Haven’t posted in ages so here is one. As time passes by day to day I see myself faced with trivial challenges known as “First World Problems”. These are the problems in which one would find unreal to be look at as a problem such as, “I hate my job because it is uninteresting and boring.” I start to question this statement I tend to make and others follow in this as well. I understand that now people can get a job pretty easily if you are willing to dedicate yourself and specialize yourself in anything you do. Most people will go about his/her tasks day by day not really thinking how they can make themselves better at their job / make tasks easier or simply put change. I can’t seem to wrap myself around the notion that people do this day to day when they tell me, “I wish I were rich”, or “I wish I was as smart as you”, or “I wish I had more time”. I ask he/she “How could you change that?” I repeat if I wanted to be rich I simply would dedicate myself to something/anything that interested me and devote myself everyday to make that change. Money comes and goes, it is isn’t easy to become rich if you are not willing to put in the time and effort to change it. Then they say I wish I was as smart as you… I simply say if you want to be smarter than me simply read, study new things you didn’t know, don’t be narrow minded and keep an open mind about things. If you wanted to be a doctor, simply study the material day to day on what type of doctor you want to become devote yourself to it. People would reiterate to me “Not everyone absorbs new material as fast a you would” I simply would reply “If they put in the time and devoted themselves to it I am sure they would”. Then, people constantly say “I don’t have enough time…” or “It is too late for me”. I honestly can say I catch myself running into this as if there were not enough time in a day. But, it isn’t true. Everyone does have time. If you don’t have time you can make time. Instead of casually lounging around, having a vast social life, bouncing around from one social media site to another, or watching your kids. Simply put you can make time if you dedicate yourself and putting in the time to do so. Anyone can change, find your passion and dedicate yourself to making a change. Spitting some random non-sense that is running through my mind. -Jay H.
