It's strange & kinda funny. I can base my business around what I want to be paid hourly, but I couldn't base my business around my actual life.
Business, is now at the bottom of my list of priorities. I just feel awful knowing I'm not the only person who will experience this.
It's as if the world is always in a rush. Many college students give up half their life
to study & receive 6+ figures later on, & I do understand it might be different for each person, & that we will always need people working in certain fields. Maybe they are even happy, or really don't have anything to lose.
I kinda appreciate doctors more.
I remember dating a girl several years back who was studying to become a doctor. Her studies interfered with everything. Though she surrounded herself with other people who will be striving for that same paycheck, which is probably the best thing to do.
Just imagine finally getting out of school when you are 30 years old, you finally find a place that accepts you & you begin working. Now is when you say, "I want friends, I want a husband/Wife, I want children" your life will probably be amazing. Who really knows for sure? I'm just not risky enough to take that chance & give up a part of my life.
It really depends on the person, but I know I wouldn't be happy remembering all those times I've been invited out & refused, been too busy for a relationship, etc.
And maybe this person did manage a relationship, & has gone out to have fun? Everyone is different, but no one is ever wrong.
I can hardly explain myself, but I'm sure you guys understand.
I have a friend who wants to breakup with her boyfriend.
I thought this girl was crazy & ignorant, but now I understand.
Her boyfriend works 2-3 jobs, & he's always tired.
So I wonder, why is he working 2-3 jobs? So he can give his girlfriend the world right?
The problem with that is, he's already able to do that but he just doesn't even know it yet.
Why not live in an apartment 10 years longer before buying a house, slow life down. Live for what you have now instead of sacrificing everything because you believe it will be worth it in the end. All it is - is chance.
We all seem to forget what we really need. More money sounds comforting, but it's one bumpy ride & you might lose a few passengers.
EXAMPLE # 10000
You know how we rely on holidays to send out gifts, appreciation letters? That's what's causing these problems, everything is scheduled. I know we like it this way, because sending out gifts all the time can really eat into your wallet. But the fact is, we get lazy until a certain date on the calendar tells us what to do.
Instead of taking the woman out & being spontaneous, we'll wait for our anniversary. That's basically telling yourself & your woman that you only have one amazing day per year.
Do the same thing as you would during your anniversary, on any date that isn't a holiday. You are now living life.
That's just my opinion.
Some things cannot be avoided, & I wish everyone the best of luck.
I want to die a fat old man without a worry in the world.
