Its just the way it is.
One of the most dreadful phrases one could hear from their friends or their family - “Its just the way it is”, “Life sucks, nobody enjoys the work they do”, “Just be happy with what you have”.
Have you ever heard that from someone? Did it make you feel inspired or did it make you drop to the lowest level of your consciousness?
I bet you it was the later, not the former.
You can’t blame people, however. They are doing the best that they can with what they got. Not all of them have access to experiential understanding of possibilities.
This reminds me of David Eagleman, who has coined the term “Possibilitarian”.
I love this term, because when things get tough, and you know they will get tough more often than not - I would like to think of what is possible, not what is conventional.
And I can’t stop myself from talking on every corner about how I do not agree that “This is all there is to life”. I don’t agree that life sucks and we just have to brace for it. I don’t agree that everyone have uninspired jobs and thats all there is in the world.
Same lot for everyone. I just don’t belive in that.
At every level my being rebels at the concept that concept of being fulfilled at work is a fictitious one and nobody actually every experiences that.
That thinking is wrong on so many levels! And I am dedicated to continuously challenge that belief in every way possible.
Like they say : “I wasn’t born to just pay bills and die”!
There is more to life, so much more! All we have to do is take the blinders off and have the right support with us.
Let me know in the comments below if you ever heard that “This is just the way it is” in your life? What do you think about that?
