Whatever I Wish To Be
Greg will once in a while make a social media status using this phrase. He even scatters it across the web as a description for sites he does not use regularly like SoundCloud, Google +, and WordPress. He will also say it in videos, sometimes to stand his ground or to encourage his audience.
Greg explains: "Whatever I wish to be is a dreamer's statement. It is someone who's being oppressed saying that if we want to be something that everyone tells us we can't be, well god damn it, we can be it. It's to give us hope, to give us reason. To give us a future." ($ource)
Law Of Attraction$ource)
It seems Greg had been practicing the law of attraction all the way back in 2008. On a February 2008 blog post, he wrote a message to the universe projecting what he hoped to be his fate. He also wrote phrases such as eternal youth, wealth, and mass recognition on an image of him and his then wife Skye. He also photoshopped one million dollar bills around him and in his hand. Under that, he pasted an image of a one million dollar bill with "Onision" written on it. (Source)
At one point, Greg seemed to dislike the idea of the law of attraction. In a 2010 speaks video titled "The Law of Attraction", he critisizes the concept and points out many flaws he believes it has. ($ource)
Reaction to Criticism
On March 5, 2010, Greg uploaded "Whatever I Wish To Be" to his Speaks channel. He says he is shocked at the "incredible lack in logic" of his viewers. He says they were abusing and mocking the phrase "whatever I wish to be" by saying they could be rapists, murders, or a bird. He tells them to unsubscribe. ($ource)
