Welcome to explicitfacts.com, a place where future successful people come to get inspired.
This time we’re taking a look at things, most people tend to brush off under the carpet and pretend like these just don’t exist.
The problem is, we live in an imperfect world, populated by humans of different faiths, different visions, and values.
In the title of this article, we use the term brutal truths.
In a particular fashion, that’s meant to have you question the way you look at reality and what you believe to be your truths because you see the truth is different than fact.
While facts stay the same.
Truths are an ever-evolving concept that has more to do with perception than anything else.
We know that an article like this one, will not please everyone. It’ll probably offend a large portion of our audience, but the rest will benefit from it.
When putting it together, we did our best to find truths that have been in place for hundreds of years and will probably be true for hundreds more.
As an esteemed member of the Explicit Facts community, your job is, to be honest with yourself, to understand reality the way it really is.
Not the way, people want you to believe it is and then use it to your advantage.
Going through the following list will help you to better understand your position in life and help you find the correct strategies for moving forward.
We recommend you ask yourself, how much do you agree or disagree with the following statements and see which events and factors lead you to that perception.
Maybe by the end of the article, you’ll re-valuate the way you perceive yourself and your life.
Try not to be emotional about this, and do your best to be objective as the video continues, because you’re probably not going to like the information we’re about to share with you.
In a perfect world, it wouldn’t matter where you’re born, the colour of your skin, your gender or your sexual preferences.
We would all enjoy an even playing field and the best results will bubble up to the top, but we do not live in a perfect world.
We live here in this imperfect one.
If you were born in Switzerland, you’ll enjoy since the very beginning. The premium quality of life, great access to medicine, incredible education, opportunities all around you in a clean polite and efficient environment.
On the other side of the coin. If you are born a female in a country like Nepal or India and somehow managed to survive at birth, you’re letting yourself to be illiterate. Probably sold into human trafficking, before you reach your teens or be labelled as a witch and shunned from society.
If you were born in Switzerland, you have the freedom to marry whomever your heart desires and probably don’t believe in the existence of God or heaven altogether.
Flip the script over to a place like Iran, where people take the word of the Prophet seriously. Homosexuals are punished by death. Some people will be born into money. Some will discriminate based on the colour of your skin because that’s what people have been doing for thousands of years.
Be aware of this and look around for alternatives, where people are not so closed-minded.
In recent years, developing countries have made a real push towards stopping discrimination and allowing for equal opportunities. But it’s up to you to decide, what kind of world you wish to live in and then do something about it.Everything about your life is now in your own hands.
There’s no already written path for you.
You are in a race, where you put one foot in front of the other because you choose to. Ahead of you lies many crossroads.
Even right now, you can choose to take a different path than the one you’re already pursuing.
We left this one, as the bonus truth, because some people don’t want to be responsible for their own destiny.
They don’t want the responsibility of making themselves happy, of getting the life they want through hard work and discipline and instead choose to believe, it’s all just in the hands of a higher authority.
These people are like a leaf on a river. They believe they have no control over what happens to them, but the hard truth is that you are the river, not the leaf.
You have the power to craft your own path.
If anything stands in your way, you have enough strength to push through it and leave a better path for all those who will follow you.
Decide what your life should be and then get busy.
You only live once, so you best believe we’re going to want to live it the way we want to.
Emotions are the thing that makes us human, make us love the world and create incredible pieces of art, that capture every essence of what it means to be alive.
Yet the world we live in today is NOT run by emotions.
This game we call life has a very particular set of rules, which rewards efficiency and disregards emotions.
Horses are really sophisticated organisms that are able to portray and understand feelings.
Yet cars replace them, simply because they were more efficient.
The world doesn’t care about your feelings. Unless we’re talking to close friends and family, nobody cares if your feelings get hurt. And, to be honest, why should they?
Ever since you were born, you’ve seen the world through your own eyes and to yourself you believe that you are the most important being on this planet. But, it doesn’t mean the rest of us have to agree.
How many times has your judgment been clouded by fury, anger or love?
People are willing to do irrational things, that are not in their own best interest, especially when they allow emotions to take control over their actions.
A wise man will know how to use his emotions for his own benefit. He will control them and not be controlled by them.
We wanted to double down on this idea, that daily struggles steal away your life from you without giving much back.
The truth is, you’re not special, you are an organism that shares this floating rock with another eight billion people, who are just like you and another 70 billion living things, who don’t even know you exist!
