Your brain has been programmed to seek instant pleasure since you were born. Sold to you by big business for their profit and to keep you buying. These people don’t give a fuck about your well-being. Society doesn't care. You are supposed to be pathetic. You are supposed to be a slave to your vices.
You can fuck around in your spare time, watching YouTube, smoking weed, mentally masturbating on Reddit, actually masturbating to porn, etc. You can do all these things and get away with it in the modern world because to survive, you don’t have to work very fucking hard anymore.
With the advancement of society has come the destruction of work ethic.
You can easily get a cushy job, an average house, an average car, and be average fucking Joe. Or, you can be fucking Joe's wife while he's watching football. We all die eventually. All that matters is how fun your life is.
Would you rather watch others excel while you are a slave to cheap pleasure? Or would you rather be out there doing the real thing?
You likely sit on your ass and waste precious time, satisfying your reward system with cheap substitutes instead of working your ass off to achieve real goals. You don’t have to be a slave to these substitutes. The most successful people are not slaves. They are the ones with the whip.
I mean, just take a look at Schwarzenegger. Even now, in his 70s, he is making moves in politics and charities. One of my favorite quotes of his:
"The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else."
Fuck laziness. Fuck boredom. If you’re bored, you aren’t working hard enough. Get to fucking work. Go out, make connections, start a business, whatever. There is always something you can do to take a step away from the cheap life that you were supposed to live.
Break the fucking cycle. There is too much instant pleasure these days. Don’t fall slave to it. The changes that are hardest to make are the ones that aren't necessary to live a cushy life.
Don't cheat life with instant pleasure.
So some of you have been asking what I mean by "fun." By "fun" I mean being alive; not being depressed, not having low drive, not having low confidence, and being able to amuse yourself wherever you are. Delayed gratification is what creates this mentality. If you live life craving-to-craving this is something that is not feasible. You are only alive when you are looking at a screen.
