Amazing First Crete Experience

Richard Ozols

I’ve always wanted to visit Crete after reading a book called “Natural Born Heroes”. Probably one of the most interesting books I have ever read. So far, the weather is amazing, the people are extremely nice and the food is fantastic ☀️

Enjoying Crete 🖤

Now that I am more consistent with my daily journaling and I am writing down more vivid and detailed emotional experiences I understand how much everything is changing within me. I am building further and stronger understanding of my mind, deep emotions, core values and self-expression. This in return fills up my gratitude towards a realisation that I have created a life of calm self-expression and have been avoiding destructive habits like indulging in short-term pleasures. I feel like I am getting closer and closer to finding the right emotional mix and daily routine that brings balance, order, rhythm and harmony. I find it much easier to meditate and slip into a deeper trance, thanks to the feeling of calmness that silences overthinking and brings comfort with emptiness in my mind. Music and sounds have become much more profound experiences as they tune my mind for laser-like focus towards mental or physical execution, quickly putting me in a deep emotional state driving Heaven like peace of Hell life fire when I need it to perform at my best.

I am becoming more comfortable with emotional documentation and describing my state of mind. When overthinking is absent from my mind, it makes decision making a once of choice. The general acceptance of everyone and everything coupled with a lack of attachment towards unimportant things has made it easier to deal with negativity to the point where it is neutral from an experiential perspective. I feel that this will become an essential aspect of growth in years to come where my commitment will remain high and strong in light of outside forces swaying me from my course towards my North Star. 

Over the past week, I was very mindful about the inputs I was exposed to and the people I met and spoken too. Exposing myself to the right content and like-minded people is helping me to make sense of what I am building. I was very consistent with fitness and mindfulness. Going back to full raw foods was a great decision as I stopped experimenting with boiled quinoa and cooked vegetables as one of my one meal a day dishes. The results in energy, happiness and fulfilment have been quite amazing. The week started very productively and calmness washed over my mind and body, and continued through the week as my fulfilment rose. I spent a good amount of time with few close people who are very supportive of my efforts and have a powerful energy of their own. I feel that brought additional light into my life.

“Few” Paragraphs From My Daily Journals

*Please note, this is as close to copy paste from my journal as it gets. This is not creative writing. Please ignore style, profanity, mistakes and me just dumping my thoughts on paper.

Monday - Fuck!

I am on a mission to fucking dominate this god damn beautiful world with love. My pleasure is my fire, the wilder, the better. I have accepted everything, all outcomes that led to my ultimate vision. I have been empowered by my wholeheartedness as an all in investment in my life. I follow my long term mission and vision. Fuck the material possessions. I am in this with my whole heart. I feel my soul will jump out from my body how wild the fire is raging and flowing. Insane, the way I feel. What the fuck have I done to myself. My mind and body. I have liberated myself from thought. I don't feel constrained by the past nor future. I am alive. I feel love, and I want to share my love. There is no end of the feeling of light that is so blinding. Fucking insane. I have won. I win by means of love. I need nothing more to achieve the state of happiness. It is here, and I have not attached myself to it. 

Tuesday - Realisation!

I feel that I want to take more and more action. As I always write, I want to take massive imperfect action. I defiantly feel I have changed since the weekend and I want to push myself further, and now I know that I want to do it through documentation and pushing my limits. I want to wake up early to be able to focus on my morning routine and get shit done to prime myself for the day ahead :) Loving the journey.

Fucking realisation. If you saw yourself in the future. 10 years from now being where you have set your vision to be. You would fucking do everything prescribed on a daily basis to get there. The issue is that we don't see us on the other side. The changed version of us. We always want to see quick results in the short term. I see myself 10 years from now. That's why I am not concerned on irrelevant short-term outcomes. I don't see my actions related to the current moment. They all are projected into the far future. 

The reason why I am so calm and collected is that I have already visualised myself 10 years from now and I am clear what actions I need to take to get there. Thus there is complete confidence in the journey because I know where it is leading me to. By being mindful I observe my thoughts and feelings to make sure I am enjoying the journey as I move towards my vision day by day. 

