I Think I Am Selling Myself Short – Are You Doing The Same?

I live in a house with trees. It is a great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. It’s peaceful here. I wake up and go to sleep. I can be in control of my schedule. I feel alive and well. I am very thankful for this moment. I feel like I’m expanding in ways that I never imagined. I’m discovering that I never knew it was possible.

I thought this would be enough. I realized that there was more to be done. A quiet life where I can do whatever I want would be enough. I want to find joy in this journey and appreciate the beauty of life. It would be enough if you had millions of dollars in the bank. I could use the money to help those in need. That teaching others about money and writing an international bestselling book would be enough.

I am starting to wonder if I am selling myself short. I thought I was capable of achieving great things, but now I’m starting to wonder if I’m not aiming high enough. If I’m settling. I don’t know if I’m wasting my gift. It’s difficult to realize that I’m not living up to my potential. wasting my time is worse. It feels like I’m just spinning my wheels when I’m in circles.

I have accomplished all of my goals at 36 years old. I’m proud of myself and motivated to push for more. Every single one. I feel like I have already done everything I want to do. I want to take on new and exciting experiences. This makes me happy and scared at the same time. It is a shaky place to be. I don’t know how long I can stay here.

It has forced many of us to question if the life we have been living is the one we want to keep. It has allowed us to create a lifestyle that is more intentional and meaningful. I am questioning my own life. I’m looking for the answers to make me feel better. We are taking action as a society. To create a better world for everyone, we need to make changes in our own lives. Look at the data. The data tells an important story.

In April over 4 million people quit their jobs and in May over 3.6 million people quit, no longer willing to settle for a mediocre life. This doesn’t surprise me since most jobs are bullshit jobs. Bullshit jobs are jobs that you just do for a paycheck. They can leave you feeling empty, but you still have to go to work. You want the day to pass as quickly as possible. These jobs can leave us drained and exhausted at the end of the day. There are jobs where you live for the weekend. If you want to explore a new city or experience a different culture, the jobs where you live for the weekend are perfect.

There are consequences to hit jobs. The consequences of bullshit jobs can have a negative impact on both employees and employers. They make people sad. They can bring a lot of unhappiness. They are easy to get, but you will spend most of your time trying not to lose it. Keeping an eye on your belongings is important to make sure they stay safe. It is easy to tread water and coast. In a large company, layers and layers of people are there to support each other. The company is able to remain competitive in the market because of the layers of people.

You are one of the lucky ones if you love your job and your life. Life is too short to not appreciate it and enjoy it. Most people don’t. According to Gallup’s 85% of Americans are extremely disengaged at work and 81% are actively looking for new jobs according to the State of The Workplace Report. People have jobs. These jobs are not a source of satisfaction.

Thankfully, people are quitting to find a job that makes more money, or has more flexibility, or to take the leap into entrepreneurship. Over 5 million new companies were created last year. It has never been easier to start a business and make money on your own. Five million is a very realistic goal for entrepreneurs.

It is easy to hide in your life. I watch this over and over. It’s like a broken record that never stops playing. Someone reaches out to me and says they are stuck. I can help in any way I can. I told them that if they feel stuck, then they probably are. They are probably over thinking things. People worry about small details that don’t really matter in the long run, suggesting that they’re getting caught up in the moment and not looking at the bigger picture. They have an irrational level of fear. In the form of panic attacks or avoidance of certain situations, this irrational fear can cause significant distress and disruption to everyday life.

I used to be there. I empathise with those who are struggling because I have seen how difficult it can be. I have been stuck many times. I find a way to get out of it eventually. It took me a long time to trust my intuition. It has allowed me to make decisions more quickly and confidently, as I’m glad I finally did. The more I have trusted it, the more it has grown. It has given me more. I am thankful for all of the opportunities that have come my way. It is telling me that I am thinking too small. I am trying to pay attention. I’m focused on understanding the material. Trying to figure it out. I’m not sure what the solution is, but I’m determined to keep trying.

