Make it Remarkable – My first book is here

change your life

The Make It Remarkable Journal is finally here. Honestly, I can’t personally believe it.

“Choose a life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television. Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers… Choose DIY and wondering who the f**k you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit crushing game shows, stucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away in the end of it all, pishing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourself, choose your future. Choose life… But why would I want to do a thing like that?”
― Irvine Welsh, Trainspotting

I’m sure you’ve seen the movie or read the book and if you haven’t you should.

Why?

Because life isn’t only what you think you should be doing.
Life is also what you want to do.

Society pushes us to think that we have to:

Go to school, go to uni, get a job, make money, get married, buy a house, or two, retire.

Die. 

But…

what’s the point of it if you don’t at least try

to make it REMARKABLE?


HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF HOW WOULD YOUR LIFE BE IF YOU COULD DISCOVER YOUR PASSION AND FINALLY BE HAPPY? For many kids it seems like an impossible thing to do. An unattainable dream. Unfortunately, society makes us believe that there is only one way to go: Study, Go to university, Find a safe job, Save, Retire, Die. What if I told you there was an alternative way of living? A little bit more pleasant? A little more fun? Maybe you still don’t know well what to do with your life (continue your studies, work, go abroad) and nobody is really able to give you concrete help. Maybe you already have a job but, just the idea of ​​doing the same thing for the next 40 years, makes you want to die. Maybe inside you, there is a burning desire to be free, TO TRAVEL, to explore the world and to finally be in control of your own life. If you find yourself in one of the above situations, Welcome! You are in the right place.

The MAKE IT REMARKABLE JOURNAL is exactly what you need to really find out what you should be doing with your life. But….

STOP

There are hundreds gurus and “coaches” out there promoting to help you and make you rich in the blink of an eye. If you are looking fot that type of help, close this page and goodbye.

I will tell you how you should invest your time and money. And I will tell you that you need to work harder than you have ever worked in your life.

I wrote this guide for those who have the desire to discover and learn the strategies necessary to live a remarkable life, in a real, ethical and permanent way.

What I want to do with you in this guide is to share scientifically proven methods to discover your values and passions and around those to build your path to happiness.

WHAT’S IN THE BOOK?

 

As you can see the book is divided into three main parts:


PART I – WHO ARE YOU?

In three sections and several exercises, we will discover your inner self and who you really are.

 

PART II – DREAM OUT LOUD

By understanding who you are, you are finally able to dive deep into your dreams. The ones you constantly think about and the ones you never knew you had.

 

PART III – MAKE IT REMARKABLE

After finding out about your skills, values and hopes, we will put down a list of your dreams and an action plan to make put them into practice.

IS THIS BOOK FOR YOU? 

  • You don’t know what you want to do in life and you are lost in a sea of ideas, doubts and options. Or the complete lack of them

  • You already have a job, but it takes up all your energy and you are left with nothing to give to your family, friends, beloved ones or side projects

  • You want to travel the world but don’t have the money / time / courage or whatever else it takes.

 

If you’ve answered yes to any of the above questions, then this is the book for you.

With the right information and the right attitude, you can actually tailor your life instead of coping with something you are not totally into.

This book won’t encourage you to leave your safe job and hit a deserted island, it’s not even a guide to becoming a digital nomad. There are so many other options to actually have a remarkable life and I’ve shared them with you on my book.

This guide is your manual to create a life that is perfect for you rather than finding a job that pays the bills.

I am not a guru nor I want to become one. This book is the result of hundreds of books I’ve read on the topic, workshops, courses and thousands of conversations I had with friends and people I’ve met around the world. But it’s also the result of my 8-year career in management consulting and two years as a Senior Project Manager at Amazon. I’ve worked with people and talents throughout my career and this is the result.

James Ferrux – from Joke Writer to Professional Poker Player

remarkable

After the successful first 10 interviews of the series of “They made it remarkable” in Italian and because of a growing demand to translate them to English, I’ve decided to switch to this language from now on and move the future interviews here.

Welcome.

JOB: Poker player and writer
LIFESTYLE: Digital nomad
SOCIAL MEDIA: Facebook
AGE: 32
NATIONALITY: French

 

Where are you from?

