You will never get anywhere in the world if your mind is engulfed with ignorance, perhaps you will be happy but you will lack the mindset to be truly successful.
However, that doesn’t mean you have to conform to the plan others assume is correct. Everyone has their own journey, their own destination and their unique way of getting there.
Some people expedite this process and reap the fruits of their labor with haste, while others go through their entire existence thinking about tomorrow.
You don’t have to be ignorant to achieve a state of bliss; you simply have to do what makes you happy. If more people made this their major concern as opposed to struggling down a path someone else created it would be substantially beneficial.
I don’t follow a path, I create my own and leave a trail.
Don’t take this as encouragement to fulfill all of your immediate desires, that would make you weak and you would eventually succumb to the lack of stimulation.
Animosity is what creates the drive, however if you let doubt and sorrow linger then it leaves you in a worse position then the one with which you embarked.
If you allow yourself to follow your own ambitions you will never be disappointed. I’m not saying that “you can do anything if you put your mind to it” that’s the kind of bullshit that makes me want to strap a rocket to my dick.
I’m saying if your motivations are organic, then you don’t have to worry about the judgment of other people because you are the higher power. This isn’t a free pass to look down on people, but sometimes ants get stepped on, even if it isn’t on purpose.
If you worry about what others think, or allow yourself to be swayed by the ideals of another then you will never achieve to your full potential because you will never get out from underneath the dark cloud of self doubt.
Nobody else should have any determination about how you feel about you.
What it comes down to is that if you have enough confidence to look anybody in the eyes and say “Fuck You” then you will never be left thinking what could have been.
It’s not about what you do; it’s about being comfortable enough to know that you could do anything.
