REMINDERS for all 24 - 44 year olds!
You don’t and can’t have to prove to everybody. Focus on being kind and helpful than being right.
You want to dream
When you don’t know exactly what to pursuit, the decision can be as simple as deciding in between chocolate ice cream or vanilla ice cream.
Unless you do something you don’t even know what the right decision is anyway. So do it all.
You have a hard time handling rejections
Everyone else sucks too. You just gotta find your market fit. You are not better than you really are or worse than you really are.
Rejections don’t change your value.
There is a market for used underwear in japan. What does this mean? - It means that everything is interesting by someone. You just need to find the group of people who finds what you offer interesting.
And even those who rejected you, they struggle the same fucking fear. They are afraid of being rejected too!!!!! - They suck too!!!!
It’s just context. The same people who rejected you can accept you in another situation and the same people who accepted you can also reject you in another.
You want to live your life in your own term
Do it! It’s more practical to make the tough jumps in the early age, psychologically and physiologically. Like people can start at any age, (Having responsibility doesn’t have to be a reason for someone to stop someone from trying but,) when you don’t have the responsibility, it simply makes it more practical and easy to take risks.
You want to make a lot of money for no particular reason
I think you should go out and try doing that. You might like it, you might not. We don’t know unless you do it, but one thing I’ve learned is that it’s really hard to pursuit a dream for money, and only for the money for either perseverance or mental happiness reason. The better approach I found is to make ‘enough’ that compromise your ambition and satisfy your happiness.
If you are starting a company. You want to change your career:
Trying to find what you want in your life in a real heavy way for the first time
Self awareness can be such a strong weapon for life and happiness. Asking yourself the hard questions might be difficult in the moment but the consequence of not asking them comes with a bigger cost later.
The decision can be simple and easy, as easy as choosing between a candy or a chocolate to get a sense of what it is like to pursuit what you want.
The most important thing is to never give up in the search. Don’t judge yourself when you make mistakes because failures actually give you more insights than successes.
I can't start because I don't have the right information, strategy or a mentor
Consciously look out for the information that can benefit you. Today, we have the internet and we have no excuse.
We can have access to our mentors digitally which was not available just within 20 years ago. So don’t let ‘not having the right mentor’ or ‘the right kind of information’ be the reason for you to stop.
Guys! The world is changing! It is changing everyday if you like it or not. The knowledge you want to rely on from older people hence, can be easily outdated anyway.
Whatever happens in your life happens. You can’t and shouldn’t prevent the failures you are supposed to experience because in the end of the day, you are not missing anything out by not listening to someone you look up to. There is no right answer but there is only YOUR answer.
You don't know what happiness is
There is no one answer that I can tell you that I assume should be everyone’s answer. All answers can be unique.
One thing I know is that people feel happy when they make progress to become who they want to become which actually has nothing to do directly with money. Things don’t make us happy. It’s who we become that makes us happy.
