“Why You Aren’t Getting Ahead In Life and How To Block Out The Noise.”
Why do you feel like you aren’t getting ahead in life?
In what areas of your life do you feel like you are falling short? And why do you feel or think you are falling short when it’s possible you are actually right on time. Maybe you are exactly where you are supposed to be and all the challenges you are facing are really just part of your exceptional journey in life.
I know exactly what you are thinking… easier said than done. It’s tough to believe you are reaching your fullest potential when we see so many others accomplishing more than us. Whether it’s on TV, at sporting events, on social media, or in magazines. We can always find someone else who seems smarter, richer, and happier than us. This is the reason why we all feel like we are coming up short in life, the media glorifies the busiest and most accomplished people. Who’s to say that these people are happy? And why are we constantly comparing ourselves to them in the first place?
WHY IT’S SO EASY TO FEEL LIKE WE’RE NOT DOING ENOUGH.
Two words. Social media. The toxicity is just oozing out of social media daily and it’s nearly impossible to block out the noise but that’s exactly what we all need to do, especially if you feel or think that you are behind in life. The reason why you feel like you’re not doing enough is that everyone is constantly posting all the amazing moments and experiences of their life but no one (very rarely) shows their lows and failures. This is why taking a step back away from social media is so beneficial to your mental health. It gives you no choice but to constantly face the reality of life. You are here. Not on the internet. We waste our time on the internet when we can be living life in the real world.
GET AWAY FROM INSTAGRAM AND TIKTOK.
How I deal with feelings of inadequacies…
I myself have a really tough time dealing with the feeling and thoughts that I am not reaching my full potential. This happens because I see so many other authors or coaches, or social media influencers being way busier than me and writing more books than me. I struggle all the time with this. So what did I do? Well, very recently I’ve made a conscious effort to only focus on what’s going on in my world, inside. I’m not giving any attention to anyone else’s life and I’m not trying to be something or someone that I think I should be, I am simply living my life as it is. I am no longer modeling my life after other people. I am creating my own path and not trying to replicate anyone else’s.
OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND. UNFOLLOW OR MUTE EVERYONE ON INSTAGRAM AND FACEBOOK (EXCEPT ME lol)
One of the most accessible and most beneficial life hacks and solutions to this problem of not feeling like you are enough is to simply mute everyone on Instagram and social media. After muting or unfollowing everyone you will realize that you didn’t care about their life in the first place. Let’s regain our time, freedom, and most importantly, our life.
