What is the problem with you?
Tell me what is the problem with you?
Why do you chase after material goods?
Why do you chase after the vanities of this world?
Why do you chase after the latest trends like a sheepish trend-follower with no initiative?
Why do you chase after the emptiest of celebrities?
Why do you chase after the false heroes that speak like true soothsayers but are truly venomous snakes?
Why do you talk about salaries and shekels like a greedy criminal banker?
Why do you talk about socio-economic statuses like as if your life depends on it?
Why do you talk about the quantity of your friends and followers like as if it is a genital-measuring contest?
Why don’t you strive for spiritual betterment?
Why don’t you strive for true heroism?
Why don’t you strive for altruism?
Why don’t you strive for legitimate contentment with oneself without the unnecessary excesses?
Let me tell you this – all of this…
…is just mediocre and banal.
All you are doing is embracing mediocrity and banality.
Mediocrity is moronic, and banality is boring.
So why are you settling for mediocrity and banality?
Never settle for mediocrity and banality, but rather…
Strive for magnificence and brilliance…
…and never let anybody hold you back.