After speaking to a close person about relationships and having experienced powerful like-minded people over the last year, I now know what type of relationships I want to cultivate. What energy I want to have around me. It's like discovering a new way to experience life that's much more enjoyable, so why would you ever subject yourself to the old ways. Once the Universe connects you with the right person, the experience expands your mind and you immediately eliminate 99% of close relationships opportunities with people because you know what you are after. 

I want to find ways how to push myself in every aspect of my life. Go whole heart with everything. Leave nothing to chance and leave no doubt, attachment to results or regret that actions were not done wholeheartedly. Apply this to everyone and everything. I want to focus on work and put all of myself in it, wholeheartedly without distractions or other bullshit. Whatever it takes. Getting up at early dawn or anything else is a must if that gets me in it with full devotion. 

Wednesday - Rush!

I had a great chat with a close person yesterday night. I explained how she helped me to fully let go of emotions I have been forcing myself not to experience. I also feel that she has allowed me to understand what I have grown into over the past few years. I.e the person I have developed myself into. Even more so I feel that I have let go of any attachments and unrealistic needs for other people and by letting go and allowing my emotions and thoughts to flow I have made sure that I am entirely focused on the present and not affected by my past decisions and actions or future outlook. Yes, I understand that I am being shaped by my past actions, but I am acutely aware that I am in full control over my present actions and I can moild and shape myself as I need to become the person I truly am and the core values I follow. 

I am still working towards my morning ritual and going beyond my limitations to experience something I believe is my true self. I don’t need any confirmation or validation. I am what I am, and I will do what I have set out to accomplish. So my morning and night rituals will be definitive and non-negotiable :)

I feel I have let go. Let go of the past as my mind becomes free from limits and conflicts. I have at the same time accepted the unknown future. Yes, I have a strong and unshakable vision, but the journey will bring many unknowns, and I will face them with a lack of attachment, judgment and fear. The only thing I really fear is regret, the regret of not taking action. I feel so much potential within me as my fire burns strong and high guiding me throughout my journey with raw feelings and love. 

If I dig deep, and I mean deep inside me. Past the raging fire. Past the steel walls that keep my will in place. I find light that radiates from my soul and guides me towards my north start. I know who I am and what I have set out to accomplish in my lifetime. I already have everything. I need to unconditionally devote myself to the journey. I have been blessed with a clear mind that allows me to share my love and guide others. I am free. 

I feel I want to push my limits every day, and sometimes I am held back by my mind, but I have now shifted, and I will overcome and overpower my thoughts. I want to wake up early, I want to run each morning, I want to have one raw meal each day, I want to use the mask and push my body daily, I want to write what my fire expresses in words and I want to be focused and doing deep work! Fuck man I want that so much and I know that I am already doing it!

My fire overwhelms me and sets by soul on fire. My body reacts and feels empowered by the immense power generated by my mind as it stays mindful and detached. Euphoria is what comes to mind and my physical experiences. 

Chat with a close person after sunset and the emotions and feelings it generated

  • I feel overwhelmed with happiness and love today
  • My body feels like it is made of steel as the energy surges through my body
  • I feel I am very close to unlocking my ultimate being
  • It's like you can reach out with your hand and have anything and everything
  • And the reason why is because you already have everything
  • It also feels like my mind and body are learning how to call upon this being and euphoria at will
  • There is so much to share, and my deepest desire is to share this insane state of mind in the form of love
  • As crazy as it sounds, if for whatever reason I had to give up my life, I would feel at peace with it
  • As I lay here with unshakable conviction and feel the whole world opening up to my mind. I see a clear path to freedom, the freedom of endless and passionate love. The love you have unlocked within me.

I used the energy and positivity from yesterday night to prime myself this morning :)

Thursday - Happiness Hype!

I feel that I am untangling the web of thoughts and complexities in my mind to set free myself from inaction. Currently, I am under the impression that I am almost at the point where I have turned off my thoughts at most times and allow myself to flow freely and experience freely. This heightens my experiences and allows me to draw upon my happiness and gratitude. Wholehearted commitment becomes much easier as I am driven and empowered by my core values and strong feelings. There is so much love that flows through my body. 

I think going back to raw will be a great decision as I felt much more empowered and had a powerful sense of euphoria yesterday evening and night where I felt like I was on drugs. My body was stiff with motivation and empowerment. It felt like I could run endlessly and move fucking mountains. Same as Sunday when I went Raw and did sauna and sports I think that really empowered me. 

