From The Desk Of Dr.Shapiro: "Needs Vs Wants"

One of my friends stopped by yesterday to peep some #vintagesunglasses. We shot the shit for a minute. I asked him how everything was going, he replied "I got all I NEED, now it's time to get all I WANT". NEEDS and WANTS are two very different things. Certain things are necessary for survival, others are #luxury. When I was growing up I lived amongst a rather confused crowd of individuals. Their parents mislead them to believe that WANTS and NEEDS were the same thing. For example, some of these #rich kids wouldn't wear their shoes unless they were #airjordans. These mother fuckers would rather be barefoot, then wear something that wasn't " #designer ". #Shoes are a NEED, #nike #sneakers are a WANT. When it came to Macaroni & Cheese at #lunch, they wouldn't eat it unless it was "Kraft". Food is NEED, "branded" food is a WANT. These mother fuckers would rather starve then eat something they didn't recognize by brand. I NEED a car to take my son to school. I WANT a #delorean to drive. Only until I was able to satisfy the NEED, was it appropriate to attain the WANT. Sometimes no matter what your status in life it is time to backup, stop, and review. Life is a lot more rewarding when you are able to clearly distinguish between a WANT and a NEED. It's #tuesday and I worked hard to get everything I NEED, now the fucking reward is to go after everything I WANT. Don't be one of those people who drive a #rollsroyce but secretly live in it too. Planning is essential in life. Outlining your NEEDS and WANTS will help you accomplish your goals quicker. Outline what it takes to get by, then what you WANT to be fly. If you one of those dummies that won't eat the "mac" because you waiting for that "KD", I'm that dude that would let you starve. #morninginspiration #vintageframes
