You’re not wrong

No one likes to be told they’re wrong.

And yet we know that sometimes we are.

Making mistakes is normal, and human. It’s acceptable.

The real question is: are you happy with the results you’re getting from life?

There’s no right or wrong there. It’s just about whether you’re satisfied.

If not, then what?

Maybe ask yourself some helpful questions.

Like, for example…

Why are you not getting what you want out of life?

Is it because you don’t have the right job? Or the right spouse? Or a nicer place to live?

What’s missing? And is it even just one thing?

No you’re not wrong, but you’re definitely not satisfied.

So, next time you’re alone chilling out, get comfortable in your cozy spot, take a deep breath, and mull it over…

What’s the hidden pattern locked in your mind that keeps leading you astray?

This is one way to get some useful insight.
