Your Cart is Empty

It's in schools, boardrooms, street corners and everywhere else you can imagine. Not social media, not reality tv, not iPhone cameras, not boycotts, not fake or real outrage, not bots, not memes, not vegan diets, not democrats, not republicans, not independents. Those are all just the ingredients that are on display. It's the homogeneous culture in which today's society functions in (this article's thesis statement). In other word's, the rat race of life is now more predictable than ever (we can't prove that). 

This isn't necessarily a bad thing. For there are many out there that acknowledge this and try with every intention to shake the norm and create a delta in the lines of being; ultimately living a life less ordinary (deep thought, marinate on that one).

There are others that love routine and enjoy their summer trips to Paris, Vegas, or both

So what does this mean and why does it even matter? For those of us that sometimes feel stuck in line, away from our loved ones, have a poor style of dress, even poorer taste, suffer through bad relationship advice etc... it's good to get some perspective and maybe look at other ways of solving YOUR life's goals.

Retail therapy can help, but it's not the only answer. Sometimes it's just reading a really good biography on the trials and triumphs of someone you look up to. Other times it's watching a really good movie on a Sunday afternoon. This article is meant to spark some sort of reflection on oneself and in someways help you understand that this "assembly line" culture isn't for everyone, ESPECIALLY NOT FIZZM. 

Do things different, not just for the sake of it, but because it will likely bring results that you could have never imagined. Visualizing can help guide you, but it's more so the act of shaking the norm(repeating theme). 

When people do things differently, it's typically hated on at first. Insert great quote - "first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." -Gandhi.

Win, in the interpretation of this Fizzm author can be mean a whole host of things, but we'd guess he means morally. And isn't that what all of us want? To win morally and be happy with the people we are and to look as fly as possible in this new Prada jacket. A cheap plug fine, but form follows function and when you stay fly, you don't have to get fly.

Please refer to Gucci Mane to expound on his interpretation of Sauce to fully understand our point here.
