Cute will only take you so far

There are several people I know who have lofty dreams and ambitions to take over the world (or at least the world inside their heads). There's ambition, then there's foolishness.

They believe if they're able to think of ideas, they'll come to fruition. Basically, it's The Secret for the 20-year-old set, before they realize that book is a bunch of hoo-ha. This feeling of inevitability comes to a crashing halt when their parents won't upkeep their lavish lifestyles and they end up in a dead-end office job required to pay off the bills.

What they don't understand is if they don't have anything to substantiate their dreams, they won't come true. There are people who are tops in their fields, but they only got there after many, many years of hard work and talent. Do you think they made it where they are on their appearance? Possibly, but they also needed talent to back it up.

Very few are able to make it on their appearance, alone. Using your looks to get ahead in life will only last until there's someone younger and cuter waiting in the wings (and there are several of those around every corner).

Good luck to them. They'll need it when their cuteness isn't so cute, anymore.

I think the secret is fucked up. If we all got what we wanted there would be no poverty!
