So, if I were to say you and I are about to run away together...what would you say?
Probably some words of rebuttal, years of social conditioning has taught us not to trust strangers after all. That paired with the fact you and I are probably a little more than a hop, skip, and a jump away from each other right? Not a realistic statement at all is it.
Well if you'd just indulge my little sentiment for a moment more, perhaps we can work something out huh? I'm going to suggest we do something crazy. Literally downright insane. Let's kill ourselves.
Now, now there! Put that knife down that sort of death isn't going to get us anywhere is it? Of course, being a normally functioning human being I'm not suggesting we actually kill ourselves. You'll no doubt learn quickly that I have a twisted way of getting my thoughts and messages across to others (I think you'll find the term is shock factor).
No. What I'm really saying is we need to start afresh. Rebuild ourselves from the ground up. Rise like the Phoenix from the razed ashes of our previous selves. And become who we want to be. And yes, Scientology? I'm more than willing to accept your employment opportunity as soon as it suits you. Clearly my metaphorical ambiguity will suit your little setup quite nicely.
So here's what we're going to do.
We're going to start looking after ourselves.
We're going to start thinking like good people.
We're going to start becoming *insert your name here* 2.0
In all seriousness, that's the essence of what this web space is going to represent. A place to simply become better. I mean, isn't that what we all pretend we want to do? I'm sure in many of your minds you're already pretty damn fucking perfect and content with who you are. I know most of the time I am. I love myself. I wouldn't change myself at all if someone else gave me the chance. But after a while an opportunity to be even more happy passes me by. Suddenly that confidence just...dissipates for a spell or two. Not very pleasant all if we're all being honest. So I decided that here, we would drive each other to become better together. To become Ten Times the Man if you will. Whatever that entails I suppose we'll find out sooner or later, but I'm sure it will be a worthwhile investment of our precious time.
So to leave you now, lets set up a little challenge. Write down in 5 words or less, how you would know if you were *insert your name here* 2.0. You don't have to post it anywhere, or even tell me. Do it in your head even. But this is where we're going to start.
Don't look too confused. It'll make more sense the second time you read it.
Let's begin our journey.
