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.)

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.

free-soul

5. One at a time

saving-the-worldNo one cares about your dream to solve world hunger. what have you done for the hungry person down the road?

6. You’ve felt this way before

bed

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve felt like this, and made it through.

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

lose-soul

8. The Thing that matters the most

fire

How well do you walk through fire?

9. Remember.. We’re all going to die.

all-going-to-die

Now that’s a wake up call if I’ve ever heard one.

10. Make Death Tremble to take you.

death-will-tremble

And that’s it!

That’s Bukowski’s top quotes for a kick ass life, now go out there and make death tremble to take you!
