if you stop trying to be happy, you just work, and end up being content (real happiness) through your "miserable" days at work.
this is the ultimate dichotomy, they don't want you to find out.
keep your misery.

kl: no. i just believe in money, either way. i'll monetize it for you.
smart republicans bootstrap and get it done becoming millionaires. cerebral
democrats hold onto a thorny past, and do everything to free themselves from that thorn, becoming billionaires. emotional
i try to be one before lunch, and the other after. i just don't which is which yet.

Your job is not the only thing a person can be insecure about. There are plenty of insecure people in this industry. But, if you're going to feel insecure about something, you might as well do something constructive about it and get a great job you like and make lots of money. Beats taking steroids, watching reality TV, arguing on forums, reading self-help books, or wasting time trying to get ass.

there's no correct opinion, but an objective thinking hierarchy exists. that's why those who prioritize work and tomorrow are always respected and paid.
that's why i love sports, not 'cause of loyalty. there's ALWAYS a correct way of thinking (the winner) and that thought pattern's the only one that matters.

what was your turning point?
ironically only when i finally acknowledged my limit, in my case new anonymous sex and the amount of time it consumed, and put it aside, did my many opportunities suddenly come to focus.
do you miss anonymous sex?
of course, but now i have myself... and money; i can just buy that without wasting time, or causing a dent in my fortune (sardonic laughter).

Cash runs the business and profit is the bottom line. Cash is not even mentioned on the Income Statement. Does all of this seem a little confusing? If it is, then great. Living in this paradox and resolving its seeming conflicts is a great part of the art and science of business leadership and success.

my 'a-ha!' moment was when i obtained what i thought i wanted.
i was california dreaming, enjoying the waves, but i terribly missed the rush and hubris of downtown soon after.
so then we moved to the mountains, fell into our own lovely world. then, i felt a strong electric drain from not daily exercising my potential.
i'm back in gotham, with a more experienced perspective, and i'm loving the concrete more than ever.

Most people have (with the help of conventions) turned their solutions toward what is easy and toward the easiest side of the easy; but it is clear that we must trust in what is difficult; everything alive trusts in it, everything in Nature grows and defends itself any way it can and is spontaneously itself, tries to be itself at all costs and against all opposition.
your source of spark is important to inspire. it's used to get you out of bed and down the right path.
once you've acknowledged your path however, forget the source used to obtain the spark, as your travel should be peaceful, solitary, and deep to allow you to perfect your art.
only revisit the source of spark on a need by need basis, but once accomplished, it's important to proceed in a solitary, understanding environment, otherwise the adrenal from the spark will just interfere with your craft. they should be used and applied as two different entities.

what keeps you motivated to be the best at your private equity position?
i tell everyone it's to support my family, put my kids through the best boarding schools, and that i love a good challenge. between you and me, it's all for wall street fashion; that's entirely 100%, it. call me vain, it's just as vain as a philosopher or doctor looking for acknowledgment for their public "beliefs," at least i'm upfront about it. yes, purely all for fashion to display at delmonico's, etc.
The music business hate me
Cause the industry ain't make me
Hustlers and boosters embrace me
And the music i be makin
I dumb down for my audience
And double my dollars
They criticize me for it
Yet they all yell "Holla"
If skills sold
Truth be told
I'd probably be
I wanna rhyme like Common Sense
(But i did five Mil)
I ain't been rhymin like Common since
When your sense got that much in common
And you been hustlin since
Go with what makes cents
I know what i'm up against
We as rappers must decide what's most impor-tant
And i can't help the poor if i'm one of them
So i got rich and gave back
To me that's the win, win
The next time you see the homie and his rims spin
Just know my mind is workin just like them
(The rims that is)

The founder of Amstrad, who is estimated to be worth £830 million, was speaking in an upcoming episode of the fifth series of the BBC reality show.
The 61-year-old responds: “If you’d asked me: “Is making money better than sex?” 30 years ago, I’d say: “It depends”.
“Now, definitely, making money is my priority.”

in the year 3009, all of the kids came out of new york and shot the paparazzi(*2). it was a thousand years before, that the monster first entered the city. famished for our hearts, and for our brains, and for our faces.
but it wasn't until the year 3009, that we realized that we could coexist with this monster with our MUZAAAAKKK, and with our technology (*1), and with our fashion.
(*1) code word, for art (bank account), cleanliness, and actual technology
(*2) j-birds, soulsuckers

in reality, this couldn't be further from the truth. avoid baseless arguments at all costs, since they consume too much emotional/intellectual capital, and most importantly time.
by having a "so leave" mentality with yourself and others, you'll become more action oriented.
i.e., if someone claims this country is socialist, simply ask why don't you leave? if you feel you are being underpaid, ask yourself, why don't i leave? the question cuts through rhetoric, affords you more energy, and things actually become accomplished.

