“I enjoy controlled loneliness. I like wandering around the city alone. I’m not afraid of coming back to an empty flat and lying down in an empty bed. I’m afraid of having no one to miss, of having no one to love.”—Kuba Wojewodzki, Polish journalist and comedian (via 5ft1)
do u have any tips on pushing yourself towards future career + ambition as a teen? esp. going into a field as a minority party, presenting a different perspective, etc-- what are your methods, how do you focus on your goals & stomp everything in the path of them, how do you stay motivated and demand to be taken seriously, i want to dominate & i know i can (i'm going into computer science/tech) but need help w/ motivation, starting steps, how do u set urself up for success, mistakes & victories?
you’re replaceable unless and until you prove otherwise
stop focusing on having a method and just do things
own up and embrace and recognize your mistakes
nobody has time for your ego
don’t apologize for your thoughts or feelings as a matter of politeness or habit
never assume that when people disagree with you they are attacking you personally — it’s honestly not about you
don’t fuck with energy vampires
find people smarter than you and make them your best friends and mentors
if you’re running a long game, everyone is important — remember that
see step one, and memorize
i honestly have never needed motivation or lacked ambition when it has concerned my dreams though. like, it might take me awhile to finish a story or whatever, but…..the hustle???? has never???? been something??? i needed to be convinced into??? take what is yours. it is there. it is waiting. if you don’t, someone else will. you’re not the only one who wants it.
