The Reason Why You Are Insecure In Your Current Position

The reason why you are insecure in your current position is this:
You are comparing your “behind the scenes” with someone else’s “promo video.”
Because we live in a you-tube, insta-gram, bite-size, 140 character, 30 second attention span digital nation — we think that overnight success — is a normality — rather than an irregularity.



So when success does not come to us at breakneck speed — frustration becomes our friend and time turns into our enemy. The crazy part is this:


As soon as you step in to the next level of your career or craft or talent — you will immediately experience the same sadness — because you failed to cultivate a spirit of contentment — and concentrated on how to blow up or get big.

I remember the time before I had my driver’s license. I loved riding bikes. In fact, my dad would usually purchase for me a new bike every year or so.

I was super excited, every single time.

Then my desire turned elsewhere — I was nearing the legal age of driving — and all my bikes were getting rusty from the rain in the back-yard of the pacific northwest paradise.

Here is what made matters worse. I owned my first car before I even had my driver’s license.

Every day I had to walk to school — and I had to walk right past my car sitting in the drive-way. It was torture.

I finally got my driver’s license. Epic. Until I realized that after a while, cars just take you from one point to another — quicker than a bike.

My euphoria faded as quickly as my taste in cars changed and developed.

Not much changes as you grow older in life. Unless of course — you fight for and find contentment in your current situation.

The lust for something newer, greater and bigger can consume you and even endanger you — and anxiety can set in when you want to go further faster — but the exact opposite is visibly occurring.

In tomorrow’s post, I want to point out five people who did not go viral, were not an overnight success and did not incur over 100k followers because of social media –

Yet they still continued to do that — which they were called to do — and did so faithfully —

  1. Can’t wait until tomorrow. You said the truth about you, bikes and cars.

  2. At first glance at the title, I thought its “Ten reasons…” – but you are promising to discuss only one… Hmmm… Ok… That’s fine with me 🙂

  3. This is super true. And to make it worse, most people only pay the promo video and try to hide the fact that there is a behind the scenes.

    1. Yes — good add!
