Start with easy goals, like eating a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. Once you’ve successfully done that, you can move on to harder stuff.
It’s a vicious cycle, and Pig is riding it downhill.
Funny, it’s the same way with credit and interest rates
Reminds me of that old Job Corps PSA: A perplexing problem…how to get a job without experience, and how to get experience without a job.
an old story…
The ability to make good decisions comes from having experience.
Experience comes from having made bad decisions.
Have we ever discussed just why HE has the only brown hill in the vicinity?
The ultimate Catch-22
wise ass is sharper than ever since he came back from his vacation
Pig is successful at some things, like eating a lot of cheese and pizza while Rat is quite successful for drinking heavily, being anti-social and trolling people on social media. Anyhow, unfortunately for many, the great sage’s advice about success and confidence is the ultimate Catch-22.
The infinite loop!
Viscous circle !
Wise Ass strikes home.
You like sandwiches? I like sandwiches too! We should make a club! RIP Mitch Hedberg.
How about, “You have succeeded. You climbed this stupid hill. You asked me your stupid question. You can just consider every stupid thing you do as a success.”
Almost sounds like this – Position offered: Must have Masters degree, be willing to relocate frequently. Must have twenty years experience in five year old field that completely changes direction every six months. Family friendly business. Our workers are important to us. Work where you are appreciated. Must be willing to work overtime and be on call for tri-state area. Must provide own vehicle. Starting salary $20,500/year. No low ballers. We know what we’ve got.
Or you can just brag about how great you are, and a surprising number of people will believe you.
That’s why it’s best to be born into it.
Porklet is already successful – at having no confidence
Wise ass is vicious when talking about the vicious cycle.
Start having self confidence within yourself, Pig
Then how come that donkey just sits there and does nothing?
See all experiences you initiated on your own as a success – either in learning or in achieving. That not only gives confidence, but also happiness.
More puns, less Wise Ass.
Like making and eating a toasted cheese sandwich.
I tried going to the big Nate community and quickly realized it a bunch of cursing seven year olds, oh well
I make my bed every morning. Admiral McRaven advised graduates in his speech at the U of TX, Austin in 2014: If you make your bed every morning you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another. By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter. If you can’t do the little things right, you will never do the big things right.
And, if by chance you have a miserable day, you will come home to a bed that is made — that you made — and a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better.
If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.
Name your next pet Success.Then you have Success and can build confidence to succeed.
wordplay to the rescue again!!
By this definition, life is like a hamster wheel. No one is going anywhere.
Like when I graduated. All the jobs you apply for require experience. How do you get experience? Get a job.
Can’t spell success without succ’s
Be a lawyer. Success is spelled with SUE.
What would the Oracle of Delphi say?
Failure is the best way to succeed.
wipe your feet, pig.. that mountain isn’t dirt.
He: What’s he got that I don’t have? She: Awareness He: What’s that?
Some people have confidence, but with little to no discernible success. I’ll stop there; too much low hanging fruit.
I think you have learned a lesson, Pig. Deal with it.
Ah yes, the ol’ catch 22.