The tighter I try to hold onto who I used to be, the more unhappy I get. I’m trying to let go of my old self and embrace the changes that come with maturing. The more interviews I do as Grant, the millionaire, the harder it is to do. I feel like I am living a double life, one as an ordinary person and one as a millionaire. I can get in and out of that guy. I’m pretty sure I can handle it. I know all the phrases that make journalists go, “Oh wow, tell me more!” I can perform. I no longer have that guy in my heart. I’m ready to start again and create the life I’ve always wanted. I haven’t been in awhile.

I don’t even recognize the guy who wrote Financial Freedom. He doesn’t feel like a person anymore. She used to know him, but now it feels like he’s gone for a long time. I didn’t recognize my words when someone sent me an article I wrote three years ago. It was strange to read my own words after a long time. It is no longer me. This is a positive thing. Positive outcomes will come from it. It means I am growing. I’m learning to be comfortable with the changes that come with it. It means I am letting go.

I also feel the beat of uncertainty in my life. As if it will never end, its rhythm is relentless. The strength of being. It can be overwhelming and lead to a feeling of vulnerability. Everything is one. I fade into my backyard many afternoons. I enjoy the beauty of nature when I take a break. I don’t know what the days are like. I feel like time is passing quickly, and before I know it, another week has gone by. When I didn’t know what day it was, I used to laugh. I can’t keep up with the events of the day and it’s starting to feel like a blur. I wonder if the wind is carrying me aimlessly. It’s a feeling of being free and not knowing where I’m going. I wonder if I am drifting if I am not trusting my intuition. I am worried about the future and questioning my decisions.

The status quo is drift. It can be dangerous to drift, as it can lead to a lack of progress. It’s a bullshit job. When low expectations turn into no expectations. It can be hard to find the will to reach our goals when this happens. It is when you don’t know what you want to do. It can be difficult to settle for less than you want, but it is also necessary. It is easier to think of something to do when nothing is being done. This is true when you feel uninspired. You coast on your early successes because they keep compounding. If you take advantage of it, you can achieve financial freedom.

People tell successful people to keep doing what they are doing. Don’t give up on your dreams, no matter what people tell you. Capitalism is efficient and creates expected results. Make a model and repeat it. Get more money out of it. Businesses can improve their bottom line and make more money by streamlining operations and cutting costs. Get more money out of people. Improved customer retention and greater profitability can be achieved by increasing customer engagement. Repeat. Grow.

Businesses start moving slowly when they get ahead of themselves. They may end up taking longer to reach their goals. People get stuck when their lives are jam-packed. Maintaining a healthy balance is important to make time for yourself. Life gets boring real quick. It’s important to try new things and push yourself out of your comfort zone in order to keep things fresh and exciting. It is how a job you once loved becomes a bullshit job. Feelings of hopelessness and frustration can take a toll on both mental and physical health.

I don’t want to be a billionaire. I want to live a fulfilled life. I don’t want to run a big company. I like the idea of running a small business that I have complete control over. I have never wanted to go to all the countries in the world. Either run Everest or run a marathon. I don’t want to be a great poker player or a great chef.

I just wanted to be free. I wanted to live my life without limitations. That was it.

Financial independence was a bullshit job. It’s a way of life that many people try to achieve. I feel like it is not enough. If I want to reach my goals, I need to do more. I am thinking too small. I should double down on my strengths. I’m trying to figure out how I can be the best version of myself, and what areas I should focus on in order to make the most progress. I should take more risks. I should stop wasting time. Sometimes it’s hard to motivate myself because I know I should be more productive. I should be making a bigger impact. I know I can do more with my life, but I don’t know where to start. Like I should expand my definition of “enough.” I should quit my job.

Are you selling yourself short? Don’t let anyone convince you that you aren’t capable of achieving your goals, you are worth more than you think, and should never sell yourself short! I think I am. I think I can do great things.
