  1. Link to take the test: https://s.surveyanyplace.com/s/saafe Context: Among the many mentors I'm subscribed to on youtube (Leo Gura included) one of them recently released a Self-Awareness test after having gone quiet on youtube for several months, apparently with Spiral Dynamics integrated into the the test. Seemed interesting so I tried it out. I found it was well made enough that it's worth sharing here to see what you guys think. My experience with the test and the manual: The test took me around 50 minutes to answer.At the beginning of the test it said it was deliberately designed for your interpretation so I kept that in mind, so as not to answer questions too literally. At some point during the test there was a slider you have to move across the screen that I did not know was even there so, make sure you don't get stuck on that. You can take the test anonymously. You have to fill out a form, but it lets you leave most of it blank. The questions were pretty clear and easy to answer, I was pleasantly surprised of the lack of overly esoteric questions. The most impressive thing however is the manual at the end. At the end of the test, I got my own "personalized" PDF document manual, explaining what each component and sub component of each spiral dynamics level meant in relation to the scores I got in each spiral dynamic level. The entire thing is basically a 52 page self-awareness manual telling you EXACTLY where in your life you are lacking. This is the table of contents. This is an example of what your overall score in Stage beige (I just changed the numbers in photo-shop for my own privacy's sake) This is an example of the different sub component scores that make up the overall scores for beige. This is the page explaining which each one means. I have not studied the original Spiral Dynamics works but from reading through the entire manual myself, this seems to be about the most comprehensive and clear spiral dynamics test I have took so far, with all the spiral dynamic stages, including coral. This is pretty brilliant. OVERALL Pro's and Con's: Pros -Free -You can it anonymously -Clear questions -Comprehensive Manual -Quick to take -Accurate -Seems to have integrated elements from many different sources, including Jordan Peterson, Ken Wilber, Claire Graves and Don Beck etc Cons -Possible lack of questions determining certain metrics. -Results can be skewed depending on what mood your in when taking the test? I'd really like to see more test's like these. Tell me what you guys think, of if you can recommend other tests, I'd love to try them out. I feel like someone could make a test based off Leo's new video on the point of life, I don't know, tell me what you think.
  2. If you have already tried Leo's course. Try this guy. Text him on Instagram and ask to try his Foundations Course. He usually reply's. Follow the courses instructions. Personally, my introduction to self development was Leo. Leo's new videos recently, while I can understand them, are just way to advanced for me to take action on them. If your using the spiral dynamics model properly. It's important, I think, to focus on the first 3 levels, Beige (Your Health Basically) Purple (You Social Life and Relationships) Red (Your Assertiveness and willingness to take action, the proper mindset and framework.) That being said. I am a beginner, so perhaps you already have the relationships, health and stage red that you want to an optimal level. Watch Leo's and TJ Reeves videos, keep a journal, keep self-aware, keep cautious and vigilent , but take action.
  3. Thank you for the advice everyone here. It is appreciated. <3
  4. There should be only one vision board, the rest are fucking distractions.
  5. Leo every time he has to re shoot a new video
  6. It's not the truth. I don't know much. There are more factors. If you really want to know. Talking to girls is something you can directly experience. So do it.
  7. Get in contact with TJ Reeves, ask for his foundations course. Apply it,
  8. I think it's worth a shot. I know it's hard, but I would not take him blocking you to personally. I think you would get a lot out of his Foundations course. If you want , I could try talk to him and get you unblocked and access to the course for free to help with your struggle and get your shit together. No promises though, I'll have to see what he says. I would not get stuck in the skeptic mindset. Do I know his true intentions? No. But it's worth a shot, and it does not cost me much. Overanalysing will not. Investigation through experience WILL HELP, I highly recommend you do this with TJ's foundations course, which is basically about getting your shit together and it would suit you PERFECTLY. I believe it is free. It can be difficult to fall into the trap of assuming something is to good to be true. Be careful. I'm not saying I know TJ is 100% legit, but what he has to say is worth investigating. Who cares that your theory of spiral dynamics clashed with his? It does not matter, it does not help. It's no ones fault. You have to ground yourself in the practice, Mind, Body, Relationships, Business. Are you attending to any of these 4 pillars properly? If your not, of course your suffering. If you want to voice chat we can talk on discord or snapchat. You should be skeptical of your own skepticism. The best course of action is to investigate with direct experience thoroughly to find what true. If you take TJ Reeves foundations course , and LITERALLY apply what he says, you will get your shit sorted, and your life will improve. I have not taken action on it yet, but it is CLEAR to me, to what I must do. AND if I do these things, my life will improve. 100% guaranteed That being said. I'm 17. I am lazy, and I need to get my shit together. It saddens me to hear of the abuse you have had to endure. I have great hope for you. I'd give you a big hug if you were here right now. I hope you find peace on your journey. Feel free to contact me, if you ever fall into serious financial difficulties, I'll spare what I can. ( I don't have much) I believe and you. And please, if your angry at TJ , forgive him. I want you to succeed, he wants you to succeed. So what if he seems arrogant. He's offering a helping hand, like Leo, to ME , and to YOU. Take it. Please. I beg of you. 💜
  9. Thank you for this. Do you have any tips on how to not have to constantly go for a shit due to the increased food? At what times should I eat such that I'm not going to have to go for a shit in a field mid cycle. How much water did you drink and how often did you not to go for a shit a day? Go faster? Really? Would it not me drain me more for my workout?
