wow ok im passionate about this so here I go
There is little I HATE more than zombies walking round with defeatist, bitter angry attitudes. 'OOOHHH WOE FOR ME this is against me thats against
me, I cant do this because that stops me, this and that wont let me be what I want'.
ENOUGH!! YOU wont let yourself be what you want, its a lazy bitter world now where people want things instantly and arent prepared to put the work
in for it. And when they dont get it they blame everything but themselves, they repeat this process over and over and just become one angry ball of
flesh screaming F YOU to the world and everyone in it for not allowing them to get what they want.
My mum is the same as yours, moaning about the weather, whats on TV how life is crap, some people must just not be that happy. Thats another thing,
this fixation that people have that 'life is #' and 'life is hard'. Thats the funny thing its NOT and it doesnt HAVE to be. Life is what YOU make
it, if you want to believe that its crap and hard then it WILL be crap and hard for YOU and since so many people have this conclusion drummed into
them by their parents/teachers/media all their lives, then everyone continues to think life is crap and hard. Looking at 'the rich' with envious
eyes saying stuff like 'charge them more taxes, they should pay for me'. I kind of see where people come from with that but Really? Why should a guy
whos achieved what you couldnt be penalised for it? Its supposed to be an equal world, we SCREAM for equality, yet become complete hypocrits demanding
that richer more succesful people should subsidise us. Heres a thought, get off your backside stop wallowing in self pity and SUBSIDISE YOUR #ING
And another thing, the fact that (specially in the younger ages) 'good' is considered a negative!?? Smart people are ridiculed at school, people
boast about getting kicked out of school after school. Then the funny thing is these people who were so cool getting kicked out of school 15 years ago
are chasing the very smart people they used to bully asking for hand outs because they are 'rich'. Why are they rich? BEcause they were good and
smart? Why arent you rich? BEcause you were to busy trying to be cool to realise that your 'coolness' will only last a few years until school
finishes and your on your own.
Then there are the defeatist people, probably the ones that piss me off the most. These are the people who lack any sort of ambition thinking that
will 'never happen to them' so whats the point in trying. I told my friend once 'one day I will own a Ferrari' his reply was 'yea everyone says
that but they know they never will'!!!?? WTF!??? They KNOW they NEVER will???? Seriously, how hard is it to own a Ferrari? They are available to
everyone, its not like its a random lucky draw that decides wether you get one. All you have to do is work hard. Ahhh theres the problem there....
'work hard'. People ask me 'what do you want to do with your life' I say 'I want to be a succesful musician', the usual response is 'yea but
what do you really want to do?'..... Errr I just told you? Of course they start thinking im deluded because it will 'never happen to me'. But why
shouldnt it? Im a person, other people who are where I want to be are also people, so really whats the difference? What logical reason is there to say
I cant be a succesful musician? Do people just have a problem because I dare to have a dream AND follow it? Where as they feel they have to settle for
some mediocre woe for me job and life because it will 'never happen to them'?
Now dont get me wrong, I can be as negative as the next person, I DID kind of think in this way before, but the past year or 2 ive made a conscious
effort to take a step back and look at things instead of just jumping straight on the high horse. I concentrate on myself and what im doing, blocking
out (or trying to) external negative influences telling me that 'I cant'. Its a draining and demanding process but one thats well worth it. Focus on
what YOU want and whats best for YOU.
