The Will to Win
When I was a kid growing up, futuristic sci-fi was always a staple in my list of “favorites” stable.
All Grow’d Up
Today and as an adult, I particularly enjoy subjects about the future especially as they relate to health, anti-aging and longevity medicine. If you’ve ever heard me speak (like the Vital Way podcast) or read articles I’ve written – you know that – I think aging is a mistake and I don’t want to participate. Neither should you my friend, neither should you…
This nonsense we all grew up with, “you’re just getting old,” or “you’ve just got to learn to age gracefully,” or “just accept it,” is a complete crock-pot of crispy crap-o-lah.
Here’s the Deal – “Will You.”
General Ferdinand Foch said it best, “the first condition of victory is the will to conquer.”
Health is exactly the same. Whether we’re talking about anti-aging or just even plain old happy, healthy existence – you’ve got to WANT THIS for yourself first. Then, for whatever your own reasons are – that need be important only to you – believe you DESERVE this.
“What you think… and the beliefs you have about yourself, do matter.”
– Logan Christopher, 101 Simple Steps to Radiant Health
Optimal health starts inside your mind, deep inside your mind first. Developing the WILL to live at your highest potential is best accomplished as you allow yourself to access resources for your mind – like any of Logan’s books & seek out what you need. Nutrition, optimal supplementation, like Shilajit & Tongkat Ali found at Lost Empire Herbs & eventually – augmentation (<–more about this in upcoming articles) are all important.
But tools such as these are secondary to developing your will… Literally, the prescription is, “VISUALIZE the You – what you want to become FIRST & then cultivate the will to WILL YOU into existence.” You know how – when you stop and think about it intuitively, what it takes for you to conquer.
“As long as the mind can envision that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100%.”

A large portion of society has a habit of ennobling aging and death. Its ridiculous. Can you recall a time witnessing a phenomenon like this? As you think about that, I don’t know if you can remember how it’s almost as if we are expected to allow your body to degrade into a wrinkly pile of mush without a fight.
Have you ever seen someone on TV or the movies (or life) get a diagnosis of cancer? Think about it, what’s the first thing that they ask the doctor? “How much time have I got?” As if no matter what… Death will take you.
“… cultivate a belief in invincibility.”
– Logan Christopher, 101 Simple Steps to Radiant Health
What’s really interesting is that the first predictor of survivability in any catastrophic illness or injury is, “the will to live.” Think about it. What if you were to ask yourself, “How much do you want this for yourself (and why do you want it)?” Some people are motivated by others close to you & ask questions like. “Who needs you?” To show up better, stronger, faster than before, maybe ask yourself, “Who’s relying on you to be there at your peak, highest potential?” What will make you believe in you to the point where – you believe you deserve this – and then act. Take the steps necessary to fight back. Maybe begin by doing research, reading any of Logan’s articles or books like Upgrade your Testosterone.
“Ultimately you want to [and will be able to] have the entire world’s knowledge connected directly to your mind”
– Sergey Brin, Founder of Google
As you read in the last article, remember that a little known website called Google has invested almost half a billion dollars into human immortality by 2045. Those boys over at Google are dead serious. Ever hear of an obscure magazine called Time? They’ve done more than a couple cover articles on this very topic – “Live long enough to live forever – 2045 the year Man becomes immortal.”
Bridge Over Troubled Water
Depending on who you talk to, there have been different bridges elucidated to you’re accessing radical life extension and radical life expansion. De facto immortality. In the following articles were going to expand on each of them. As a preview – an overview the “Four Bridges to Immortality” definition is as follows:
* Bridge One: Changing what you eat, change what you drink, get more sleep, stop drinking so much small-batch bourbon (even though it’s awesome) and smoking so many cigars Greg… De facto lifestyle changes.
* Bridge Two: Getting proper Medical care when it’s clinically indicated. Submit for surgery when necessary. But probably and (I believe) most importantly, using high-quality, properly sourced nutritional supplementation – like Shilajit & Tongkat Ali found at Lost Empire Herbs and eventually –
* Bridge Three: The merging of our Biology with our Technology at the Supra-Cellular level. Like we mentioned in our last article, the Parkinson’s implant, the cochlear implant, six-million dollar man level bionic prostheses and much much more.
* Bridge Four: Cellular modification at the sub-nuclear level of DNA via intentionally directed technology… Life expectancy escape said velocity of one year for every year of life – short of catastrophic trauma, individual man can live in definitely.
“I’m fascinated by the idea that DNA is digital. A gene is just a sequence of code… computer information. Biology is fast becoming just another branch of Information Technology.”
– Richard Dawkins PhD, Evolutionary biologist
What’s the point?
Ultimately – a person seeking immortality is not about just pointlessly living “forever.”
This quest is about finding those ways and means for a person to maximize your current existence, your present moment, this moment to your highest and best potential.
Seeking immortality is about your having the personal freedom, liberty & choice to live as you see fit – for all your own reasons that need be important only to you…
Remember that: “the first condition of victory is the will to conquer.”
