Why Successful People Don’t Read Articles Like This One
This article will cost you your precious lifetime.
So why on earth do you keep reading?
Because you want more motivation?
Do you need better health?
You’re looking for that one simple hack that cures all your problems with one big bang?
Tim Ferris Won’t Help You
I’m sorry to disappoint you, but you won’t find it here.
Not here, not on Tim Ferriss’s blog, and not even on Eckhart Tolle’s YouTube channel.
Matter of fact, the solution to your deepest problems can’t be found on the internet.
Basically, the internet tries to change you.
The moment you open your browser, the internet tells you that you aren’t enough:
“You’re not passionate enough”, whispers this self-improvement online guru.
“Start a side hustle”, demands the business guy from Instagram.
“Buy bitcoin”, yells the YouTube finance expert.
Aren’t you tired of shallow advice like this?
I’ll say it again — most people on the internet want to change you. They want to change you according to their own self-image so that they feel better about themselves. To have more control. They’re in desperate need of external validation — including me.
Don’t do us that favor.
The Holy Grail Of Success
Successful people don’t look for answers on the internet.
They don’t read dozens of articles about Jeff Bezos’s decision-making.
They don’t need motivational workout videos from YouTube.
They don’t try to emulate Elon Musk’s success mindset.
Successful people know that productivity hacks are short-term thinking.
They cherish genuine social interactions in the real world.
They go for extended walks in nature to clear their mind.
They’re not scared to walk their own path.
Successful people trust their gut.
They’re ok with being alone. And because they’re authentic, they eventually end up with the right people at the right time.
Ok, successful people fail from time to time. In that case, they treat their wounds, take a deep breath, and re-enter the arena of life.
Successful people look for intrinsic value. They know the internet is a traveling circus, full of entertainers, magicians, and jugglers, trying to mislead you from your own path.
That’s why successful people use the internet as a tool, not as an end.
Successful people listen to themselves. They don’t need permission from anyone to follow through.
They know what needs to be done because they trust their instincts.
And then, they do it.
