#DailyMojo | Sharran Srivatsaa
I too enjoy many of the finer things in life. I love vision boards. I love dreams. I love celebrations. I love gifts… especially the surprise gifts even though I still have no idea how to receive them well. I love goals. Lets just be real, I love (almost all nice) things just like you do. But over the last few years I have started to become really honest with myself. My deep seated desires and dreams for many of the capitalistic toys I often craved have dramatically diminished. Lets be very clear, I said diminished… and not disappeared. I am no monk.
One of my mentors always tells me, “You get bonus points for telling the truth.” So I have started to ask myself just one question: Am I doing this for my social capital needs to fit in and keep up with my insanely successful friends or am I really doing this because it makes me personally happy to want it for longer than a day.
“Too many people spend money they earned to buy things they don’t want to impress people that they don’t like.” -Will Rogers
It has been a good filter for me. I have learned a lot about myself. What about you? Remember, you get bonus points for telling the truth.
