Description

Introducing the book Mad Genius

Mad Genius” by Randy Gage (1959), American writer and entrepreneur. In part of the book Mad Genius we read: We entrepreneurs are created to change the situation, to live by our own rules and, most importantly, to create new things. Our most important genius is related to the part of creation. That’s why Steve Jobs’s product fits the market with great foresight. We pay more attention to business issues than to the championship, and we are often more confused when it comes to the Kickstarter 1 championship. We see genius in action.

I thought of all this while watching “Before Nightfall”, a magnificent film based on the excellent book by Ronald Adenas, a genius who displayed the gifts of another. When you come across such books or movies, you have nothing to do but create something amazing. Something that makes a difference. You will see that the book is divided into three parts: The first part looks at how we got to our current situation! How the convergence of negative critical beliefs and analogies and thinking poisoned our minds and allowed us to be moderate.
The second section explores some of the major breakthroughs we will see in the next decade. We choose a specific place, anticipate the future, and identify its challenges so that the greatest opportunities are revealed to us. The third section presents a set of thought-provoking ideas that make you think. Read each section at the moment you need it. But know that there is one thing in common in all three areas: the fact that how do we think to succeed as an entrepreneur?

What do you know about the genius who severely tortures its owner? From a crazy genius named Hunter S. Thompson was asked how he does clever and outstanding work. Although his response was a little disappointing, he said: “I am against drugs, alcohol, violence or mistreatment of others. “I was addicted to them, but leaving them blossomed my genius.” I wish I could say that the strange and interesting point of this book was the sudden inspiration of genius, but in fact this book was set in an environment full of utter despair and shame.

Embarrassed as I lay in the corner of my apartment trying to get rid of the effects of having fun with drugs like glass, an addiction I thought I had long since given up. Disappointment because fatigue, insomnia, and depression were gradually replaced by happiness.
Glass addicts, for reasons you may know, call these days suicide days. Now, if you think that in such an environment, the opportunity to cultivate a creative genius is limited, you are somewhat right. Because sometimes when we are at our worst and face the most difficult challenges, we come to our senses and mobilize our forces and come to the conclusion that hope is the solution to despair. This is often repeated in this book.

If you do not give up, the answer “no” will never make sense, and failure is not the end. Challenges provide the greatest opportunities for innovation and creation. I was always tempted to go back to square one, but I realized I had to overcome feelings of insecurity and humiliation. The good news is, I was sure it would not happen again. Sometimes you know better when your work is done.

I felt that after drinking my last sip of alcohol at my twentieth birthday party, I would stop drinking. I felt that way, and 35 years later I never wanted to drink it again. From the moment I felt my life was better without alcohol, I realized that recreational drug use not only makes my life better, it also destroys it. So I chose life between drugs and life. But I was still in terrible pain, wondering if I could still write a book or if the goddess of creativity would leave me alone in the sanctuary. Do I still have the gift of identifying opportunities and creating entrepreneurial initiatives? As a child, I saw geniuses like Joplin, Hendrix, and Morrison shine at the height of their fame and then die from drug abuse.
Authors such as Hemingway, Poe, Crowack, O. I worshiped Henry and Thompson, who saw drugs and alcohol as essential elements of their creative genius, or at least as the solution to problems that prevented them from achieving creative genius. Fortunately, as I read the book about writing, The Brilliant Story of Stephen King, Who Quit Addiction, I began to think that by harnessing, nurturing, and guiding genius, I could create a great book, and even better, that I could discover how the entrepreneurial genius mentality works. .

As I explored the connection between creativity and mental illness, I came across the phrase, “Crazy people see the world in a new and pristine way that others cannot see.” Of course, entrepreneurs are not mentally ill, they just have the talent to see the world in a new and pristine way that others cannot see. Wait a minute… We entrepreneurs have been created to change the situation, to live by our own rules and, most importantly, to create new things. Our most important genius is related to the part of creation.

Introducing the book Mad Genius
A great move for those who want to realize their entrepreneurial dream.
What do you know about the genius who severely tortures its owner?
From a crazy genius named Hunter S. Thompson was asked how he does clever and outstanding work. Although his response was a little disappointing, he said: “I am against drugs, alcohol, violence or mistreatment of others. “I was addicted to them, but leaving them blossomed my genius.”

I wish I could say that the strange and interesting point of this book was the sudden inspiration of genius, but in fact this book was set in an environment full of utter despair and shame.
This book has reached you from one of the lowest stages of my life. I hope it takes both of us to the next level and that you curb your insane genius and share it with the world.
You will see that the book is divided into three parts: The first part looks at how we got to our current situation! How the convergence of negative critical beliefs and analogies and thinking poisoned our minds and allowed us to be moderate.
The second section explores some of the major breakthroughs we will see in the next decade. We choose a specific place, anticipate the future, and identify its challenges so that the greatest opportunities are revealed to us.

