3 Days 3 Quotes Tag | Second Day: Wanting and Needing, 2 different things
Hi guys and welcome to my place! ?
It’s the second day of the 3 quotes 3 days! 😀
Let’s go over the rules again:
• Thank the person who nominated you.
• Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day, can be a super short post).
• Nominate three new bloggers each day.
Thank you again Auri-nee for tagging me ❤
Now, my second quote is more of a lyric than a quote per sais, but I end up thinking on it many times:
When you try your best but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep
Ok… I know, there is many thoughts in those 3 lines of lyrics and I will address them all, don’t worry!
First: Trying your best and not succeeding… It’s one of the worst things ever. It does hurt a lot when you do put yourself 100% in something and in the end not working out and it can be anything in life honestly… The thing is, there will be many times that we won’t be able to get something we want by only giving the 100%. It blows my mind me the quantity of Youtubers that are amazing and don’t have even 1% of the subscribers they deserve, but the thing is… Luck is also part of the equation, like it or not. However, I am true believer that if you want something and you fight a lot to get it you eventually WILL get it. So, even if you are doing your best and not succeding don’t put your arms down, know that sooner or later you will succeed. Also, don’t forget to always learn and evolve. Sometimes your best is not enough and that only means one thing: Not that you will never be able to do it, but that you need to improve yourself first before doing it 🙂
Second: Getting what you want and not what you need: This happened to me in the past. Most recently my latest job. I wanted to work in the marketing department in a multinational company and if it paid well, the better. Well, that was what I got and I hated 90% of it. So yeah, I thought that what I wanted was what I needed, but it was not. Well, how to be able to differentiate these two things is not easy, but I do remember when taking the job that I was not 100% confident that I would like to work there! I know that there were some red flags happening in my mind that I shut down because I thought I needed that job… Well, I can say that nowadays I take my red flags way more seriously and try to hear my emotions a lot more! 😀
The last line of the verse is just, well, what is the result of the 2 lines before. If you dwell in those two for too long it’s just normal that you won’t be a happy person. And when you are not happy the night before going to sleep is always a challenge because of all the thoughts that come up. My advice for this is, if you are not happy, then understand what do you need to change in your life and do it. In my case, I quit my job with no idea where I would go next. I am now working in the digital marketing area where I wanted to have some experience and in a small business instead of a multinational. Guess what? It’s working out. It’s true that I am earning way less than I was before and I’m not that good money wise at the moment, but the truth is, I’m way happier now! 😀
Again, if you already been tagged feel free to not pay attention and just go with your life like this never happened ?
And that’s it for today! Tomorrow I’ll come back with another quote! ^^
