First of all one must define what winning means to them, and if your satisfied continue reading. Winning for me, means first making sure the ladies are happy and healthy, secondly making a lot of money (which I have been doing lately, see tradingstocksjournal.com https://tradingstocksjournal.com/ ) for the ladies, thirdly taking care of my mind, body and soul, and finally tending to my art, which at this current time is centered around music.
Now here is the difference between ordinary folks and those that are successful, and or the difference between those that win vs those that lose. Now when I say lose I’m not saying that if your not a winner that your a loser, but instead that your not winner, and thus you will be relegated to the life of ordinary, which if your sane and healthy is not a bad thing, in fact it’s pretty cool, being ordinary is a relief, it’s an easier course.
So I bought a pair of ordinary, nondescript “Dr Martins” leather shoes on Christmas eve because I need something other than my Nike tennies when I go out, which I never do, so what the fuck. It was Christmas eve. I had already walked a few miles from Hollywood up Sunset boulevard when I came across the shoe store. I looked in and saw the shoes that I would like to wear, tried them on and walked out with them on, after paying of course, and continued my journey home to downtown Los Angeles where I dwell, on a lot sit. I was about another mile before I would reach my destination. After just three blocks I could feel the right shoe starting to cut into heel, fuck. Another hundred yards or so the left shoes was starting to cut me up as well. I considered turning around and returning the shoes, but I really liked the shoes and despite them cutting me up, they were a good fit. I also considered taking the Dr Martins off and putting my tennis shoes back on for the duration of the hike, but decided against it because I was like, these are my new shoes, and it’s Christmas eve, and I want to look good. My father had told me many times when I was growing up that “it hurts to be beautiful” so hey, this is part of the process, I wanna, and I’m gonna look good. By the time I reached Fleming’s Steakhouse at 3:30 ish in the afternoon, my socks were a bloody mess, but I did not let that stop me from having a good time, and I great time I did have. Everyone was happy, and everyone was buying me drinks, what’s up with that, I was the life of the party, don’t ask me, the bartender said he was sorry to see me leave. After leaving Fleming’s I went home, dropped off my guitar, and went back out to see what more fun I could get into, with my Dr Martins on, bloody socks and all.
The next day there was a stiff price to pay, my cut up feet could get no relief, not while wearing my usually perfectly comfortable Nike’s and not even when I went to sleep at night because when ever my feet touched the sheet it stung. This went of for a few days. I told my mother, and my wife about the shoes and how they cut me up, and they both insisted that I take them back, but I said “no way, I’m gonna break these shoes in if it’s the last thing I do. It’s been almost three weeks since I bought the shoes and I have started wearing them around my apartment, and on short walks to the coffee shop, and to the grocery store, and today I can report with a smile that the shoes no longer hurt and in fact they are as comfortable as I thought when I first tried them on in the store. And that is the difference between the ordinary and those that are extraordinary, the extraordinary don’t quit if they deem what it is they are fighting for is worth it, and these Dr Martins shoes were worth it. Pay me Dr Martins.
My music is no different than those Dr. Martins, it’s been worth the journey, I’m not where I want to be at my final destination, but the progress has been worth every minute. And it’s like this with all things worth having. No pain, no gain, it’s more than a cliche I promise, it’s the truth.
Dr Martins shoes go great when paired with pants from nomads coat https://nomadscoat.com/ . Speaking of Nomads Coat, I’m currently trading stocks in order to save some money so that I can start that I can get that company going again, though right now I already have enough on my plate for one man. But if I can save some bread, I will be able to hire an assistant, and that will be enough to get things moving again. All the research and development has been done, so all I need now is a few extra buckskies.
