In our world today we have too much information, knowledge and opinions at our finger tips. We just have to open up our phone and everything is right there. We don’t spend enough of our time is looking within ourselves for the reasons, some would say the “why” for our search to begin with.
Let’s say you are blessed enough to have a great salary and a great job. This affords you the ability to buy nice things, such as cars, take trips, buy most everything you want, etc. And let’s say you have not saved any money for a rainy day. You know the day I am talking about. And I hope it doesn’t happen to you. But “BAM”, you make your way to work and find out you no longer have that great job.
You are now forced into a situation where you can no longer live the lifestyle you are living. And let’s just say this unemployment stint lasts up to six months. After six months you finally find another position that pays you equally as well as the previous position.
The question now becomes will you continue to live the lifestyle that you previously lived or would you now have a reason to change your habits. Instead of spending all of your money now would you instead become a better saver?
I think most peoples answer to the above scenario, would most likely be an astounding yes. The reason you become a better saver this time around is you now have the experience from what happened to you after you lost your previous job. The problem with this learned experience is that it was forced upon you. You didn’t create it. You may have learned the lesson, but it took the experience before you learned the lesson.
This is what happens in our great world today. If you are reading this, you most likely don’t want for much. Come on really, you don’t. You may not drive the car you want to drive, or have the house you exactly want. But you have a car and you have a roof over your head and you’re reading this post on a $1000 phone or laptop.
In our society today, it is hard for us to create reasons (why’s) to do something. We have too many answers. We have too much information. We have too much time on our hands. We are too comfortable for the most part.
You have to stop looking for information and start looking for reasons you should do something.
You want to lose weight: The reason you want to lose weight is so you live longer. You aren’t embarrassed by the clothes you wear. You feel comfortable looking at yourself in the mirror.
You want to earn more money: You want to quit your shitty job. You hate your boss. You want to prove everyone wrong.
You want to to invest in real estate: Not because everyone else is doing it. But because you want to retire early. You don’t want to work for the next 40 years and hopefully have a 401K that you can live off of.
Again, we are not short in todays world on information and knowledge. Nope. If you aren’t getting what you want out of your life, your career, your relationships, etc. It means you havent looked deep enough for the reasons you want those things.
If you look deep enough inside to find the real reason you want something. You will find the will, the way, the resources, to get it.
To your success and your future.
