1. Don’t expect people to care, you have to make people care.
I hate folks that come up to you and act as if they are entitled to something. As if their presence alone is worth something. As if I should just drop what I’m doing and give them my full undivided attention.
It doesn’t work like that.
No one gives a shit about you or what you are trying to do.
That’s the reality that you have to accept.
I don’t care about what the next person is doing and you don’t either.
Life is too short to worry about the next man.
Therefore, you have to make people care.
You can create the greatest product in the world, but if no one cares, it doesn’t mean squat.
So stop acting as if you are entitled to something.
The world doesn’t owe you a dime, you owe the world something.
You owe the world value.
So get off your ass and provide value, real value.
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned in business is you need to put the needs of others first. By doing so, you will win by default.
So focus on creating dopeness. When you do, people will care and people will pay the big bucks.
2. The system is broken
The system is broken, whether that be the educational system or the corporate system.
The system is set up against you.
The system is designed to make you average.
I don’t know about you, but I didn’t learn any real world skills in school.
I don’t know about you, but sacrificing your prime years to climb the corporate ladder just doesn’t seem exciting and worthwhile.
Work your ass off for 40 plus years just to make your boss rich is some horseshit.
Go to COLLEGE, bust your ass, get good grades, get a good job, work hard for your boss, save, retire, die is some horseshit.
Working a job that you hate for the money is some horseshit.
Putting your trust and your income in the hands of your employer is some horseshit.
Sacrificing your freedom for the illusion of security is some horseshit.
Letting others choose your dream is some horseshit.
A mediocre life is some horseshit.
I’m sick and tired of seeing people with great potential sacrifice an extraordinary future for mediocrity because they are too pussy to chase their calling, because they are too pussy to go against their parents’ wishes, because they are too pussy to try.
Stop being a fucking pussy.
Your parent’s did not raise a pussy.
What’s the worst that can happen, you fail?
Pick yourself up and try again.
I don’t know about you, but mediocrity just doesn’t do it for me.
It drives me crazy.
It’s just so damn boring.
I’d rather die than be mediocre.
Don’t you see that the current system in place is designed to keep you within the lines?
It’s designed to control you.
The path is before you and society has conditioned you to abide by it.
No one ever achieves massive success by following the common path.
Therefore, you are set up to fail before you even begin.
As a result, if you want to make it, you have to design your own system; you have to create your own path.
You have to look after yourself.
Not only do you have to look after yourself, you have to provide for yourself.
Stop depending on someone else.
Just working to get by is not something I’m interested in and you shouldn’t be either.
Dream bigger, my friend, dream bigger.
3. Be fucking crazy
Stop giving a fuck about what others say.
Do your shit.
Live your life.
Live with passion.
Be the color in a black and white world.
Share your ideas.
Follow your crazy ideas.
Take pride in who you are.
Stop putting yourself down.
Dare to dream. Dare to try. Dare to achieve.
Dare to be the strongest version of yourself.
I say all of that to say this…
Break the norm. Stop going along with society. People are scared these days. People are so scared to try something; people are so scared to speak the truth. People say they want the truth, but when you speak it, they call you an asshole.
But fuck em.
Stand for something.
Stop acting like a sheep, start acting like a lion.
The people around you are all sheep.
The people that you see around you are barely living.
In fact they’re not living at all, instead they just exist.
Being alive does not mean that you are alive.
A heartbeat does not symbolize life.
Passion symbolizes life. Breaking through fear symbolizes life. Having the balls to be who you are destined to be symbolizes life. Going against the norm and succeeding symbolizes life.
So come alive.
Take back your world.
Create your world.
You control reality.
4. Be nice to yourself
Why do you doubt yourself?
Why do you stress over things that won’t even matter a week from now?
Why do you put yourself down?
Stop talking to yourself in a negative tone.
You’re better than that.
Society has conditioned you to believe that you are shit, but that’s not true, because you’re not shit, if anything, you are the shit.
You just have to break your current paradigm and see yourself for what you are, a child who is capable of doing great things, a warrior who is capable of climbing huge mountains.
So start seeing the beauty that you possess.
Start seeing the shine that you are capable of generating.
Start believing in yourself.
Love yourself like Kanye West loves himself.
Well that’s all I have to say for today.
Peace and love.
