Logic Of The Day: 18.07.2018.
One of the toughest realizations for me was that very few people really care about me. Apart from a core group of people, everyone else will just react with a sad face on Facebook when something bad happens. It’s a tough thing to come to terms with.
We’re so used to professors, teachers, and parents “taking us under their wing.” They take care of us. They tell us exactly what to do. All we have to do is listen to them, and we’ll be okay. Then the real world happens, and it’s a complete 180.
No one tells you what to do when it comes to the important things in life. Want to get in a good relationship? You’re on your own. Want to find work you love doing? Figure it out by yourself. Want to find a group of successful friends to surround yourself with? That’s all on you.
It’s especially true when it comes to our careers. When we feel stuck, we just sit and do nothing. We have fantasies of doing what we love, making a bunch of money, impacting people, but with no clear path to get there. It’s almost like we’re waiting for someone to come along, take us under their wing, and make it all happen for us.
But obviously that doesn’t come true. And before we know it, a decade goes by and we’re still in the same boring job, wasting our talents and feeling foolish.
Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen to you.
