Why do others tell you not to work so hard? Will you refuse to give up on your dreams because people say you are picky. So what? If you're invested in your future, here are five reasons why you should be picky. Don't let others kill work ethic; If you have a dream, this is the price that comes with success
Reason 1: Self-Esteem.
You should set high standards for yourself because it will help you get somewhere in life. If you aren't picky enough when it comes to jobs, partners, or roommates, how do you expect people to take you seriously? I purposely style even my blog titles a little differently sometimes as a way to stand out from the sea of other webpages out there. The crazy part is that there are millions of other websites, so what's a man or woman to do with all that noise? Pick your gains and losses
Reason 2: Getting Ahead.
Being a picky eater is somewhat of being like an asshole, except that you're just choosing to upset everyone's day by preferring certain foods over one another, of which all are needed to survive. In the end, everyone will always think that what they're eating is the best, similar to that of driving. It's the most common beliefs that we can't agree on, however, so is getting ahead... Think about this; You have a goal set for the year, yeah? Maybe it's getting a girlfriend or hitting the gym and getting a six pack. Either way, to work towards your goal, let's be completely honest: You have to be a bit of an asshole by being narrow in your choices, yet this is how you're going to achieve those goals in the first place. That's why the most known book of all time even states, "the path of righteousness is narrow, but the path to destruction is wide"
Reason 3: Understand Yourself Better.
Perhaps this is a goal that not very many people have because most of the population lives in complete darkness. Friends are something we should all get to pick and choose, so therefore you can hang with the "right" people. Sometimes, we don't even know what's bad and good for us. It's all a matter of perspective and by being picky with your choices you make in life, you will certainly come to understand your own inner guidance better to trust your gut feeling. After all, a wise rapper named Big Sean once said, "If I don't feel good doing it, I don't even want to do it."
Reason 4: Work Smarter, Not Harder.
Another improved benefit of others calling you picky is that you get to use your time wisely. I mean I've already said this but pretty much time in fact is more important than money. You might think that huge companies are cheap by looking for ways to cut costs and lay off more people, but ultimately it still comes down to saving their time. There's actually a really cool video of Tai Lopez explaining for twenty minutes exactly why hard work just isn't enough. Anybody can work hard, it's just not as hard as you think the way some of the world's most successful people on the planet put in their time to extraordinary use. Think about it: Why would the majority of employee population boast about how many hours they work? It's a joke that us picky people don't get.
Reason 5: Live Healthier.
Weird but true. There's actually a term called decision fatigue that happens when to keep choosing between what to put on that you don't even wear anything at all. And also, being picky with food isn't necessary bad but if you're living in any well developed country (most of us are here) you should definitely optimize your life to be in good shape. Mentally and physically, your body needs to be well fed in order to feel good and I don't know about you but my health is more important than what my mom's friends say about me, or even the people at work for that matter. They don't control my life and neither should they to you... It's all about moderation...
