I dont know if you have notice but my sig has changed. it is a part of a quote from my favorite movie The Hustler. The full quote is as follows.
Everyone struggles some more than others but any idiot can sit there and give up and start feeling sorry for themselves. We remember those who over come their obstacles not those stop and complain and start to feel sorry for themselves and expect others to give them what they feel they are entitled to. Those who are mentally strong will be the ones who prevail. those who have the will to succeed will succeed. Believe me I know. Don't be a born looser.
Nothing wrong with people who do that. I see people like that all the time, and if they didn't my stock in this world wouldn't be nearly as high. What you have to realize is that these people are crippling themselves. They will live a pitiful existence, they will never achieve anything and that includes happiness. But because of these wastes of flesh I can operate at a strong 40% and be awesome, not just in the work place but in the things I achieve on my own time.
