Wisdom from the Ty-D-Bol man

It took me a long time to accept the fact that just because something can be improved in my life, does not mean that it should be improved in my life.”

“The improvement is not the problem, it’s the WHY that’s motivating the improvement that matters. When one compulsively looks to improve oneself, without any greater cause or reason driving it other than self-aggrandizement, it leads to a life of immense self-preoccupation, a light and beneficent form of narcissism where one’s constant attention and focus is on oneself.

And ironically, this will probably make your life worse off.”

What dreams may come
