Everything good in my life has come from persistence. As in once I made my mind up that I was going to do something, I did it no matter what. It’s been great but I have learned a few unexpected lessons along the way. The most important of which I’d say is to not get overly obsessed with goals without enjoying the journey. The law of attraction is real but it doesn’t come without it’s trade offs.
I’m only 35 so I’m glad I figured this out now. I married the girl I always wanted to marry, I’ve got 2 beautiful daughters, I’m worth 10 mil and at this point the wealth just compounds, so I really never need to worry about money for the rest of my life. I’ve got more than enough time to smell the air I think, or I’d hope.
But my 20s and early 30s basically evaporated and I’ll never get that time back. I got so obsessed with achieving shit that I didn’t appreciate a lot of my prime years. On the flip side, people that didn’t focus like I did make up for it for the rest of their lives.
All I’m saying is that it’s a balance. Enjoy your life, contributing to the global economy is not inherently noble and there’s more to life than that, contrary to what a lot of people will tell you. Be nuanced in your goal setting.
