Chelsea Fagan over at The Financial Diet has this great post about motivational quotes she regrets listening to because generally they’re pretty awful advice for young people to follow. Which got me to thinking about the ones I hate most:

“Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.”

Sometimes you gotta plan shit out, thems the rules.

“Love will come when you stop looking.”

I don’t even know where to begin with this one.

“Everything happens for a reason.”

And sometimes the reason is that life doesn’t need to give you a reason.

Which cliches drive you crazy, and can we just replace them all with 2 Chainz lyrics?
