    Go, do and be

    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

    Winning. Whenever someone hurts me, make sure they'll pay and never do it again. Being the best at everything I can be the best in with my capacities. Taking care of myself, protecting myself, so I can stay the best and don't lose my motivation. Being aware of my strengths and weaknesses. Staying authentic, except when authenticity stands in the way of my prestations.

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    Right now, I don't even know which option I'd pick. I'm still thinking about it.

    Hmm... that's a good one. Would you consider winning as achievement?

    That's sort of what I meant by 'Personal Pleasure'. I guess I could have worded it slightly better.

    I could consider winning as an achievement, but it's never good enough for me. Whenever people want me to slow down, I get angry and aggressive. Then they want to slow me down even more, but they just don't get it.

    i think other, since i had especially lately in my years have had an almost obsession with knowledge, so i think my motivation is to learn as much as i can, and hope that will open many doors for me to further motivate me...

    altho all of that is on hold since laziness is a b*tch!
