Excepts and thoughts on #self-reliance and what they mean to me. Starting with #Emerson and adding as I go. As I read and re-read different essays and passages from the past, I edit them and makes notes on what affects me most. You can sense the great messages in writing from the past, yet some of it gets lost in the older language used. As I go through this and understand the deep messages, I’ll put them into easier to understand vocabulary right here.

How To Be Happy - Kids are often asked: ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ The world expects grandiose aspirations: ‘I want to be a writer, a doctor, the prime minister.’ They’re told: go to school, go to college, get a job, get married, and then you’ll be happy. But that’s all about doing, not being – and while doing will bring you moments of joy, it won’t necessarily reward you with lasting happiness.

I’ve always been into #prepping. From setting traps and tying knots as a kid, to my days in the Canadian Infantry. I’ve always invested in skills rather than stockpiles. But one day I realize the biggest threat facing me was surviving debt and increasing my economic self-sufficiency. … and I needed to fix it fast.

No more debt became my battle cry.

The best endomorph workout plan for weightloss is going to look a little different than a more traditional 3 phase periodized workout plan. An example of an all round workout plan can be seen in this series of beginner instructional articles.

The endomorph body type often has big bones, round face, and a large trunk and thighs. Endomorph body types have a naturally high degree of body fat, especially around the midsection. When you see the usual endomorph body type, your thinking in the shape pattern of a pear. Endomorphs usually struggle to control their weight, because of slower metabolisms and the inability to exert enough effort to burn the required calories due to the large amount of weight the endomorph body type carries.

When I first wanted to learn how to do a pistol squat I searched everywhere on the internet. I looked up all the masters.

Here are a few of them because in some way, shape of form, they all contributed a piece of knowledge that at some point glued onto another piece to bring me to the final objective of doing a one leg squat.

In the end I have the routine and approach that worked for my body. My bodies kinks, injuries and limitations. If you’ve weight lifted using the squat, deadlift, bench, overhead press your whole life, then our bodies are probably similar.
