The 11 Things Life’s All About
People want to be rich without the risk , without the sacrifice, without the delayed gratification necessary to accumulate wealth. Everybody wants to have great sex and an awesome relationship — but not everyone is willing to go through the tough conversations, the awkward silences, the hurt feelings and the emotional psychodrama to get there. And so they settle.
Because happiness requires struggle. The positive is the side effect of handling the negative. You can only avoid negative experiences for so long before they come roaring back to life.
How Does Meghan Markle Make Royal Life Look So Easy?
At the core of all human behavior, our needs are more or less similar. Positive experience is easy to handle. People want an amazing physique. People want to start their own business or become financially independent.
Ease Does Not Mean Easy
People want a partner, a spouse. And to get good at dealing with negative experiences is to get good at dealing with life. Everybody wants something. And everybody wants something enough. Because if you want the benefits of something in life, you have to also want the costs.
If you want the beach body, you have to want the sweat, the soreness, the early mornings, and the hunger pangs.
If you want the yacht, you have to also want the late nights, the risky business moves, and the possibility of pissing off a person or ten thousand. If you find yourself wanting something month after month, year after year, yet nothing happens and you never come any closer to it, then maybe what you actually want is a fantasy , an idealization, an image and a false promise.
But I ask because that tells me far more about you than your desires and fantasies. Because you have to choose something. Pleasure is an easy question.
And pretty much all of us have similar answers. The more interesting question is the pain. What is the pain that you want to sustain?
That answer will actually get you somewhere. For most of my adolescence and young adulthood, I fantasized about being a musician — a rock star, in particular. Any badass guitar song I heard, I would always close my eyes and envision myself up on stage playing it to the screams of the crowd, people absolutely losing their minds to my sweet finger-noodling. This fantasy could keep me occupied for hours on end. The fantasizing continued up through college, even after I dropped out of music school and stopped playing seriously.
I was biding my time before I could invest the proper amount of time and effort into getting out there and making it work. First, I needed to finish school. Then, I needed to make money. Then, I needed to find the time.
