The point of doing anything is the end result of personal satisfaction, apparently.
For me, however, not everything seems to satisfy me and instead, satisfies the needs of others around me for what only appears to be a short term basis before they begin to degrade my response. My situation isn’t unique. Personally, I’d describe it like a series of steps. I share a particular step with a few, or on a larger scale of thing, a lot of people. Each of us have our own agenda, our own ambitions and ultimately, we are all different people. My person, or the person within me, is not only looking up at the next step and figuring out how I can get there, but also looking at the step below and lending that helping hand to those who need it.
I don’t mind taking this approach, but then you find yourself being used. A target to some extent and well, if someone isn’t capable of thinking on their own and will do nothing but condemn any advice from anyone, what can you do?
On my own, it felt, I pursued my ambitions and worked harder. I trained myself and sought advice and developed myself into someone capable of making that next level. Once I had my feet firmly there, I looked down. I sat with my feet dangling over the previous step and took a long deep breath.
Now that I have climbed that step, I have a new agenda.
Taking this out of the metaphor makes me sound mean, nasty and self righteous. Perhaps even egotistic, however to lose the weight dragging me down has been great and only ever since have I really proven who I am and what I’m doing.
I dared myself and took the chance in removing a source of demotivation only a week ago and now? Well apart from that in itself not being noticed amongst my peers, but my happiness levels have been picked up straight away.
Get yourself off tedious Facebook groups and get some work done. It pays off.
