We, as human beings, have a great number of goals in life. We want to be successful, we want to get that special job offer, we want to live in that luxurious house or have that perfect lifestyle… Whatever your goals may be, it’s almost certain you are taking life too seriously in order to achieve them. Think about it: the secret of success is being successful despite the fact that you’re serious, not because of it. In this episode, Jason Goldberg shares with you the 6 most effective tips to take life (and yourself) less seriously.
“I started seeing that bringing seriousness to the work I was doing, bringing seriousness to my life in general was actually robbing me of the joy of life.” – Jason Goldberg
With these tips you will be able to recognize the whole seriousness living inside of you right now and you will be able to let it go gradually and naturally. These are powerful proven tactics that will shift your mindset and will help you remember that your problems are not so significant and your ego and focus might be working against you instead of with you. Sometimes in life we must detach things from being “the center of our universe,” and just loosen our grip a little bit.
“Whatever I make the center of my universe, I’m also going to put all of my energy into it to make sure I protect it from failing or just falling apart. And so that takes a lot of seriousness to constantly be protecting what I think is the most important thing in my world.” – Jason Goldberg