  10. I want you to get into contact with TJ Reeves on Instagram. He perhaps can provide you with some help. https://www.instagram.com/tjreevesmindbodybuilder/?hl=en Take this assessment (he made it with his team) http://thetest.thecodetest.com/takers/register Once you have done it, message him and tell him you have taken the test and would like to do a C.O.D.E briefing session with him. He will schedule a time for you to have the session via some video call service. If you don't have a webcam use your phone. With the the help of the assessment you took he will be able to help you get your shit together and start living the good life. If you watch Leo's weekly uploads, you should watch his channels uploads too. I WANT you to do this. THIS WILL CHANGE YOU. No. I don't have a girlfriend. I have not tried hard enough. I have not push outside of comfort zone enough. Do not wait for something to happen. It's up to you. You need to stop being the biggest bully to yourself. "I'm never going to have a girlfriend?" Lies. I believe in you. I don't know much. Message me and I'll do the best I can to help you out. The main thing is to get in contact with TJ and have a code briefing session. It will change your life if you are willing
  11. Did you how Low T? From skimming around youtube and the internet,from what I gathered from skimming around was that steroids cause permanent long-term damage and decrease longevity. Which puts me off doing them entirely. Stuff life it perma damaging your kidney. I did not do too much research. Is this true or does it depend? Whats your experience.
  12. I am 17 and 125lbs. I have a small appetite. I live in a rural area. My nearest gym is 10 miles away. It's not a nice flat urban 10 miles, lots of up elevation changes, going up hills, and down hills, varying in steepness.It's cold, it's wet, the roads are shit, the drivers can be careless. I want to gain weight and muscle mass (hypertrophy). I said I was going to go to the gym this summer, after 4 days, I gave up, my body ached. The journey sucked. I gave up Cycling for me takes 50 minutes to get there. (So it takes 50 minutes of cycling each way) .Walking takes 2 hours (each way). I hate the cycling , not sure if it was just my untrained body, but it was tough on my quads, and they felt weaker everyday I did it, during that summer I did cycle down to my local town (20 minutes cycle away) quite frequently and it sucked. I'm considering making a home gym for this reason. Or, should I just tough it out? As it is my appetite is small, It is hard for to eat a lot, further more the cycling burns a minimum of 500 calories. There is no excuses, I know if I had to, I could cook up a big batch of rice and carry it with me alongside water and some olive oil in a rucksack. Run the 10 miles there. Do my workout for an 1 hour. Run 10 miles back. 5 days a week. (Or cycle, but with the elevation changes and bendy, shitty roads, it sucks equally, just takes less time) Is there any benefit of me making that commute just to get to the gym in order to gain muscle mass? I'm not anti-cardio, but fuck me, seems like it would be considerably easier to get a home gym. I'm not sure what to do. I think the most efficient option would to get some dumbbells and a bench instead of having to haul ass 20 miles to gym, 10 miles each way. I live in Ireland? If anyone has any good links to weight sets I could buy from amazon (amazon.co.uk that is) is some other UK/Eurpeon website feel free. I feel like my progress with Calisthenics is to slow. Has anyone have any experience in gaining weight and muscle mass. I'm a skinny guy and weak. This needs to be fixed. What is the best equipment I could get without having to spend a shit-ton?
