is the fuel of mediocrity

If you let yourself get comfortable with the idea that you have attained perfection in anything you do, welcome yourself to the station of mediocrity.

There you will dwell and find comfort in the monotony of mankind in the repetitive satisfaction of complacency.

If you want to rise out of everyday pains of boring and regurgitated normalcy,

Do what makes you uncomfortable and dwell at the unpleasantness of work at the utter extremity.

I once wrote ‘you’ll find it where it hurts most’ referring to the gems of humanity,

And I stand by that conviction that in order to succeed in anything you have to push past the barriers you’ve set for yourself of weak and limiting fragility.

Look for the pain, look for the torture, remain steadfast in your harshest brutality,

Push your thoughts to the edge, to your utmost and sincerest and your life will gain fluidity.

Ability to move, ability to comprehend, ability to know, in general just all out ability,

Unshackle your mind, from complacency’s prison and flee from triviality.


Simplicity of optimism


“An optimist is simply a man who hasn’t heard the news.”
OR woman for that matter.
No it’s not someone who doesn’t watch the news. Let’s not all become literalists now, rather it’s someone who is so tunnel visioned  that they block out all unnecessary feedback, all input, all incoming data streams to purify their thoughts and only focus on what they want.

Granted, the news is one cesspool of negativity, I have no idea why intelligent people actually indulge in it…… Hang on, they don’t.

Next time you wonder why your state of affairs is in disarray, hold the mirror up and take a long hard look at your indulgences. TV, news, slapstick shows, cinema, media etc…… well you know your answer.
