How To Lose $50K In a Few Short Months

stock fall

Step 1 – Start dabbling around in Gold ETF’s you have watched for the past 3 years

Step 2 – Have some beginners luck playing the odds.  Quickly turn your 30K investment into 75K in a matter of 3-4 months

Step 3 – Convince yourself you know what you are doing.  You have the market figured out.  Keep playing harder

Step 4 – Stop learning and reading.  Just assume you know what’s best and how the market will react.

Step 5 – Bet bigger and bigger with each stock purchase

Step 6 – As the price of your shares drop drastically, convince yourself it’s smart to cost average down.  There’s blood in the water, someone has to make money. Right?

Step 7 – Lie to yourself and wait for momentum to shift back your way.  Nothing bad has ever happened by waiting out a bad situation.

Step 8 – Don’t set stop losses.  Keep losing more money by the day.

Step 9 – When momentum does shift and you gain a substantial portion of your opening position back, be greedy and don’t sell.  You know you’re a winner!

Step 10 – Go through a reverse 10-1 split and finally sell your shares for a gigantic loss before the year ends so you don’t have to pay taxes on your previous gains.

Follow these 10 steps and you’re bound to produce the losing results I have.  Good luck!

Confinement – Sentenced To Serve


Rules exist in our minds.  The rhetoric we have been taught for all of our lives has shaped who we’ve become.  Very few people ( including myself at times) know how to think and feel on their own.  We base our thoughts and feelings off of what society has shown us.  Unable to breakdown ideals to their most basic principles and evaluate them for what they are.  Never looking for a deeper understanding, because somewhere along the way we were taught to process events in our life as good or bad and we accepted that with certainty.

Humans have a nasty tendency to view circumstances in our world as personal.  Only taking into consideration how our live’s are effected at the present time.   However, there is a paradigm shift which starts with perspective.  We can look at occurrences as corrections or validations of our actions.  If something doesn’t work out it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad.  Instead, it could be viewed as a sign it wasn’t right for us at present or we need to change our approach.

For example, I’ve destroyed all of my intimate relationships in the past.  Yet I complain about not being able to find someone to share my life with.  I continue to look for girls in all the wrong places.  If nothing changes, nothing changes.  What didn’t work for me then, still isn’t going to work for me today.  My methods and reasoning are flawed.  It’s like trying to open your front door with the same wrong key, over and over again.  No one would ever try that, it would be insane.  It’s life’s way of telling me to try something new.

Building something new is hard.  I don’t know the outcome, so I’m apprehensive.  I’ve sought out routine and comfort, fearing the results of trying something new.  I’ve been afraid I knew better and shamed myself for trying something new only to fail.

I woke up and realized I had the “things” I wanted for so long; only to realize those “things” weren’t what gave my life meaning.  They validated my insecurities and padded my ego, but never gave me a sense of fulfillment or being whole – That can only be found by living a life you are proud of.  Filling life with as much of the content that truly feeds your soul.  Everything else will eventually lose it’s appeal.  Looks fade, cars get old and money can’t fill the voids inside.

Thought Of The Day – Multitasking



Do one thing at a time – Multitasking is bullshit.

Think about the last time you brushed your teeth without doing something else with the toothbrush in your mouth. I can’t remember when I’ve solely focused on only brushing my teeth. Normally I have my phone in my hand, I’m running around the house or trying to speak to someone as toothpaste spit drips out of my mouth.  I probably wouldn’t have had so many cavities in my life if I’d given it the focus it deserves.

It’s trite and cheesy, but Heed Bruce Lee’s word’s.  Focus your energy on one thing at a time and move on to the next.  Unless you’re better than me and can multitask effectively.  In that case, fuck yourself and keep doing what works for you.

I don’t even allow myself to have more than one browser page open at one time because of how my mind wanders.  I’ll be doing work and the next thing I know I’m looking up porn, diet information and how to stop my hair from thinning.  An hour later I’ve gotten nothing accomplished, I’m hungry, I have a boner and I’m taking pictures of the top of my head to see when I should book my appointment with a Bosley hair center.

Put your focus and effort into one task.  Keep your smile shiny and white.  Stop having toothpaste dribble marks all over your bathroom or your shirt.  Practice this concept in all areas of your life and see how they improve.

