Narcissistic people. They tend to have similar grievances - how well they did in the past and how unfairly people tended to treat them. It seems to be contradictory - if they did so well, how come people were able to treat them badly? But it can be explained in how the narcissistic personality functions. Narcissists honestly believe that they are superior, but this fantasy is constantly disrupted by reality. They keep swinging between the imaginary self and negative feedback they receive from the other people - and they keep defending the imaginary self by attacking others. "Fantasy self" forms as a coping mechanism for narcissists, hoping to prevent some childhood trauma from happening again. But until a productive therapy helps narcissist to reassess the past, he or she will keep repeating:
- you are not paying enough attention to me!
- you do not respect me!
- you set too many rules!
- this relationship is too confining!
- you are not being honest with me!

Why do you even wake up @5AM?
Early mornings for me used to be :
A. Stressful trips to the airports, while haven’t got enough sleep.
B. Going fishing with my dad (these were awesome but still I would wake up all triggered and exhausted.)
C. Trips to the hospital.
So far you should have already got the point that early mornings for me = no fun.
What my early mornings are now?
I take my time slowly, because everybody else is still sleeping. I make myself a cup of coffee, cook some light breakfast and listen to some audiobooks or podcasts, depending on the situation. Before I got my knee injured, I also used to jog in the morning.(The views would be even better than in the photo, trust me;))
As simple as it gets. I hate to rush somewhere, for example: school, work, whatever the case might be. I choose to enjoy my time, because good morning sets a tone for the day. Main pros:
A. You feel motivated. It’s an awesome feeling to have already done much more than your friends or other companies.
B. You learn much more about discipline. Discipline might be a huge factor in your success. F.e: you won’t be amused by that sweet donut at the coffee shop, might save some extra $ or kilos;) There is a quote by Jocko Willink(ex navy seal) - “ Discipline equals freedom.”
C. Productivity level. For some, it might be a huge game changer. Personaly, when I started rising early, it became much easier to finish the tasks in shorter amount of time. However, you should test it and then make conclusions. I just love the idea of testing and learning. Don’t be afraid to sacrifice one week;)
When not to get up early?
PRIORITISE SLEEP HOURS. Some people need 6 hours, others can’t live without 8. Basicaly, don’t sacrifice your sleep hours, so you can rise early. Hell no.
That’s the only situation that I don’t find benefits of waking up early.
As the saying goes : early bird gets the worm.
Thanks for your time❤️
I am one of many who saw almost the entire Livestream of SpaceX Demo 2 Launch. I must say when it took off, MAN! I felt it. Very inspiring Journey of Elon Musk. What an experience!!
Imagine those who saw live, must be breath taking!
Well Done to Entire team of #SpaceX and #NASA
