How Would You Fare in a World of Instant Gratification?
The true obstacle standing in front of us and the things we want out of life is our predisposition towards a certain lifestyle.
Indeed, our lifestyle choices essentially decide how we spend our time on a daily basis.
What we think, what we say, and what we do all go back to the lifestyle of our choosing.
Even our thoughts are reliant on our lifestyle choices.
What we tend to do and how we have formed our perspective determines the sort of thoughts that occur to us.
I think the young people in our generation are some of the brightest people to ever grace society with their presence.
But their brilliance is undermined by the society’s tendency to leave them defenseless against the maddening storm of the outside world.
I see a lot of clever people who graduate from top universities and go to work in reputable firms. But after a couple of weeks, they fall into the pit of depression.
‘What’s the problem?’ I ask them, and they usually reply that they want to make an impact on the world, but their current job is not as satisfying.
You see, this is all the problem of a world that prioritizes instant gratification, as opposed to hard work and reward.
Let us take a look at our social interactions.
The moment we decide that we are lonely or bored, we take up our smartphone and send a message to ten of our friends.
When some of them reply, we get a hit of dopamine. Yes, it feels good. Yes, it takes you out of that wearied zone.
Whenever we crave food, we can take up the phone and order a pizza, which will be delivered within half an hour.
Whenever we want to buy something, we just order it from Amazon and it arrives a day or two later.
This is a world of instant gratification. Our patience is undermined by everything that is happening concurrently in the world surrounding us.
(In the near future, I am going to talk extensively about the properties of instant gratification and how we can leave this mindset behind.)
A person who lives in a society like that cannot understand the value of hard work and patience.
Great achievements, results or impacts on society require a lot of time and dedication.
Our young generation are standing in front of the mountain and they want to get to the summit, but they refuse to see the climb.
The climb is the most important part, and it takes time and effort.
Without understanding this fundamental truth, you can never be happy, satisfied or fulfilled with your current job.
To make an impact on society, we must first free ourselves from this world of instant gratification.
A BIG HUG!!!
