What motivates you to do things

I’m currently doing alot I don’t want to be person as I m now. I want to have good job wife and kids

I was homeless. Had no income, no food, no prospects. I work hard to make sure that I’m never in that place again.

I fear being homeless or broke. Also while my parents are alive I want to show them that I can put up a nice fight despite the illness. I also want to have a girlfriend and I may be getting very close to reaching that goal :grin:

Some personal development gurus state that the right mindset is one of love and abundance, not fear and scarcity. But when I’ve been jobless for 4 years, totally dependant on my parents who themselves barely get by, it’s hard not to cling to my job and not to have fears.

It’s based on acceptance and commitment therapy act. Writes about how it’s not good to control our thoughts

I read 3rd half of it and I understood how there is no easy ways for achieving success

Sadly that is true. Many normies struggle, financially speaking. I have a good job now but getting laid off would complicate things. I tend to overthink and overreact to negative events in a self destructive way. I need to cultivate self acceptance and compassion.
