Life Can Be as Difficult as You Make It to Be

It all comes down to priorities. What is more important to you?

Everyone has it hard in some way. Yes, even rich people have it hard sometimes even though their problems might be way different from ours. We all stress we all have happiness in some form. What is it that makes life difficult for each one of us?

We live in a large overpopulated planet and it's only getting bigger. With more people comes more stress. The more people you put into a room of course you're going to have drama. People don't generally think the same and we don't want them to. This is what makes life so great.

We don't see the opportunity of having an overpopulated world. There are more opportunities now than ever. There are more markets of business and people to communicate with. We often hear of the negatives of overpopulation. It's often the source of problems even in films nowadays. People are causing the world to collapse. Yes I can agree on that but it's also an opportunity for you to make the best life for yourself.

It's so easy to be complacent today. I don't blame you for being complacent. There's a ton of distractions in the form of videos, art, music and other entertainment. Our society has become very good at making the world fun. The problem is knowing when to stop.

We have to know how to control ourselves when it comes to entertainment and not live a life of sloth. Laziness will make our lives more difficult later. Yes we have to think about the future. Maybe the world will end because of global warming and pollution but it won't end anytime soon so you have to prepare for your own future.

We can't be playing on our phones all day when chores around the house need to be done. You can't sleep all day when the stores are only open from 9-5. What if you have to be somewhere for a certain time? Don't be finishing that last episode of whatever you're streaming or finishing that last level of whatever game you're playing.

You're in a huge game of life. Everyone is conditioned to be lazy so take full advantage of it. You putting an effort into anything makes you a lot more competitive than a population of sheep. You have to realize that our society is made up of sheep and that's actually a great thing!

You don't have to be the best at anything. You just have to be better than most people because those that try are sometimes very few. We have to get outside of the mindset that we have to be the best at things we want to do. There will always be someone better than you at anything. Just know that the majority aren't even trying.

This is why I say that things don't have to be so difficult for you but this is a choice. You can stick around the sheep and glaze on the couch or you make something of yourself. Anything of yourself. If you can think it, well putting an effort into it means that you are that much closer than probably 75 percent of the population.

You can also be creative and pivot. If you put a spin on whatever you do then your competition dramatically decreases. You may even become the one and only person doing what you're doing. That all depends on how creative you want to get. As long as you're enjoying what you're doing then that's all that counts.

Enjoying what you do is an advantage as well. It will help you become consistent. Consistency is a big key to success at what you do. Too many people just quit when things aren't going their way. If things aren't going your way but you're enjoying it then who cares? Keep doing what you're doing because it makes you happy. Eventually people will recognize your efforts. If not that's not a problem either. Your personal satisfaction of your work is all that matters.
