Sheen On, You Crazy Diamond
Charlie Sheen. Madman or genius? Unhinged drug user or philosopher extraordinaire?
That’s the most important question of the day. And I think you all know what the answer is. Here’s a clue. It’s the second one. Charlie Sheen is a genius philosopher and, if you’re brave enough to follow his creed, success is just around the corner.
The Wisdom of Charlie Sheen – A Path To Blogging Nirvana
A word of warning. The utterings of Charlie Sheen might seem like the ramblings of a nutcase, but don’t be fooled. Because under the surface lie nuggets of purest wisdom.
“I have defeated this earthworm with my words – imagine what I would have done with my fire-breathing fists“
You need to defeat your earthworm. That slimy, creeping, insidious foe that’s holding you back. Your earthworm could be a lack of inspiration, the sneering of critics, or just old-fashioned fear of failure. But it needs to die. And how should you do that?
With your words. The pen, says Charlie, is mightier than the sword. Choose your words well, and they’ll serve you just as well as a fist that somehow breathes fire. Look to words to provide inspiration, wield your words to defeat the critics and rely on words to deliver success.
That’s how you’ll defeat your earthworm. No fiery fisticuffs required.
“I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available because if you try it you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body“
This is the best advice you’ll receive this year. Don’t try and be Charlie Sheen. Just be yourself. Because if you try to be someone else (or if you resort to stealing their ideas and articles), your credibility will die. The shame will cause your cheeks to redden, and you’ll feel like your face will melt off your body. Be original. That’s what Charlie recommends, and he couldn’t be more right.
Find your own voice, your own identity and your own style. That style could be philosophical, exuberant or somewhere inbetween. But it must be your own voice if you want to succeed.
Oh – and the bit about your children weeping over your exploded body? That’s just a bit of hyperbole.
“These resentments, they are the rocket fuel that lives in the tip of my sabre”
We’re all hard done by at some point in our lives, and Charlie Sheen knows and accepts that. But he doesn’t sit around and mope about his grievances. He uses them to fuel his success.
So when you find yourself attacked by the comment trolls and know-it-alls, don’t sit around and mope. Get snarky. Use that resentment as rocket fuel for your sabre-tipped pen.
Charlie shows that you can turn negatives into positives by using each unsuccessful venture to fuel the next, more positive step.
And if that doesn’t work, well, you’ve got a rocket-powered sabre. That’s pretty cool.
“Dying’s for fools, dying’s for amateurs“
Are you a fool? Are you an amateur? No! You’re a successful blogger! So stop worrying about failure, get out there and succeed!
You never know, maybe you too could be as amazing as Charlie Sheen…
