There's only one way to live life, one way to make full use of your short time here in this mortal realm: The Superman way. In case you don't realise it yet, life is too fucking short. I'm 24 this year, and according to the official statistics, I've got only 2 more sets of these to go before I sign out at 72......
Hell no. I'm going to live forever. I'm betting that my generation will be the one that discovers the secret to unlimited cell regeneration (which prevents aging, and consequently, death), but until that happens, I'm not going to sit around hoping and living in mediocrity.
Live life full. Every single day, every single thing you do. You don't have time for regrets and I-should-haves. You barely have time to get what you want, so believe in yourself, trust in your instincts, expand your resources, love your friends, put your family first, track down what you want with single-minded focus and then hunt it down mercilessly. Until you have that, everything else doesn't matter.
I used to think that nothing mattered in this world but the propagation of good against evil, kindness over brutality, world peace, and an eventual second renaissance that would propel us into a technological utopia of peace and stability.
It will never happen. Mankind will perish long before we see world peace. Natural selection determined that only the fittest survive and are allowed to propagate, and humans are the epitome of natural selection. We are the super-beings of this planet, and the only way we will stay that way is if the fittest among us survive. How do we decide who's fittest? Yes, we fight.
So what do I do? Hope that someone is kind to me and help me realise my dreams? :) Fuck no. You can do that. I'm going to live like a superman. I'm going to chase the things I want with single-minded intensity. No worries, no fears, only the absolute certainty that I will get it. And I'll get it fast.
As I said, life is short. There's no time for doubts, no time for worries, no time for regrets. Plan meticulously, and when you decide to act, act with absolute commitment and everything needed to get it. Chasing money, chasing influence, chasing women, chasing power. It's the same: Don't pause, don't ponder. Have absolute confidence. Do it.
There's only one way to live.
Be like Superman.
