Paid Off My Debt
“Never take up any debt for any reason.”
I was warned but I didn’t listen. I took on debt and had to learn for myself.
When I had debt it was all I could think about.
Knowing each month there was interest going towards nothing motivated me to pay off the entire loan faster.
And so I did. Within 6 months I went from having a good amount of debt to no debt.
What I don’t understand is how everyone else isn’t concerned like I was.
If you ask ten people if they have any debt 9 out of 10 will say yes.
Then if you ask them how they sleep at night, they’ll tell you:
“Everyone has debt”
Since they think everyone has debt, it must mean it’s okay to have debt.
But when I had debt I felt trapped. Enslaved.
Like I couldn’t quit my job if I wanted to.
I remember telling a coworker that I couldn’t stand having debt. He told me this:
“If you got something you really like, you wouldn’t mind it”
In other words, people will happily go into debt if it means getting something they like.
But I’ll tell you right now-
Nothing makes you happier than feeling free.
Do I regret taking on debt? No.
Only because I used it to push me forward in the first place.
Should you get into debt? Hell no.
I wouldn’t recommend anyone ever take up debt ever.
People with debt live in quiet desperation.
Started Learning Sales
I wanted to get into sales for two reasons:
- You get paid for your effort and results
- You get paid to improve your people skills
Before I started sales I was more negative, more dismissive, and I made less money.
Now since I started sales I’m much more positive, more sociable and I make more money.
Needless to say I’m happier than I was before in nearly every facet of life.
And don’t be quick to reject sales if you’re introverted. I’m an introvert too.
If anything, that’s why you should do it. You learn how to appear extroverted.
It’s all a grand performance.
You learn a lot about business working sales.
Chances are you’ve heard the saying-
“Everything is Sales”
Well that phrase doesn’t do it justice.
A more accurate saying would be-
SALES IS REALITY
It all comes down to making everything look good and sound good.
I recommend everyone to try out sales. You will be rewarded financially, socially, and mentally.
Increased Website Traffic
Traffic to Level Up Stud has increased exponentially since the site launched.
Views this year are six times more than in 2017.
Visitors this year are nearly ten times more than in 2017.
This will increase even more as we move through 2019.
This past November I wrote and published posts as frequently as I could.
Most of these posts were whipped up the day of and are what I consider “unfinished”.
But I likely won’t go back to fix them until much later.
Despite that, here are the top three posts released this past November-
Wrote an Ebook
It’s a short ebook that I will use as an email subscription incentive.
It will contain proven methods used by myself and others.
However - I refuse to release it until I am in the right position to do so.
Writing it wasn’t hard and I’ve already drafted up a post for it’s release since last year.
But like I mentioned, I simply haven’t reached the point where I want to use it.

For fun I’ve been trying have three fuck buddies at once.
But every time I’m about to get a third in the mix, one of the others fall off.
Now I know what the problem is, but I just don’t care enough to do something about it.
Personally, it’s too much for me to juggle anyway.
The good news is that I’m getting closer to my meaningless notch count goal either way.
This is great since it helps get the “chase pussy” phase out of the way.
Although present me doesn’t care right now, I’m sure older me will be thankful.
The bad news is since I’ve started doing this my body has gone to shit and I’ve gained some weight.
Got Rid of Stale Relationships
Pretty self-explanatory. These people weren’t helping me get laid, paid, or make gains.
If anything, my presence helped them up. But they brought me down.
So I cut ‘em loose. Haven’t felt bad about it since.
Now I surround myself with people who make me feel inadequate in one way or another.
By feeling inadequate, I know I can learn something from these people. Their presence is enough to contribute to my growth (as if through osmosis).
I also recommend finding someone who can bring out the worst in you.
That very same person can bring the best out of you.
Also keep in contact with friends who are on their own path.
I have this one friend who I talk to on a quarterly basis. We talk about our fitness, ideas, relationships, and finances.
We recommend things we like to each other, such as books, exercises, foods, and advice.
Since our relationship is about building one another, all I have is respect for this person.
I recommend you find someone you can do the same with.
In general I’ve grown more confident in myself.
Each of the points listed above has been feeding into this.
Notice that none of these things come passively. You actually have to do something.
Confidence is earned.
But I did find another way to be more confident that takes far less work.
It’s called 5-HTP.
I don’t know what the fuck happened to me when I first took it, but since my very first pill it’s as if a switch was flipped.
Something in my brain clicked and I haven’t been the same since.
Where I Failed
I had seven goals for 2018. I accomplished five.
I didn’t reach my fitness goals. And that’s okay. I figure I needed to step away from that for now anyway.
Then my other goal was to make a year’s worth of videos to drop in 2019.
That did not happen. Not one bit.
What I Want to Accomplish in 2019
Each goal is related to the three games of life: Getting Paid, Getting Laid & Making Gains.
My physical goal is to get lean again. I’ve already dabbled with the carnivore diet, so I just need to tweak it for fat loss.
My sexual goal is to improve my libido and sexual energy. Despite being young, I’m sure I need to be more sexually driven than I currently am. I’m going to fix that.
My money goal is to get my new business project off the ground. I feel like if I put it off any longer I'll miss my chance.
And there you have it. Wish you guys a merry year’s end.
Have a plan for next year and make sure you kill it.
Until next time,
