Without getting too political, being grateful for what you have got is great but not advocating for improvement just leaves you open to exploitation.

Too many people work hard all their lives with very little to show for it. I find telling people they have to be happy with what they have got only benefits the super wealthy.

If you don't get off your ass & make shit happen for you, nothing will. You'll end up working a 9-5 for average money into your 70s or even longer. While it is important to be grateful for what you have, that doesn't mean you shouldn't do whatever you can to earn/achieve more.


GracieIsGorgeous t1_j0b4uz4 wrote

To be fair to OP, no mention was made of not making any future effort. Only the belief that being grateful for what you presently had, created a mindset that was progressive.


crm_expert OP t1_j0b5efi wrote

I interpret this message in a different way. I think the quote is saying that you should be confident in your abilities in such a way that you don't have to worry about tomorrow. What if I lose this job or my business? No worries, I can build myself up from scratch. What if I lose this potload of money I have saved? If I can do it before, I can do it again.

This, of course, doesn't mean that you stop working and start making bad financial decisions. It just means that you stop worrying about things going wrong and start thinking about things going right, and even if things go wrong, a strong belief in yourself that you can make it through.


LDKCP t1_j0b9zsr wrote

That's sweet but it ignores the realities of life for the vast majority of people. For many, so little is certain and simply being grateful and optimistic will do very little when it really matters.

Be thankful for what you have, be optimistic, but never let anyone tell you that you shouldn't be pissed off at times, that you should ignore doubts and instincts on real possibilities that could have bad outcomes.

Realistically, people in power, employers and a good chunk of society care so little about your success or wellbeing. Pretending that you have "already won" and you will be fine in the future anyway is naive beyond comprehension.

Except I neither have what I need today nor tomorrow. Unless someone randomly drops a house in the middle of the road for me, that's not going to change. Much like the last 4 years, I will continue struggling to gather the most basic of necessities in order to stay alive, with no guarantee I'll be able to get them.

In other words, this is some privileged bullshit.


Whiplash17488 t1_j0bj27t wrote

This is impossible advice. Gratefulness is an emotion which is a judgement that follows from a thought. You can can’t control emotions otherwise you could just learn to “be happy”. Got cancer? Just be grateful. Its impossible.

The only way out of this is carefully examining our thoughts and our judgements because more often than not they are irrational to some degree.

Pretending tomorrow you will have what you need so just be grateful is as useful as hope. There’s a reason the ancient greeks described hope as a curse because they saw it caused inaction among people.

So i see the advice here as more of a shorthand: if you have impressions of a situation that lead to anger, anxiety, or fear; then examine them carefully. Perhaps your judgements don’t make sense.

Time to read some Epictetus. The ancient Stoics teach us that anger, anxiety or fear are always irrational and why.

You can practice mindfulness and gratitude without being complacent when it comes to your position in life. It doesn't mean that you just sit there and accept what you have and be a slave, nor does it mean that you ignore reality or logical possibilities

Successful people didn't get that way with defeatist attitudes. Failure is just a speed bump on the road to success. How you view that failure, or the possibility of failure, determines how far you're willing to go in order to reach your goals.

This is the opposite of Get Motivated.

Often, people need/want to get motivated when they have something in their life they want to change. Maybe it’s a new job, working out, better self-care, and a plethora of other things they want to accomplish in this stage of their lives.

This is basically, “Nah, no need to get motivated to change anything. You’ve already arrived at your destination.”

You can learn to use your mind in ways that make you more happy. You can learn to use your mind in a way that you are more grateful. Just because you haven't doesn't mean you can claim that no-one can do this.

You then use a biological condition 'cancer' to try to make the point that we can't change our emotions. Our emotions are not the same as our biology. It's easier to control your emotions with the right patterns and processes than it is to reverse genetics and control biology.

You seem to be on your high horse. The abundance mindset is a real mental change you can make in which you change the lens you see the world through as one with more opportunity. A new perspective does not mean illusion. Much like someone else might look at a problem you have and be able to provide advice or insight that you had not previously thought of. Their standpoint was not imaginary, it just wasn't one that you held. Similarly, if you can change your natural vantage point towards problems in life and opportunity in your life - you can take up a new energy and attitude in general. I know firsthand and have watched others do the same, don't tell me it can't be done.

