The Two (D)immensional Formula For Success

In reality, life is pretty simple, we’re the ones who over complicate that shit. There’s a reason the KISS principle is in the sidebar.

Complexity is the enemy of execution so I’m gonna provide you with a simple as fuck guide to obtaining everything and anything you ever wanted.

It’s important to note that simple and easy are two completely different definitions. So different that many of the most difficult life philosophies to adhere to are some of the simplest ones.

Don’t pedastalize even an HB 10

Consistently workout hard 5 days a week

Eat good shit and get quality sleep

When you boil it down to the nuts and bolts, achievement comes down to two and only two things. The first is

Desire

When you wanna succeed as bad as you wanna breathe, only then will you be successful. Think about the things you want most in life. What are they? Looking like a Greek God? Making seven figures? Fucking 100 women a month? Being an outstanding father to your children?

Be honest with yourself, how strong is your desire for those things? If it’s not a fire that ignites every molecule in your body there’s a good chance you’ll never obtain it.

Whatever it may be, the only way you’ll obtain it is if you want it as bad as you wanna breathe. How bad do you fucking want it? Do you want it just enough to chase it when it’s conveniently within sight? That’s not gonna be enough, not even close.

You need to want it so fucking bad you think about it every single day, you couldn’t remember the last day you went without it on your mind. You need to want it so fucking bad you’ll be willing to sacrifice even the shiniest temptations for it. You need to want it so fucking bad, one of your greatest fears and worries is not having it.

Once you find a way to spark that level of desire within, you’re over halfway there. The only thing that’s left is also pretty damn simple: discipline.

But that’s the topic for next time.

Where's the other D?

All I see is desire

[–][deleted] 31 points32 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Oh....

Desire and discipline.

....The other D is discipline.

Got it.

[–]entrep4 22 points23 points  (7 children) | Copy Link

Come over and I'll show you the other D 😉

[–]INNASKILLZ2K18 5 points6 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

Dude, did you literally just proposition another male with the d?

[–]AnonUser1005 18 points19 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Its not gay if he says no homo before

[–]thetotalpackage7 5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Correct, but he didn’t... must be a full homo.

[–]ownthatshitmanup 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

With this pandemic you gotta take what you can get

[–]SoulRedemption 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I waa thinking too, then realized it is two dimensional as opposed to three dimensional. So there actually is only one D

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I agree, and it is in that order. Desire = conscious thoughts = subconscious thoughts = the fundamentals of LOA

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

i have a bunch of desires and none of them i desire as much "as i want to breathe". you see my stupid brain always finds rationalization why i really don't desire x as much as i think i do. in order for desire to remain consistent, i must find some sort of pleasure in the process itself, not just the end result (i guess its related to instant vs delayed gratification). and desires change.. i desired different stuff 10 years ago in my 20s than now in my 30s. and probably i will desire something else in another 10 years.

im probably just missing the main idea of this topic - that in order to get something, you really have to desire it (and be disciplined enough to follow thorough), not just merely 'want it'.

[–]StarchRunner 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Whatever leads someone to relentless focus, the only way to overcome adversity and accomplish great things.

[–]Plenty_good_stuff[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

This is a trick i found to use the brain'ss risk/rewards mechanisms to my advantage. I set basic targets (sometimes daily) and i bet money on them. Not tons but just a bit. An example. I wanted to start approaching women consistently. I couldn't motivate and focus my mind to do it. And since the brain is more motivated by the fear of loss than the desire for a reward i decided to hack it. How? Well if i don't approach at least one worthy girl today or at least have one quality interacrtion in that day i'm throwing a coin away (you pick the amount or currency). Believe me i hate throwing money away, i'd at least give it to someone. But that amount is like playing an arcade game and gets you to focus on your daily target. Just an idea.

[–]UnleashTheWolf1 points [recovered] (1 child) | Copy Link

Motivation comes and goes. You can't feel a burning desire for something every time you think of it. What you need is to build up good habits, until you do the things that you need to without any mental resistance, to get where you want to be.

Also *dimensional

[–]thecruzzer 5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

That’s where discipline comes in

[–]InAlteredState 4 points5 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

This can be good advice but with some clarification.

As stoics clearly put it: only desire like crazy things that are completely under your own control. If you desire with your heart and soul things that are not in your own control, you are setting yourself up for severe disappointment.

Some examples:

- Desire with your heart and soul eating well, it ONLY depends on you.

- Desire with your heart and soul exercising 5 days a week, it ONLY depends on you.

- Desire with your heart and soul approaching 10 girls a day no matter the outcome it ONLY depends on you.

- Do NOT desire specifically fucking women A or B, or fucking 100 women a month, because you might not fuck them, it does not depend only on you.

