I’m a big believer in learning to just accept that you have all the pieces you need, and when you are ready to start working toward your goals, you will do so. However, I also believe that when we take the next step, we are not ready for the next step, we’re just taking the first step.
In other words, we may not know what we want, but we have all the pieces we need to make the big leap. We may not be ready for the next big step, but we are still in the process of making the next step.
That’s not to say that we should never try to do what we want to do, but we have to stop and figure out what we want and if we are going to do it we have to know what we need to do. In many instances this means figuring out what to do next. For instance, say you want to make money. You know you need to start making money, but you haven’t figured out how you are going to do that.
Before you can make money you need to figure out how to do it. You don’t get rich by just sitting on a beach. You don’t get rich by sitting on a beach sipping your beer. You need to figure out what your goals are and start making the necessary steps to get to them. This is also what makes us human. We all have to figure out how we want to live the rest of our lives.
I have a friend who started out making $1,000 a month in the stock market. I think he was so broke when he started out that he spent $20,000 on only one car. I have a friend who bought a house for $150,000. I think that he planned on a life of luxury but ended up with a lot of debt. I think that he had a goal of having a nice home and a nice wardrobe, and now he has none of that.
I think most of us (at least me) have these goals, like the guy who makes 1,000 a month in the stock market. I have a friend who bought a house for 150,000. I think he planned on a life of luxury but ended up with a lot of debt. I think that he had a goal of having a nice home and a nice wardrobe, and now he has none of that.
You will probably be spending the rest of your life on the internet for nothing, and if you take it from here, as you’ve just seen, it’s not because you’re not happy. If you had done that, you wouldn’t have seen that trailer, but would have seen the trailer in the eyes of your loved ones.
We’ve talked about the concept of “the Internet” on this blog before, but greg Hoffman’s life is just a little more complicated. In 2011, he was the most followed personality on Twitter, and now his follower count has dropped to zero. He has a life on the internet, but instead of the content that makes people happy — the content that gets them online and on the Internet — it’s the content that only makes him not happy.
His life is so bad. For one thing, he has a baby daughter who isn’t nearly as happy as he is. For another, his girlfriend of eleven years went out with a much younger man recently, leaving him to look after his daughter alone. He also has to deal with his own personal issues. For one thing, he has a broken hand.
Yes, he has a broken hand, but it’s not broken like a broken bone. It appears to be a tendon issue that he’s been working on for a long time. He’s also got a whole list of other personal issues that aren’t nearly as happy as his own.
