In a world of instant gratification, how do we navigate this power of want?
Kass and Steve dive into this human thought process and how to handle it. Our world is full of scrolling these days, and when you see someone on that vacation, or losing weight, or all those swipe up links, it can be hard to stop yourself from getting instant gratification. The power of wanting what everyone else has can lead you to never feeling satisfied, or comparing yourself to everyone.
Looking at olympic athletes, musicians, surgeons, you will see that they worked for years and sacrificed so much to get to where they are today. You might look at them and say that they are overnight sensations, when really they have worked behind the scenes for years. Don’t compare your life to someone else’s highlight reel.
When you stop wanting everything instantly and start working for the things you want, you will be happier with your results. Figure out the process, avoid the endless swipe ups, and remember that comparison is the thief of joy.
