On the final night of the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brian he said,
“Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.”
Damn, Conan has got this shit figured out!
He had worked his butt off for years waiting for an opportunity to host the Tonight Show. In a letter to the “people of earth” he stated:
“I want to start by making it clear that no one should waste a second feeling sorry for me. For 17 years, I’ve been getting paid to do what I love most and, in a world with real problems, I’ve been absurdly lucky.”
One of the best ways to deal with your problems is to put them in perspective. He spent 17 years on television, something a lot of people would be thrilled with. So he loses the show he had always wanted to host – he still got to host it. Besides, there is always work for Conan. What does he have to be sad or upset about?
