Many things are very, very simple.
But we silly humans tend to make them much more complicated.
Nearly everybody wants to live a good life.
A decent salary, decent house, decent relationship.
This is the ideal.
The question is, how do you get that?
A lot of philosophers have concluded that many of our problems stem from the fact that we never grow up.
We never make the transition from childhood to adulthood.
What’s this got to do with anything?
Children expect other people, usually the adults, to take care of them.
Kids want something, so they keep asking until they get it.
This seems to be the go-to strategy for modern humans.
Express a desire and wait for somebody else to take care of it.
This is the very same structure that’s in a lot of Law Of Attraction strategy.
Express your desires somehow, and let “the universe” provide for you.
What’s the adult model?
You create it yourself.
You operate on the world and make it happen.
This transition happened naturally way back in the day.
Boys went through various “coming of age” ceremonies, where they were forced to leave their childhood thinking behind.
Even the common wedding bible reading by St. Paul says pretty much the same thing:
“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
If you want to live the good life, you need to put away childish things.
Up To You
You need to be responsible for your life.
You need to take responsibility for whatever happens to you on the way to your good life, even if it’s not your fault.
The biggest driver of success in the ancient world was the difference between production and consumption.
If you produced 10,000 calories a day but only ate 2000, you HAD to give the rest away.
In exchange for that, you got admiration, respect and status.
The more you produced in excess of what you consumed, the more status you got.
The more authority you had.
Today it’s the same.
The more you wealth you produce in excess of what you consume, the more you can keep.
In the ancient world, status was everything.
In the modern world, status and wealth are closely correlated.
Nobody had money back then.
But we do today.
The more things you produce that others voluntarily pay you for, the more wealth and status you will develop.
And the better life you’ll enjoy.
It really is that simple.