I really want to own my day and everything around my time. The reason I want to wake up early is so that I can focus on my morning ritual to prime myself for the day ahead.

Friday - Love!

I am in fucking heaven. I need to pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming. Is this shit for real? Man, I love life! I have committed to my journey. The visions are so grand and bold that I will push every single drop of will to make them happen and I will succeed in following my journey and staying true to my core values. 

I have really understood the value of shared journeys. I shared my current frame of mind with a close person and how my thinking has started changing after coming back from New York. After doing solo travel and having a partner I was not able to fully commit to for several reasons. I think I lost something in myself or locked certain emotions. Now I know that I am growing fast because I have committed myself to be in tune with my inner emotions and my real self. After discovering myself on a deep level, I understand the importance of staying true to yourself. The further I go the further I discover myself and tune my mind and body with the relentless laser focused vision, and I am ready to follow the light ahead of me. I have let go of any attachment to emotions and needs. I still have the same thoughts and experiences, but now I have chosen not to be controlled by them and experience the world in the colors I chose. My vision is completely altered and narrowed down to the utmost importance that I believe in. I am committed to pushing myself, and I will do that physically and mentally every day. I will challenge myself on a weekly basis with everything I can think of, from ice baths to doing crazy mental and physical feats to test my body and mind and experience the world in the most amazing way and at the same time staying true to myself.

I now know that I want to share this journey with someone who will understand me and who I can share all the immense love and energy with. Once I fully commit to my journey there will be no turning back. I don’t need the other person to commit to anything, nor I will be committed to their expectations or attachment. All I need is respect, love and understanding for my choice to go all in unconditionally. I imagine myself at a roulette table where the stakes are my whole life, being, worth, positions, close people, everything that defines me. I can only make one bet and stick to that bet. My mind is be completely free from fear or anxiety, this will be the most certain decision in my life one that I can physically feel the outcome of. Instead of going back or red, I would go for a specific number on the table. Putting everything, literally everything on that number with such conviction that I felt the hellfire burning in my body. This is how I feel and how committed I am to my journey and vision. I understand that I have chosen to say “No” to 99.999% of things and opportunities in life, to focus on that one small part that is me and defines me. This means people, dreams, needs, wants and possessions. I would love to know that I have a family close supporting my decisions and my ultimate being and ambition. I am fucking committed. Crazy, yes I am and let others look at me as one as I unconditionally commit my being to the journey. 

In short! I am comfortable with saying "No" to 99.999% of things in life because I have gone "All in" on the 00.001% of things that truly speak to me and are a direct expression of my being. 

The last few days have put me in a crazy euphoria helping me to connect even deeper with my body and mind to express my fire. The emotion driven sex I had showed me that I am in complete control over my body… 

*I’ll stop Friday here :)

Saturday - Confessions!

Wow. I love what I am creating here. As I write this, I feel my eyes tiering up fuelled by happiness and fulfilment. Something that is increasing day by day. Fuck how happy I feel. It's like I have discovered the triggers of love, happiness, fulfilment, passion, discipline, calmness and zen that I have control over. I feel my life in slow motions as it takes my breath away. I am listening to Berlin - Take My Breath Away and feeling the music vibrate through my body and soul. I am overwhelmed with emotions of accomplishment. I feel like I have accomplished an important chapter in my life that will set ablaze my further life and I will never look back. It seems like I have come to an end of a chapter and completed the first volume of a series of countless books. As I take a good look at the book, read the last page few times and set it ablaze. Never to look back and keep my mind straight, chest high and eyes focused on the journey ahead. My mind and body is fully present fully aware of the passing emotions and thoughts. I am in complete control over any reactions and attachment as they grab my passing thoughts to get my attention. 

I will try to articulate as best as I can how I feel right now. All the passing thoughts and emotions that enter my mind are completely free to roam around and are in no way interrupted of forced out of existence. It's like a highway with a never ending flow of cars. Any emotion or thought that catches my attention is quickly dealt by my mindfulness. If my mind tries to react or build attachment to anything it is quickly let go, forgiven, appreciated and learned from. It feels like my emotions and thoughts are like water that one tries to hold in one of his hands, but as quickly as the hand fills up with the water it washes away leaving a tiny bit of moisture that I inspect and slowly turn my hand upside down as the water drips away. 

