You aren't being paid to believe in the power of your dreams.
Unless your dreams involve making inane small talk with your coworkers, filing reports that will never be read, and sitting through interminable, pointless meanings. Then, I guess, you are being paid for that. Just not well.
Just because we accept you as you are doesn't mean we've abandoned hope you'll improve.
If you require additional affirmation, get a puppy. The rest of us are trying to work.
