Track #2--You're So Vain

"You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you"
~Carly Simon 

Dear you,

Yeah, you. You know who you are. You are the one who thinks this is about you even when it's not. You are the one who thinks the whole world revolves around you. You haven't reached your dreams because someone is out to get you; it couldn't possibly be because you haven't tried hard enough, could it?

Rewind. Let's think about it. Is it ever your fault? No, it's always someone else's problem. The world is out to get you, the people in your immediate path are successful because of luck not perseverance according to your whining words.

Well, enough is enough. Get off your pedestal. No one is impressed with the one who doesn't get their hands dirty. Get ahead by doing, not just saying you are going to do it. Take ownership of your own life. Don't expect things to get handed to you.

I got where I am today because of skill and hard work. Luck has nothing to do with it.
