FOMO, otherwise known as “fear of missing out”, has infiltrated deep into the modern human psyche. Clearly, the emergence and subsequent dominance of social media has played a huge role in making us feel like we are somehow always missing out on something.
Scrolling through your feed and seeing your friends or unknowns holidaying and partying while you are stuck in the office pulling 13 hour days is obviously going to wreak havoc with your priorities and focus.
This has created the buzz around everyone sprouting the throw away cliché line “I need balance”. Before you have an aneurysm and start yelling at your computer calling me a dickhead for thinking you can’t live without balance, let me explain a few things.
Balance to me means, no specific goals or desire to achieve a higher result.
As an example – I have had numerous individuals over the years seek my advice on how to achieve a certain goal. The fucking second I start to lay down my plan for their specific circumstances, they go to complete shut down mode and start spitting shit like “But I need balance in my life!”. Cool, I’m fucking more than happy for people to have “balance” and do mediocre shit, who the fuck am I to tell you how to live? But, when I am asked for my advice and opinion I will give it to you straight.
See, a certain fucked up little phenomenon has reared its ugly head called “I want shit for nothing”. Well, if it worked that way we would all be multi-millionaires, running around jacked as fuck at about 3% body fat, without a worry in the world.
Luckily there is a place that does exist for these delusional fucks out there, its called DISNEYLAND! Its a magical place where all your dreams come true and you get to skip around holding hands with Mickey Mouse! 📜 @coach_yat
