Accept who you are, except you’re a serial killer. Stop beating yourself up. You are a work in progress, which means you get there little at a time, not all at once. Or you can accelerate the process and get there in a body bag. The choice really is yours to make. If you find yourself constantly trying to prove your worth to someone, you have already forgotten your value. It’s zero by the way.
Opportunity is always knocking, the problem is that you’re deaf. Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there. If you are persistent, you will get it. If you are consistent, you will keep it. Whatever it is. As long as people will accept crap, it will be financially profitable to dispense it. I mean, here you are reading this blog like you don’t have better things to do (you don’t). If you can’t do great things, do small things in a great way. Even I winced after writing that.
Laugh often. It is bad to suppress laughter. It goes back down and spreads to your hips. And talk to yourself. Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need an expert opinion. Always remember to ask questions. It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question. My therapist told me that the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far, I’ve finished two bags of M&M’s, a one liter bottle of coke and a chocolate cake. I feel better already.
You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club. Consider the postage stamp. Its usefulness consists of the ability to stick to one thing till it gets there. For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as a forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously towards a better self. The journey does not end. Also, do your best to let go of hate. Hating people is like burning down your house to get rid of a rat.
Whatever you do, always give 100%, unless you’re donating blood. Don’t settle. The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for. One time I was looking for my wallet. Weeks flew by and I didn’t find it, but I found my friends wallet and we split the money 50:50. I got lucky because I never gave up on the search. Are you quitting too soon? Or are you willing to pursue luck with vengeance? My dear, if you want to give up, give up!
The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking spaces. There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self. The same light you see in others is shining in you too. But know this, that if you sin, you must pay for your sins. If you have already paid, ignore this notice. If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. A shit show.
If you miss an opportunity, don’t fill your eyes with tears, it will hide another better opportunity from you. And while you’re at it, get some friends. Friendship is like peeing on yourself. Everyone can see it, but only you gets the warm fuzzy feeling that it brings. Friendship is everything, but sometimes adversity is necessary. If people are doubting how far you can go, go so far that you can’t hear them anymore. When someone says you can’t do it. Do it twice
