While browsing your friends’ posts on instagram, twitter, facebook or other social media, Looking at the nice photos they uploaded, fantastic descriptions they wrote such as “family vacation at Bali, with my lovely wife/husband and two kids. <3”.
And you start to think in your mind…
“She/He is married, has kids, own house and car, and now they’re in Bali??? ok to catch up, let me find my girlfriend/boyfriend first”…….“Look at his wife/her husband. Why did my friends get all the good ones and I can only encounter jerks?”……“Wait what is the friends’ job, engineer? I remember engineer has to be on call all the time and is not allowed to take so many days of personal leave at once. “…….”And the income, is it because he/she is investing in stocks/commodities/options or else?? How did he/she earn such money and time??”
So on and so forth. That kind of voice just won’t stop. And you couldn’t help but start to think ”What’s wrong with me? I should be so much further ahead by now. Or at least being about the same place with them!” Frustration, depression and self-doubts then emerged in your mind. Especially for those of you who have been working your face off. All the non-stop efforts you put in. How come I’m so behind of others? Like, reaaaally behind behind.
Ever found yourself in this situation? Try this to help you overcome all kinds of negative emotions.
Tell yourself, you are at exactly where you need to be.
Here’s the thing, we human-beings have our own dreams. We all have our special lives that we want to live. And you know what, where we are at right now is exactly where we need to be.
Reason that we thought we’re behind others is we keeping comparing. We compare with our friends, our relatives, our colleagues, etc. We saw them getting married, buying new house, purchasing brand name car and we want to get all of the things too.
We work for the job we dislike so as to make money. We make more money to buy fancy things to show people we don’t like that we can do it too. It feels great being able to wipe off their smug faces when they saw us possessing mansion or race car.
Noticed anything? It’s all about others, not about yourself. You work at this good 9-5 job because society will rank you higher. You make money to buy more things to prove others that you can do it, and so on and so forth. But, this is YOUR life. Your one precious life. This life is too short to live someone else.
It’s time to live the life you want to live. Take the control back of your life. Want to lose weight? Go for it. Like to find your mr./mrs. Right? Chase for it. Desire to build your business? Strive for it.
Stop following what society tell you to. Yes that maybe good for others but not for you. If you are not happy at your 9-5 job, then why are you still there? Because you need to be responsible and eliminate the financial burden for yourself or your family, Because you want to provide comfy environment to your family,etc. Here, take 1 minute to look at this. It will change your life.
There are massive amount of opportunities that you can choose to achieve financial freedom without working for your 9-5 job the makes you unhappy at the moment. I personally prefer laptop style, where I can work anywhere, anytime I want while being able to do the things i want-traveling.
