When you remove the stuff out of your life that’s giving your career the vitriol it doesn’t need, you get into a journey of how life will go through the way you intended, the way you wanted. There is so much you can do about your life right now that it’s hard to imagine that you can’t get it a bit fixed at the same rate you mix a cocktail for your afternoon delight snack. Ok, have you heard of those writers in SNL who do nothing for money basically, but still get life out of their financially striving work? Then you should be able to find a good inspiration from them. You love to be able to function like them, to talk like them and see life in that perspective. If that’s what you want, then you’re not one of those who will fail. If you do, it’s perhaps because of the fact that we are never under anything of our control in this life, and all we have is illusion of control.
The last things you want in your life is to end up being 50 years old and still feel like you’re living the life of the slaves in 12 Years a Slave, or still feel alone and left out like in Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity. You’re always right. You can go on with your life believing that you can keep off the unhappiness from your trail, but you can also read this infographic right here and start learning a thing or two about transforming a life that’s full of saying “a thing or two” into something as sublime as an NYRB book.
