I hate the word ‘addict.’ Everyone is addicted to something. I know plenty of people who are addicted to things that are more intangible, such a control.
Many of the things I am addicted to aren’t illegal. For instance:
People Who Are Self-Sufficient
On the other hand, I know some people whose addiction to food is way more harmful than the amount of Mad Dog’s I drink.
Why is everyone so worried about what the person next to them is doing? I suspect the reason is, guilt. They feel guilty about whatever their guilty pleasure is. It’s a way of rationalizing their own behavior.
In psychology, there is something known as ‘grit.’ Grit is a non-cognitive trait based on an individual’s perseverance of effort combined with the passion for a particular long-term goal.
Studies have shown that having the ability to overcome obstacles is more important than intelligence or talent.
Why do some people succeed and others don’t? The real question is, how great is your desire? It comes down to resilience and how hard you’re willing to work. I don’t know one person who has a sense of entitlement who is truly happy, not one.
