Read Rat-Race Escape!
- Oct 11, 2021
Recently, I started to think about the fact that I want my own family (wife, children, and so on), but the problem is that I am afraid of not coping, making a mistake that will affect not only my life, but also the life of my wife and children. Have you ever had this happen? How did you deal with it?
I love that response from MJ. I think about that too. Like I don't want to be the 70-80 year old guy who just lived by; had an average life, lived in an average house, had an average paying job, had his 401k, had a vw minivan and never did anything extraordinary to change his fate. Never became a multi-millionaire(no one in my family is a wealthy guy. All live paycheck to paycheck ). That's a huge motivator for me to say the least. To provide a much better future for my future kids. Buy my son or daughter a Ferrari for their 18th birthday. Help my parents retire in Bahamas. I mean these things go beyond just money.I'd offer a thorough response, but this guy hasn't been back since he made this post, so I'll spare my time as it appears this is a "Drive By" poster.
The brief version was well versed by @Speed112 -- yes I'm scared, but I'm more scared of living a life full of regret, mediocrity, and thankless back-breaking work, only to die and realize that my life was as boring, meaningless, and uneventful as watching grass grow.
You will make mistakes along the way, that's just part of life. I don't know your age but based on what you said I guess you're under 30. Man just do something, some opportunities will never come back so make sure to get them.
