Other people’s opinion

How often do you tell people to go fuck themselves?

If me using the word “fuck” makes you feel uncomfortable, ask yourself why.

Why do you do what you do? Why do you earn the money that you earn? Why are you happy? Or not? Why do you have the addictions that you have and others don’t? Or you don’t and others do.

It’s been years since I’ve wanted for people to define their hopes and dreams and wants and needs on their own terms, to figure out their why, to figure out what makes them feel alive and do that over and over again until they can’t keep their eyes open. And then, the next day, do that again.

I don’t care about the excuses and lies you keep telling yourself about why you don’t have what you want. I really don’t.

I need you to care enough about your dream that you are willing to tell people to fuck off and let you do what you want to do.

Because, guess what? When it’s time for you to die, you’re the one who’s going to be planted in the ground, not them. So you might as well live life on your terms. Continue reading

Do you vacation on Someday Isle?

“Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the future. The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune’s control, and abandoning what lies in yours. What are you looking at? To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately.”Seneca

Somehow I believe that it’s human nature to dream, to imagine a better life. It’s how we evolve and develop. But dreaming is one thing, striving to achieve that dream another.

But it’s difficult, right?

To find the energy, the time, the motivation to pursue your dreams…

Non-believer

Do you want everyone to believe in you even though you don’t believe in yourself? Do you want people to support you even though you haven’t done anything to earn that support?

Do you think the world doesn’t notice you for who you are? Do you think the world cares about the way you talk about your dreams and goals? Do you think everyone else doesn’t see you procrastinating instead of being dedicated to your dreams?

Sure, you can whine and moan about it and get some fake sympathy from fake friends who’ll laugh at you behind your back.

But… Continue reading

Strive to be yourself

Modern day technology allows us to access information faster than ever. More information than ever. Keeps us connected. Keeps us in touch with people half a world away.

But there is a dangerous side effect to such a high level of media consumption.

We forget who we are. Continue reading

On dreams and hope

“Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”
Langston Hughes

Hope. Man’s greatest weakness and greatest strength. The fuel that ignites men’s dreams. Without hope, all that we could be would come crumbling down.

For so many of us, it is hope that wakes us up in the morning. It is this strange idea that things will get better. That life’s unpredictability will, somehow, work for us. Continue reading

Other side of fear

fear

“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.”Jack Canfield

Let me tell you about fear. It’s poison. It’s poison for your mind. It makes you lose control, it makes you freeze, it makes you take the wrong decision. When you let fear take over, you’re just an echo of your former self. An empty shadow and nothing more.

But we’re all afraid, aren’t we? There’s no such thing as fearless. Even the brave are afraid. In fact, one cannot be brave unless one if afraid…

So… what is there to be had on the other side of fear? Continue reading

Talent, hard work, and luck

fearMost people like to believe talent, hard work, and luck are among the determining factors of success. For a long time I thought you only needed any two of them to be successful.

But, actually, if you want to be successful, and it doesn’t matter if all you want is to become a great dancer or actor or writer, or whether you want to pick up pretty girls in bars, you just have to be willing to make a fool out of yourself. Continue reading
