What is a Life Hacking Machine? You and I right?

Do you agree with the following:

We both have the abilities to bend the rules, shake things up, and believe we can live the lives we’ve always dreamed of right now. If we are not where we want to be in life yet, we know we are on the way. We enjoy the ride just as much as the outcome. We reach higher, dream bigger, and want to live larger than life lives. We push each other, are accountable to each other, and never give up. We crave connecting with people who “get it” and think like us. We do not want to be the “status quo”. We don’t think outside the box… there is no box. We recognize opportunities and don’t let them pass us by.

There is a reason you found yourself on this life hacking blog post and it is the same reason i am sharing with you what I know. Put it this way, if you don’t want to live your life to the fullest you wouldn’t be continuing to read would you?

Let’s take a look at the two terms here: “life hacking” and “machine”

Life Hacking

According to Wikipedia, life hacking refers to any trick, shortcut, skill, or novelty method that increases productivity and efficiency, in all walks of life. Here, at Life Hacking Machine, I focus on significant, life changing, life hacks. Who says you can’t have what you want and why should you have to wait until your retire to make it happen. There are no guarantees in life that you will live til a ripe old age ,and if you do, will you physically and mentally be able to do everything you “POSTPONED” in your life.

I can’t be any more clear…

If you continue to do what you’ve always done, you will continue to get what you’ve always got.

Can we agree?


Now let’s take a look at “machine”. Machine refers to your body. According to Ochsner, et al, our bodies are the best made machine’s the world will ever have and the body’s computer, the brain, is by far the most sophisticated, the finest constructed, the most efficient computer that has ever been or ever will be designed. No man-made computer can approach the efficiency of the computer each of us has.

So, What’s The Catch?

Yes, there is a catch, a very BIG CATCH. The brain has to be correctly programmed or trained to get the most out of it. Conversely, if the mind is filled with the wrong programming or training the implications can be devastating. Think about this, imagine your computer, pad, or cell phone using outdated hardware or software, what would happen? You device could get a virus, get hacked, run slow or shut down all together. Well, your body and mind works the same way.

Even your television remote must be programmed before it works right?

Simply put, you have to put the right things in to your mind and body to get what you want out right? You get out what you put in… nothing more and nothing less.

Avoid negative thoughts, negative people, time wasting activities, consumables that make you sluggish or sick, and surround yourself with positive, like minded people who can enrich your life and show you the way.

Life Hacking Machine  (defined) -is a person (YOU) who uses significant life hacks to do things others think can’t be done and YOU strive to “Unleash Your Best Life”. YOU develop a “life-time learner” mentality and are a”doer” not a “day dreamer”.

Ask yourself these 5 questions:

  • Are you defined by your past self?
  • Are you where you want to be?
  • Are you ready to do something about your life?
  • Are you ready to get started?
  • Are you running your life or is your life running you(**this one is the most important)?

Still wondering if you are or can be a “Life Hacking Machine”?

Do YOU agree with the following:

  • We all have infinite possibilities
  • We all have the same 24 hrs in a day, it’s what we do with those 24 hours that counts
  • Normal everyday people like YOU and me can do amazing things
  • You have untapped potential and greatness inside ready to come out
  • We have unique gifts that the world needs to see
  • We want to be part of something bigger
  • YOU are looking for the right directions or road map to success
  • We want to be appreciated
  • We want to make our mark
  • We realize we get one shot at life so lets make it count
  • We don’t want to end up in on our death bed wishing we would have lived differently
  • Your “Why” is big enough for you to put in the extra time and effort to unleash your best life.

Well, if you agree with the above, you are already a “Life Hacking Machine”. Use this blog as a resource and apply what you learn so you can unleash your best life. You’ve got to Unleash Your Best Life.
