You Don’t Need a Job – You Need Guts

In: Feeling Dead and Uninspired

Truth:

Most people will walk this earth for decades, feeling guilty for not pursuing the great adventures inside of them, but will never do anything about it.

Truth:

Most people are overwhelmed by fear, and will make some of the worst choices of their lives because of it.

Truth:

Most people will put their head down, follow the leader, do exactly as they are told, and will believe that by doing so, they'll get farther in life. While this may have once been the case, in a time when assembly lines were hip, the exact opposite is true now. In the digital age we're living in now, success awaits those who are willing to ask hard questions, take a stand, and be daringly, unflinchingly, trusting of themselves.

Truth:

Most people believe that there is safety & security in a steady 9-5 job. More and more, however, it's becoming glaringly obvious that relying on an external source of livelihood is a big (and irrational) risk. Why wait for someone to give you a job when you can create your own? Entrepreneurship is more accessible than ever, thanks to the Internet, and self-reliance is always, always a good thing.

Truth:

Most people leave the quality of their lives up to luck & happenstance, and believe, somewhere deep down, that eventually they'll be noticed, promoted, given a chance. As much as I love a pristine white horse as much as the next guy, it's crucial to remember that you're always in control—and Google always knows how to get from A to B.

Truth:

Most people want more from life—more fulfillment, more excitement, more pleasure, more peace, more self-assurance, more satisfaction, more happiness, and way more juicy stories to tell—but they'll never get it because they let the lack of immediate know-how become a lifelong obstacle.

Truth:

Most people will never actually do anything they care about—they'll just think they did.

Blow Off Work Today. That’s An Order.

I’ve been thinking about joy lately. I don’t particularly care for the word; every word has its own personality, and the word joy seems to conjure up an image of an old lady with dentures and pearls. The word just feels outdated. Mothballesque, if you will. Nevertheless, the concept remains. It’s stuck in my mind ever […]

How to Be a Human.

I sat in a plaza yesterday, behind La Moneda–Chile’s version of The White House. Diagonal paths come from all directions and meet up in the center, before darting off in opposite directions. People walk gruffly, generally ignoring one another–cell phones, busy faces, stern looks, fast paces. And just like in plazas everyday across the world… […]

Education & Wage Slavery: Hand In Hand?

A no-nonsense look at the education system’s hidden agenda–why we’re being taught what to think, instead of how to think, and how this affects not only us, but the bigger picture at hand. Put on your thinking caps for this one. (P.S. Please don’t egg my house if this makes you angry.)