being skeptical and curious and inquisitive about what's going on in the world..
if something is very cheap, by very definition people are not interested in it, and frequently that's where you find your best opportunities IF there's a change taking place, not just because no one's investing there

Superheroes tend to be orphans of sorts, and Marc Jacobs is no exception. His father, a theatrical agent in New York, died when Jacobs was seven. His mother, whom he has described in the past as 'troubled', is still alive, but he doesn't see her. 'I haven't spoken to her or my sister and brother in years and years,' he tells me. 'I never feel like it's a bad thing.'
Jacobs was brought up by his paternal grandmother, in the Upper West Side. 'She had a very bad relationship with her sister, whom I never knew, but I guess there was some argument and they never spoke again,' he says. 'Whenever I would mention something about my family, my grandmother would bring up the story of her sister and she would say, "We haven't spoken in years, so you'll get no argument from me.'
When Jacobs was in his teens he would go to the hyper-fashionable club Studio 54 all night, sometimes taking his books along so he could go straight to school in the morning. 'I had a ball,' he says. 'I mean, I really did.' He went to France for the first time at 17, and 'cried like a baby' on the plane home, because he felt so sure that he was meant to be a Parisian. 'Living with my grandmother, I just kind of grew up feeling like I was not going to be obliged to spend Thanksgiving with a bunch of people I didn't like – or who didn't like me! I shouldn't "shouldn't" do anything, or shouldn't "shouldn't" feel anything. I either do feel or I don't feel. I'm not going to "should" feel. Whether we're talking about contemporary art or we're talking about family, pretending that I feel something I don't feel doesn't really achieve anything. People say, "What if something happened to one of them?" Well, if that happens and I regret that, that'll be the way it is. But right now it's not something I'm regretting, so I can't act on that.' When Jacobs says that people should be shameless, he is talking about something more than exhibitionism. uk telegraph

'i don't think that tabloids, any magazines have any real valid opinions about fashion. i like to repeat things over and over. i like to wear the same things in different colors. i want to burn the imagery into people's brains. at the the end of the day you have to really feel good in what u wear, and even if it's a bit crazy, you feel good, like fuck everyone else.'
the book of gaga
this is the same concept with high finance/accounting. just like commercial media portrays it as boring and mind-numbing, you know better and skip happily against the brainwashed grain, getting richer and more fabulous every step of the way, with little competition since everyone is moving the other direction, following each other like sheep.

to attempt this, simply 'throw yourself' into an activity - work, gym prep, cleaning, debt reduction, resume creating, etc. keep the activities productive, so you can benefit in real terms. after all, happiness doesn't derive from the type of activity, but rather, one's letting go of self-consciousness by 'losing oneself' in the activity itself.

Remy: [groans] I'm hungry! I-I don't know where I am and I don't know when I'll find food again.
Gusteau: Remy, you are better than that. You are a cook! A cook makes! A thief takes. You are not a thief.
Remy: I am hungry.
Gusteau: [chuckles] Food will come, Remy. Food always comes to those who love to cook.

there comes a point, when the pain instilled by others to conform is diminished in comparison to the pain of continually accommodating others' views. in that sense, i'm "being myself" not to make some sort of stance. i'm simply walking away from the pain of not being myself, and am becoming too lazy to try anything otherwise.

think about it, fear of never dating someone hot forced me to the gym, look at my abs and my humble boy.
fear of my previous job, forced me to write up a great resume, and now am at a top 3 bulge bracket.
fear of reading articles from 45 year old men about regretting not doing it sooner, led me to come out.

love isn't as natural as people make it. 90% of the time it's manufactured, and can be applied to anything, work included. go into a field that pays well, and lie to yourself every day that you love it. in time, you'll genuinely be happy about your choices, while the rest continue to wonder if there's anything better out there, usually their entire lives.

c'mon, just dye blonde - ala warhol, madonna, and gaga.
embrace misery, it sets you free. stop running from it. 3 hour work intervals.
put down the blinders. dabble in different circles/lob. you'll pick up skills in each, helping you in each task.
entry to the street: use visions of morning orgies as the carrot, but always understand real happiness comes from simple doings.
too much of the former, you will get swept up in the vacuum and lose it all in a day. too much of the latter, and you'll have nothing to lose, to begin with.