There is a concept which we are truly fascinated with, it’s called the “”Overview Effect“. It’s something that astronauts get to experience when leaving Earth and looking back from a distance.
Once you’re in space you can see, how tiny the entire world is?
How we’re all in conflict for things which don’t matter? And for the realistic point of view, individuals don’t matter.
You are part of an entire living colony, that doesn’t care about the problems of the individual, because they don’t really matter.
They matter to you, but not to the colony.
It’s one of those things we plan on experiencing before we die because the overview effect changes the way you look at things, at worries, at problems, at disappointments and more.
Look at the screen right now. This is our planet viewed from space.
You are somewhere on this rock, a tiny dot that worries about the smallest details, which from this far up are non-existent.
Try to run this experiment on your own and see what you can uncover about yourself.
It’s time we all stopped thinking so small, faced the harsh truths of life… Except for those, which we can accept and do our best to live the life that’s valuable.
Guess what, people do judge a book by the cover.
You might not like it, but that says more about the way you perceive yourself than about the way the world treats you.
The fact that you know this and do nothing about it should give you something to think about.
If the world is selfish, then why not use that to your advantage?
Invest in yourself, get healthy, hit the gym, stop eating junk food and pouring so much sugar into your body.
Buy yourself a decent pair of shoes and stop wearing socks with sandals to interviews.
This is not rocket science guys.
We as humans prefer other humans who look clean and healthy.
This comes from way back in the day when people would die early from a multitude of contagious diseases.
You want to be taken seriously, then take yourself seriously.
It’s not even a culture thing, it’s about timing.
There are appropriate moments to wear a t-shirt and sweatpants and moments when you need to bring out the big-boy suits.
Even the fashion icon, Mark Zuckerberg understood this when he had his deposition.
It’s probably the easiest thing to fix if you want people to start treating you better.
You know the test you have next week, the project you’re rushing to complete, the fact that your contractor is behind on your latest development project.
All of those stress knock you down and open the door for emotions to take control.
What we’re about to tell you, can easily change your life, if you pay attention and save this tool in your arsenal for success.
Here it goes… Ask yourself, if what you’re stressing about today, will it matter five years from now? If yes, then it’s time to get even more serious about it and make sure you get it right.
On the other hand, if you’re not even going to remember it in five years, then why the hell are we spending so much time and resources on it? Just get it done, so you can move on to important things.
The five-year rule can help you understand, which actions are in your best interest and remove at least some of the noise from your life if used correctly.
It’s one of those tools, that looks simple enough, but very few people actually take the time to use it and that’s how you end up being trapped in a rat race.
We know we’ve said this before, but we have to say it again.
If you were an asshole when you are poor and you suddenly got a lot of money you’re just an asshole with money.
Now on our website explicitfacts.com, we talk a lot about the benefits of achieving financial success.
What that can mean for someone’s life, relationships and what kind of impact it can have on you as a person.
With that said, a man is not defined by what they own, but by the values they have.
In our journey, we’ve met multimillionaires who are unhappy. Surrounded by fake friends, because they envelop themselves in a layer of superficiality.
If you’re going to get wealthy, you need to do it right.
Use that money to become a more complex person.
Be wealthy in thoughts, ideas, relationships, and sure even possessions, but remember the latter does not define you.
The goal should never be to get wealthy by any means but to become such a valuable individual that the world rewards you with riches.
Please remember this one because it can make all the difference in the game of life.
This is probably the most important reality check you’ll ever get while you’re alive.
It’s one of the most brutal truths we’ve all had to deal with at some point in our lives.
Your mother, your father, your siblings, your dog, your loved ones and you are mortal and at one point every single one will cease to exist.
This alone is a strong enough reason to appreciate everything, you have in your life.
Holding grudges is stupid.
Deal with the tiny problems and don’t forget to tell anyone who is important to you, how much you care for them and how important they are to you.
Mend your relationships, especially with those who made a difference in your journey, because you might not get a second chance to do so.
After your relationship affairs are in a good place, it’s time to get serious about your life.
You will die one day. So why the hell would you want to live a boring life.
You should do, whatever it is in your power to create the life you want to live because you only get this one.
It doesn’t matter, if you believe in heaven or not. Why wouldn’t you make heaven here on earth?
Especially for you and those around you.
In our opinion, there aren’t any higher goals than living a life that means something to you, which adds value to the world as we know it.
