Are you safe with the simple plan of working for 20-30 years and then retire on your 401k that you have been paying into every month and will rarely afford you with a life of your dreams. Are you holding on to your bucket list to take place when you get to 65 years of age? Do you feel like this is just the only way to get through life and maintain a relatively stable lifestyle? I don’t think you are alone here and can relate to this place of being stuck and unsatisfied in life. So, what are your options to to overcome this pain of working just to make through to the next stepping stone?
1- Question your mindset, and fears.
2- Realize you are not alone.
3- Trust that there are several ways to solve this problem and sitting around doing the same thing you have always done each week isn’t one of them.
Is it the being stuck in one company doing one position earning, working in the same field, or is it that place in your mind that stops you and says you need more, or you could do better. Regardless of any goal you seem to reward yourself with on the material level you still feel empty and want more? Just maybe for a second you might imagine yourself with the best Ferrari and a million dollar home in the right place of town. Would you then be satisfied and be financially set? What if a long time friend or co-worker got a new job that paid him more and allowed him to get a two Italian sports cars and a home in the Florida Keys as well? Would you still be satisfied or would you want to compete and strive to that next goal or material possession? The world we live in of compare and contrast really leaves us all spinning our wheels in a place of zero satisfaction and inadequacy, but it all starts with how we value what we have and what our mindset says about being good enough.
Do you ever feel that once you reach the goal you once thought to be impossible that it doesn’t bring you the satisfaction you thought it would?
