Don’t be a schlep.

Supafrenz says,"Don't Be a Schlep."

Add up all the time you spent today, this week, this month, this year, complaining, and you probably will have found about an extra 20-30 hours you could have spent improving your situation.

I feel we should just all stop feeling sorry for ourselves. We can complain about how the system is screwed up, blame our ability to get ahead because there’s no opportunities, and/or submit to our current circumstances. There are 3 operative words there: Complain, Blame, and Submit. These words are forms of excuses, words that don’t allow for out-of-the-box thinking, which, if you find yourself in a difficult situation, can act as a 65-ton anvil tied to your ankle. You get incapacitated, stagnant, at those moments.

Honestly, there’s no excuse for anyone to not succeed. Criteria for success is a very personal thing, because each person is different. We are given, by somebody/something, these unique set of circumstances. That’s not to say some don’t have shittier experiences than others, but hey, you play the hand you’re dealt, and if you don’t, sit and rot. That’s life. Sink or swim, as my cousin and I always say.

Creating excuses is deflecting responsibility to yourself, to those that you love, and to those who love you. Take responsibility, make the hard decision, trust your instincts, and things will work out, somehow, some way.

Everyone is a designer. Everyone has the ability to design their life. You’re going to mess up, you’re going to fail, you’re going to be hated, but you’ll probably end up doing more good than bad for the world, and more importantly, for yourself.

Get yours.

Complex people make equally complex decisions, with eyes on the greater goal. Sadly, complex people require complex happiness.

Life was easy before we realized that shit actually hits the fan…and concluded that life is consciously avoiding throwing shit at a fan.

As the traveler who has once been away from home is wiser than he who has never left his own doorstep, so a knowledge of one other culture should sharpen our ability to scrutinize more steadily, to appreciate more lovingly, our own.

How to Love Your Enemies

Instead of saying, “I have to have my way,” say to yourself, “I don’t know everything. I can accept an outcome I don’t see right now.”

Which is worse, saying “F**k you” to someone’s face, or while driving to church, wishing death upon that same person?
