Logic Of The Day: 29.05.2018.
Sometimes you sit down somewhere — maybe in a coffee shop, at the office, or in front of your TV — and out of nowhere, a thought pops up in your mind: “Why am I not farther in life than now?”
Maybe you thought you’d have kids by now. A business that would make a lot of money. Or that you were a well-respected person that makes a difference in the world.
Maybe you thought you’d own a house by now. And that you had everything figured out. But none of that shit has happened.
In those moments, it’s easy to panic — especially if you look around you. It’s easy to look at others and compare your own path to theirs. But why are we so obsessed with timing?
“This guy was a millionaire by 30.”
“She had her first bestseller by 26.”
“He became CEO at 40.”
Who cares? They are not you. But still, it stings, right? “Why not me?” you might think.
Everyone has their own path. I know, that sounds corny. But you know what’s also corny? Being an unhappy person. Because that’s what happens when you try to control your future.
Every time you feel that your life is not the way it SHOULD be, you’re trying to play God.
