What is the point of aiming for money without happiness? Big muscles, but an unhealthy liver? A sexy hot girlfriend, that doesn’t understand you? A well paying job, that you really hate? An expensive education you are not interested in? Living in Monaco, with no money? Owning a big car, but with no time to drive it?
What are you really striving at in your life? what is the short term goal here? Do you want money, happiness or both? Travels? What is it you want in you life deep down on that level we are all so terrified to go, because it all of a sudden gets to real, or doesn’t conform in a way that makes sense in the greater scheme of society? And why is it so damn hard to figure it all out?
Learn to ask the right questions before giving in to the obvious!
My Wife always ask people this one simple question to get them thinking, so I can’t take credit for it: “If you where guaranteed financial and personal success with whatever you did, during the next 365 days, what would you do?” Now once you answer that question, look at your life now, is that what you are doing?
Peel away all your layers of excuses, money, family, house, mortgage, friends, bla bla bla….. You are here on this earth ONCE, you get one chance to make a life you love, you don’t get that second chance here my friends. All of those excuses is nothing but fear. If you can’t make your life happen because of a mortgage, then sell the fuckin’ house and rent a flat!!! If your family doesn’t support your dream, then maybe it’s time for you to reevaluate your situation!!!!
The great modern philosopher Alan Watts puts it something in the lines of this: “Better to have a short life full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way.” What does he mean with this statement? Well I am quite positive he doesn’t mean go out and go crazy with drugs and cliff diving, no not at all, what he means is that you need to know yourself well enough to know what it is that makes you happy, then go out and do those things as much as you possibly can.
Make the most of everything
So go out after reading this and make the most of life, stop your self destructive patters, your playstation fix, endless online gaming or gambling, stop seeking comfort in temporary pleasures and get out and find your true purpose. Screw society, there is a bigger player here, YOU! True friends and family will support you, money will come when you least expect them to, and you WILL find your happiness, but you have to go and get it, it won’t magically fall down from the sky!
