The digital rat race

 


Now we talked recently about the "Rat Race" which is a term you might not be so familiar with, but I'd say that it's a state people get their selves in where they always think and dream of the next thing unstopably, the next job promotion, the next new car, the next bigger house, without gratitude and without even living, a person involved in the rat race is never happy.


Now as we all became addicted to the internet, another type of this rat race appeared, and I'd call it the digital rat race, I don't know actually if anyone ever wrote about it before, but if not, then I'd like to coin this term.


The digital rat race is all about numbers, because no matter how your numbers are up, you're just never satisfied.

I'm talking about the number of followers you have, the number of followers your business page has, the number of visitors to your blog/website or digital store, the number of likes you get on your posts, and the number of people viewing your stories, are we ever satisfied with them? Simply, NO.

So this is a problem probably everyone encounters maybe also on a daily basis, yet no one talks about it, so how could we solve this problem? I'll tell you how.

When you're unsatisfied with a thing, probably you are using the wrong metrics, I'll give you two examples and you could apply them wherever they are applicable.

I started working when I was 12 years, and when I first started working in real-estate (I was 15 then), I spent the first 4 months working day in day out without making a single penny as a profit, and this was so discouraging, I felt so bad at the end of this summer when I realized that I spent my whole summer without going out, and without also making any achievements, so this is a very sad situation, right?

It was a sad one only because I decided that, then I shifted my whole perspective, I said to myself: "You've gained so many networks, you've earned so much experience, and you learned what people might learn in years in a couple of months, I learned to handle people and to read their eyes correctly, and so much valuable lessons that couldn't be measured in terms of money, and that I've earned respect from business associates who were at sometimes 40 years older than me, so you've definitely won"

See that when I shifted my perspective, everything just changed immediately, and I became so motivated to work, and after it with a couple of days I made my first commission and I was extremely happy.

Another example is when I started writing, I had very low numbers, not because I'm a bad writer because I consider myself an innate writer, but because people barely read, and I'm more than happy you're reading this right now, and I saw people having thousands of reads for a single article, while I wrote over 100 articles that have had less than 10k reads.

I was so discouraged about writing more, but then I also shifted my metrics and said to myself: "If a single person read an article that I've wrote, and this article changed his life even with a 0.001% to the better, then I have definitely won"

Everything in this life is a perspective, two people might be in the exact same situation, but their perspective would be different, resulting in two different experiences.

So to wrap this up, I'd say that if you're unsatisfied about anything in this world, just change your perspective, change your metrics, change the way you measure value in things, you could get 100,000 fake visits to your blog, but a single loyal reader is better than all of them, seek value, not numbers.

I hope this was helpful, and I wish you a great happy life, and thanks for your precious time :)
