Welcome to Explicit Facts! A place where ignited minds come to get healthy, wealthy and wise!
If you have not subscribed to our website, then you are missing out.
This time we’re looking at things; most people tend to brush off under the carpet and pretend like these 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 how you look at reality and what you believe to be your truths because you see the truth is different from 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 offend a generous 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 be valid 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 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 understand your position in life better and help you find the correct strategies for moving forward.
We recommend you ask yourself; how much you agree or disagree with the following statements and see which events and factors lead you to that perception.
By the end of the article, you’ll re-evaluate 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.
It wouldn’t matter where you’re born in a perfect world, 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’d enjoy it from the very beginning. The premium quality of life, great access to medicine, excellent 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 be illiterate. It is sold into human trafficking before reaching your teens or being labelled as a witch and shunned from society.
Sex will be a prohibited topic. Kids will lead a Sexually Confused Life and will be forced to satisfy their curiosity for knowledge about sex through unverified and dangerous sources like friends, the internet, and porn movies (which shows women as a commodity). But even after so many restrictions, India happens to have the World’s Second Largest Population In World!
If you were born in Switzerland, you have the freedom to marry whomever your heart desires and 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. A place where Orgasm is just a Distant Dream for women Part 1 and Part 2!
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.
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 destiny.
They don’t want the responsibility of making themselves happy, of getting the life they want through demanding 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 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. All-important choices of life are in your own hands. Also, you can very well define your luck.
You only live once, so you best believe we’re going to want to live it the way we want to. So, you should know about the things You Should Never Apologize For…!
Emotions are the thing that makes us human, make us love the world, and create incredible pieces of art, which captures every essence of what it means to be alive.
Yet, the world we live in today is NOT run by emotions.
We call life a very particular set of rules, which rewards efficiency and disregards emotions.
Horses are sophisticated organisms that can 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 fury, anger, or love clouded your judgment?
People are willing to do irrational things, which are not in their own best interest, especially when they allow emotions to control their actions.
A wise man will know how to use his emotions for his benefit. He will control them and not be controlled by them.
We wanted to double down on this idea, that daily struggles steal 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, just like you and another 70 billion living things, who don’t even know you exist!
There is a concept which we are genuinely 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 from the realistic point of view, individuals don’t matter.
You are part of an entire living colony, which doesn’t care about the individual’s problems because they don’t matter.
They matter to you, but not to the colony.
It’s one of those things we plan to experience 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 minor 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 that we can accept and do our best to live a valuable life.
Guess what? People do judge a book by the cover.
You might not like it, but that says more about how 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 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 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.
We’re about to tell you that 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 are we spending so much time and resources on it? Just get it done so that 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 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 repeat it about the Lies, You Love To Tell Yourself!
If you were an asshole when you are poor and 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 their values.
We’ve met multimillionaires who are unhappy in our journey. Fake friends always surround them 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 the most crucial 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 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 would you want to live a boring life?
It would be best if you did, 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.
Being alive and living your life are two different concepts.
Life is made of small moments, which make the blood rush through your veins.
Moments that stick around in your consciousness. That’s when you are truly alive. But, what about the minutes and hours spent stuck in traffic.
Will those be moments when you’re just dying? These moments have no importance, are not memorable and (pun intended). They take you nowhere.
You’ve heard the concept phrased in multiple separate ways. Like, if today was the last day of your life, would you be happy doing what you’re doing?
Many people make the mistake of getting trapped in a rat race, and they forget to live.
Time goes by so fast, and you won’t realize when your entire life has passed you by.
Try to track how your life is going.
Where were you 12 months ago?
Did anything change?
Are you better now?
Where will you be in another 12 months from now?
You’d be shocked how few people ask themselves these kinds of questions and even less have a plan of what to do with the answer.
No matter what your goals are in life, it would be a real shame to go through life without achieving them.
Without experiencing the feeling of fulfilment and getting to enjoy all the fantastic experiences, life must wait for you.
It’s up to you to act and to make sure that the life you live is the one worth remembering when you’re on your deathbed.
Please remember this.
Write it big on your vision board or somewhere, you’ll be constantly reminded to check your reality.
One of the most shocking things we’ve learned in our research is how many people are constantly busy but never manage to move ahead! This has to do with people allotting way more time and resources than two urgent but not important things.
We understand that you need to clean the house and get toilet paper from the store. But, if that’s what keeps you busy every single day, you won’t have any time to get anything done that has an impact on your life.
The most critical pillars in someone’s life are health, relationships, self-development, and freedom with security.
If an action doesn’t positively fall into these four, it’s not essential for you and those around you.
We all have things that we have to get done.
Things that put food on the table and more.
The idea is to escape the trap of doing only those things and never getting around to the significant ones.
When’s the last time you did something meaningful for yourself?
It’s time to prioritize those things and stop wasting your time.
How many people have you heard saying they plan to do something but never deliver on that promise?
How many people say they have ideas but never even put them into action?
Life is about putting your actions where your mouth is, and it’s time to stop lying to yourself.
The world is split between people who say they’re going to do something and those that get the job done.
You might not like to hear this, but everyone can talk, and if you’ve read our previous article, you know that talk is cheap.
You’re in this for yourself, and the worst thing you can do is start believing your lies.
The world rewards those that get things done.
So, if you have any plans to make a difference in this short life of yours, it’s time to cut the crap and get busy already.
It’s always shocking to hear how many people believe the spread around by books like the secret, which says that… all you have to do is think about what you want in the universe, or some mystical power will provide you with precisely that. You don’t need to do anything else.
If positive thinking is your plan to succeed, you better hope to get lucky. Otherwise, you’ll be faced with a very harsh reality.
Positive thinking is a wish.
