Do you have food, shelter and good people around you?
Do you have a job and some money in your pocket, not rich but definitely enough to get by and go to Shoreditch once a month, eat out and have some fun?
People around you praise your achievements and tell you how ‘lucky’ you are? That you should not really complain?
… and yet you STILL find yourself not able to be 100% satisfied?
You are not alone. The ‘happiness is wanting what you have, not having what you want’ phase is long outdated – we are in the new age!
Does that make us ungrateful or ambitious?
What would your reply to me be?
If your mindset is fixed on me appearing ungrateful, then give it a re-think.
How would you feel if you felt like you were not reaching your full potential?
Imagine your body yearning every day for something different, just a remix in one aspect of your career or aspirations. It is all well and good for someone who wants to advance in one particular industry and they are happy with how far they have come, but to someone who feels there is more they can give/do the ‘hole’ is definitely a distinct feeling.
We are of course meant to be grateful for our blessings but by all means this shouldn’t limit your way of thinking. In my opinion your strong desire to learn more, think more and be more should be what gets you up each early morning, even on a bad day.
‘As long as I am breathing, in my eyes, I am just beginning’.
Time is always of the essence and the more we delay in reaching out for more we become too comfortable in our current situation. As long as you are still alive and breathing you are still required to fulfill your purpose in this world, and if that means learning new things, desiring more and creating more impact, then embrace it!
What are your thoughts on this? Would you call it ungrateful or ambitious?
