A Redneck’s Guide to Success!

Get ready for a good laugh – This set of rules for a Redneck’s success will be certain to be uplifting and humorous. My wife (Truthoughts) and myself (OutsideMyBrain) put these together. Enjoy!

80% of success is just showing up…with a six-pack.

If you help enough other people get what they want, you’ll automatically have more people to call when you need to bail your mamma out of jail for getting into a brawl at the Piggly Wiggly.

There is nothing to fear, except having no beer.

Tough times never last, but tough rednecks do.

Two men look out the same prison bars, one sees mud,
and the other sees the truck.

The whole world steps aside for the redneck on a beer run.

We owe a lot to Jeff Foxworthy, if it weren’t for him, we’d still be called hillbillies.

Think, and grow a mullet.

Success is a state of mind. If you want to be successful, start thinking of yourself
as one of the Dukes of Hazzard.

While some people are dreaming about success –
rednecks stay up… and have a beer.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail of mud.

Progress always involves risk… you can’t steal your neighbors beer
with both hands on his sister.

Defeat is not the worst of failures.
Not to have tried (to outrun the Sheriff) is the true failure.

What would you attempt to do if you knew
that it would only cost a nickel?

The mind is like a beer can, it only works when it is open.

What lies before us, and what lies behind us are tiny matters when compared to
what lies on blocks in our backyard.

Nothing is so powerful as a redneck whose time has come.

Shoot for the moon…
even if you miss, you’re bound to hit a deer.

The past is history, the future is a mystery, today is a gift that’s why they call it…
ah, just get another beer!

Few rednecks have the strength to honor a friend’s success
without envy toward his truck.

There is no try… there’s only Git’r’dun or don’t!

  1. ‘While some people are dreaming about success –
    rednecks stay up… and have a beer.’ So do the Irish

  2. It all sounds too much like my life.

  3. When philosophy put on the suit of the irony, any comments become the needless. They would look even silly then. Therefore I can say just one – It was fine to meet you.

  4. @Dark Angel: That’s funny are you Irish or does their reputation proceed them? lol

    @towngal: lol… that’s funny! Thanks for the comment.

    @Tomas: So nicely put. I have read your comment over and over again and it still makes me chuckle. What a great way to embody this post. Thank you so much. I’m glad that you understood the humor! It’s very nice to meet you too.

  5. My dad was a professional white collar kind of guy. He guy many of his clients by showing up at the golf course with a cooler of beer. He didn’t pick up a single club. He just drove around the golf course in a golf cart and handed out beer to anyone who wanted it.

    I guess showing up with a six pack is 80% of success for more than just red necks.
