Do you remember the old video game Lemmings? Little green haired dudes who would walk off a cliff if you so let them, not the furry critters Disney chased off of a cliff.
The lemmings are simple enough you tell them what to do and they do it without question even if you are sending them to their gravity aided doom. Sound familiar? Yes that’s correct most of the human race are just like those little guys.
The sad thing is that it isn’t even most people’s fault but rather a mass indoctrination starting from the time you can crawl.
I’ve noticed a funny similarity as I’ve got older and wiser.
Unless you where brought up to think for yourself and question the norm it’s highly likely you were or are still are suffering from what I’ve loving dubbed lemming syndrome.
How to know if your a Lemming
Most lemmings have little to no desire to better themselves in any shape or form.
Lemmings are just average Joe’s and Jane’s working a day job, eat average food and live average lives.
The fact that your reading reach the end game shows that you sir/madam value self improvement and are certainly not a Lemming, however you aren’t happy with living a life of mediocrity and so you find yourself here.
Lemmings are average at every level. Average fitness, average diet etc etc you get the idea.
Lemmings might go to the gym every once and a while but lack any kind of consistency that is needed to make progress.
Lemmings don’t question what they hear and what they are taught.
Throughout my life I have always questioned what doesn’t make sense and goes against rationality, usually ending up in an argument with the big bad boss lemmings.
Free thinkers are few and far between in today’s world. Too few question the media and the lies that go with it.
In general Lemmings are just unfulfilled potential of mankind.

Mr Icke sums up most the world to a T.
So do yourself a favour think for yourself once and open your eyes to the real world.
How to kill Lemming syndrome
Why be a Lemming when you could be anything else.
Be a Samurai, be a Spartan, hell even be a plumber just don’t be a Lemming.
So to stop being a lemming there is a great many things you can do.
Enhance your mind and body
Becoming fit and strong will put you far ahead of most people heck just stepping into a gym levels you up. You can’t be strong and still be average, it cant happen.
Not to mention it will make you feel better as well as look great.
Stop eating crappy food, you only get out what you put in.
You must also work your brain, like any muscle you must use it or lose it.
Cut back on TV dramatically and read books instead. I’ve said many times that televison is a a complete and utter waste of time full of stupid shit to entertain dumb fucking people.
Sorry i went a bit over board there, anyway stop watching tv, save those brain cells and get to work.
In a nutshell homeostasis is the brains “easy mode” setting and its default way of thinking.
Homeostasis was once a core survival mechanic in human evolution and it meant that as a caveman he should seek comfort whenever possible. Back in the stone age this meant a nice warm cave and finding the easiest source of food, eat the berries or try and hunt a pterodactyl, yeah i’ll stick with my berries.
TLDR path of least resistance which means fast food and comfortable living and TV.
From what I’ve read you have up until your 30 to be the person you want to be after that the brain has a much harder time learning new things and adapting to ideas and that’s when Homeostasis really kicks in.
That’s why you see the majority of older people stuck in their ways and have no interest in the ever changing world.
My grandfather’s last big breakthrough was working out how to use a VCR.
Have a healthy scepticism about the things you hear and see.
Question everything and come to your own conclusions. Is what you see and hear on the 7 O’clock news really the truth? can you really trust what people say or are they just parroting something they heard?
What about your upbringing, have you ever thought about what you where told growing up? This is why Parents hate the teenage phase that comes with raising a kid.
When your a teenager you are hardwired to push boundaries and test what you were taught growing up.
Learn to think for yourself and you’ll discover many new things about yourself and the world as well.
Do what you were destined to do
Everyone at one time or another had grand dreams for the future.
Dreams of success, of accomplishment and fulfilment. Where did they go? are they still within you, deep down buried under all the shit that life throws at you.
Do what you want to do, do what makes you happy. You only get one life why waste it doing shit you hate, say fuck it and enjoy yourself.
I remember back to when i was a kid and the class had to write down and say what they wanted to be when they grew up, i’m sure many people have a similar experience.
Of all the people i grew up with and went through school with i can guarantee you that as little as 10% of them even tried to follow their dreams.
Most people i grew up with are working day jobs, some have kids already and are getting married and settling down.
Settling down at 25? That’s my idea of imprisonment.
For some that’s all they strive for and that’s fine for normal people.
There’s plenty off time down the track for homemaking, that time isn’t now.
Create your own unique vision for your life and don’t stop until you make it a reality.
It doesn’t matter that your vision is different to mine, that’s the point entirely, it must be different to be yours.
Your vision could be literally anything, from being a self guy or gal to just being able to spend your time how you choose without being limited by others.
Whatever it is make it yours.
In the end just be different from the rest, ask questions, be your true self and do what you want to do, its your life after all.
Enjoy your life, that’s all i want for people to live a life of greatness and happiness.
Until next time
