Pep rallies have always been beacons of hope; a chance to gather the troops and rile their spirits with chants of “Go Team Go!!!”.
Pet talks are used in the same way, but on a much more individual basis with words of encouragement like, “if at first you don’t succeed; try, try again”, and “when you get knocked down, dust yourself off and get back up”.
But we’re all adults here on the internet, or at least claim to be; so it’s time that you finally get a pep talk that fits the gritty reality of the harsh world that you truly live in.
Let me start by sharing with you what any self-respecting NASCAR driver will tell you to be fact; “if you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying”; and allow me to finish by quoting Aziz Ansari’s chubby little cousin Harris, “life’s a dirty game, you gotta play dirty to win it”.
So get out there and keep scrapping until your on top, and once you get there be sure to remember the immortal words of The Nature Boy Rick Flair, “To be the man, you’ve gotta beat the man”.
