Great video. I cant say enough how much I hate slaving away for an ungrateful pig just to buy food. Life will get better as long as we keep pursuing our dreams.

While I agree with a lot of what Joe Rogan said in the audio clip,
Its an overly romanticized idea of how life should be, and a little unrealistic


if you have a family or people depending on you, and you have to work 8hours + commute to a job so you can put food on the table, you will do it, and some people are happy to do it, happy knowing they are providing for their family.

People should definitely pursue their interests & work with their skills, but also be a realist, and know that you may have to be flexible or at least pay some dues and work a shitty job or 2 before you reach your destination.

I listened to other videos of his and they touched on that. I don't remember the words exactly but they said something like "what if someone says they want to be famous?" And Joe was like "Well if you are an asshole like that and you feel that you have to be famous to be happy, you need to be realistic and figure out what you want to do exactly in life."

I think what he is hitting on is that you have to know what you want and you have to know how to get it. I'm working on doing something with my life that most people dream about and I put up with daily with negativity and getting told I'm not being realistic... I haven't made it yet but one of these days I hope to look back and see that dreams can come true if you work hard at them and do what you need to do.
