The fastest way to glory

October 30, 2009

“How much is that super-Pro tennis racket?”

“Is this the same guitar brand used by Eric Clapton?”

“So this car is better than the M5?”

“You sure this bike was used Carlos Sastre used to win Tour de France last year?”

All these questions have one thing in common. They’ve been asked by newbies all over who want to take a short cut to glory by buying the best equipment money can buy.

Have kick-ass equipment, will rock.

And actually, despite the naysayers you do rock. People love you because you got the money to buy a $20,000 bicycle or because you give them funny stories to tell at the bar.

Here’s one funny story (see, its working already. lol.) I had a classmate in California who bought a brand new Corvette car in his senior year. Everyone went “Wooo…” I had a chance to take a ride out with him and yup, he drove like a pussy. The only vehicles that didn’t overtake him on the freeway were heavy trucks and a few pickups that were carrying illegal Mexican workers. But it didn’t matter because it certainly caught a few ladies’ attention. At the end of the day, that’s what its all about. 😛

You know why equipment is so important? Because we all need an outside object to pin our egos and frustration on. We buy something big to compensate for something small (and no, I’m not necessarily talking about that something.) But its how it works. Have right brand of squash racket, got ticket to the big boys table. Have road race to lose, got car to blame. Its stupid yeah, but it serves a need.

Bottom line? You might not know it but sometimes, what you buy says a lot more about you than you think.

Have a good weekend folks.

    Fastest way to glory seems like the same road to the poor-house… one wrong turn and that’s it.

    Yeah, absolutely. You can buy a PhD from a diploma mill and when you’re busted, it could be the end of your career.
