Today I would like to return to the discussions related to all individuals and groups within Bitcoin, as well as outsiders. Especially for people outside. I have a story that tells one of health, longevity, fitness, self-efficacy, and self-esteem. A story that proverbally examines a physical mirror, admits that reality is not what is desired, and accepts the responsibilities and accountability necessary to create a life in which an individual finds himself proudly.
I know what you are thinking … and no, this is not my story. Below are the interview questions that the woman in question was willing to answer to me in a written interview. I’ve added case studies provided in a phone interview and some of my own insights.
This is the story of asset shifts Perception And for money, for strong and honest money, for Bitcoin, the idea that one individual actually worked to improve her health and fitness.
Her name and personally identifiable information such as work, residence, etc. are omitted to protect her family, but her “nym” (abbreviation for pseudonym) she attends on Twitter is in the article. It will be provided in the second half. For now, I want to focus on her story, not her online identity.
Mike Hobart: “Did you live an” active “lifestyle before getting off the Bitcoin Rabbit Hole? “
“I would say, I always liked to challenge myself. But all the challenges and goals achieved were quickly followed up with meaningless self-defeating behavior, basically. I’ve put back everything I was trying to achieve. As a result, I’ve been terribly disappointed with myself for years, and at some point I’ll never be the one I’ve always wanted, never. I just accepted that. “
This is a set of hurdles that we all often face when looking head-on at a mirror of reality that we know lacks in our dreams and aspirations. Whether the problem is body composition, nutrition, alcohol consumption, illegal drug use, mental health problems, etc., many of us fall into the psychological traps my friends found themselves. .. Most commonly experienced around the very painful and noisy words I personally absolutely want to avoid, the “diet”.
When reality sheds light on us, our vulnerabilities, flaws, and areas of life that we know we cannot do as much as we can, in a sense, are what we do. It is very natural to seek release from the routines we adopt, with the goal of achieving the desired results. But this is only natural if we recognize the activity we are engaged in as a punishment. We do not seek the opportunity to actively free what we consider rewarding or given the opportunity to act. When we consider a healthy diet to be a “diet,” we tend to quickly encounter psychological resistance based on the spirit of preferring to eat more “tasty.” I have a horrifying quote about this.Because, in fact, most of the food choices we find delicious aren’t healthy either, so a fair amount sodium When sugar It contains Among the foods we want to consume — maybe even craving..
How would you react if you were walking down the street and a stranger approached you and asked, “Open your mouth … close your eyes and let something go in there …”? This is exactly how relationships with processed food producers and food choices work today! – A hilarious point by another humble bitcoiner who wants to be anonymous
MH: “How did Bitcoin influence your personal view of lifestyle and health / fitness?”
“Everything, Bitcoin really changed the way I see everything.
“All the basics of the Bitcoin network are somehow superimposed on the lens I’m experiencing the world right now. Don’t trust. Verify. Proof of Work; Time and Energy; Do the Work Will be rewarded.
“Time and energy were the first basics I started to incorporate into my life. And I put in my work from there. I use indicators to measure my work and finally check my rewards. Code… Network It’s very weird when you think about using it to stimulate the success of your life. At the same time, it makes perfect sense when you think about the fundamentals of the Bitcoin network. “
This is a powerful thing that the woman in question has in mind. When someone reaches the point of revelation, when it finally clicks on it in the organic system, big changes are made slowly, finely and consistently. Just as big changes require many consistent small events over a long period of time to change the world, big changes in our bodies also have an extended, measurable length of time. I need it.
MH: “What have the lifestyle changes and upgrades brought about? (Results)”
“In a sense, there have been changes that are unknown to my conscious self. It wasn’t long before I realized how easy and influential these changes were. The other changes were painful and necessary, but quite intentional.
“One of the most influential changes was to stop making excuses. I stopped telling myself that I couldn’t accomplish what I was trying to do. This is intentional. It wasn’t, but it was a by-product of the lenses I’m experiencing in the world right now.
“Through this same lens, I looked at myself intentionally and critically. I literally mean this. I looked in the mirror and confirmed that this person was looking at me. … It wasn’t okay. It wasn’t the “I” I felt inside.
“It’s important to note that there were additional motivational factors that stimulated my journey, such as the fact that COVID didn’t go anywhere right away and the appointment of a doctor I was embarrassed to attend. I think. The shame I felt presenting this nasty physical expression of years of excuses and failures to my doctor. Now it’s different, but my doctor says I’m If she could confirm that very easily on the outside, how can she trust that it wasn’t true?
“This sequence of events has brought about a series of significant changes in my life. I lost 30% of my weight on this 6-month trip. I did my job, and now I am. I am rewarded with a physical representation of how I feel inside. I have essentially reprogrammed myself. “
Well, without adding a warning to the discussion here, I couldn’t act responsibly in the background of exercise science. This is not a claim that everyone (everyone) will experience such wonderful and rapid results. Not only are our bodies different, but our environment, relationships and lifestyles are also different.There is also the dynamics of Diminishing returnsYou’ve probably heard that many of you have been discussed about investmentEspecially before and after the Bitcoin adoption cycle. Our bodies adapt in the same way as the market.
This story is sometimes mentioned on Twitter SpacesHumble Warrior.. “
My favorite parts of the Humble story are Bitcoin, low time preferences, investment, discipline, and a beautiful crossroads of more concepts. Over the past few years, I have been discussing how investing in Bitcoin is poetically parallel to investing in health. But it’s not just about physical health. mental health It is also a major beneficiary of both of these areas, as some of the most common mistakes investors (especially amateur investors) make are around. Psychological state Dealing with fear, anxiety, confusion, or prejudice such as: Sunk cost..
I hope the story of Humble will help you improve your life. No matter how much wealth Bitcoin brings to us and our families, most without the physical and mental health to properly enjoy our lives in the future and to remain present at the most important moments. It doesn’t matter.
The benefits of Bitcoin, both in number and depth, extend far beyond the financial and economic aspects, and we all work hard to continue to protect the Bitcoin network and its decentralized operations. As long as we do, we believe we can actually make a fundamentally positive and powerful change in our world.
Not only the health of each other, but the health of how our country or state is governed and led. One of these biggest points is the separation of money from state rule. If you agree, Declaration of financial independenceAnd if this document hits you like myself or many other members of the Bitcoin community, I empower you to sign … as humble as I did.