Ugh, Not Another Post About Fear


Perhaps the biggest tragedy of our lives is that freedom is possible, yet we can pass our years trapped in the same old patterns…We may want to love other people without holding back, to feel authentic, to breathe in the beauty around us, to dance and sing. Yet each day we listen to inner voices that keep our life small.

I don’t believe there’s a way to write a post teaching someone how to stop being afraid.  It’s simply a decision you have to make in your own mind.  Every time you feel that nervous, uncomfortable feeling in your stomach – push forward and take a leap of faith.

If I look at my life, the things I feared becoming the most are what I have become.  Fear turned me into a person I hated.  Someone who regretted the past and wished they could have done things differently.  I allowed my fears to consume me, making my fears reality due to my behavior.  It’s as if I willed them into existence by focusing so much of my attention on those negative outcomes.

My biggest fear in life was turning out like my father.  An unhappy, angry, poorly adjusted man who was stuck in his past.  He didn’t know how to have deep, meaningful relationships, even with his own son.  His limited financial success only came through illegal means.

This is exactly who I became for many years.  I was so afraid of following in his footsteps that I became someone much like him.

I’ve destroyed my intimate relationships and pushed those who loved me away because I feared hurting them.  Ultimately, I ended up hurting them worse because I was afraid to hurt them.   I never allowed myself to be happy and comfortable in my relationships.  I felt nothing could possibly last.  I was certain I would ruin it at some point.

Once someone got too close I felt the need to sabotage the relationship.  Only to later realize what I did and try to reclaim what I destroyed to no avail.  The guilt and shame I felt kept me coming back repeatedly trying to fix the past.  Each attempt making the situation worse and more painful.

I squandered away more money than I care to think about waiting for financial opportunities to present themselves rather than seeking them out.  I feared losing the nest egg I accumulated by taking chances on businesses or venturing back into the job market.  I didn’t believe in myself or my skills when it came to making money in the legitimate world.  I was afraid of the time, money and hard work recreating my career would entail, which caused me to waste large amounts of time and money.

Whatever I feared losing became what I lost. (more…)

Episode 22: 2015 – It’s A Wrap – Year In Review

2015 was a crazy and turbulent year, full of adversity and new beginnings.  We look back on the year and what it’s brought to our lives.  I’m so grateful for everyone who downloaded our episodes and supported the show.  It’s been more fun than I can even explain.

The show opens with a quick synopsis of the key points of 2015, where we discuss vulnerability, getting outside your comfort zone and taking risks.  Justin shares lessons learned and perspective gained from falling off a 55 foot cliff.  We share our new years resolutions and why people rarely achieve them.  We round out the segment with the importance of starting every day at zero and having the vision to scale what works.

ShowerThoughts and the New Covers:

  • How often has a receptionist at a sperm bank said the phrase, “thanks for coming”
  • If Kanyne West became President, you would be able to see the first lady on Pornhub – That sloppy, Armenian pig getting dicked down by Ray Jay
  • “As Fuck” as a unit of measure
  • The use of emojis closing the language barrier in the dating world and what you can tell about a person by their most used emojis
  • Dirty talk sex blunders
  • FDA banning tanning beds
  • Steve Harvey’s blunder

We end the show with a Meditation from the man we named the segment for , Marcus Aurelius.  “The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.”  Creating happiness in your life based on perspective.

What’s That Say About You?


I’m not a solid dude. I’m that asshole on Tinder women like you (or how you used to be) seem to be looking for. Someone who’s self centered, self involved, damaged and unavailable. I’m not sure whats the appeal — maybe its the muscles, tattoos and the white-trash-handsome look. Either way it seems to work.

I guess it’s the same reason I chase all the wrong women. I like a challenge, I want to save someone and I’m a glutton for punishment.

My bio starts out with me trying to be funny.  But really it’s just me being obnoxious, “Charming handsome, well adjusted.” These are just a few adjectives used to describe me when I recently polled the women I dated. The other adjectives aren’t worth mentioning.” Yet some women find that cute and interesting.

I look like “that guy” in most of my tinder pics. Trying to sneak in as many shirtless pictures as possible. Occasionally I throw in a couple pics of me and my dog to show how loving and compassionate I am. Women seem to love my dog.

