My philosophy is simple, make reality your bitch. I’ve heard it said that life is what happens to you while you’re waiting for your plans to work out. What a waste of a life to spend it waiting for things to work out. I would much rather spend my time making reality my bitch.
Religious people suffer from an overdose of delusional positive thinking and a lack of action. They’re sure everything is just going to somehow work out for them. Positive thinking is not about believing that situations will magically workout for you. Positive thinking is about knowing that everything is going to fly off the rails at some point and having an unshakable faith in yourself that – no matter what – you will be able to take action, get things back under control, and get moving in the right direction again.
As an atheist, I have faith in myself the same way religious people have faith in a god. Gaining that faith is a process. People who live a life constantly going after what they want have practiced dealing with every shape and size of obstacle that could stand in their way. As they practice getting around today’s roadblocks, they insure that getting around tomorrow’s roadblocks will be easier.
If you want something, you’re going to have to go for it because nothing in this world with any value will ever be simply given to you. As the Chinese say, “Man sit with mouth open long time before roast duck fly in.” You’re going to have to jump into the situations you want in life with both feet. Then just relax, because you’re not in control, you are learning how to be in control. Keep it up and one day reality will be your bitch.
