During my childhood, I always can we think best for ourselves. I always heard from the growing up saying that life is tough and working hard is a must for them in order to maintain current life style. Is that really true, and by working hard, playing less we can get what we want? When I grow up, I am in the same situation as well as people around me. Then I have another question in mind, when the time we get what we think we want, is that really what we want?

After a deep thought in all these questions, I finally realize that I working hard for nothing. Why do I say that? When you ask why, which means that you started to have questons like I do. We always believe things that elder people told us, study hard, work hard, play less and you will get what you want later in life. The fact that what they said what we want in life usually is what our parent want and the fact that what our parent want is actually what our grand parent want and the fact that what our grand parent want is what our great grand parent want. So what I'm trying to say is, what most people want when they work hard, is to get a "better" house, "better" life, and "better" car. As you can see, why do I put double quote for the word better?I put double quote for the word better

It is true that most of the people nowadays work so hard and some become workaholic just to make their life a little bit "better". Don't you think that this is somehow unwise? And because we want to become "better", it always lead us to work for money, and when we work for money, problem arise. You will hear people say that we have no time for our children, we have no time for our family, I have to work like a slave in order not to get fired.

Maybe you'll ask, do we have a choice? We just have to work hard to maintain what we have now and to get "better", we just have to work harder. My friend, we all have our choices, we can choose what we want and how we want to be. In order to make a good choice for yourself, you just have to spend some time to figure out what you really want in life, what is your ultimate goal? Without knowing what you really want in life, there is no way of going anywhere. So my friend, stop working so hard for a while, think hard for what you really want.

We must achieve a balnce in our life, so work hard and play hard.

This is spam. The treatments for panic disorder link should be a clue.

There's a saying that if you do what you love for a job, you'll never have to work a day in your life. I always told my kids, do what you love, what you have a passion for. If you do what you love, you'll become one of the best, and when you're one of the best, you'll get well paid for it.

Doing what you love you give it more energy, more attention, you have the desire to never stop learning, so you just keep getting better.
