What’s considered to be true is fought over. Individuals search for truth but groups search for consensus—and society is the largest group. So the biggest problem we run into is this: What society wants for you is not always what’s good for you.

America should create a 3rd political party (virtual), headed by a Democrat / Republican based on who wins POTUS election
When a Democrat wins, Republican runner is 3rd party's candidate and, vice versa
3rd party wins when Dems & GOP votes are less than non-voters
It'll be fun ✌️
== Example ==
Donald vs. Hillary;
Runners; Mike & Tim
Now check his votes (63 Million) is greater than non-voters (92 Million)? no, so..
Tim is the POTUS.

If you want to be irreplaceable, you have to be unique.
If you want to be unique, you have to be authentic.
If you want to be authentic, stop listening to everyone and everything else.
It’s drowning “you” out.

“I think one way to think of the President of the United States is that you’re sort of the mayor of this country, but you’re dictator of the world, because in the US your power is very limited.
Outside the US you can do a great number of things.”

Work out when you don’t need to.
Build skills when you don’t need to.
Eat healthy when you don’t need to.
Travel around when you don’t need to.
Build relationships when you don’t need to.
Seek better jobs when you don’t need to.
It’s too late if you wait till you need it.