About the author Mad Genius
Becoming a crazy entrepreneur and genius is a dream come true for many people. The good feeling that instead of getting paid by others, we become the boss of our own business and give salaries to others encourages many of us to become entrepreneurs. So far, so good.
But when it comes to succeeding in entrepreneurship, things get simpler and more complicated. However, many entrepreneurs have proven in practice that they can succeed in the business world.

In this part of Pulse News, we go to the book “Mad Genius” by Randy Gage and read the advice of an unusual entrepreneur. Stay with us.
Topics of this article
In search of finding the main problem
Everyone uses different methods when looking for their own success. Sometimes those methods lead to success and sometimes they bring nothing but failure. The searcher of our story does not back down and still seeks to try different ways to achieve his goal. But he still does not have much success. It is as if his efforts are like running on a treadmill; It does not matter how many kilometers you run because there is never a destination to reach.

When we look at this story a few steps back, we notice a very narrow but very deep gap. This narrow gap causes the searcher to stagnate instead of moving forward, losing energy, money, and motivation, and ultimately leaving a handful of unpleasant memories of his efforts. The reason for this strange gap is “not having a great idea.”
This crazy genius constantly chooses and uses methods to achieve his goal, but he really does not have a great idea to do. Remember that it is not the method that attracts the goal, but the goal that with its power shows you the methods of seeing the sun in the sky clearly.

Do not believe the big lie
Many people are stuck in a big misunderstanding. They think that their opponent on the battlefield is a giant called “defeat”. If they fail, they are their comrades. What prevents them from succeeding is being satisfied with ordinary situations, being moderate in doing things, and giving up. Failures do not stop you from succeeding. They are part of your success process.

If you do not succeed in the small steps you take to reach your goal, you will never improve your path to a pit full of fire. Each time you fall, you get the message that you need to improve your approach and think about yourself.

There is no grace in retirement, do not wait for it
For many who are now young and are spending their days striving for success and wealth, the concept of “retirement” may seem like a dream come true at a young age. But it is nice to hear Dohl singing from afar. Even if you imagine that at the age of 35 you have a fortune that frees you from working for the rest of your life, you still can not give up in your real life. Because gaining wealth is only a small part of the story of work and effort.

Keeping working, feeling useful, alive and getting better day by day keeps you alive in your heart. This is the reason why the world’s richest people get out of bed every day and put them behind their desks. It may be interesting to know that many people who retire after years of working for a company become depressed after only a few months and die much sooner than their peers who do not accept something called retirement.
Working gives a person motivation to try and hope to move. Instead of dreaming of retiring at a young age, it might be a good idea to pursue your favorite job or even take a few months off, like a crazy genius. I promise you, much sooner than that, you’re looking for something to do. Because man is inherently a purposeful being. Having a goal and striving to achieve it is what inspires our lives.

Mad Genius

Are Entrepreneurs Crazy? Perhaps!
When we think of the firsts in every industry, we see with our own eyes one or two crazy people doing something out of the ordinary. For example, in that strange workshop, Edison constantly weaves different wires, another combines different materials, and another thinks that he can build different houses for humans on Mars! But the truth is that our world today would never have achieved so much progress and civilization without these lunatics.

No one, except a mad genius, swims against the current or seeks anything beyond group thinking. Because the first result of doing so is being ridiculed, humiliated, and even threatened.
But a madman does it. Because more than the thoughts and thoughts of others, seeing something that does not yet exist for others fills him with joy and power. He believes in a new possibility, a fateful change, and a completely different situation, and that makes him a historian. Yes. In my opinion, entrepreneurs are the craziest creatures among the great multitude of wise and ordinary human beings who change the destiny of the earth.

Are you ready to pay the entrepreneurial price?
Usually when it comes to doing great things, making amazing changes and scoring unusual things, some people jump in and talk about the price we have to pay to do it. What they call the price of a success is the lack of a plan, the fear of failure, and the lack of feedback.

For example, some – even some successful entrepreneurs – claim that the price of success in entrepreneurship and getting rich is the loss of family, happiness and peace. They inspire a kind of sacrifice that turns entrepreneurship into a curse. But this is not the case at all. In fact, there is no truth at all. The whole story goes back to the way we look at the world around us.
One who sees failure as a curse will never have the opportunity to use its feedback. A person who, instead of learning to manage energy and time, dedicates himself to his work and does not care about his family, considers moving away from his wife and children as a price for entrepreneurship, thereby shifting the responsibility of compassion and kindness to his family to something else.
As a crazy genius you have to be aware that you were born to meet success. Success is like an old friend standing under a street lamp waiting for you.

