Stop wasting your time living someone else’s idea of the ideal life.

What would The Rock do?

Just want to take a moment to highlight how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson talks to and about people, his career, his family, and his life.

The love, care, passion, sincerity & gratitude is obvious even when he isn’t explicitly pointing it out. This is a very wealthy man who doesn’t make other people feel poor. And the world is a brighter place because of it.

He sets a very high bar, but just imagine if more people — especially those in power — tried to reach it.

I don’t think the journey to get there is a secret. It starts with being sincere, grateful for what you have, and leading your life with love for others and not being consumed with love of money, power, fame, or hatred of other people.

Dear meme makers…

Dear meme makers...

Dear meme makers,

Please spare the world from your “the most important thing you can ever do or decision you can ever make is…” statements. There are over 7 billion people on the planet. There is no single recipe for living a fulfilling & rewarding life or being successful or happy that meets the needs of all people.

If a personal development meme goes to extremes by using phrases like “the best” “the most” “always” “never” or tries to tell you what you “need” without providing context or qualifiers, it is likely, at the very least, an opinion and not a fact. And at the most, frankly, superficial bullshit designed to sound good and gain likes without actually helping anyone.
