Our society puts pressure on us to constantly improve ourselves. Get a degree, get a nice car, find a better job, or better yet, the perfect job! Find that one job that is perfect for you and apply yourself completely to get it. Put all your hopes and dreams into it.
What happens if it doesn’t work out? Do you just give up? Resign to living your life as it is? Or do you try again?
Imagine you are on a game show where you are offered a chance to win $1,000,000 if you can get through an extremely difficult obstacle course. A course that not many before you were able to complete. You’re also given as many attempts as you would like. How many times would you try before giving up and continuing with the status quo?
