Picture this – an opulent mansion, swanky cars, and sharp suits. The high-life at its finest. Now, imagine walking in on this scene unexpectedly. Your heart flutters - are you a part of this lavish society or just a poser? Welcome to my dream diary, where I dissect this sensuous journey into the world of success and wealth.
I love people watching, I admit it. The way you dress, the car you drive, it all tells a story. It's like a flirty wink from a stranger across a bar – it piques your curiosity. In my dream, I spotted these social cues and, oh boy, did I run with them. Dressed to the nines, driving lux cars, they had 'millionaire' tattooed on their foreheads. I found myself, clad in my own metaphorical tux, amidst these tycoons. Had I hit the jackpot or was I just bluffing my way through? With a devilish grin, I dived into this extravagant mystery.
Flying solo on this adventure, I soon realized I had given these high-flyers too much credit. The next day, it dawned on me – my vision of a millionaire's lifestyle was a champagne bubble waiting to burst. What made me any different? Then it hit me. The real game isn't just about being a part of the millionaires' club, it's about spotting opportunities and seizing them, like an irresistible dance partner.
I found my rhythm and boy, did it pay off. The money flowed, stashed in every corner like secret love letters. Suddenly, I was more than just an impersonator; I was one of them. My newfound power also gave me the ability to sense danger, like noticing your lover's wandering eye. While others met their downfall, I danced around the catastrophe, my eyes on the future.
Then came the plea for help. Money, I thought. That's all I could offer. But was I any different from them now? I had to step back and soak it all in. The crumbling building symbolized my shattered illusions, and the clear horizon promised a bright future. This wasn't about guilt for leaving someone behind, like an old flame. It was about celebrating my success without feeling like a traitor.
As the wise Jay-Z once said, "I can't help the poor if I'm one of them, so I got rich and gave back to me that's the win-win."
So, go ahead and indulge in a bit of self-love. Embrace your success and let it illuminate the way for others.
Remember, "If you can't see your success, change your vantage pointe."
On March 29, 2014, I experienced an intriguing dream that I instinctively jotted down in my Evernote. This dream recently resurfaced, providing an eerie sense of clarity and a bridge between an old way of thinking and a new perspective. I encourage you to read it and share your immediate thoughts. I will later share my own interpretation.
In the dream, my friend Marcus and I were driving, chasing the vision of a Lamborghini he had seen in downtown Norfolk earlier that day. We found the coveted car amongst a row of luxury vehicles. As we stopped to take a photo, the drivers, clad in black-tie attire, entered a nearby mansion. I followed their trail, leaving Marcus behind.
Stepping into the mansion felt like stepping into a realm of luxury, a place reserved for millionaires. But as morning arrived, the scene shifted dramatically. The mansion was filled with impoverished people, many of whom I had seen earlier in black-tie attire. Conversations with one of them revealed that these individuals had lost their jobs due to the Chinese owners closing the business.
Suddenly, a van filled with money appeared, and I seized the opportunity to stash it away. However, the Chinese owners threatened to demolish the mansion if the money was not returned. Soon after, a plane flew towards the mansion, dropping a bomb. I took cover, still holding onto the money. As the mansion burned, people approached me asking for help.
Amid the chaos, I noticed some people who, like me, seemed unaffected. Some were even engaged in an interview. The scene then turned ominous as it appeared that everyone, including the Chinese owners and the displaced workers, was turning against me.
Faced with a decision, I had to choose whether to maintain my wealth and align with those who seemed to be discussing me or to help those I deemed helpless because they chose not to change their circumstances. I decided to approach the group discussing me. At that moment, I woke up.
Your immediate thoughts upon reading this are invaluable. They offer different perspectives and may even help illuminate aspects of the dream that I may have overlooked. Dreams are complex and multifaceted, and every viewpoint helps in gaining a more holistic understanding.
Remember, being 'fuching selfish' isn't about disregarding others, but about prioritizing your happiness in a way that others can be inspired to do the same. "If you can't see your success, change your vantage pointe."
