In anyway you are hard on yourself for not being where you think you should be in life, take today, if not just today, to be stoked on who you are and where you are.
Because our world isn’t built to make you feel good about yourself. Awesome is an inside job.
As Morrie Schwartz, subject of Tuesdays with Morrie, said, “The culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it.”
The following 3 questions should help determine if you are awesome and able to rise above “the culture.”
1. Someone doesn’t like you. What do you do?
a. Ask them why and try to change yourself
b. Go home defeated, cry, and go on an Adderall-induced smoking binge
c. Tell ’em to stick it where the sun don’t shine and walk away
2. You feel badly about yourself when you are with a certain energy-sucking companion. What do you do?
a. Ask them to go into business with you
b. Imitate their style
c. Realize that we are the average of the 5 people we hang out with most and have the wherewithal to limit your time with NRG Vampires
3. You see something on TV that you really want and can’t afford
a. Work harder so you can afford it and go buy it ASAP
b. Steal from your friend’s wallet. She’s rich and would never ever know.
c. Stop watching TV shows about rich, obnoxious people with nothing better to do than puke BS all over each other
If you answered “C” on all three questions, you are AWESOME!
