I read this somewhere a few years ago. I could not find the original author for this now.
I have no sympathy for the weak, the stupid, and the lazy.
One thing is certain in this life: “You deserve what you settle for”
Where there is a will.. there is a way. You show me a dedicated, smart and hardworking person that is determined to better themselves and I will point to them and declare a winner.
Again- the lazy, the weak, and the stupid will always blame something. They will blame the system, the government, their upbringing, parents, childhood, social status, race, environment, boss, company, friends, family, location, size, height, weight, genetics, anything and everything but their own determination and will and hard work. Excuses are for those lazy, weak and stupid people that need them. Losers need excuses. Winners do not need them- They pass right through failure on their way to success.
I also look down on the helpless. It is a choice. It is a mindset. It is what they deserve if they settle for it.
Without losers- there will never be winners. These lesser people serve a purpose and a necessary place in the world. Without them- everyone would be ordinary and the same. Problem is that if you snapped your fingers and got rid of them all- the winners would now be the ordinary- well then those who are true winners and extra ordinary would again rise to the very top. Because something in them tells them to do it. They have to do it. It is who they are. They don’t even have a choice. For them it is not even an option. Its a must.
That is who winners are. And those who are unwilling would then become the losers. It is Darwinism and survival of the fittest. The laws of nature. This world is a cruel place and it can eat you up if you let it.
Stop thinking people are helpless- and need your help.. They don’t need our tax money, or these crap government programs to help them. They don’t need others charity, or kindness, or generosity. They don’t need help. They need ambition and determination, and perhaps just given a chance by someone who thinks they deserve it. They can make their own way in the world and better themselves.
Most are unwilling to do it. they are happy with where they are. they look to scam, and use, and take. They cry… and feel like they deserve. well you know what they deserve… They will deserve what they are settling for.
The helpless are a choice and a mindset and their situation is a result of their choice
Your in the wrong sport if you don’t thing this way.
Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.
Lots of people limit their possibilities by giving up easily. Never tell yourself this is too much for me. It’s no use. I can’t go on. If you do you’re licked, and by your own thinking too. Keep believing and keep on keeping on.
“Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?”
― Mary Manin Morrissey
“Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.” – Stephen R. Covey
Don’t let your struggle become your destiny.
It’s real easy to get into a slump.
Who doesn’t at some point in time?
We always think we have got it so bad when in fact someone else,
somewhere else has it so much worse than you do.
Life always brings us worries troubles and sadness, that’s the way it is. We tend to think the past is always full of happier times.
Face the reality of today and the possibility of tomorrow.
Dwelling on what once was something doesn’t push forward today.
Live freely and by the minute. you never get it back. Things change, people change, it’s all apart of the journey.
Don’t let your struggle be the part that shines through the most.
We all go through challenges and they help form who we are – but those challenges do not singularly define us.
Never give up, you’re better than that.
Maybe a couple of repeats this week. Cleaning out my folders.
Amazing short lecture by Alan Watts discussing the importance of finding your “Why.” What if money were no object? What would you spend your life doing? Alan Watts said “It’s better to live a short life doing what you love than it is to spend a long life being miserable.” He’s absolutely right. My wish for you is that you find what it is you love to do and do it, become great at it. Do that and the universe will make it possible to sustain yourself doing that.

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

Do not be concerned with escaping safely- lay your life before him!!”
