“Know from henceforth that for the kind of person whom destiny calls the ordinary rules of life are reversed and become quite different. Good and evil are transferred to another and higher plane, then virtues which might be applauded in an ordinary person would in you become vices, simply because they would only be the source of obstacles and ruin.

“While the great law of the world is not to do this, or that, to avoid one thing, or pursue another: it is to live. To enlarge and develop our most active and sublime qualities in such a way that from any sphere we can always strive to reach another one that is wider and more airy, more elevated. Do not forget that.

“Go straight ahead. Simply do as you please insofar as it serves your interests. Leave weakness and scruple to the petty minds and to the rabble of underlings. There is only one consideration worthy of you: the elevation and greatness of yourself.”

– Boyd Rice “Some Colussus” (extract).



There is one way to improve the quality of your life almost immediately and with negligible effort. Simply put: stop reading, watching or listening to what passes for “news”. For many of us,  reading the news has become a time-consuming bad habit that contributes nothing positive and much that is negative to our lives.

As always, the solution is simple. In his clear, practical style, Steve Pavlina details exactly why you shouldn’t waste your valuable time with news and how to break the habit.
