“You are brilliant, Y/N! You’re smart! You’re unique! I know you can do it! I’m a Time Lord, if I must remind you, and I know brilliance when I see it. I know you are destined for happiness and success in your little human life. You are what’s good of humanity; the compassion, and love, and the kindness. You could be like other humans and be cold, ungrateful little things. But you are not. And that’s why I believe in you. When you’re feeling lost and confused and alone, just remember that I believe in you. Now get up and be wonderful, Y/N! You will be brilliant!”
Just because you think the path that’s right for you might be lonelier, longer or less destined for traditional success than paths taken by others, don’t be afraid to take it. If you choose your means well you will end up in the right place.
For some reason when you Google “Pokito” with your internet machine, ‘SWEET POTAOTO PANCAKES AT WILLIAMSBURGS POKITO’ pops up. Like the official Google description says that. They don’t even have sweet potato pancakes tbh, but man that’s a pretty dope association. I’d love it if when people googled me it was just like, V V V handsome, charming, and destined for incredible success @ New York city’s Remington. I bet some workers on that late night shift at Google were blazed as F floating around their cubicle like Ron Weasley, adding dope snacks to the descriptions to a ton of venues. “YO BRIAN, man I really love the beef wellington @ the AMC theatre 18th street ny, ny. you feel me?” “AH MAN Greg, no way its all about the seared scallops at North Carolinas waffle house.” They work at Google yo, their munchies are high level, they don’t do funion rings like you low level programmers.
Tip: Gotta start with the yucca fries. That mayo is ⚡️⚡️ Tip: The drinks are insane here. Low key this is a legit cocktail bar. Tip: Music is amazing and the food comes up from the basement in a dumbwaiter.

Success is one word with lots of different meanings
Success is a destination and there are many ways to get there. And just as you might think of one vacation destination as your favorite and I might think of a completely different destination as my favorite, success for you might be completely different than success is to me.
The road to success is like the route you take to work each day - there’s more than one way to get there and each route takes a different amount of time to reach your destination. Comedian Chris Rock used to joke that middle-aged men aimlessly stand around at parties, discussing the routes they take to work. “I take Highway A and cut over to Main Street.” “I take Waterfront Parkway all the way into town.” “I use Highway B to avoid all of the construction. It takes me longer, but there’s less traffic.” You get the picture.
Since success is a destination, it can take you a short amount of time to get there or a long amount of time. And even if your idea of success is the same as mine, we may take different paths to get there. You may get there before me. You may experience a side of success that I do not have any desire to experience. It doesn’t matter - just because we may have arrived at different destinations at different times, we both found success.
People change over time. We all have different experiences that change our perspective. It’s not unusual (in fact it’s expected) that your own idea of success will change just as you will change over time. You may want fame and fortune at one time of your life and just want a stable way of making a living at another time.
Everyone has an opinion on what success truly is and the best way to get there, but the most important thing for you to remember is not where you’ll find success or how soon you’ll get there, but that you choose the route and the destination yourself. Don’t let people tell you their way is the only way. Their way might work for them but might not work for you.
So determine your own route and destination and go boldly in the direction of your dreams. And don’t worry about how long it will take you to get there. Just make sure you get there. Success isn’t just one destination - it’s many destinations. And there’s more than one way to get there. Let yourself dream of being there, plot your course to get there, then go find success - not where your friends think it is, not where your parents think it is, but where you know it is for you.
i don’t respect my concept teacher’s judgement in any way whatsoever so every class is basically just nodding at his critique and saying “hm yeah” then immediately cleansing my mind of everything he said it’s probably not a process destined for success
