YOU believe LIFE is hard Presentation by MARK K.

YOU SHOULD believe LIFE is EASY

THE STRESS

LIFE is EASY

Sheepful Bliss

SUPER HEROS

TOP FIVE REASONS TO BE A SHEEP

#1: The feeling of FAILURE is more painful that the slight tinge of REGRET for not trying

#2: Sheepdom means lower expectations for your life, but lower stress & ZERO fear of failure

#3: Your only real job is to BE

#4: Without the SELF-LOATHING that always accompanies failed ambition, you can finally LIKE yourself

#5: If you have any REGRETS at the end of your life, they will be numbed by the morphine anyway
