Here’s an Opportunity – TAKE IT

In: Hate Your Job?

I've got a theory.

Don't tell anyone, because if they take it to heart, they might get even better at this business thing, and then what's going to happen is that one year from now, you'll somehow find yourself eating red velvet cupcakes at their book signing instead of your own, except you won't just be eating one cupcake, you'll be eating several, because that's what people do when they're feeling subpar, right? THEY BINGE EAT. I hear that a lot of people binge eat on cupcakes, which is why I just used it as an example, but me? I'm more of a mozzarella stick kind of girl. Got any of those? Because if not, I don't want anything to do with your book signing. Come to think of it, I'll just get my own.

Book signing, that is–not mozzarella stick. Though, the two would be lovely together. Hold me to that, will you?

Deep fried cheese aside, the most profound theory you're going to read in the next thirty seconds of your life is this:

People? They're LAZY.

That it's.

That's my profound theory.

Which isn't really a theory, since it's more a blanket statement, but a blanket statement can be a theory, can't it?

People are lazy. 

Every one runs around complaining they actually have to learn something these days.

People complain about having to learn, complain about having to try, complain about having to try again, complain about having to earn, complain about having to suffer, complain about having to work at it, and complain that it doesn't just come easily.

Which is funny, since this is not some sort of great disadvantage, because nothing comes easily to anyone, okay? That Michael Phelps character trained every single day for FIVE YEARS without taking a break. What have you or I done every single day for five years? (Vodka doesn't count.)

That's how highly-paid experts are made.

They get unlazy.

And they make progress.

And then one day, they know more than you.

That's how this learning thing works.

So guess what?

Now that you know that the rest of the world is lazy, there's one very important implication:

You barely have to do anything to get ahead. 

Did your laundry? Two points! Read a book? You're in the lead!

When the rest of the world is lazy, it means that you've got an opportunity to not be lazy.

You've got an opportunity to do something.

To stand out.

To make it happen.

And get your walrus on. (What, you didn't envision your business like a walrus? Well you should. It weighs 4,000 pounds. Now that's a heavy hitter.)

NOTHING IS UNTOUCHABLE.

(Except maybe those cupcakes. That shit is bad for you.)

We Need You to Give Yourself the Job

Today I will drive twenty six miles on backroads, through crisp autumn air, past dairy farms and old Citgo stations, and up a giant hill to my alma mater, Blue Ridge High School, here in rural Pennsylvania. I’m speaking to a group of seniors. Hijacking their last class of the day as I hoist myself […]

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait for No One

Here’s a principle I vehemently disagree with: Good things come to those who wait. You know who probably came up with that stylish piece of wisdom? Someone in a position of power, tasked with managing the masses and getting them to obey orders. You can hear a teacher saying that, can’t you? Now, there, little […]

“I Want to Do Something Else…But What?” Welcome To The Fucking Question That Everyone Is Asking Themselves.

I have a dirty little hypothesis. It’s about the discontent. The unrest. This global epidemic that’s happening behind closed doors of women wanting something else. It’s why the LuLaRoe, the Advocare, the Younique. It’s why books like Eat, Pray, Love became bestsellers. It’s why we’re spending so much time on the Internet, too, and drinking […]

How to Start an Online Business When You Are Not an “Internet Person”—And Are Seriously Doubting That You Can Do This

So, the other day one of my best college girlfriends reached out and was all, “Ashhhhhhhhhh! I need your helpppppp! I’m trying to start an online business but I have no idea what I’m doing and you’re obviously the first person that I thought of, muahahaha.” (She. Is. Adorable. She’s been hand-painting wooden signs and […]

You Find Peace With Your Work Through Tension

It’s never as scary as it seems. Everything you’re worried about happening? Won’t. It might seem intimidating, the world—putting yourself out there, taking the chance, trying something new, going all in, showing up, asking for help, connecting with strangers, and, ultimately, gambling your ego and everything you know to be true. There will be a […]
