Don’t Let the Society’s Idea of Success Drive You Crazy



Don’t Let the Society’s Idea of Success Drive You Crazy

 ‘I desire a good life for my family, but that does not have to include a range of cars, a yacht in every port or another million.’ – Philip Gardiner

According to modern society, a successful individual is a person with lots of money, mansions, flashy cars, yachts, and other expensive trendy products. Most of us strive to live by this idea, and for this reason, we are stressed because this type of success always seems far away.

We buy trendy things we don’t need, and borrow money so that we buy these things and live by the modern idea of success. We then notice that these things are useless to our well-being and succumb to depression after realizing that we’ve gotten into debt because we tried to live by the society’s idea of success.

The sad thing is most of us start thinking we are unworthy because we haven’t met this type of success, and we constantly think about the future and worry whether we’ll achieve success.

We should discard this idea of success and prevent it from governing our lives and driving us crazy by realizing that it’s just a modern idea.

A long time ago, people were not obsessed with attaining material success because they focused on accessing higher dimensions, understanding the universe, and morality. And although these individuals valued material success and had ways of measuring it, they seldom obsessed over it.

Therefore, the idea that a person’s worth is determined by material success is a modern idea, and it should not drive you crazy. We were not created in a magical world – spinning on nothingness – to obsess over material success. Instead, we were created in this magical world, with millions of possibilities, to live whatever life we want.

We should stop trying to align with an idea of material success that was created by capitalists to encourage us to buy their products and work in their companies.

We should let our hearts guide us in creating our goals, and we should go after these goals even when we’ll not attain the society’s idea of success by attaining them. We should also stop worrying and avoid thinking that we are crazy when our goals don’t align with the society’s idea of success.

To conclude, we should strive to do whatever leads to fulfillment, and discard the society’s idea of success because it makes us focus too much on the future, and it might eventually drive us crazy.
