible.
What’s my life’s goal? Obtaining financial independence, becoming the most well-rounded man I can be, and reaching the optimal health I can. To take care of my family and be a leader for those in my life are the most noble ambitions a man can have.
The title for this post came from a book I read written by Jerry Weintraub. An uber personality and success, one of my influencers. There’s a lot of characteristics and habits I will apply from his life. He started with nothing. He had charisma and a dream. He made it happen. In his book there was a profound sentence that caught my attention. I’m paraphrasing here, “ordinary men who acquire things become titans”. Well, that sums up my dream. As much as I hate to say it, I don’t have a 180 IQ. I’m an ordinary guy. However, with charisma, the hunger for knowledge and success I will turn these dreams into a reality.
So, here I will record and measure the results of my life and business. Starting from nothing I aim to become a titan, whatever that mean to someone. For me, it means a man of impregnable character, who leads from the front, takes massive action to acquire things he holds dear and make the world a better place; to be successful in life. A man who builds things, turns ideas into tangible realities. This is who I aim to be. And it all starts from me.
