I was listening to a podcast with a couple of people who are avid practitioners of personal growth and self-development. During their discussion, one of them was talking about his experience at a self-help seminar he had attended. He said, “Everyone is working their own thing, right.” I nodded my head as I pedaled on my stationary bike. And then I wondered…
Is that really true?
Is everyone actually, mindfully working on some aspect of their life? I know those two guys believe that because that’s the world they live in. I thought that initially, because that’s the way I approach my life too. Life as a journey towards enlightenment and wisdom, where we seek lessons and deeper meaning along the way.
But is that really how the average Joe (Or Jane) sees it?
Or are they just comatose; sleepwalking through their days, waiting to clock out, binge Netflix, and drink a six-pack of rancid fermented hops? How many people are actually working on something versus being totally oblivious? What’s the real breakdown do you think?
