Who are you? It’s a simple enough question, but my experience has been that most people can’t answer it. The sad reality is that most will walk around declaring to everyone else, “I’ll be whatever you want me to be so I can feel like I’m worth something.” Why then is it that with so many people willing to do anything to be loved, so few feel loved?

I’m a minimalist; however, for the things in life that are necessary to have, I customize whenever possible.
It’s time to get serious and ask yourself, are you playing to win or just a bad loser? You’ll then want to apply this same question to the people you associate with: Are they playing to win, or just spending their time spouting bullshit? After reading this you’ll know who’s going to actually accomplish something during their lives and who just needs to join the Shut-the-Fuck-Up Club.
Life is much more enjoyable when you’re awesome, and the key to becoming awesome is surviving what won’t kill you.