You will not be cursed for meeting this old friend, you will not be deprived of money, and your neighbor will not be miserable. Before going out and meeting this friend, it might be a good idea to look at the stove and turn it off, say kind words to your family, and close the door behind you.
Nevertheless, yes! Success and victory have a price. But the price is nothing but getting out of your safe zone. Anything other than that is just an excuse to cover up the shortcomings and not take responsibility for the mistakes you have made in the entrepreneurial path.

A trap set in the path of a Mad Genius
We said a while ago that entrepreneurs are people who make a difference in society. But many of them stop moving after taking a few steps in their path, like prey trapped in spider webs, and even become completely flat on the ground.

What causes this is to fall into the trap of old and inefficient patterns. These patterns are the reason why many companies are holding back from progress, forcing them to do useless things and landing on efficiency like a hammer.
You may ask, “Why is the entrepreneur not already aware of this?” The answer is that entrepreneurial thinking gets involved without even realizing it, and shifts to normalization.
The story is that entrepreneurs tend to go to the beach a little to get tired to reduce the pressure that changes and swimming in the opposite direction of the river puts on their souls. But it also makes the beach and the beach dwellers deceive them to stop being different.
They become captive to collective thinking. When an entrepreneur gets involved in such a problem, he takes off his entrepreneurial cloak and the employee brigade.
. The result is an entrepreneur who delivers things to the community with the normal, adaptive thinking of an employee.

This story does not last long. Because one can not love the beach at the same time and fight to challenge the waves of the river.
To get out of this predicament, entrepreneurs need to keep a close eye on themselves and be careful not to lose their critical and unusual way of thinking. They should not allow themselves and their thoughts to become infected with the virus of ordinary beliefs, practices and practices.

Genius is not a gift, it is a process
All human beings are geniuses; But not in the same way. The genius within each person is very different from the other. Sometimes inside a person lives an artist genius whose genius in painting is unparalleled.
Another genius is a stock market trader. Even in the worst of circumstances, he can find a way to make a profit. Likewise, the geniuses of management, writing, sales, cooking, music, pure science, and… live somewhere deep within all human beings.

The point to understand is that becoming a genius means stepping into a process that you have to commit to doing exactly. You have to ask yourself, do you really want to do something real in the path of your innate genius? Or do you want to continue the way you have lived so far and be in the service of a crazy genius within others?
You should not seek to change the world with your genius. Many in-house geniuses do not. But they can change you and the world around you. Wait a minute… Isn’t that enough to change the world?

You are part of this world, which in turn affects you.

Remember, the path to meeting the genius within you is full of inner joy. Because you act on what you are made for, and that gives your soul a chance to breathe.

If you feel that doing what the genius in you wants is bothering you, I suggest you think again about yourself and the person you call the genius within you. Because most likely, you have confused the genius inside another person with your own genius!
Problem and solution live together
As an entrepreneur, 99% of your mission is to solve big and small problems. In fact, you and your team are the problem solver. The problem is that entrepreneurs usually look for solutions somewhere on the moon, or at best, miles away from the problem. While the problem and the key to solving it live in one place.
An entrepreneur has to look at the problem like puzzle pieces in a box. Puzzle is a problem that is also a solution. If you can find such a perspective on problems as a crazy genius, you will save time, money and labor.

Go left and right and move forward with all your might
You may have heard stories and even research results that talk about the function of the right or left side of the brain. This information insists on institutionalizing beliefs such as the stronger part of the mind in some people.

If you want to free your inner genius, you have to get rid of all these beliefs. Your mind allows you to survive and have creative experiences throughout the day with all your might and as it moves information from one hemisphere to the other.
Interestingly, other researchers have studied the mental function of geniuses such as Einstein, Mozart, etc., and have concluded that the unique creativity of their minds is due to the increased connection between the two hemispheres of their minds.
In other words, do not let limiting beliefs interfere with the actual functioning of your mind.

Do you want to be more creative?
There are three ordinary things that ordinary people do not do and therefore do not see the color of creativity and genius in their lives. These three common tasks are “experimenting”, “internalizing experiences” and “acting”.

You may ask, “We are all doing this. “We gain experience by living and we are doing our job every day.” This is exactly why creativity moves away from ordinary people. Because they live in the illusion of doing these things.

Most people shy away from engaging in new situations, learning new things, and challenging themselves. For this reason, they do not have the opportunity to gain new experiences. While experience is the main feed of a creative mind.
The internalization of experiences is another thing that separates one creative mind from another. This means the mental experience of adventures that have not yet occurred.
In the last step, you have to put all these experiences and internalizations into a practical and real work. For example, start your own business, participate, look for an investor for your ideas, send your book to several publications and even prepare for the Olympics. In any case, it is the effort that produces the real results and gives the inner genius a chance to show himself to the world. Do you give him this opportunity?
