It's the taleas Achievement Demotivational Poster print, woo!

Based on Comic #70: Achievement Demotivational Poster

A poster with a stick figure standing on top of a very tall mountain. Two taller mountains overshadow the very tall mountain. The stick figure exclaims, "Seriously?!". "Achievement: Sometimes it's better to just lower your standards."

The Story

I print all taleas posters on high quality, photo paper. This paper is much thicker than regular, and takes color much better than regular poster paper.

The Story Behind #70: Achievement Demotivational Poster

Everyone wants to be a millionaire. Everyone wants to climb the highest mountain or make the biggest sale or ride the largest wave. Our culture is full of people who are reaching for the stars and, consequently, overreaching. Why not take pride in climbing the second-highest mountain? Why not boast about having a big — but not the biggest — sale? Why do we have to be the best at everything instead of one of the best?

Not everyone is going to be the next Mark Zuckerberg or Elon Musk. There is a chance that the tech start-up you’re creating won’t take off like Facebook or Space X. And that is okay! That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. It just means you should keep your expectations in check and be proud of any accomplishment, even if it doesn’t change the world. Our history is packed full of countless people who have made great progress without being the biggest and best. Do what you can and do you best and don’t judge your success based on others’ accomplishments.

Far too many people based their achievements solely on others and, let's be honest, that's the best way to let yourself down. No matter how much success you find, there will always be someone else who seems to be doing better than you. That's why John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were rivals...and Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla...and Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

What should you base your success on: the amount of money you made? The number of rivals you surpassed? The golden plaques on the wall? No, in the end achievement and success should be quantified by how hard you tried and how determined you were. For that reason, the guy who only made it halfway up Everest should feel just as accomplished as the one who planted a flag at the peak.

The Story Behind taleas Demotivational Posters

We have all seen motivational posters in a number of places. From bedrooms to classrooms to offices, it seems that everyone needs some motivation at times.

There is nothing wrong with that, sure enough, those posters of the cat "hanging in there" have helped a lot of people over the years. But sometimes you need something that is a bit more direct and frank. Sometimes you need something like the Taleas demotivational poster.

As you know, traditional motivational posters typically use white frames and black backgrounds with a centered inspirational image that is generally about teamwork making the dream work or practicing patience and endurance. That's not quite the route I took. Mockingly, demotivational posters use the same light on black format with either an ironic image and sarcastic caption or an inspirational image with a sarcastic caption. In keeping with the usual whimsical and cartoony Taleas style, I have decided to create a collection of cute, funny, sarcastic, and light demotivational posters in my own style. While it's a very stark departure from the expected format I feel like it presents the dark and sarcastic tones in a more lighthearted manner.

And who knows, maybe these can motivate you like the others. Sure, they don't have the same gentle, soft phrasing as traditional motivational posters but that doesn't mean they don't carry the same power. Sometimes you need swift kick in the rear end to get moving and sometimes you need a cynical and sarcastic point of view to put the world into perspective. That's exactly what you'll get with these demotivtional posters.
