The Year of The Beast

Neil DeGrasse Tyson is right. There is no astronomical significance to the New Year’s Day based on the Gregorian Calendar but there is a HUGE psychological significance. There is something about going #BeastMode at the beginning of the year. You don’t get to make compromises early, you rage towards winning.

Compromises tame the beast in you. When you slow down and start letting the regular problems of life start catching up with you, the beast is tamed. A tame beast is useless. It never rises up to expectation and is eventually slaughtered by the problems. You are back to the grind and never get above it.

An unleashed beast devours obstacles. It can either drag you kicking and screaming or you ride it screaming a war cry. Never let it be tamed. Be the savage.

There is a beast inside everyone that is screaming to be let loose. It takes a psychological trigger to free it up, then it can come out as destructive rage or constructive fervour.

Orisirisi let out the beast last year and she wrote here on Medium EVERY SINGLE DAY!!. Tuedon Morgan let her beast loose and she has done 60 marathons in over 40 countries and every continent in the World!

Her story here is inspirational. She just wanted to be fit and she let the beast loose then won World records.


My favorite beast is the Mercedes Benz S600. Some people will buy it for themselves this 2017. Why should it be them alone? As our mothers always ask “Do they have two heads?”

To buy the armored plated version of this Beast and ship it to Africa, one would have to make more than $1,000 profit every single day of the year. The goal is to find business ideas that would generate that much cash flow.

Yes. It is that extreme. Next time you find someone riding it around, know that it is $1,000 a day moving.

I don’t have to buy a car. I don’t see them as great assets. It would be great to have that kind of disposable cash to freely spend on such luxury.

This is 2017. This is “The Year of The Beast.”

We are in #BeastMode
