Bobby, how should I become happier...? I have unrealistic dreams and when they don't work out I get depressed.. I need to be happy to actually make progress.. Thanks!
Well, if there’s one thing all the world’s major religions and belief systems and feel-good Oscar movies adhere to - is that true happiness comes from serving others. So you’re asking the wrong question: “How can I be happier?” instead of “How can I make everyone else happier?”
If your idea of joy and success is derived from wealth, a boyfriend or girlfriend, or fame, you’ll never achieve it. These are all self-serving ideas and will only make you hungrier and greedier. But if you change your focus to contributing to the world in some positive way, trying to make it a better or more beautiful place - whether through art or music or Streetwear, even - then you’ll find happiness there.
Money, power, and respect are loaded with gifts and curses. Philanthropy, on the other hand, breeds only happiness and peace. Giving is getting.
Hey bobby, about 3 months ago I just started to wear the hundreds. But before all of that I would and still follow you as an artist, photographer, writer and business owner. I just wanted to say that you're an inspiration to myself because of how knowledgeable you are and absolutely creative you can be. Thank you for your inspiration and daily motivation to keep shooting for your dreams no matter what may come my way. Best wishes bro.
Thanks man!!! People over product always. Support and buy The Hundreds if you can relate and connect to us as human beings, not because of Hype or Trend. Welcome to the family!
have you ever felt down to where you didn't know what to do, where to go, or who to talk to? Have you ever felt where the bricks were stacked up against you? What did you do to overcome that, get through it? What inspired you in the worst of times.
I just think life is a solo mission. Sure, there’s family and friends and your community. There’s the larger world at play. But at the end of the day, it’s on you. You come into this world alone and you leave dolo. So it’s on you. You’re stronger than you think, bigger than you realize, more influential than you can imagine. God helps those who help themselves, right? Inspiration begins with “I.” (I think I just made that up)
How can I make my day to day life better?
Silence. Friends. Mexican food. Mexican beer. Skating and surfing and snowboarding. I didn’t say “or.” Literature. Social causes. Children. Grandparents. Thanking your parents or forgiving them. Supporting the arts. Stephen Wright and Mitch Hedberg and Tig Notaro. Woody Allen movies. Toast with avocado slices and chili flakes for breakfast. Anything with a deep red wine for dinner. Religion or spirituality (or whatever it’s called today), and knowing why you believe it or why you choose not to. Rumi. Photography. Early to bed, early to rise (Yes, I understand how impossible that is). Listening to music from the ’90s (mainstream, indie, and everything in between). Traveling everywhere. Realizing it’s all in your control. Realizing that control is about letting go. So, rolling with the punches. Love. Laugh. Laugh as much as you can. Laugh to the point where everything else I said falls into place.
