I want to write this article as a gratitude.
As a constant reminder and credit to a person who got me to this point (whenever it is when you read this). Without whom this website and everything that I create now probably would not exist.
Andy, from Kill Your Inner Loser.
At the time of me writing this I finally fulfilled my two-year dream – I got in contact with him and got to receive his direct feedback. This site literally started during his coaching, with me starting to work on a business. With the support I got from him and his group to finally start making it into fruition.
Many of the ideas written on my site are probably interpretations of his concepts. At least it certainly is like that now, at the moment I write this article. He was the most important person in my life for two past years. I will eternally be grateful to him, probably more than to anyone else in my life.
Currently I am about one week into this blog, and I was having worries about copying him. Almost everything I achieved, I created in my life is from his “influence”, so it is reasonable. Only now, after going deep inside my thoughts, I realize that I was running from myself.
I allowed my ego to control me, and was scared to put the truth out there –
Andy is the man who made it happen for me.
He had a huge impact on my life:
He made me believe that I can upgrade myself and my life. He (properly) taught me about self-improvement.
He put into my mind (and later I put it on my arm) the concept of “Never Quitting”. He showed me “Slight Edge”. He helped me get laid. He pushed me to overcome my approach anxiety. He gave me honesty. He gifted me gratitude.
He allowed me to do whatever I want. He allowed me to suck at the start of whatever I want. He gave me permission to be real.
And most importantly, he shown me how to be happy in the process.
He is to me like the father I never had (kudos to you if you recognize the irony).
I am creating my own path now. But I got to the start of it because of him.
It is ok that his ideas will always be a huge part of everything I create. But it is not a bad thing. I am actually very happy that it is so.
Instead, I WANT to give back the credit. He deserves a fuckton (here it is) of it.
I also want to stop worrying about not mentioning him in each and every article, and just shove this gratefulness disclaimer right on top of my blog.
So, if you found me anywhere and didn’t know about KYIL, I HIGHLY recommend going to his site, youtube and podcast. It is highly probable that he will change your life too.
You told me – “If I can do this, you sure as hell can too”.
You were fucking right.