- Do NOT desire a certain promotion at work or a specific dream job, because you might not get it, it does not depend only on you.

And the sam can be applied to the opposite of desire: aversion. Do not desire not finding toxic people in your life, or not twisting an ankle while you work out, because you will find those things. Rather focus on your reactions to those things, which you can control: acceptance, calm, logical thinking, resoluteness.

I agreed completely with OP and was about to try to argue against your comment (as I was not agreeing with none of the comments that were missing the point), but you was also spot on. We gotta be realistic and not just daydreamers, if it’s something possible, then go for it, all in, bet all your chips, but if it’s not really up to you to achieve it then it wouldn’t even make sense

[–]InAlteredState 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

You also have to go for things that are not under your control, otherwise we wouldn't do anything at all. But do it always with no expectations and no irrational desire.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Of course! As I said, you can’t go ALL IN if it’s not all up to you, it’s a recipe for disaster (and would be irrational), but not everything is going to be on our control, and about those we may try our best and do what we possibly can, but accepting the outcomes, and since there’s chance of failure, going all in would be irrational, bad “management”

[–]BigBoiBahmani 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

What do you want --> How do I get it --> Get it.

[–]INNASKILLZ2K18 1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

What successes have you had with this formula?

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Im making money on a high performance job that many people thought was impossible and gave up trying, while I would wake up everyday thinking about making it, would spend my days working towards it and sometimes I’d be let down but kept grinding, went all in, and I eventually made it. I had that desire that none of my friends had, and just kept grinding and grinding every single day, literally as if failure was not an option, I even dropped out of college (I dont recommend to anyone) just to dedicate all I could to it. But of course I knew it was possible, I knew it just depended on me to make it and didnt depend on others or on things I could not control.

[–]INNASKILLZ2K18 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Awesome. I asked, because backing up posts with some examples of what the advice has done for you helps give it some weight and depth.

Otherwise it reads like an abstract platitude with no context.

It gives it some credence.

That's awesome, glad you made it happen.

I agree. You have to have an overwhelming belief in what you're doing. Everything comes to serve it in some way. I'm the same way.

[–]B3ER 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Long story short, desire or motivation is a fuel source in your engine that drives your effort. Discipline is what drives your effort in the absence of motivation.

[–]DirtyLickins 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

I desire some things very badly, but at the same time, I also think about what if I just end up wasting time, and end up going nowhere.

[–]KingGerbz[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn. More is lost through inaction than will ever be lost through wrong action. Doing is the best thing you can do, you can either succeed or you can learn lessons to help you succeed in the future.

[–]zino1931 points [recovered] (7 children) | Copy Link

I think this alianates people that don't have all that much passion and energy.

Listen - just lift. Honestly, it's such a essential step to fix so many things biologically. Having more energy, more pride in yourself, looking better and getting more positive interactions without investments.

You don't have to want it, like it, or make it step 1 of your 169 step plan to God-mode.

Just do it- now, get up, get a shirt. short and training shoe, go to your nearest Gym and do 5 squats with a empty bar, then 5 with 20 lbs on it, get some dumbells and then do 5 push presses starting with the lighted weights and see how far you can go and then get on a machine,a rower, stepper, bike or threadmill, and go full speed for 20 seconds 3 times with 30 seconds breaks between them. That's it.

Just do it. Now, tomorrow - day after day. Just steal comfort from yourself for 40 minute each day. You don't have to want to do it, like it, you can hate it, but just do it.

I assure you, your brain will change after 5 days. Your wants and values will change. All you have to do is move your body.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy Link

This is not just about lifting though, it goes so much deeper than that. And sure, if your brain changes after 5 days thats ok, then youll get that desire. OP never said “dont even try”, it’s just that without really wanting it you are never gonna make it, that’s facts.

[–]zino1931 points [recovered] (2 children) | Copy Link

You can not limit yourself to what you "want" - you do not know what it means to work out, until after you work out.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

yes man, I'm not talking about trying things, I'm talking about sticking to it and making it till you're successful, you'll never get that great physique if you don't really desire it, that's where I'm trying to get. It's not alienating, it's being realistic. This won't stop anyone from trying anything, after all that's the starting point for you to get that "desire"

s's

[–]KingGerbz[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

My goal wasn’t to alienate people who don’t have passion. But if that’s you, then you gotta do some deep thinking to re-evaluate your goals and desires. Without burning passion and energy it’s just going to be extremely difficult, almost impossible to achieve your wildest dreams.

Without passion it’ll be far harder to make the necessary sacrifices, it’ll be easier to burn out. You won’t do whatever it takes. So you really do need to begin with finding that fire within yourself.

Ask yourself why. Why do you want the things you desire? That’s a good first step.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
