Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty, is the a**hole we all wished we could be. He gets sh*t done and lives life on his terms. Here are some ways to develop your inner-Rick.
1. Be Unapologetic
Rick Sanchez gives ZERO f**ks about what anyone thinks of him, because deep down he knows he is freaking awesome. He can see that most of what others have to say is based on their own insecurities. Plus the real flaws he has, he embraces them unapologetically. Here are a few steps to get you started:
- Be confident in yourself
- Ask yourself: Does this person’s opinion of me really f**king matter?
- Surround yourself with supportive people
2. Be a Genius
Rick is a genius. Like, he can create portals to different universes and stuff. So, like, don’t be an idiot. Boost your brain up or something, bruh.
- Study your craft
- Do brain-teasing exercies
- Develop your intuition
3. Be a little selfish
Rick puts first things first, namely himself. He knows that he is so awesome that if he doesn’t take care of his interests, the whole world could fall apart. Typically, when he gets it his way, it ends up being in the best interest of others, anyway.
- Practice saying no
- life is short so have a little fun
- If it doesn’t benefit you, then just don’t f**king do it
4. Don’t be a Sheep
Mr. Sanchez is an independent thinker. He questions everything and doesn’t let feelings get in the way of logic. As a result, Rick is very hard to fool.
- Do your own research
- Question everything
- If something doesn’t make sense, address it
- Don’t pretend you know everything, be honest
5. Don’t get too attached to anyone
Rick doesn’t waste time with petty feelings. At the end of the day, we will all die alone, so why get so caught up? He simply focuses on his passion for science, because he loves it. If you don’t like that, then get out of his life.
- Set boundaries with others
- Be unapologetically yourself
- If people cant handle your awesomeness, kick em to the curb
6. Be open-minded
Rick Sanchez is not constrained by tradition, societal norms or others’ opinions, making him very open-minded. When watching Rick and Morty, you will see that he is sexually fluid and unrepressed. He is willing to look at all the possibilities when solving certain problems, which has given him access to things unimaginable in our boring world.
- Embrace the unknown
- Don’t knock it before you try it
- Look at problems from multiple perspectives
- Educate yourself
7. Be Confident
Rick is not short on confidence. He takes pride in his intelligence and achievements. Even when things look grim, Rick, still expects to succeed in the end.
- Recognize your strengths
- Expect success
- Spend time developing skills and hobbies
8. Be a Cynic
Rick recognizes all the bullsh*t in life: everyone is basically selfish, people can be cruel, politicians lie, people are blind followers, etc. Being a cynic seems to free Rick, from getting too attached. Rick has very low expectations of humanity, so he is rarely ever disappointed. If he cant enjoy the positives, at least he can enjoy being right!
- Doubt others’ motives
- Recognize all your fustrations
- Speak your mind
9. Have fun
Rick stops to enjoy life. He starts a party. Rick is the party. So have some fun, man, life is short!
