Recently, much to my comedic dismay, I was kicked in the nuts.
Yes, kicked in the nads, the balls, the pearls or whatever you and your locker room want to call them.
For those that have never been kicked in the nuts (I’m talking to you females) it is the one act besides proposing that can bring a grown man to his knees. And when that man is on his knees you’ll hear a symphony of swear words that will make the Church choir director cry.
It hurts that bad.
You want to know the crazy part?
The crazy part is I kicked myself in the balls. Well, not physically because you know physics, whatever the Hell that means; but rather mentally.
And it was after the twisting-nauseating pain that soon followed that I was overcome by a blanket of insight that I would like to share with you.
Are your nipples hard yet?
My insight was this: You Are Your Own Worst Enemy
The cat’s out of the bag (not that the cat was ever in there because you know cats and furthermore BAGS) but that’s the secret. You are your own worst enemy.
What’s the reason you’re not working in the field you want to be in? You.
What’s the reason you’re not making the money you want to make? You.
What’s the reason you’re not in the shape you want to be in? You.
What’s the reason you haven’t asked that special someone out? You.
I could go on and on but for the sake of your eyes, my fingers and the overall waning attention span of the room, I won’t.
You must be thinking: Well gee whiz Tony, you just took a massive shit down my throat and didn’t even take me out to dinner – some guy you are.
Relax amigo – there’s a sweet desert of relief somewhere in the next paragraph.
The Bright Side – You Are the Enemy
Here comes the vanilla explosion you’ve been dreaming about – since you are your own worst enemy, by nature you have the ability to control your destiny.
From what I figure, most people just need a good mental kick in the nuts from time to time to realize what path they’re on so they can pull over and make adjustments.
You see life is like yin and yang, you can’t have positive without negative as the forces are intertwined. It’s perfectly balanced like that. You have the power to control your life the moment you decide that you’re responsible for it – it’s quite the liberating feeling honestly.
I want to remind you that you have the power to make a difference; you just have to start. I know I’m just some guy you haven’t met but I hope this year your feet take you where you want to go.
Keep on keepin’ on.
