SCHMUCKS OF THE WORLD UNITE
To my fellow low achievers...
We are living in the middle of a self-esteem epidemic.
Most of us are down on ourselves.
Thinking we don’t match up.
To make it worse - everywhere we look we are surrounded by images of high-achievers – people who’ve gone on to do great things and who have praise heaped upon them.
But I actually think we’ve got it upside down the way we venerate the people who do great things in society.
It’s actually us – the shit people – who deserve a pat on the back. We’re the ones muddling on through life with our shoddy DNA. We’re the ones getting up in the morning when – let’s be honest – for a lot of us there’s not much of a point.
But we do it anyway. We brush our teeth. We change out of our pyjamas. We eat toast. We’re the ones who deserve some praise.
And what of the so-called “geniuses” who walk among us?
