Sick of My Sims Having Better Jobs Than Me

2

[NOTE: I AM An OBSESSED CRAZED AVID SIMS GAMER. If you never played sims, sims is a video game in which you can control the day to day  lives of people. Give them jobs. Make them fall in love. Give them a family. Take them to the gym.]

My Sim  has written 12 novels. 

My Sim has had two best sellers.

And is Currently making over  $100,000 a week in royalties.

He is still a young adult and has made it to the top of his career path.

And when his is not writing, he is winning awards or going on vacation.

While this is all amazing and I have  worked extremely hard to get him this far , no cheat codes scouts honor, this is adding nothing to my own life.

I am a little like what the HECK!! Because currently my cyber creation is more hard working and has more to show then I do. And that just is not right at all. That is why I have decided to cast away things that make procrastinate like the sims, excessive tv, and movies, to finish my goal of writing 4 scripts this summer.  I am saying this now so that I have the internet to hold me accountable.

For I am better then my sims. I can achieve what I want to do if I put my mind to it.

There is a saying I just heard the other day that goes like this: How do you get to the top of the mountain ?  Keep Climbing.

Wishing you an amazingly  productive week,

Lexie

A Tale of Two Nouns : Failure Verse Rejection

I know it’s rough when you aren’t picked for the baseball team. When you didn’t get the job you wanted. When the person you like does not answer your calls. (Quick side bar to all my teachers who ever mentioned something like don’t ever date a comic writer, a spanish teacher, or a electrician and gazed a way into space… I KNOW YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT A PAST LOVER… So stop trying to hide it… because you trying to speak in vague angry terms only makes the room more awkward and you look crazy… thanks)

Rejection does not equal failure. R-E-J-E-C-T-I-O-N is not how you spell failure. Rejection hurts but it is not failure. Failure is when you give up trying, when you stop getting out of bed, when you stop moving. Failing is not failure, if you try again. If you fail let that be inspiration to get back on the horse. Let that drive you to be better. Let that make you strive for greatness.

Perspective is key. Even Thomas Edison said when testing out the light bulb, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

Babies learning to walk teach us a lot, they fall and they fall and yet the continue to try to walk. And they do afters a lot of fails. Found this video online and I thought it was a good way to end the post.

As the song says, I get knocked down but I get up again,

Food for thought next time you get rejected.

Cheers,
