I really agree with this. I look back on my life and wish I had the outlook that I have now back then. I would've done so much better in college because I would've made more friends and applied myself more. I remember my dad telling us kids that we should ask questions and if there isn't a sign that says you can't go there, then why not? Explore! Learn!
Couldn’t have said it better. You’re a great writer!
Relating so very much. It's slow, but I'm working my way into theatre and acting. Should never have been shy about it in high school. Forward momentum!
Awww (blushing) thanks :)
What if your dream is to get married and have kids? People change. There’s a risk in everything you do because future you isn’t the same as you now
I'm 57 and considering buying a futon. My mattress is very old.
Yes, and it's also worth mentioning that he got married and had a kid well after he was already living his dream of being a professional comedian.
He is evolving fast. His handwriting got better mid thought.
Yeah there are definitely two different hand writing styles here. This is fake
yup. apart from the obvious differnt sized letters, the w in the first part is a double-u, the one in the 2nd part is a double-v.
That kid is going places.... assuming the world doesn't beat that way of thinking out of them as they get older.... go them :P
This is the lamest attempt at a karma grab that I've ever seen.
I feel like you might get some flak but I agree. A little kid meeting his idol and “dreams come true” isn’t really motivating to me.
Aye, fucking when? 28 bastard years on this planet and haven't had anything go my way...
People are rewarded in public for what they practice for years in private
They say it takes 20 years to create an overnight success, but what they don't tell you is that's the same amount of time it takes to create a miserable failure, and you don't really know which one you are until the day after.
The layout of the top blocks annoys me
Here, take these:
This dude doesn't look like he's either of those things.
Yeah, that guy is going through some shit. Or he was caught right in the middle of an angry Footloose style dance
Well, Who said you cannot have both? It is not necessary that our success is measured by others. I feel both successful and satisfied by achieving targets I set for myself.
Good thing Im unsuccessful and unsatisfied with it.
It's amazing how talking to a child like a person is a novel concept for people. The best thing you can do as a parent is talk, explain, and listen.
I’d like to have kids one day, and I’ll never forget something I heard about it. “Be the person you needed when you were a kid.”
That father right there, he was exactly what I needed when I was growing up. Thank you OP for showing me a way I can be that to my future children, should they need it.
My mother was more a believer in actions speak louder than words, so she resorted to the wooden spoon or the broom.
When I was in high school I was talking to a mom at church and her 3 year old ran up to her in tears hysterically crying. The mom said in a calm voice “I want to help you but I can’t understand what you’re trying to say. Calm down and tell me what’s wrong.” The boy took a few deep breaths then told his mom that he fell and hurt his knee.
It was such a simple parenting method but it really stuck with me even after 15 years.

Please don't turn into Facebook
With bad math, anything is possible!
This is the dumbest shit I've seen today.
This subreddit is awful for getting motivated. Its full of shallow and uninspired content and it feels like its a parody of itself more than anything.
Uh. Is this motivation or a threat?
shit, I gotta get off reddit and get stuff done
My future self is such a pervert
I instantly guilt clicked out of Reddit after reading this. Got back on to read the comments and write this comment. Now I'm off to be productive.
This quote is good at making people feel bad about themselves.
Then you're dead, surprise!
Great, the longest amount of time until Friday ...
"Life sucks and then you die"
Edit: As a metalhead, I use this from a band called Upon A Burning Body. The rest of the line is "So live it up, who gives a fuck, let's tear it up tonight". Not as depressing in that context lol
