"Learn how to set goals.
That's the key to everything.
That includes designing your own success.You define what the goal is, it's not somebody else's goal,it's yours.
People think automatically "oh I don't want to make money" or reach other people's goals. It's not what your relatives want you to do or what society wants you to do. All goal setting is is figuring out what you want to do with your life, so whether you want to be a CEO or the happiest hippy in the world, set goals. I was totally lost in my life until I figured out how to set goals.So from my perspective it's the most important thing you can do. There are tons of goal setting books out there and you can get good advice from any of them (I mentioned two of them earlier).
My big goal which I never do perfectly is to forgive everybody in advance. That is the state I want to be in that I am never in. To have so much love that no matter what people do to you it does not bother me for a second.It would bother me for months when people used to insult me or get in my way or whatever I thought was an attack or a slight. It would bother me for months, weeks, depending on what the thing is. I've whittled it down to moments, minutes, something really horrible maybe a week. I try to make it as short as I can (I'm not Jesus or Buddha) but it's a state of constant forgiveness and love.
Learn to set goals and try to strive for that state of perfection (I hate saying this because people can say Oh you got mad at this person but it's a state I want to achieve before I die, I have another fifty years to work on it). Once you start to think it's a good thing to do, with goals and having a mind state of being loving and forgiving,it will change how you interact with people and society. I wished I lived it as good as I preach it!"
Drew also pointed out that being a celebrity does not make that person any better than someone who is not.
"People think that celebrities are another thing," he wrote. "All a celebrity is is a person with another type of job than you have. To make them seem like they are better or less than you is a mistake. All it is is a different job with different job requirements."
"If you talk to the guy who did the plumbing in your house or the guy who fixed your computer and saved your hard drive and you saw them in a restaurant, would you give them a head nod or would you say 'hey man thanks for fixing my computer!' If he was with his family maybe you wouldn't say anything, but if he's at a bar and by himself, it's maybe different. And that's all celebrities are is people who have a different job than you. If you think they are better than you because of what they do you're wrong."
