Such a simple question right? Well, if it is, I dare you to answer it! Cuz guess what? I just took that challenge and was a little surprised at what I learned about myself.
Here’s what I wrote:
“I’m a guy who loves to help people get over their own shit.” Good answer?
It’s a canned bullshit answer!
So, I decided to dig a little deeper. I’m really good about telling people “We often hate in others what we really hate about ourselves.” It doesn’t have to be the SAME exact thing, but the root will be. Here’s some examples:
- You hate hypocrites. Now, you may see yourself as all bitchin and shit, but take a good hard look. Are you good at giving people all your years of wisdom but don’t put it to use yourself?
- You hate hoarders. People who keep a bunch of shit around for no reason (at least to you). But, is all that crap in the garage or closet really neccessary? Are the years of papers from your school days really gonna win you some fucking award someday?
Who Am I? I’m a frustrated guy who’s passionate as all get out about helping other people when really sometimes I’m just trying to help myself.
I get internally frustrated alot more lately than I used to. Why? Because people don’t live up to my expectations. I can see the potential in nearly everything. But, what I’m really frustrated about is myself. My potential.
What I’m seeing in others is a direct reflection of what’s going on in my little pee brain.
See what I mean?
Listen, this thing we call “Life” is a journey – not a destination. I’m in it with you. Sure, I do have TONS of experience and knowledge to help a lot of people in a bunch of shitty situations, but that doesn’t exclude me from the same advice!
So, who are you? Be honest! Don’t worry about what some fucktard might say if they really found out you were scared, frustrated, and just confused. Cuz guess what? They’re probably just like you. It’s just a matter of whether or not they’ll admitt it.
But ya know what – I just did! I’m not perfect and will never claim that title. I’m a work in progress – just like you!
Until next time, I wish you KICKASS success!!!
