Becoming the very best is easy. If you are interested in becoming the very best, all you have to do is surrender to the intrinsic meaningless of life. Once that you have now accepted that life is completely and utterly meaningless and you are floating in a void of nothingness, begin to truly accept that you too are nothing. You are a sack of flesh and carved out bone with a complex neural system. Slowly you will escape into the comforting waves of insignificancy as you understand that the name that people use for you - the one that they shape with their lips as you respond with “what?” - is not something that you were born with. It is something that you choose for yourself. The people in traffic and at the shopping mall do not know your name. They do not know what you are feeling or who your mother is or the story of the last person that you kissed. To them you are some person in their way. Your talents and good qualities mean nothing at all. You will live and then you will die, but approximately 108 billion people have gone through with it without complaining so you can do it too.
Now that you understand the tragic and inherent loneliness of being a person, you can accept the path of giving birth to your own meaning and living life for your own enrichment. You can practice really hard at your chosen craft and revel in the fact that you are probably only “okay” and that you can always get better but right now you are transmitting all of your loveliness into making something from nothing and even if it’s ugly or clumsy you are doing something and that is “man’s search for meaning” and that is “best”. And that is how you exist “like no one ever was”.