As the sun faded away… You came into view, taking my breath away. I felt the calm feeling of an ocean washing away all my thoughts like words written in the sand. Overwhelmed and overpowered by the fire of endless love, making my body weak and forcing me to drop on my knees. I stare at the distant horizon where the ocean and sky become one. My body forms a feeling so strong and high like nothing I have ever experienced before, leaving me suspended in endless space and time. Everything suddenly falls into place as mind accepts every possible outcome, drying out of existence all the attachments like water droplets in the hot sand. From the deepest parts of my soul, I thank the universe for every living being that sets foot in this beautiful world. My love is yours. 

Sunday - Fulfilment!

Respect! You, Me, The Universe. I’ve let go. Let go of all attachment, you can attack me, but you will never break me. I feel I have attained inner peace and outer fire. Even with the hell like fire raging inside me, you would not believe the level of heaven like peace that takes shape within me. I feel like I have attained balance in the most important parts of my life. I am physically, mentally and socially free. Free from expectations, judgment, regret, thoughts and limitations. The love what is building inside me. It is destined to be shared and I have accepted every living being as they come. For me the world is perfect, everyone is perfect. I have distanced myself from perfection, there is only acceptance. I accept you as you come. There is no judgment. I know and feel the struggle we all face in life. Thus I respect every single living being and pass on any judgment. This brings peace and abundance of simplicity in my life and mind. My mind is like a flowing river of love that touches all parts of my body and anyone who I lay my touch and hands on. I am fulfilled and I will be fulfilled as long as I strive for mindfulness, peace and complete silence of mind and share appreciation of respect, love and compassion. EQ is my IQ. 

I have stopped asking what is possible, I have started asking what is not possible. 

I shared a summary of my thoughts in my Instagram post caption.

“Love and respect. You, me, the Universe. Even with the hell like fire raging inside me, I have attained heaven like peace that takes shape within me. I have stopped asking questions. Not because I know all the answers, I have simply accepted all the outcomes that I have no control over. I feel social, mental and physical freedom. I am free from the mental complexity. I am realising and living my dream. Love and respect.”

I spoke today with a close person about the mind and consuming lots of content each day. And it really got me thinking about the fact that I consume about 5 hours of podcasts and books every day that I do it in x2 the speed, so technically I consume 10 hours of audio content every day where experts from different fields like science, business, nutrition, innovation, society and technology discuss ideas, recent events and share their frame of thought. Now I understand that all of these years I have been shaped by all this content into the person I am today and all this information is constantly changing me, it changes my thinking towards life. My mind is expanded every day with new information that I can choose to use or keep as a reference. I feel the unbelievable power in the fact that all this content is framing my way of thinking and helping me to make faster and better decisions. Driven by real life events and trends that are occurring in real time. Crazy.

I had a chill drive down to the beach and now enjoying my time here and reflecting on the past week and reading my journal and diaries. Some of the journal entries are quite insane, driven by such love and positivity that it makes me wonder can this euphoria go even further, but now I understand that there is really now limit and that drives even more fulfilment and happiness. I guess I am trying to say that I am very happy right now :)

*I decided to censor myself a bit with below journal entries. I excluded some very personal stuff that I need to get more comfortable with sharing, but most of it is still there.

Daily Calm Quotes

My Mission Statement 

I am driven and fulfilled by the fire that burns inside me. My vision is to play a vital role in the colonization of Mars in the next 30 years. That is my north star. My decisions are made with very long-term outcomes in mind. I am not driven by short-term pleasures and needs. On the professional side, I am building a business that will help me support my investments in biotech and AI startups. All the experimentation on my mind and body is to explain and explore the limits of humans.

