Successful People Vs. Unsuccessful People
Read everyday? I should be a billionaire by that measure. :p
I always find these to be memes for the plebes since the narcissists in our society are the ones sadly rising to the top and they don't do things like continuously learn or compliment very often. I imagined a work world run like an academic seminar and well that expectation burned me a bit when I was young.
One part of growing up is realizing how the world really works.
Now don't get me wrong these are all good things to do on the green side.
We should all define success via God and what we desire too, not what society imposes. Sometimes I run into people who are overly goal conscious, as if life is nothing but a measuring contest and I find myself weary around them. I have set some goals and made them like having a DIY art show or even my first college degree, but what happens when your body diverts them. Even this blog was a "goal" at one point but I fear the life as a constant contest and competition thing is wearing more then me out.
The meme has the societal "keeping sweet" demands, never criticize, nope not even when your boss comes in drunk to work, I guess and the whole "entitlement" thing has been used to shame young people and others into accepting diminished economic futures sponsored by the greedy with the growing inability to make an income that will actually support them. Sometimes I want to vomit hearing well situated types going on about how young millennials are "entitled" when the millennial is 27 years old without even a job that will pay basic rent and said person has been a homeowner and had a family since their early 20s. Ah they've done a number with that one especially the "right wing" and they just don't use it on some kid who really may be irresponsible and drugging and partying his way through life.
