Look over at the guy in the cubicle next to you.
Does he look impressive?
Do you envy him?
Does he look like he has his shit together?
Is he living his dream?
Did he enjoy his one week vacation last year when he stayed home and watched TV?
Does he constantly amaze you with all the new ideas he comes up with?
Is he in peak physical condition?
Can he walk up 2 flights of stairs?
Can he take 3 months off and do anything he wants?
Can he do 5 pushups?
Does he eat donuts for breakfast and McDonalds for lunch?
Is he married to a beautiful wife who supports him 100%?
Does he enjoy paying the mortgage and taxes on his house in the ‘burbs?
Take a long, hard look at this man. Take a long, hard look at him and then take a look in the mirror. Can you convince yourself you aren’t just like him? And is he thinking the same thing about you?
Bite the Bullet
Accept the inevitable pain and hardship with fortitude and emerge stronger, tougher, freer and richer than you are right now.
Next year Joe Schmoe Company Man will still be sitting at his cubicle. You can sit right alongside him or not. No one is putting a gun to your head.
