Sponge Bob Success Pants

Sponge Bob Success Pants?!

Captain: Are you ready kids?

Kids: Aye-aye Captain.
Captain: I can't hear you...
Kids: Aye-Aye Captain!!
Captain: Oh! Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
Kids: SpongeBob SquarePants!
Captain: Absorbent and yellow and porous is he!
Kids: SpongeBob SquarePants!
Captain: If nautical nonsense be something you wish...
Kids: SpongeBob SquarePants!
Captain: Then drop on the deck and flop like a fish!
Kids: SpongeBob SquarePants!
Captain: Ready?
EveryBody: SpongeBob SquarePants! SpongeBob SquarePants! SpongeBob SquarePants!
Captain: SpongeBob.... SquarePants! Haha.

So here it is, how in the heck is this naive yellow fluffy friend so spongefully successful in all of his adventures?
Easy!  Sponge Bob has absolutely no doubt in himself.  He does not question his ability to conqure any challenge. He sets out to do, and he does.  He is known to be silly and perhaps not the smartest sponge under the sea but his absense of worry is his key to success in whatever challenge that is presented.
He has been in school learning to drive for HOW LONG?  He does not care, keeps going, keeps doing, keeps going, keeps doing... Does he get into mischief with Patrick, the so NOT glowing star?  Sure thing, think of it this way, Sponge Bob has reached for and caught his star already...
He is as happy as can be doing whatever it is he does on his daily adventures... Out to catch jellyfish?  He gets them.  Out to sell a bunch of burgers?  He sells them.  Challenged to sell a bunch of chocolate bars? He sells them.  Sets out to find Mr. Crabs missing Dollar?  He gets it.  Off on a long adventure to reclaim the crown of the sea?  He finds it.
No matter what it is, be it skill or dumb luck, his persistance pays and he reaches all of his goals.  Makes one think that sometimes there is too much "thinking" going on making the mind fuzzy full of all the 'what ifs' and 'self doubts'.... How about living a day in the NOW, step into your spongy splendidness and do like Sponge Bob!   LA LA LA LA all the way home!
Sponge Bob knows he won't get from Rock Bottom to Bikini Bottom unless he takes all the steps in between... Now you go make like a sponge and DO it!
