The truth is that life isn’t always fun, easy, and happy – no matter how much we achieve. Take a deep breath and repeat after me…
Do you remember that book you read that you were certain would change your life? It outlined the “secret” to happiness, washboard abs, 6-figure passive income, better relationship with your kids, etc.
We all (including atheists) practice some form of faith.
After practicing for years, one thing is certain… few things bring me more peace than silently observing the moment.
But no matter what that blog promises there’s no such thing as eliminating your debt, getting a million Twitter followers, or losing 100 lbs. in 3 “easy” steps.
I’ll be satisfied as soon as I… get promoted, sell my business, pay off the vacation home, etc. As you know by now, this never works.
Micromanaging every facet of life might make you feel better in the short term, but it always leads to a truckload of anxiety.
Comparison might feel like the best way to measure success – but it’s almost always the worst. There’s a better way.
There was a time when you couldn’t be reached every second of the day, nor would you work for several hours after putting the kids to bed.
Before trying to dig in and “win” an argument, there is a different approach that will serve you (and your relationship with that person) better.
