weed made me a loser yes or no

How to still achieve all your goals while being blazed!


There’s many times when I read online about people blaming weed for them being lazy. This is odd to me because I smoke weed every single day and I wouldn’t use the word “lazy” to describe myself.


I wake up most mornings at five AM, drink some coffee, do a bit of meditation and breathwork, and then I execute a carefully constructed exercise routine while invoking my Astral Temple and setting my intention for the day.


Yea, it sounds a bit weird when I write it out like that, but the fact of the matter is that every day I’m doing 100 push-ups in varied positions, 60 yogi squats, 20+ minutes of planking, and other fitness movements.


I do this all before the clock strikes 6 AM.


What do I do after that?


I take a few puffs from a joint, sit back, relax – and plan out my day. I focus on what will move me closer to my main objective, what are my maintenance activities, and what I’d like to achieve at the end of the day.


Then – I execute.


So why is it that I can smoke weed and get shit done, but other people get “bush-whacked by the weed?” Is it because I am some extraordinary human being who have different capabilities than them?


Well – yes, but so is every single individual human being on this planet. While I do possess different talents than everyone else, we all have the same time in a single day – and a key to being an effective human being is knowing how to spend your energy and where to focus your attention.


For the people who are clamoring about how “weed makes them lazy”, I say quit using weed as an excuse for your mediocre life.


Yep, I said it.


If you’re having issues with productivity, with the feeling of success, or not being “happy” – I hate to break it to you…it’s not the weed homey!


While the weed could be used to treat your symptoms of depression and anxiety, it unfortunately cannot “save you” from your pitiful situation. Yet in the same way that it cannot save you from your existential angst, it also cannot be blamed for it either.


After all, cannabis didn’t roll itself up and forced its way into your body. There was a person pushing all the buttons and pulling all the levers every single step of the way.


Hint – The Person is YOU!


When I hear “the weed made me a loser”, I only hear the words of a victim who is incapable of accepting responsibility for their state of being. As long as you remain in a state of victimhood, incapable of facing the dark and nasty parts of the self – you will continue to feel hollow, shitty, unproductive, unattractive and all the mean shit you tell yourself as you masturbate yourself to sleep.


Today, I’m going to show those of you who have been “struggling” to get shit done, while baked. I’ll tell you the secret to being productive and to feeling “successful!”


First you must establish how you measure success


Most people are not unhappy because of their current life circumstances, but rather the “difference in between what they have and what they believe they should have”. In other words, they are chasing after something they believe would give them happiness, or success, or fulfillment – yet even after attaining that which they so desperately seek, they still feel incomplete.


In the world of the “weed-blamer”, the reason for all their unhappiness or inability to produce any significant result has nothing to do with their own limitations or lack, but rather the endless pursuit of illusionary goods.


Earl Nightingale, was an American radio personality, motivational speaker, and author. He is known for his influential work in the field of personal development and is often regarded as the father of the modern self-help movement. While he had various perspectives on success throughout his career, one of his most well-known definitions of success is:


"Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal."


According to Nightingale, success is not merely achieving a specific outcome or attaining a certain level of wealth or status. Instead, he emphasized that true success lies in the ongoing pursuit and progress toward meaningful goals and ideals. The key is to set worthwhile objectives and work steadily towards their realization, finding fulfillment in the journey itself.


Nightingale also stressed the importance of personal growth, learning, and continuous improvement as essential elements of success. He believed that success is within the reach of anyone who is willing to define their own goals, develop a plan, and consistently take action towards their desired outcomes.


So the real question we’re left with is simple; “What is it that you truly want in life that will give you that which you desire?”


Are you even CLEAR about your own goals and objectives?


If you don’t have any clear goal or objective, then how could you measure whether you’ve gained an inch or not? How do you know when you are successful if you have nothing special in sight?


Now, some of you might come up with the excuse that you “do” have goals. You might be studying to become some occupation you might not in your heart of heart want, but makes sense form a logical perspective.


For example, “I’m going to be a doctor!” not because you have a deep calling to heal people and to dedicate your life to medicine…but because they get paid a lot.


If this is your “objective” or “goal”, I hate to break it to you – it’s not yours! It’s a false goal that promises to give you something you really want – MONEY!


If you’re studying to become a doctor for money, there are far easier and more effective ways to make money. If money is your motivation, then it will be easy for you to put things off, and why not smoke weed? I mean, your heart isn’t really into the whole “law school” or “med school” or whatever false objective you think you want to achieve.


Perhaps, you’re just doing what you’re doing because “society” deems it to be important.


None of these goals pertain to YOU. Your wants and desires are as unique as your fingerprints. Meaning, that only when you align with something you REALLY want, you’ll be able to start feeling that feeling you so desperately seek – fulfillment!


When you get CLEAR on your goals and objectives, you can start focusing your mind and attention on attaining it. You can begin devising a plan and move towards it. And when you have attained that which you desired – you will be successful! In fact, you don’t even need to attain it to be considered successful, as our buddy Earl said, "Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal."


How to get CLEAR on your goals?


You might think that it’s the weed that inhibits you from achieving your goal, but the truth is that you don’t have something that wants you to get out of bed at 5 AM in the morning. It’s okay, I didn’t have it for many years.


But once you find it, you become single-minded in your pursuit. It’s not that you spend every day working on it (which is optimal), but rather that you dedicate whatever time you have available to make it happen.


So the question is how do you know what you want?


