Real life is nothing like porn


Ok I understand we all get this, but for some reason, we all act like we don’t. We think that getting what we want will be as easy as it is in the movie. And we treat success stories the same way. Meaning that we hear a success story and secretly wish that the same thing would happen to us. Not doing anything to make it happen.

We see episodes of ‘shark tank’ and wish that the investors on the show would somehow find us and give us money. What we should be doing is strategizing. You can have anything you want, so why daydream about something that’s clearly not going to happen?

The problem with wishing without action

Did you ever see a glacier? As big as you think it is, all you have seen 10% of it. 90% of that glacier is under water. It’s the same with success stories, you don’t see 90% of the work they put into that success. All you see is the 10% where everything works out.

The entertainment industry knows what we like and keeps providing it to us. We would all like to live in that 10 % where everything works in our favor. We don’t like the grind, the part where we work hard and keep failing over and over again. But we are never going to get to that sweet spot if we don’t put in the work.

That’s the only difference between people who make their dreams come true and those who just keep dreaming and hating their lives. The only way to change your life is to take massive action.
