What if a failure today meant a bigger success later down the road?
If it doesn't work out this time, that doesn't mean it won't work out.
God's delays are not God's denials.
The system is not built for you to succeed. You have to break through it.
It's not the end of the world. It's just a fucking bummer.
You get to a million by being happy with the hundred you have today.
Most people think it's the opposite.
If I can just get to a million, then I'll be happy.
(You can use whatever word you want after "million" - followers, friends, subscribers, viewers, readers, or dollars.)
Why do we have it mistaken?
The million is the style bucket. The happiness is the substance bucket. We get them confused. We think we have to fill one to get to the other. But what is in the other? Are we really searching for substance?
We are, but we disguise it as style.
The key to getting to the million is being happy with what you've got now.
Why do so many of us have this backward?
Do we have it backward?
I guess there's only one way we could find out for ourselves.
And that's thinking of something we're happy with now, and looking back to see if we got here by being happy then.
I really do wonder where this belief stemmed from, and why so many of us cling to it.
Was it built into our DNA? Is it a prehistoric concept?
We may never know, but I would like to invite you to question this notion with me.
Live with substance!
P.S. I didn't want to outright calls this a poem, but I did hope you read it like one. So I titled it "meop" instead.