Well, for starters, you need to stop “thinking” about it and start “feeling” it. In this instance, weed can actually be a help.


You can spark up and sit quiet, remove all distractions and just focus in on smoking your joint or bong or pipe. I call this “Mindfulness Toking”.


When you sit there, you’ll notice the thoughts in your head come alive. It’s in this moment of mental mobility that you have the opportunity “feel” your thoughts. Just ask yourself a simple question, “What is the one thing that I would love to do right now if I had no restrictions, nothing to hold me back? If money wasn’t a concern…”


It doesn’t matter how crazy or insane it may seem. The purpose of this first exercise is to simply understand what the heart wants.


When you find a thought or idea that really excites you. Take a moment and visualize you achieving the goal or objective. How does it feel? Do you still feel happy and complete? Or does it not matter that much whether you achieved it or not?


When you find something that the heart loves, you’ll know. You’ll get excited, you’ll know even though it sounds crazy.


Here’s the catch, that something crazy is always right under the surface of your being. Meaning, in all likeliness you already know what you want, you’ve just convinced yourself that it’s not for you because of money, or status, or whichever reason you come up with to tell you that you can’t possibly do “that!”


Once you have pinpointed your main objective, you need to make sure that it’s CLEAR.


CLEAR is an acronym that stands for Concise, Limited, Emotional, Achievable, and Refinable. It is a framework for setting effective and actionable goals. Let's break down each component:


  1. Concise: A CLEAR goal should be clear and specific, avoiding ambiguity. Clearly define what you want to achieve, making it easier to focus your efforts and track progress.

  2. Limited: Goals should have a specific time frame or deadline. Setting a time limit provides a sense of urgency and helps you prioritize tasks accordingly.

  3. Emotional: Connecting with the emotional aspect of your goal is essential. Ask yourself why you want to achieve it and how it aligns with your values and aspirations. Emotionally compelling goals fuel motivation and persistence.

  4. Achievable: Ensure that your goal is realistically attainable. Consider your resources, skills, and circumstances. It's important to set challenging goals, but they should still be within your reach with effort and commitment.

  5. Refinable: Goals should be flexible and subject to refinement. As you progress and gain new insights, you may need to adjust your approach or modify the goal itself. Embrace the idea of adaptability and be open to making changes as necessary.


To set up a CLEAR goal, follow these steps:

  1. Identify the specific outcome or achievement you want to attain. Make it clear and unambiguous.

  2. Define a specific timeframe or deadline for achieving the goal. This helps create a sense of urgency and provides focus.

  3. Connect with the emotional aspect of the goal. Understand why it matters to you and how it aligns with your values and aspirations.

  4. Evaluate the goal's achievability. Assess your resources, skills, and circumstances to determine if it is realistically attainable.

  5. Keep your goals flexible and open to refinement. As you progress, be willing to adapt and make adjustments to your approach or the goal itself.

Remember to write down your CLEAR goals and regularly review them to stay focused and motivated. Break them down into smaller, manageable tasks, and track your progress along the way. This is especially effective if what you truly desire is “way too big for your current self to embody”.


What I mean by this is if you can’t believe that you are a millionaire, then you can start by believing and working towards making money than your monthly income – passively. This would be the first step in the progress to being a millionaire.


Do you understand how having a clear goal and objective is key to motivating you to do the shit that others won’t do.


This is why you need something that WAKES YOU THE FUCK UP!


Lest, smoking weed is a better way to spend your time.


I workout, even if I’m baked. I write, even if I’m tired.


This is because I know where I’m going, and I know that everyday chipping away at my small goals, is getting me closer to my big one.


Nothing can stop the human mind once it has settled on a goal, and the heart is in agreement. Therefore, if you’re finding yourself unmotivated – get better goals!


Take a T-Break, see how you’re doing?


Now, I’m not saying that this will magickally solve your problems. However, it will most definitely set you in motion towards something you actually want. Now, you may have some issues with cannabis right now, and creating some distance between you and the plant might not be a bad idea.


I take tolerance breaks frequently. I go sober on different substances to check in with “baseline reality”. I understand that my body operates in a specific frequency, and that when I’m smoking I might be more “relaxed” or “tired” or what have you. This alters the frequency.


When weed becomes a dependency, it can become a problem for some. Therefore, testing yourself and living life without it for periods at a time is not a bad way to explore how you feel as a result. You can gauge just how dependent you are on it.


Perhaps, you begin to think more clearly, maybe you have more energy. Good! Then smoke as a form of recreation, when you’re done with all your “work stuff”. Use it to unwind!


Your groggy and can’t think straight. Great! Then smoke a bit, get your mind in order – and get to work!


The point here is that the only person who is ever in your way is you. It’s not your “condition”, it’s not your “race”, it’s not your “poverty”. It’s your lack of knowing what you want clearly, and going for it.


Don’t blame weed for living a mediocre life. That’s all on you!


Nonetheless, weed can become a factor for some and in those cases, when you simply are incapable of doing anything because you have outsourced your personal power too much – go cold Turkey, and stop being a bitch about it.


If it’s truly “weed” that is making you a loser…then just quit. But, deep down inside, I’m sure you’ll realize that the excuse is just that – a convenient way to dissociate yourself from your personal responsibility.


If you want to see change in your life, start focusing your mind and heart on things you actually want – AND THEN GO FOR IT!


You’ll notice a dramatic shift in your being once you do!
