As long as you make sure that you know what your game is.
And how it looks like.
Look. We're all playing a different game.
My game is different from your game.
Your brother's game is different from your game.
Your parent's game is probably very, very different from your game.
So maybe your game is to work 60-80 hours a week so you can afford exclusive vacations for two weeks a year where you can spend all of that hard earned cash.
Maybe your game is to work a 9 to 5 job so you can have a well balanced family life and raise your kids appropriately.
Or maybe your game is to build some sort of business to become financially independent.
Or maybe you're working on being location independent.
These are all possible games you could play.
And at the end of the day it doesn't really matter what your game is.
As long as you play your game and not someone else's game.
As long as you don't compare yourself to people who are playing a different game.
You always gotta make sure that you know what your game is so you don't compare your game to other people's games.
Again. We're all playing a different game.
So when you see someone posting pictures on Facebook about those two weeks of amazing and super exclusive vacations, make sure you know what that person's game is.
Make sure you know how that person is able to play his or her game.
Maybe they work 60-80 hours a week so they can afford these luxurious vacations.
Or maybe their parents are supporting them financially.
You'll never know.
You'll never see that on Facebook.
Or maybe your friend just quit her job and is now traveling the world with the money she saved and you're wondering why the heck you're still stuck in your hometown trying to get your business off the ground.
Make sure you know what game she's playing.
Make sure you know that it's probably not the game you're playing.
At least not right now...
Her game is probably that when she comes back she'll have burnt through a hell lot of cash.
She might have seen and experienced amazing things.
But as amazing and life changing these things might have been, she'll probably have to go back and get a job as fast as possible and work for another 5-10 years to fill up her bank account again.
She will probably not be able to work on her dreams or business ideas after she burnt through all of that cash. Heck, she might even be totally broke when she comes back.
Make sure you always know what your game is.
Make sure you never compare your game to someone who is playing a different game.
Make sure you know that you'll probably have to leave a lot on the table to be able to play your game all the way to the end.
Make sure you're comfortable with the things you'd probably have to sacrifice.
And then play that game all the way to the end...
