Scientific Research & Self-Development Activism
It has been awhile, but I have suddenly had this urge to write a blog post before I crash into some brick wall, because life seems to be going by so fast. Much faster then I really wanted and it seems like I have lost all control and when I lost that control I lost myself. I fell into boredom, and my old bad habits returned... Yet there is this hope. This fighting spirit within me that does not give up until it is over. This is just a heads up on how I have been and where I…Continue
Hey guys and girls,
I want to tell you about me, I think this is the only place right now where I can talk about this . I tried to organize my feelings, sorry if they're not xD
When I see a dude with a sixpack flying by in some advertisement on bodybuilding I think; Damn, I want a body like that. Then I work out some times a week (some exercises at home) and then I doubt my motivation. like "I have a nice character, if girls don't like me…Continue
Let's continue from where we left off...
So I started early to meet my girlfriend at the airport way before her so her parent's wouldn't see me if they dropped her off inside. I had a couple of pints (I'll be doing a forum post about alcohol if I remember) while I mentally prepared myself for the 9-10 hours of travelling. We had our 2 hour flight and managed to find our way to Bratislava train station despite neither of us knowing a bit of…Continue

Hi there! This is my first time posting a blog... but I'm not nervous.... are you?
Self Development Activist? By definition, I have lived my whole life as an SDA but perhaps I didn't know it?
My motto has always been: 'if you don't know... learn.'
I have encountered people who I would term 'MBA's'... ie Mind Bending Arseholes.
These are people who were into Brian Tracy or Anthony Robbins and thought they could come up with their own self-development package that…Continue
It's been a couple of years since I've been here on iPower and I'm glad to be back. Since I've been gone I've gone through several processes of maturation, including fatherhood, self employment, traditional employment, home ownership, spiritual realignment, and lots of time to think about what all these milestones really meant for me. Each of these brought me to a different understanding of responsibility, self understanding, introspection, critique of lifestyle and culture, appreciation for…Continue
No more excuses
No more procastination
No more unhealthy living
I'm done with being overweight and I know you will agree with me.
Since I've been here on this site. I have completed almost all my goals except you body. Body you're the last hurdle that I must complete in order to live a long life.
I know all the battles that we've experienced together combating fat over the past 10 years. Losing weight and gaining weight etc. But now I'm going to set things…Continue
It occurs to me that a decimal (base ten) number system would seem natural to humans as we have a sum of ten appendages on our hands. Though, this correlation to a bodily phenomenon may be entirely arbitrary.
Binary, on the other hand, has always seemed to be an odd yet frequently appearing aspect of human life.
I have supposed that this could be due to the way our body seems to reflect itself down the middle and become a binary unit in that it has two sides (left and right) then…
been a few years since my last blog post, but today i want to write.
I actually moved from Førde to bergen a month ago, i now live with my girlfriend, i got a job selling fresh fish. It's quite nice too sum it up, except that i have a lack of money. I've been reckless with my money and now i Have to go into monk mode, the real chineese-kind where i only eat rice and "universe juice".
This is not a permanent state of affairs since i'll get my pay by the end of the month but i…Continue
Life is made up of your habits. What you do each day determines your quality of life. We know that. Man becomes a slave to his routine. Slave to his routine thoughts. This is the best way towards progress. Not quitting or giving up ones ritual. My grandma's ritual is to go pray each day. She also cooks food, and has constant religious thoughts circulating in her head. Her faith in Allah is very strong and unshakable. She believes with 100% certainty the existence of an after life. An after…Continue

I want to share some thoughts on social problems faced by many individuals this day and age, but before I get into that I want to discuss distractions.
In our life we have these emotions, these feelings, these thoughts that we try to cover up by surrounding ourselves with massive amount of activities. For example I have a problem forming relationships with the opposite sex, so in the past I covered my problem with pornography. Only as I got into more hard core material did I…Continue
Question about using politics to create an RBE. (Resource Based Economy) I answered that goverments do not do anything that would take power away from themselves.
"it's askew, but I feel you imply that only riots all over the world could possibly help us with an RBE. Is that what you mean to convey? Or is it that RBE is an ideology which could only be aimed or fantasized but could never actually work in real world? Plz correct me."
No, that is an assumption that comes…

Well, I experienced something terrible the other day, and since I'm still upset and angry about it I thought I might blog about it and try to "get it off my chest". It regards a "prayer breakfast" that my mother had invited me to attend with her last Friday morning. I usually don't go in for those kind of things, but she cajoled me into it by telling me that she would enjoy my companionship and that I needed to get out of the house more, etc. So I said, OK; and I went with her. …Continue
I was suppose to be doing these weekly!? :)
Life has been kicking my butt (in the most awesome way possible!) the last couple weeks. If you really wanted to know about me I have a blog and a YouTube channel. These are just some noteworthy things:

Destruction. This is what happens night after night. You wake up and you are a new man. It is like during sleep your brain reorganizes itself and deletes all of the information it deems useless. All those dull moments and all those activities that are pointless are quickly vanished when you wake up in the morning. Sure you can maybe remember what you ate yesterday for breakfast, but can you remember what you ate for breakfast 2 days before that? Probably not. The information is pointless and…Continue
So last week I forgot to post anything but I've been keeping myself busy I guess. I have noticed since I've not been keeping focused on self-development I've slipped up a little and felt a little depressed last week although I would never let others around me know, especially not those that would genuinely care. I know how bad this is too because I should let them know so they can help but it's embarassing and weak to let others know I feel weak and down and I don't want to make them worry.…Continue

It is done. It is really done. Still can't believe it.
Yesterday, it was the day. With a big feeling of excitement in my stomach I left work, and headed for the tattoo studio. Many thoughts rushed through my head. Many of hesitation. Of doubt. Of WHAT THE F*CK ARE YOU DOING?!
When I arrived I was so damn nervous that it nearly hurt. Still I knew - it is totally without any reason. The tattoo artist is a good guy, and we talked a lot before we started.…Continue
