Golden Eye for the Adonis Guy
As an ambassador of the Adonis Lifestyle, I strive to take the utmost care when writing blog posts. My goal is that the content I bring to you will be encouraging, informational, and last but not least entertaining.
In keeping with that tradition I present to you: Golden Eye for the Adonis Guy–an ongoing series featuring several topics not limited to but including my experiences, observations and “lessons learned” from fitness competitions and my association with the modeling industry. This Golden insight that I will share with you comes from the results of applying the Adonis Effect and the pursuit of obtaining my ideal AI ratio.
However, I will forewarn you that my perspective is biased. Rightfully so, as I’ve been on both sides of the “fitness” fence. However, let me assure you the grass is greener on the “Adonis Lifestyle” side.
It’s often said, “there’s more than one way to skin a cat.” While skinning cats is of no interest to me, I understand or perceive the meaning; which brings us to today’s discussion of perception.
Is Perception Reality?
The famous quote, “perception is reality” by Lee Atwater compels us to ask a few questions. First of all, what is perception? Perception is defined as the awareness of the elements in an environment through physical sensation. The sensation being our five senses: sight, sound, taste, touch, & smell.
Secondly, what is reality? Reality is defined as a real event, entity, or state of affairs. After gaining understanding of these two definitions we can begin to draw a few conclusions. What we perceive often times leads us to pass judgment on ourselves or others.
In the context of body types, someone could be labeled: short, tall, skinny, fat, or muscular. While nothing is particularly wrong with any of these, it still does not negate the fact that all of these body types will make an impression on others. Sad yet true, a person’s body type is subject to discrimination. For example, a model is held to a higher standard, as they are valued for their aesthetic appearance or the illusion there of. Rather fitness or fashion, the model’s goal or objective is present themselves’ in the most compelling way to market & promote their client’s product or service. While this may seem like a very crude definition of a model, keep in mind millions of dollars are spent in marketing. Therefore, only the best models will be chosen to represent a company; which makes the modeling industry all the more competitive.
I’m sure by now you’re wondering how and why these concepts apply to you?
To answer your question, these concepts apply to you because a model has a very significant influence on your perception of the world and the expectations you have of it. From your favorite cologne to your choice of body wash, we have been conditioned to expect certain features and attributes from the model who represents their respective product or service. I make this point only to emphasize that in the Information Age, we are constantly bombarded with several forms of media all lobbying to influence our perception. To bring this into perspective consider the quote, “image is everything.” While this is true in some instances, what is certain is that your image will leave an impression upon others. With that being said, how you are perceived by others is indeed a reality in their mind.
Augment Your Reality (AI=AR)
Now that we’ve come to realize the importance of perception and that at no fault of our own, we are often times judged by our appearance, we have a decision to make. Before revealing what that decision is, a certain phrase or saying comes to mind. The saying, “Don’t hate the player, hate the game” means don’t fault the successful participant in a flawed system try instead to learn that aspect which displeases you. In this scenario, you are the player and the game is the society you live in. With that being said, if you change the player, you will change the game. In other words, by augmenting yourself you can change the way society responds to you; which in turn places the odds in your favor.
There is a specific area of research called Anthropology that involves the in-depth examination of how people interact with one another. This research has shown us that all human beings have the ability to pick out a beautiful and attractive person. Physical attractiveness has a significant effect on people’s perception of you. Changing your body into the ideal human form (AI Golden Ratio), has a direct influence on your ability to impress others; therefore, augmenting your reality (AR). It is a physical law of attraction that is simply undeniable.
In conclusion, under the new series: Golden Eye for the Adonis Guy I’ve shared from my perspective, if perception is indeed reality and how to augment your reality by changing yourself. It’s fascinating to know that the shape of your body can and will affect your sex life, success in business, friendships and all other forms of social opportunity.
