“I’m very proud of my rack and my rump,” says beautiful Darla. “I also like fine art and high culture. One of my favorite shows was always the one with that rich loud guy going on about the rich and famous and how they lived. I’ve always dreamed of being rich, and one day, I hope to make it. I know that the fastest way for me to achieve success is through my natural assets. I’m very proud of the figure I’ve got, and I put in a lot of hard work to maintain that figure. I think your mental attitude makes all the difference when it comes to whether you achieve your goals in life, and I also think you’ve got to work on your goals actively if you really want to accomplish anything rather than simply daydreaming about it. I realize I have a long way to go myself, but I think you’ve got to at least acknowledge that this is the case or you can’t move ahead.”
Darla has always loved documentaries about the homes of the rich and famous. She loves the idea that one day, if you work hard enough, such an incredible place to live, containing everything you’ve ever dreamed about owning, can one day become yours. She believes this is a dream come true, but when it comes to how to get there, she thinks there are a lot of people who look at being rich as some kind of lottery win, something that just happens to you. She says she disagrees with all the jealousy she sees out there when it comes to people who have achieved success in life. It’s naturally to be at least a little jealous of people who have more than you, she admits, but she thinks that we could all solve more of our problems if we focused less on what other people have, and more on what we ourselves have and need to accomplish.
Darla goes on, “I understand why some people feel that way, and that’s understandable. But I believe that getting rich is, for the most part, something you earn, something you work really hard to get. It may not be as simple as those novels people used to write about the poor guy who hits the American Dream and suddenly becomes a rich man. What were they called? Horatio Alger, something like that. It may not be quite that storybook simple. But I do think that most of the people who are wealthy had to work really hard to get that way. Sure, there are some lazy bastards out there. The rich kids of Instagram come to mind. These are rich kids, the children of very wealthy families, who have lots of money because they have lavish allowances or trust funds or just parents who buy them anything they want. They’ve become famous because they go onto Instagram and post obnoxious photos showing off how rich they are, and of course they’re arrogant about it, and everybody knows that somebody that young hasn’t done anything to earn the money, so we resent their attitudes and the life of ease they have that has made them such spoiled little brats. But people like that are the exception. Sure, it takes money to make money, and if you inherit a nice nest egg, chances are good you can build that up into a profitable business. But even in a case like that, there is effort involved. There is work you have to do to make your money. People who are very wealthy, by and large, really worked hard to get where they are. I respect that kind of work. I respect how they chose a goal and pursued it with single-minded focus to get where they wanted to be in life.”
“I don’t think you can pursue any goal in life,” Darla says, “unless you set that goal and go after it with everything you’ve got. That may sound pretty simple, but I don’t think it actually is. I’ve got dreams, you know. I have such big dreams, and I’m working on them, but it takes so long to get there. You can’t expect to make any progress on something like that unless you can really define it ahead of time. In order to make something of yourself, in order to get somewhere in life, you first have to say what your dreams are going to be, sure, but then you have to analyze the actual goals that will get you to that point. You can’t just say that you want stuff. You have to have a plan and you have to execute that plan. In the absence of any of that, without that structure, why, you’re just spinning your wheels. There’s no point then.”
