Wanting to become successful while simultaneously hating successful people is counter intuitive. That negativity you’re putting out is confusing your subconscious mind. In order to level up and keep progressing forward in life; your thoughts and actions must align. They can’t both be pulling you in two different directions. If you are committed to leveling up and bettering your life, a few changes need to occur first beginning with your mindset and your mental approach to life. Start seeing the world for what it is, not what you wished it was.
You need to begin relating money and success to positivity and opportunity. When you get to your desired level of wealth and success, you are aiming to have a positive impact on your community and create opportunities for others to excel as well. Money is not evil. Money is simply a tool which you can use to improve your life and the life of the people you love.
Stop Hating Those Ahead
Stop hating the rich. Stop hating people who are currently ahead of you. Stop hating people who are actively trying to better themselves. It’s simply a waste of time. Nothing is going to change, and you wont garner any sympathy unfortunately. Instead of wasting your time and energy disgruntled, this is where you take the opportunity to learn. Who better to learn from than someone who is exactly where you are trying to reach? This does not necessarily relate to “rich” people, but rather someone who is doing things you are interested in. Let the resentment go and open yourself up to learning from them. This mental shift from “screw them” to “what can I learn from them?” will allow your mind to start seeing new opportunities for growth.
You Can No Longer View Yourself as A Victim
Before you descended to this earth, you did not get to choose the family you were born into. Some people will have better starting points than you, but it does not mean you cannot excel in your own race. If you walk around feeling sorry for yourself, you will never amount to anything because you’ll have a constant mental block on your potential. There is a fork in the road here and you need to decide who you want to become. Either continue to mope around all your life and accomplish nothing in the long run or realize that one, nobody cares… and two, YOU are the only person going to help you improve your situation. Stop looking at yourself as a casualty or a damsel in distress. This point is the key to unlocking your potential, it’s crucial you understand and get it through your thick skull. (We know you’re hardheaded) You are more than capable of improving your life to a status which your heart desires.
You are not a victim, you are not helpless, you are more than capable.
You Are Player 1
Now that you no longer see the world through victim lenses, you can begin looking at things through an opportunistic lens. Once you view yourself as a player in this game of life instead of a victim of life, you can begin to piece things together. Think of life as a video game and you as player 1. You have the controller in your hand. The only catch is that the joy sticks can only control player 1, you. The sooner you realize you are the only person you can control in this game of life, the sooner you stop wasting time trying to control others. With great power now comes great responsibility and you are now responsible for improving your situation.
Get to Work
You now understand the mental approach and mindset required to consistently level up in this game so begin taking action! People who win big in this game of life, especially starting from the bottom, all take this approach. Don’t hate on people who are ahead of you, focus on what you can learn from them instead. Stop seeing yourself as a victim, no one cares, and no one is coming to save you. You are doing yourself a disservice. Lastly, only YOU are in control of your character, it’s up to you to build the life you want to live.
“Instead of wasting your time and energy disgruntled, this is where you take the opportunity to learn.“ This and the concept of player 1 is dope af. I can only hope more people realize they’re only further victimizing and oppressing themselves when they resent the successful. Well written!
