This is the fourth installment in my Developing The Disaster Master Mind© series.  I?m praying that you are well on your way to a completely screwed up life after just reading and obeying the first three of the 10 habits of the Decidedly Defective People©.  If success is still looking like it might attach itself to you, do not despair, stay the course and chaos can be yours, too.  Be patient, as fiascos take time and demand dedication in order to set in motion the forces for failure; therefore, be vigilant and the repugnant life will be yours before you know it.

With habit one (Be a Slacker©), habit two (Blame Others©) and habit three (Embrace Hopelessness©) under your belt, let me further your farcical existence by establishing within your smelly psyche habit four, Follow Others Mindlessly©.

To eschew achievement, which is your goal, you must flee from all the traits that make one great.  Duh.  Some of the qualities that make people great are: leading thoughtfully, being independent thinkers, having a well-tuned moral compass, being persons of conviction and not convenience and being very comfortable with opposing what others are robotically doing.  Yes, the successful ones got to this place of personal prosperity by self-determined deliberation?which is totally taboo for those trying to attract atrocities. 

Developing wisdom, knowledge and understanding that leads to independent thinking is hard work, and hard work is antithetical to your desires for doom.  Only through sweat do the successful get the ability to solidly free think against the grain?and since you are devoted to disaster and immediate gratification, developing the powers necessary for sound judgment simply is not on your to-do list.  You, you loser you, would rather take the path of least resistance and cruise on the flotsam and jetsam of a jaded, jacked-up culture, and that is why you Follow Others Mindlessly©.
