“Once negativity sets it, like a weed it will spread and damage everything you come in contact with. Your family, your job, your hobbies, your friends....they will all be affected by your newfound unhappiness with life. You will get in constant fights with your family, do horrible at work, find your hobbies boring, and your friends won't invite you around anymore. It's not them, it's you and your shit fucking attitude.
“If you expect to gain success because you want money, or the jewelry, or the cars, or the stupid big house, you're in for a rude awakening. All of that shit can burn, break, or be destroyed, and in the end is worthless when you're nothing but ashes. Your "why" needs to have meaning, it needs to be so powerful....so strong.....so fucking resilient that it courses through the passages of space and time.”
“I need to know everyday that life is but a fleeting moment, so as to live a life with passion. Most of “them” don’t, they instead accept their yearly allotted paid vacation to spend time with the family where they’re both at the brink of divorce in a timeshare that neither of them can afford. I instead want a life of purposeful discomfort and a passion filled with heart.”
"The will to engage in suffering daily isn't for the faint of hearted. It's for those that understand failure is part of growth so as to one day see the untapped human potential. Suffer silently and grow exponentially."
"The majority of these individuals have this mindset due to an overinflated and untested ego. They refuse to go to a course or class where they will have to perform under stress and more than likely fail in front of other people. Their ego is too fragile to be judged and picked apart by individuals more knowledgeable than them."
"Learn to constantly be hungry and to always be on the lookout for something better, Don't get lulled into your average job with your average schedule and your average pay. There is always something better out there, you just need to get in the trenches and do the work."
"Once your stand upon that pedastal preaching to others that you are the all seeing, all knowing you are allowing the poison of narcissism enter your heart. You are allowing your unchecked ego take over who you truly are....what you truly represent."
"Can't is the way of the mediocre. Can't is for those who won't be remembered in stories ages from now. Can't is for those who like to point and blame others. Can't is easy. Can't is quick. Can't will draw you in like the Sirens in Odysseus' saga. You must accept the journey will be hard, long and arderous where the only one to blame for your failures is yourself."
"Welcome discomfort with open arms and know in your heart that peace is a gateway drug back to misery."
"You'll only truly find yourself in those deep dark reaches that the common and ordinary can only dream of going."
“How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 8:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?"-C.
