Culture

We’ve all seen them floating around the ether of the internet. Motivational Posters telling us to “Follow Your Dreams!” or “Step out of your comfort zone!” And I think we can all agree that most of it is a load of highly concentrated fecal matter.

So here’s a list of motivation posters for people who hate doing those kinds of things, actual people who can’t “Travel somewhere new every week!” or “Turn their dreams into reality!”

You don’t know me, maybe my dreams are nightmares, and I’ll be damned if those ever come to life! (Flying Zombies with Super Powers, there’s no where to hide from that.)

High School Student, and amazing human being Jeff Bliss Stands up to his lazy teacher after being fed up with another passionless class and packet of fill in the blanks.

When you first hear of a Student talking back to their Teacher you immediately think, ” Kids now a days are just plain dis-respectful!” but with an inspiring speech like this, you can’t help but side with the No Good Meddling Kid.

“If you would just get up and teach them instead of handing them a freaking packet, there’s kids in here who don’t learn like that, they need to learn face to face… You want Kids to come in to your class, you want them to get excited for this? You gotta come in here you gotta make ‘em excited. You want a kid to change, you want him to start doing better? You gotta touch his freaking HEART. You can’t expect a kid to change if all you do is just tell ‘em.”

Bukowski was in no way a “self-help” guru but you can’t deny that he’s a bad ass who lived his life exactly the way he wanted and didn’t give a s*&t what anyone else thought. And I don’t know about you, but I think there’s a lot to learn from someone like that.

So here are a few of Bukowski’s best tips for living a kick ass life:

1. Find your passion

find-what-you-love

Too often we are bogged down with decisions of what we should do with our lives, or if our families would approve. But forget what others think of you Find what you love, and do that till you die!

2. Be kind to life

kind-life

Don’t be so hard on yourself, you get out of life what you put in, and sometimes all that is needed is a better perspective.

3. Go Crazy

crazy

Don’t forget to go crazy at least once. Life is too short to stay sane and composed through out the entire ride, let your hair down and let yourself go crazy.

4. Be free.

5. One at a time

6. You’ve felt this way before

7. It’s never too late to save your soul

8. The Thing that matters the most

9. Remember.. We’re all going to die.
