It feels about time to write something again. I know so many people have been waiting impatiently for my next post, hitting the refresh button of my website in a constant state of neurosis.

To be honest, I can't wait to publish this post myself. I have been craving for Facebook likes for a while now, and I truly have missed the sweet taste of dopamine. It will be great to feel accepted again, and to inevitably spending my time waiting for that glorious red notification button to light up, filling my consciousness with bliss.

But, let's get to the point. I have been up to quite a lot the last few months. Haven't made any money though, didn't get any articles published, nor did I advance my professional status.

I have, however, been quite successful, for the first time in my life I might add, to finally establish a stable defecation schedule. I’d like to share some lessons learned on this way to personal victory.

Some background first. I always have been a very turbulent defecator. Some say it's genetics, others say it's stress-related. For now at least, it remains one of the most fascinating mysteries in human history. And what would life be without the mysterious? To be honest, if you’d tell me 6 months ago that I would have had a stable shitting schedule right now, I’d ask you if you had missed your most recent psychiatrist appointments.

However, against all odds, I did it.

How? By following these simple rules for life, for which I coined the term ‘NISHO’.

By following this framework, you too, can achieve personal victory.

  • Never stop believing in yourself. Whether you say can or you can’t, you will be right – Steven De Blieck
  • Imagination. Every day before going to the toilet, I imagined myself shitting. This practice activates the mirror neurons in your brain, and preps your mind for the job to be done.
  • Show up, whether you’d like to or not. Some days I felt really tired and just wanted to sleep out. However at 8AM daily, I was there, at the toilet, ready for work.
  • Hard times expose your true self. It is in these times you learn who you’re destined to become. A lot of times, I had tears in my eyes, and my mind was filled with agony. However this gave me a surprising sense of peace once I finally accepted my faith.
  • Obsession is passion is disguise. I started seeing shit everywhere. At breakfast, it wasn’t Nutella I was seeing on my bread. There was no difference between the “I” and my bowels, we became one. The world became one big toilet.

It takes time to become a superhero, however by following the NISHO framework, success is not an option, but a definite date in the near future.

Feel free to contact me for workshop or speaking opportunities. And, as always, thank you for the dopamine.