It’s a game we all play. Well at least those of us who want everything and everyone that’s wrong for us. Chasing what isn’t meant for me is one of my favorite pastimes. It usually always ends up in frustration, pain and tears, but most arrangements like that usually do. c’est la vie

A little FilmEar Action

I got a little turnt up and made an appearance on Natrebo’s podcast FilmEar – A trainwreck ensued.  His normally very structured show was spun off the rails.

We bounce around this crossover episode discussing:

  • Memorable movie theater experiences
  • Hilarious Liam Neeson performances
  • Occasionally having drinks thrown in your face
  • Getting bamboozled into a date using Big Trouble in Little China as bait.

Natrebo most likely won’t ever ask me back as a guest.  But, we had a lot of fun making this podcast.   Hopefully you have as much fun listening to it!

Check out Natrebo and his podcast on iTunes, as well as @FilmEar on twitter.

I watched this about 25 times yesterday and probably 10 times today.  I can’t stop laughing.  This guy is hilarious.  I love his brand of ridiculously stupid humor.  I need to get him on the Podcast in 2016.  Marlon Webb, well done sir!


The Easiest Ways NOT to Reach Your Goals In The New Year – A How to Guide


It’s New Year’s resolution time.  Is everyone as excited as I am about it.  You know what that means?  New year, new me and all that bullshit we love to say.  Maybe you plan to lose weight, gain weight, start a new career or simply become a better person.  But, most likely you won’t.  I’m not being negative, I’m being realistic.

Making real change in your life is incredibly difficult.  It takes conscious effort and consistency on a daily basis.  Reflecting on the resolutions I’ve made in the past, I couldn’t stick to them for more than a few months, much less achieve them.  Having said that, I have very little advice on making your resolutions become reality.  What I can tell you are a few surefire ways to ensure you won’t ever be the “new you” you want to be.

  1. Keep complaining– This is one area people really excel at.  There’s rarely a lack of consistency with their complaining efforts (myself included).  The good part is, if you continually complain hard enough, life eventually gets way better. Right?  Nope, I’m a fucking liar.  Your life will suck worse the more you complain.  If you achieve mastery of skill, you will actually be able to complain about complaining.  That’s ninja-level.
  2. Put life off– Tell yourself you will do it tomorrow.  Or maybe push it off until next week, that sounds even better. Wait for certain life events until you can finally take action or be happy.  Because once these magical events occur, THEN you will finally be able to start living.  Maybe after you miraculously lose ten pounds by eating pizza, drinking alcohol and sitting on your couch, you will finally be ready to hit the gym and get the body you’ve been dreaming about.
  3. Lie to yourself–  This is like masturbation; you’re only fucking yourself.  Tell yourself you have things under control when your life is completely unmanageable.
  4. Live in the past– We all know how this plays out.  Clinging onto the comfort of people, places and things that no longer serve us.  I’ve achieved expert level in this behavior.  Dwell so hard motherfuckers wanna fine me!  It’s pretty simple, fucking around in your past won’t get you to your future.
  5. Stay in your comfort zone– Don’t challenge yourself by doing anything new or difficult.  Only do those 3-4 things you’re great at that don’t work for you.
  6. Mock others who take risks and try new things–  This is a excellent use of time.  Look how stupid those people are, doing things you’re too afraid to attempt. What a bunch of suckers.  Let’s point out their flaws and failures so we can feel better about ourselves.
  7. Drink and use drugs too often– Hangovers are awesome!  Keep giving days away, laying on your couch accomplishing nothing.  The road to success is paved upon these principles.
  8. Expect overnight success– If you don’t get the result you dreamed off on your first attempt, you certainly never will.  Quit while you still can.  Everyone who has ever created anything great did it on the first try.  Being a millionaire or getting a great body happens within a week at the most.  Haven’t you ever seen those ads, they certainly wouldn’t lie.
  9. Set goals with no game plan– Don’t worry about what it will take to reach your goals, those detail aren’t important.  The saying “what gets measured gets managed” is complete bullshit.  What really matters is making some arbitrary goal based on a genie granting you a wish.  People don’t realize genies, leprechauns and four leaf clovers are the true means by which people achieve their goals.  It’s all about luck and wishing; not hard work, dedication and design.

Stick to these key points and I promise your 2016 will be as shitty as your 2015.  You will waste another year watching life pass you by.  However, on the bright side, you won’t have to work hard or do anything that makes you uncomfortable.  You can be the same sack of shit you were in years past.  The Glass is half full.  Cheers and happy New Year’s!