First Entry of My Weekly Journal

Richard Ozols

My first weekly summary, purely for documentation purposes and driven by interest in self discovery. I have wanted to do this for some time now but needed to wrap my head around the how and why I want to do this.  Now that I know how and I have a strong why I think it will be something that I will have no trouble to sustain over a longer period of time. Committing to something and making it happen consistently is something I have struggled with for a long time. Building some core habits over the years like meditation, fitness and eating once a day has allowed me to see the value of daily repetition. The great aspect of daily repetition is that it usually brings visible signs of growth much faster and allows me to sustain momentum and discipline. I have stopped relying on my motivation for some time now, but I make use of it when it is there to help me drive my discipline further and use that energy to incorporate new habits or advance existing ones. Now that I feel the momentum in my core life habits I can more easily stay focused on my north start without getting tempted into short-term outcomes and pleasures. 

One of the areas I want to exert my energy on is documentation. I would love to and I am looking for ways to better document my journey and share my growth over a sustained period of time. I want to make use of writing, photo, audio and video to document my personal life and business. The personal side is already getting documented quite well on Instagram, but I have left out quite a lot of aspects of the whole picture. I love business and building something big and global, I feel that over the last decade I have built up my sales, technology, leader and product management skills to a decent level that would help other aspiring entrepreneurs to push through the tough parts of building a business. I feel that I have figured out how I will drive the documentation of my professional side in the form of a new business that will be focused on education. 

This week turned out quite active and eventful. Had lots of positive things developing on the business side that is motivating further growth and validating that we are moving in the right direction. Great opportunity with US government to help them with their mobile technology efforts. Multiple large global enterprises are interested spending face to face time with us to better understand how they can make us of our product globally within their organisations and for their client needs. We all together as a team are building greater momentum in becoming more effective. I feel that business growth is driving a fair share of my fulfilment and euphoria in life. I am also finding a way how to devote more of my time on working on the business, instead of in the business. Probably just need to block out more time for thinking and strategising. From day to day personal perspective I am very happy how I felt this week, as the feeling of fulfilment and growth is quite an important way how I gage my happiness. I was able to focus on fitness and health to further drive my peak performance. Spent time with close and likeminded friends who always share their positive vibes and I can share mine in return. I have been visualising and describing how I want to see myself and my life over the last few years and I can more so feel now that this is manifesting into reality as the perception of growth is increasing and I can see that I am becoming the person I have set out to be. The days were a good mix of hard hustle and Zen that allowed me to dig a bit deeper in my self-discovery journey. 

Few Paragraphs From My Daily Journals

As I further develop my mindfulness, I am starting to experience a power shift. My mind is slowly losing ground to the ever growing presence or fire and love that takes shape. As I dig deeper into my self-being, I can only find more fire and love that empower my mindfulness and gratitude. My journey of self-discovery has resulted in indescribable happiness and love towards life. Further and further I understand that even though I have come far, the journey will never be complete. Even if my mind lived for thousands of years, the journey of self-discovery and being would never end. I have bound my happiness to live alongside my journey that eliminates any attachment to outcomes. Thus there is not much that upsets my happiness. There are no expectations, no regrets, only the journey and pure love and mindfulness. My ultimate vision in life is not one of grand achievements or monetary wealth. But one that allows me to stay true to my core values and deepest self-expression. One that brings fulfilment and acceptance of the unknown with absence of regret.

My point of view. My point of view has separated from ego, expectation and attachment. I truly feel I have liberated my conscious mind from the past and future. The simple form of being brings beauty and appreciation for the smallest of things and shortest of moments. My feelings are heightened to experience the worlds deepest layers. My mind feels calm even if there is so much more happiness and love. One would fear there is much more to lose now. But once this experience comes to being, it alters your relationship to fear and the unknown. I have asked myself many times and I do even more so frequently now. What if I lose everything and I am left with nothing, stripped down to bare skin. Would I still be happy and fulfilled with life? The answer is - Yes! With a strong conviction I feel I do and I will do everything in my power to sustain a wholehearted yes to this question for the rest of my life.

How I feel when I start the day focused on my most important ritual - Everything felt into place as I was set to succeed from the first hour of the day. Early rise, meditation, high altitude run and cold shower. That kicked me into high gear. Coffee and getting work down was an added bonus that increased my fulfilment. Hitting the gym later was a very empowering experience that got me in a fucking do it to the best ability kinda mood. And I feel I was pushing it, but there is much more to push.