I was born in France, raised in the Antilles, Cuba, Canada, Asia, and currently still growing in Morocco

Education?

I managed to stand it only until the end of high school. I started working when I was 18.

What did you do in your previous life?

I had many jobs but the last one was joke writer, comedian assistant and baby-sitter.

What do you do today?

I play poker, travel, still write for pleasure and baby-sit myself.

Why did you decide to take the jump?

I had reached a certain goal, an apartment in Paris, a fancy job for a famous TV network, I could buy all the sneakers I wanted each month, had finally that great DVD shelf I had always dreamt of, but I felt like Barbossa in Pirates of the Caribbean, I didn’t have taste for life anymore, an empty vessel… So I let myself hit rock bottom, I was like in a balloon that cannot stretch anymore, I felt I needed to get out, get some fresh air. When I realized I could get out I punctured my way out, I did it the quick and noisy way!

Did you need to study something new or go back to uni to change your life?

I felt I needed to change my perspective, to take some distance, flip the microscope the other way around. Let everything go, went to Asia for a while to figure out what I would miss, what would survive in me. I understood it was all shitty because of me so I needed to work on myself. I changed my energy, I was not resisting anymore so finally I was able to see and accept the opportunities to try something different. It all started with a “group therapy” kind of thing, where I learned to reposition my ego and then I went on reading, learning meditation, travelling, putting myself first and all that cool stuff…

make remarkable

Since you’ve changed direction, have you ever thought you made a mistake?

Yeah of course, mistakes are like drafts, experiences, tests, try-outs, warm-ups, it’s just a way to learn and improve… It’s what makes great bloopers in movies so they are indispensable. Trying not to beat myself too hard for each one I make is what changed. I repeat to myself the cheesy Zen line

“it’s okay not to be okay”

What were the hardest challenges and tough moments before and after the change?

The toughest if I can call it that is what is still going on today and what has always been, it’s feeling “forced” to explain and justify the way I live, the way I think to friends and relatives and all those who think they know me better than I do. “Why the heck did you leave the herd ??” I seem to read in their eyes. So it’s always the same 20 minutes small talk to finally hear them saying:

“oh you’re probably right, maybe I too should take control of my life and do what I want before I turn into compost…”

And then they go back to their predigested life and talk behind my back like I went completely rogue.

But who cares? I’m happy.

make remarkable

And the biggest satisfactions and achievements?

Becoming a profitable poker player like I planned 10 months ago, being able to leave France for good, living anywhere I want and pretty much doing whatever I want without owing shit to anybody. I am free.

Do you think your new lifestyle is sustainable in the long run?

I completely stopped projecting myself in hypothetical futures, I am right here, right now. Whether it’s poker or something else I’ve managed to make a living so far. You know the saying,

“The bird doesn’t fear the branch he’s lying on breaks, he trusts his wings”.

There’s always a way to make it.

Considering your new life: what is more important education or experience?

To me, education sounds with “educastration”. I wouldn’t trade my years travelling in different cultures, my adventures, my disappointments, my discoveries through experience for any certificate in the world. “Diploma is the deadly enemy of culture” said some famous French guy (Paul Valery).

How important was knowing other languages for your change?

Lucky for me I’ve always loved English and I learned Spanish in Cuba so that covers pretty much a lot. I understand it can be an issue if you can’t communicate, but don’t worry you’ll find a way.

remarkable

How has your life changed since you jumped off of that plane?

Actually, I’ve never taken so many planes since I left the old me. I love to play with my senses and change decor. Everything that happens now is the direct result of my actions, no one else to blame or to thank, that’s what changed.

What would you recommend to people who are hoping to pursue a similar career to yours?

Nothing, just listen to your heart, your guts or whichever organ you like to converse with and go for it.

“Listen to your heart, there’s nothing else you can do. I don’t know where you’re going and I don’t know why, but listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye” – Roxette

Have you read any books, listened to podcasts or watched movies/vlogs that have inspired you to exit the loop?

Yes, a few classics, Eat Pray Love, The Power of Now, The Four Agreements, Liberez votre cerveau by Idriss Aberkane, to learn thinking outside the box, and probably a list of 30 more mystic books that some fellow travellers keep adding titles to…
