Life’s too short to follow the conventional advice from the hard-coping masses who tell you to be humble.

Everybody thinks humility is a desirable quality.

I call bullshit.

Here are some synonyms that come straight from the dictionary for the word humble…

  • Low ranking
  • Meek
  • Servile
  • Ordinary
  • Inferior
  • Unremarkable
  • Low-born

Do any of those words describe who you’d like to become?

If so, act with the utmost humility and see how far that takes you in life.

I’m of the philosophy that you’re better off believing you are the fucking man while supporting that mentality with a disciplined lifestyle.

Irrational self-confidence is grossly underrated.

It attracts you to high-level people. It moves mountains for you. It manifests the things you deeply desire.

The world reflects your beliefs, and what better way to eventually get what you want than by knowing you are great while continuously working towards it?

No other worldview compares.

This is where we ruffle some feathers.

Everybody and their mother wants you to be humble because they act like crabs in a bucket. The moment you try to escape, they try to bring you back down.

The moment you begin to believe in yourself is one where you become a mirror for others — reflecting all the days they’ve acted like a lazy piece of shit.

From this, you are made to be an easy target for people who despise what they’ve become in life.

Wear clothes that look good and fit well; you become a target.

Develop an athletic physique; you become a target.

Speak to others about the importance of sleep and nutrition; you become a target.