Something you wish to happen while putting in as little effort toward it as possible. If this is you, you’re in the same campus four-leaf clovers shooting stars and Santa.
With the proper discipline and demanding work behind it, a wish can become a plan. But it doesn’t work the other way around.
You should stay positive; you should be optimistic about your future.
It would be best if you believe in yourself.
Believe that you have a real shot at getting it and then take massive amounts of action over extended periods while making many sacrifices.
You might not have realized it before reading this article, but everyone wants to be successful. But only the best players of the game get to win.
Most people you meet in life are all out for themselves.
Everyone is trying as hard as they can to make themselves happy, successful, or whatever their definition of success is.
The hard truth about happiness is that you cannot achieve sustainable happiness by being a single person impacted by your actions.
You can achieve glimpses of happiness, but they will not stick around.
Happiness doesn’t come from things; it comes from how other people feel, which happens to brush off on you. Especially if you’re the one who created their happiness in the first place.
This is such a substantial truth because people fail to realize this until later in life.
Everyone is pursuing their happiness and even if they get all the money they want in the world… All the fame in the world.
They realize they still haven’t gotten it yet, and it leads to depression or even worse. This happens because the entire concept is counterintuitive, while in most life objectives, you need to take care of yourself before taking care of anyone else.
When it comes to happiness, the world seems to be flipped, you can take care of others, and the result is you taking care of yourself.
Let that sink in for a while, and then have a look at your own life.
Are you happy?
What generated this happiness?
Who is responsible for it?
Which actions led to your state of happiness?
When’s the last time you made someone happy?
The answers to all these questions will give you a better understanding of your happiness and which actions caused it.
Once you know that, hunt for that feeling and get as close to it as possible.
The truth is, your life would be a lot better if you had more money in the bank than you have right now.
Your sex life would be a lot better if you were famous.
And you would feel a lot better about your life if you were a successful person, no matter what success means to you.
Anyone who says otherwise is lying or stupid.
Money, fame, and success are tools that you can use to become anything you want.
If you want to donate your wealth to the underprivileged and live as a monk in the Himalayas, you get to do that.
If you want to travel the world and discover distinct cultures, ideas, and ideologies that are also an option.
Success means you have options.
Your reality does not constrain you… You can say no or yes when you feel like it.
Although money doesn’t buy your happiness, it can purchase positive experiences for you and those you care about, which will evolve into personal satisfaction when used correctly.
Stop villainizing successful people just because they live better lives than you do.
Being born in a broke environment is a matter of chance, but dying broke is a matter of choice.
Poor people behave differently than the middle class and the rich. They have different habits. They find more excuses. They might have been dealt a tougher hand, to begin with, but they call it quits as soon as they can and accept their current reality as destiny without giving it their all to improve their current situation.
For anyone to achieve financial success, they need a particular set of tools which to our surprise, most people never research and acquire them.
These tools can make anyone rich, get anyone the life they want if used to their fullest potential.
Although a good starting hand helps.
You can still do it even if you’ve been dealt with and an unfairly bad one.
These tools guarantee success, they’re called learning, discipline, creativity, and demanding work.
When people think of education, they immediately associate the term with expensive MBAs or universities reserved for the super-rich.
The truth is you can learn more about success in life by studying successful people, by reading their stories and looking for patterns and their behaviours.
If you go through our entire library of videos on successful people, you’ll find that all of them never stop learning. They’re all disciplined as hell. They use their creative juices as much as possible, and they’ve been putting in demanding work since they can remember without planning to stop anytime soon.
It’s all about deciding to do whatever it takes to create a better life for myself and those I care about; after that give it your all.
The irony is poor people stay poor because they’re acting like they’re rich, and the rich get richer because they keep working like they’re poor.
Most people never accept this because they believe they can’t win. So, they try to change the rules so that everyone gets a participation trophy! Yuck!!!
The most beautiful thing is when they realize that what goes around doesn’t always come back around, that some people never get theirs. That people who you think are bullies were playing the game, and you were just underperforming.
Just because you think someone isn’t worthy of success based on your idea of reality doesn’t mean they’re not ahead of you.
In the words of the mythical internet, don’t hate the player… hate the game!
Guess what, in life, you’ll meet a lot of people who you think are assholes, just because you don’t like the way they’re behaving.
Unfortunately for you, they’re still playing within the rules of the game.
The truth is you’re just comparing yourself to the wrong person.
Life is a competition, but it’s a competition against yourself, against the hard reality that you’re either going to be a successful person or fade away into mediocrity.
It’s all up to you about how you’re going to play the game.
The best option is to spend as much time studying the rules of the game and then play the rulebook and not against other people.
Who cares how many people are in the race if the only person that matters from your perspective is yourself?
Make sure you win that race with your previous self and keep growing until you win all the way.
Your personality is the sum of your experiences up to this point.
If your upbringing were slightly different, you would have been completely another person. But the world sees us as we choose to present ourselves.
We are all playing roles when engaging with others.
We try to put our best foot forward.
We want to be liked and people to be interested in the things that we find fascinating.
We share our hobbies, our interests and always try to find common ground with others so that they’ll accept us.
Take the time to analyze how you behave around different people, the way your personality suddenly changes, and you present yourself in a slightly different light.
Why do we do that as humans?
It all boils down to our survival instincts.
We want to survive, so we’ll do whatever it takes to further our agenda.
You want to be the best for yourself, don’t you?
Well, guess what, everybody does, and some people take themselves very seriously.

Be careful! You keep around you as most of them will show only a mask, to disappear from your life when your journeys are no longer sharing the same destination.
How many childhood friends do you not stay connected with because you no longer have anything in common with them?
Without even knowing it, people wear masks throughout their whole lives, switching from one to another.
That’s why authenticity has become such a luxury because everybody is trying to be someone else, and very few are successful by being themselves.
