If someone was to offer you the path to success, you’d take it, right?
Most certainly claim they would, yet in reality that’s a lie.
You see the route you’d need to take is not sexy, nor is it fun or rewarding in the short term, heck it’s not even rewarding in the long term.
Not even in the long term?
Nope, not in the way you think.
You see it will take you at least 10 years in any industry/field to realise you weren’t ‘the shit’ and you were in fact just ‘shit’ 😂
At this point you’re now kinda component at what you do.
From here on out you’ll think it’s all smooth sailing, until you realise another 10 years has gone by and you realise that ‘kinda component’ was still pretty green.
Tha being said, you’ll have picked up a lot of knowledge along the way and since you will have paid your dues in more ways than one you’ll be rewarded with opportunity.
Much like you will find has already happened, you just didn’t notice it.
All the time you felt hard done by were still opportunities given to you, and the one you wanted because you felt you deserved it went to someone who was in the place you now are and had paid more dues than you up to that point.
Many people don’t like this, they feel it’s unfair.
That my friends is the attitude of the ignorant and the arrogant.
Unless you’re some kind of prodigy (which is highly unlikely otherwise you’d be out doing whatever it is prodigies do) you will have to dedicate several lifetimes to the cause.
This is where fairness and equality are nice ideas, however if all is fair it’s not equal and if all is equal it’s not fair.
Too many expect the world to fall at their feet.
Why should it though?
What have you actually got to offer that is of value or that extends beyond your own ego and is truly for others?
Of course there is nothing wrong with looking out for number 1, that’s just good survival instincts.
Just remember that you’ll come across many people that have looked after No1 for long enough and now they can give something back to someone who happened to be like them in their youth, and that someone might just be you.
Their gift won’t be what you think it is though.
It will seem like it’s less than you deserve and the tis what makes it exactly what you deserve.
Someone will be willing to give you the cheat sheet of life.
In fact it will help you save in total about 10 years worth of struggle so that you can climb higher than they did because they now realise that people like you are now more important than their bank balance.
Of course you’ll ignore this wonderful gift because as the technical terms describes it; you’re an idiot.
It’s okay though, I’ve been that idiot more times than I care to admit so you’re not alone.
The next time someone offers you any of the above you’d do well to accept their gift with open arms, especially if you feel it’s less than you deserve because it will be precisely what you need.
Once you no longer have a positive or negative feeling towards what gifts you’re given you will have found Elysium.
Remember, emotion is bound to ego.
^^ That’s a topic for another day though.
In the meantime you should investigate the above thoroughly.
