Unfortunatly everyone else was blessed with being atleast average but I am sooooo low status and worth nothing and it will never change.
Thanks for opening my eyes pal. I cant even sell drugs cause I don't know anyone...what a ****ing joke!
Once a loser always a loser. I QUIT!
Excellent! At last! Mike - you have just passed Test #2. Passion!
Have you ever seen those Popeye cartoons? What is Popeye's famous phrase?
THAT'S ALL I CAN STAND, I CAN STAND NO MORE! Before he goes off and beats up the villain and rescues Olive Oyl!
Great! Now we can get down to business, Mike. Now that you have awakened your passion. Now that you've gotten angry. Now we can begin.
First, let's understand a couple of things.
You have lots of value. And you are increasing your value every day you are at EMT training. And you can continue to increase your value, Mike. Of course, if you want to quit, then you won't increase your value and if you stop increasing your value, you will be a loser. But until then, you are not a loser - you are a gainer. So, don't stop.
Why do you say "No woman wants to date you"? Have you asked every woman in the world for a date? If not, you cannot be certain there is no woman out there for you. I know there are several women who are complaining, right now, there are no men to ask them out on a date! You have been asking the wrong women and the women who would love to date you are still waiting for you to find them.
The reason why no job will pay you more than $12 an hour is because you haven't found a way to be of more value that $12 an hour. Did you ever start looking for ways to be more valuable? No. You have been looking for ways to earn money without concern for the value exchange involved. You haven't learned that yet - but you will.
Nobody was blessed with anything you weren't blessed with the day you were born, Mike. And all this feeling sorry for yourself and pretending that everything is everybody else's fault doesn't wash with me.
I agree that many of the misfortunes you are facing are not your fault, but they are your responsibility to solve. And you have the power - and I can now see, the passion - to do something about it. That is a tremendous revelation and I am so happy you are beginning to see it.
So what is this tirade about, Mike? I have a good idea, what is really bothering you. I have asked you to make a commitment to the most important person in the world. Making a commitment is scary - I get that. Making a commitment to the most important person in the world (whom I imagine to be your mother and your father) is doubly scary.
Yes, Mike. I realize you are scared. Believe me, that is a good thing, right now. It will pass. And when it does - when the fear subsides, as it will - you will see that you have passed through the door that has been closed for you until now.
Take your time, my friend. Take a walk on the beach. Come back when you feel calm and we'll continue.
