FORCE Your Grad To Watch Mike Rowe’s IMPORTANT Video On ‘Following Your Passion’ NOW!!
This is seriously one of the best short videos on life advice I’ve ever seen. I mean, apart from Life HACKS!!! Anyway, if you have a relative or loved one that graduated this year, kidnap them, tie them to a chair, prop open their eyelids A Clockwork Orange style, and force feed them the brilliant wisdom of this video from the great great great Mike Rowe!!!
I can’t tell you how much I love this video. My hands slowly curl into fists and my lips snarl whenever I hear some rich Hollywood moron telling everyone to “follow your dreams.” It’s just plain stupid advice. And we ALL know the horror stories of people who failed at life because they chased every little whim that fell into their empty head.
What Mike Rowe is bumping into here is a long held principle of human nature that helped craft Western Civilization – habituation. Man is by nature a habitual animal. If you do something long enough, you get better at it, and begin to enjoy it. But what we teach our kids is the OPPOSITE – to do whatever they hell is fun to them, no matter how useless they are at it. And we churn out useless people who chase pointless dreams.
I don’t know if he would agree with my recapitulation of his video, but I do know that I absolutely love what he’s doing here. These are terribly terribly important things that our society used to teach Americans, and now no one does.
So spread the good news, people.
