Have you ever felt like you are pinned to your day job with zero progress while the younger generation is out there, conquering the world? What is happening?
To clarify, I am a millennial. I am 22 years old, and I am referring to the people who are 1 to 3 years younger than me who are now looking so accomplished. Not everyone, but most of them. I feel like it wouldn’t take a year for me to have a boss that was my junior in highschool. There really is nothing wrong with that, but the problem is with me. I feel like I am stagnant, like everyone else is freely running, reaching their dreams, but I am still learning how to run.
Let me give you an example. I know someone who’s graduating, working so hard on the deadlines, but also rehearsing everynight for a pageant. This other girl is doing real well as an engineering student but at the same time she owns a printing business (she started with bookmarks then expanded into making invitations). I don’t blame them for being so talented and for using their time wisely, but there will always be a part of me that wants to stand in front of them and ask them how they did it. (Probably have a little talk to slow them down haha!)
With all those teenagers that are shining so bright, pressure builds up within me everyday. Everyday I feel like I am not doing enough. I work a day job, sounds decent, but others are doing greater things on top of their day jobs. Every day I think of writing a novel, but I don’t write it anyway because I get lazy, I get tired, and I feel no motivation. Everyday I pressure myself to have a better blog, to take everything to the next level, but I still don’t do it anyway because I am too pressured I have no clue which step to take first.
