The Advanced Mindset

The advanced mindset is a way of looking at life. You most likely aren’t ever going to be advanced because less than .1% of the population is. However, you can still benefit from an advanced mindset. A great idea from the book is to try liking everything instead of hating everything. Find the good in things instead of always looking for the bad. This not only is a better outlook on life but it makes you more likable. “What advancement does is puts you in touch with that part of yourself that wants to singalong to “I’m Still Standing” because you loved it when you were a kid, before you were aware that Elton John wasn’t cool. The Advanced Genius Theory says that a good song is simply a song that you love, regardless of what everyone else thinks. You can Advance, then, only when you believe in yourself.”

I started to think about this and remembered watching Cool As Ice (8% of Rotten Tomatoes) and thinking that it was the worst movie I’ve ever seen. Now that I think about it a bit further, the one scene where his motorbike jumps the fence with out any ramp whatsoever is pretty ingenious. Later in the movie he does it again when he rides his bike through a wall that the bad guys were shown just earlier being on the second floor. And guess what, NO RAMP! “You can still have good taste. It’s just that the question becomes how much you like a work of art rather than whether you like it.” This actually makes the movie fun and to be perfectly honest, enjoyable. Rather than bashing the poor plot, awful acting, and a complete waste of 91 minutes, you find what makes it good.

I hope that when you read these posts I’m not coming off like I’m now the most advanced blogger in the world because that’s obviously not my intention. I’m just trying to interest you the same way that I was.

Becoming Advanced

I’m reading the Advanced Genius Theory by Jason Hartley and Britt Bergman and felt the need to comment to my non-advanced readers. I’ll also point out that most people never reach advancement but at least being aware of it is a pat on the back. Clicking on that link and buying the book would make you advanced, downloading it on your Kindle Fire would make you super-advanced. You find comments like my above sentence often in this book except with much more thought. I’m hoping that me knowing that I’m making that kind of joke is a little advanced.

A few prerequisites of being an advanced artist is always wearing black sunglasses, having long hair in the back, and sporting leather (again black). These authors use music primarily as the focus but it has started to delve in sports and actors as well. I particularly like it because I like learning about music, if you don’t, you won’t like this book. A few of the most advanced artists are Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, and Elvis. Aside from the look, being advanced is doing things the way you want them to do them with complete disregard for critics opinions. There are 288 pages of this book that describe cases of being advanced so I can’t possibly try to explain (or even understand) everything it takes to become an advanced genius. Essentially, being weird and doing crazy things out of your comfort zone can make you extremely advanced. A good example is Snoop Dogg changing his name to Snoop Lion and making a reggae album. I guarantee those guys would look at that as Snoop trying to become advanced. Now if his work sucks and it’s a complete joke, than he isn’t reaching advancement but it shows he’s trying and is aware of advancing.

There real great thing about advancement is that there really isn’t an exact criteria. Things can become advanced because you say so. Now let the discussion begin.
