you need fire for success

Standard

I like to collect quotes.   So many of them are filled with nuggets of wisdom, while others are humorous.  But then there are some that I just don’t understand.   Like this one:

“Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combustion.  You must set yourself on fire.” ~ Arnold H. Glasow

Maybe that’s success for him, but personally, I don’t consider setting myself on fire to be “success”.  I reckon we just have different goals.  But since his is so strange, he shouldn’t make a broad statement like that.  But I will say this — as a hobby, setting things on fire is fun, but most experts agree that it’s typically not in your best interests to set yourself on fire.

Success for most people would probably involve inheriting or winning millions of dollars, acquiring your own private island, having all the latest technology, and sitting around eating Cheetos and playing video games all day.

  1. Success for me will be when I conquer the world, and people do my bidding. THEN I will sit around eating Cheetos and playing video games! BWAHAHAHA!

    Oh, and there may be fire involved with the conquering… but you’ll have to wait and see!
