Everybody wants what feels good.
Everybody wants to live a carefree,happy and easy life, to fall in love, to look perfect and make money and be popular and well-respected and admired and a total point that people part like the red sea when you
walk in the room.
Everybody would like that – It’s easy to like that
If I ask you “What do you want out of life”?
And you something like,
I want to be happy and have a great family
and a job.
I like ” its so ubiquitous that it doesn’t even
A more interesting question, a question that perhaps you have never considered before,
is what pain do you want in your life???
What do you willing to struggle for ???
Beacuse that seems to be a greater determinant of how our lives turn out.
Everybody wants to have an amazing job and financial independent- not everyone wants to suffer through 60- hour works weak, long commutes, obnoxious paper work.
Everybody wants to have great relationship but not everyone is willing to go through the tough conversation, the akward silences, the heart feeling and the emotional drama.
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 came back roaring back to life.
Therefore what we get out of life is not determined by the good feelings we desire
But by what bad feelings we’re willing to able to sustain to get us to those good feelings.