    Current Eating Habits

    I am still focused on having one meal a day. The meal is a mix of high-fat foods i.e. ketogenic and plant based. I am starting to use the word paleo more. My meals consist of green vegetable smoothies with vegan based protein, nuts and seeds. Kale and avocado salad and quinoa bowl with veggies and avocado. So lots of avocados. I take some supplements like BCAA, Vit. B, Vit. C, Vit. D, Omegas, spirulina, magnesium, MCT oil, maca, chia and turmeric. I drink 2 cups of coffee every morning and drink water when I feel I need to.

    Parting Thoughts

    I am looking forward to each new day as I increase my momentum that drives fulfilment and further confidence. Certain things become easier to manage and maintain that allows me to increase my capacity for new and more changing goals and habits to pursue.

    My Commitment to Standing Desks

    Richard Ozols

    My first thought of moving to a standing desk came about when I started feeling the effects of sitting all day. My lower back would always build up tension that would result in pain. Not as bad that it would render my productivity useless, but still unpleasant. Due to my entrepreneurial tendencies, I am always trying to find free time to do some work. I tend to get into the flow quick and lose track of time. I ended up sitting for long hours at offices, living rooms, kitchens, coffee shops or parks. Standing up only when my butt got numb or I felt pain building up in my lower or upper back. To relieve some of the physical side effects of sitting I first moved to a fitness ball. That ended up an excellent idea. Whenever I was working from home, and that became a lot of my working time, I was using the fitness ball. This was a great lower back pain relief and no numb butt, and I was feeling more energized and productive.

    Now came time for a standing desk. My only concern was staying productive. After doing some research online about the pros and cons of standing all day. I decided it was time to make the switch. I did not want to spend $500-$1000 on a dedicated standing desk, so I looked into some alternatives. I already had a working desk that I wanted to repurpose. I found a blog post explaining how to build a standing desk by hacking together few Ikea items for about $30. After a visit to Ikea, I ended up with my first standing desk. I think there were only about 2 or 3 times when things fell apart.

    This was in my London apartment bedroom in December 2013.

    It was not the most stable construction, but it served its purpose well. Few days in and I was hooked and stopped thinking about the need of sitting. I did not switch between standing and sitting as other adopters have suggested. I ended up using the standing desk all the time. I noticed the benefits straight away. No back pain, posture improved and my energy increased.

    Then came the day I decided to start traveling around the world. And the thought that I will not be able to use a standing desk was becoming a reality. I researched online about portable standing desk options and followed some Kickstarter projects. But did not find anything promising or worthwhile getting. I felt like my standing desk habit came to an abrupt end.

    Soon after I started traveling my creative juices and the desire for a standing desk kicked in. I started putting together my now standing desk variations out of what I had where I was staying. I then understood that there is always a way if there is a will when it comes to standing desks. Here are some of my standing desk variations while I was traveling around Asia.

    Last year while staying at home I ended up getting my first "official" standing desk. It served its purpose well while I was using it and the ability to adjust the height was great.

    But then my traveler bug kicked back in, and I was on the road again. Now traveling and standing while working was no longer an issue. I only need a stand for my laptop to get it as close as possible to my eye level. Here are some of my standing desk variations while traveling around Spain.

    Now I am finally back home and using my standing desk, and I love it. I would like to be able to stand everywhere where work takes me. But I am happy as long as I do the majority of my work while on a standing desk.

    Great Non-Tech Habits To Crush Your Day

    Richard Ozols

    Over the last few years, I have been on a productivity and healthy habit spree. Fuelled by a strong desire to become a successful entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship is like a roller coaster ride, with it’s highs and lows. I wanted to make sure I could survive all the lows and create enough highs. So why not give myself a better chance by developing lots of great habits.

    I have acquired habits from books, blogs, videos, experiments and speaking to likeminded people. Habits with the highest impact have stuck around and I am happy to have them in my daily routine. The main personal areas I track for impact are happiness, fulfilment, energy and focus.

    Westminster Photoshoot

    Richard Ozols

    London is a great place for outdoor photoshoots with is popular landmarks and varied scenery. You can find locations that bring classical and modern feel just a short walking distance in between them. London is not that grey as some people make is seem, but with the unpredictable weather an extra light source is a must.

    Here is a quick video from one of our shoots around Big Ben.
