In a society we live in today, we can really create a blurred vision of what our reality is and what we are actually perceiving through our mind and body. In a generation that is very focused on instant gratification, monetary value and pleasure, we start to really derail ourselves from what is actually important for long term benefit and growth. As humans, we want things instantly. It seems to make us happy in that sense. But, imagine living a life where everything was handed to you and you never faced adversity nor hardship in your life. Our psychological mind will not receive any benefit of experiencing emotions like fear, anger, depression and even anxiety. Without experiencing these senses it will lead to lack of growth and trying to expand our brain plasticity. Which is known for developing growth within the brain.
If we are on a constant search for pleasure, instant gratification and monetary value, we will never be satisfied. We will continue searching for more and more and when we don't have those things it will put us in a continuous state of dissatisfaction and we will be looking for others appraisals to feed this ego we have when we don't have those three things. Being apart of a journey like this will eventually lead us to decrease our self esteem and self confidence. I think those are one of the most important characteristics a human can have. Without those, we wouldn't do anything except feed on our friends and families energy. We would become a leach literally sucking blood pushing others away, which could lead to lonely-less and permanent solitude.
As human beings we develop our perception on how we view our life and where we are on a daily basis. This outlook will determine how we feel emotionally towards are goals. If we are working towards something on a daily basis and things for some reason aren't seeming to progress in a specific area, our natural nature is to blame the outer circumstance and not our self. We actually put on a facade in our mind of where we are in order make us feel better. We go hang out with our friends and family and they ask how we are doing and we say great. They ask specific questions about the business or goal and you lie. Sometimes this lie effects our psychological mind of how we perceive things in our own life. If we continue to lie to others, we are internally lying to our self. This lie makes you feel good every time you say it and this lie starts to craft itself into your life. You stop trying to fix what’s wrong, you stop trying to grow and learn. You stop trying to evaluate and reflect. This becomes a negative feeding spiral effect. You are feeding the beast, which is lie that makes you feel good. If you continue to approach life in this manner, you will allow this lie to become who you are. Ten years later you'll still feel good, but once you finally come to the realization that you haven't actually arrived, you wont. It didn't effect you then, but trust me it will affect you at that point.
Let’s take our mind and re-calibrate it. Let’s focus on self-mastery and how to become the best version we can be as a human being. We are all born in different circumstances in life. Some of us are broke, middle class or rich. Forget all of that. Let’s take a look at our inner self. Our circumstances don't need to dictate who we are or what we think about. True happiness comes from continuous growth and progress within our philosophy on health, life, relationships, physiology and psychology. No longer will we compare ourselves to others. From now on we will focus on building solid relationships, self actualization, financial independence, health, energy and our philosophy.
