Monday Motivation // Is it Possible to Be Selfish Toward Yourself?

Is it possible to be selfish toward yourself? Rather, your FUTURE self.

I’m going to be honest and say that I’ve thought about quitting. Quitting school, quitting work, selling all my belongings to succumb to the sweet release of a nomadic lifestyle. After many, many conversations with my parents about why that’s probably not the best solution to life’s unavoidable difficulties, I’ve come to the conclusion that I was being selfish. My mindset wasn’t going to affect anyone’s life except for mine.

Allow me to explain: No college would care if I dropped out. My parents support me at all times, and have told me that no matter what I do they would never be disappointed in me or stop loving me. Which is nice to hear. The only person who would be affected by the decisions I make now would be myself. My future self. So in reality, it’s selfish to take away that from my future.

My point being, don’t rob your future self from success because you don’t want to do the work now. Work hard now, get stuff done now, pursue everything you want to become in life now. Stop quitting because it feels to difficult. There is no feeling more rewarding than to accomplish tasks that seem so difficult, that you could never see yourself finishing in the moment.

It’s possible to be selfish toward yourself, by nothing thinking of what’s best for your future. You can set yourself up for success, all you have to do is get past the difficult times and push through. It will be worth it in the end.