There will always be people who have grown and evolved into peaceful abundant mindset. And then there will always be another group throwing stones saying it is woo woo and impossible. I hate to be cliché, and I know this will trigger some. But which pill do you want to take.

Awesome advice for trust founders and other wealthy people, because they do indeed have what they need today and will tomorrow. They have won and can be grateful knowing there’s no need to compete or fret. The rest of us can be grateful for what we have and strategize on how to get enough of what we need for today and tomorrow. It doesn’t mean we’re bitter or jealous of other’s successes but we’re realistic.


Randomn355 t1_j0d3upq wrote

Or it's people who have grown up in abusive, divorced households, who know they can make the cut because they'll actually apply themselves at something they're good at. Rather than following a passion that doesn't allow them to achieve their goals.

And you know what? We have already won.

Because we get it. We understand how to plan a career path, we understand how to adapt to setbacks, and most importantly of all, we aren't afraid to make changes necessary within our morals.

How many people stay at a job certain they're being underpaid?

How many people stay living in an area because it's familiar and comfortable, instead of moving somewhere that is better for their goals (careers, savings, home ownership etc)?

How many people choose to drive a car MUCH more expensive than they need, rather than putting that money towards the goals they claim to want so bad?

But people who aren't willing to adopt this kind of mentality will invitably find themselcwa in one of 2 camps.

Fortunate enough to not have a problem with that, or perpetually stuck not achieving their goals.

You can either take a defeatist mentality, or the one OP describes. One of those, in every situation, will work better for you than the other.

Probably, I just saw this on the frontpage. It's hard to give motivational advice that's meaningful when it's so generic.

Specific motivational advice is way more meaningful - tailored to context. "If you're trying to go to the gym and having trouble building a routine, you can do such and such to try to fix that". Or "If you're having trouble with compulsive eating, here are some ways to make food and kinds of food to make that can help". That sort of stuff.

Super generic motivation is that "hang in there" kitty picture.

I have to take sides with you. Title says "rigged in your favor". Paranoia is the opposite; as in things and or people are rigged/rigging against you. Pronoia is the belief in the opposite that people are actually wanting the best for you and even conspiring to lift you up.

As you said one works better than the other. Whether either is true in any given scenario. One feels better and works better.

Does anyone really believe thinking things are rigged against them is a productive mindset?


Jo_yEAh t1_j0d5gkc wrote

I've often seen people stating that life is not fair to them and that the odds are stacked against them. I've never been one to say that life is fair. If you accept life is not fair and work within the true confines of life you will do better than to simply complain that life has nothing to offer. You are acting as though people are truly hopeless, with no control over themselves. At any point you can do something to move towards peace and happiness. Again, you will not get there immediately, it may not be exactly as you thought. But you can incrementally make things better. On average this approach will lead to a better life than doubting change and dismissing any hint of optimism. Even the most broken down person can have a change of heart if they are truly ready.

Mindless_Ad_1008 t1_j0daf3d wrote

I'm going to start with a disclaimer, this does not work for everyone but it did work for me. I made a lot of changes almost faster than my little brain could process. I got a job that allows me lots of free time, got out of my lease in an expensive shithole house, and bought a van that I upfitted to be a comfortable camper. I'd bum off my parents for a place near work when I was needed, and use my free time taking camping/road trips. Combine this with some plant-based inspiration and before I knew it I was effectively on top of the world. I've since sold the van and live a pretty lame life again, but I am moving soon. Essentially if whatever you're doing now isnt working, change it! You're not obligated to just waste your life, as far as I'm concerned we only get one.

TLDR: Downsize, do exactly what you want to do within your means, don't be afraid of change, always stay busy and give yourself something to look forward to!

I’ve always felt of confidence as proud of what you’ve done and who you are while recognizing mistakes and striving to be better in those areas. Hopefully constantly recognizing areas to touch up or improve, improving them and then gaining more confidence. But recognizing faults, shortcomings, or weakness and becoming/remaining confident in your ability to do so.

Whereas hubris would be more “I’m not supposed to fail because it’s ME, I deserve to “win” for no other reason than because of that. I have no weaknesses so why are we wasting time playing? Just give me the prize.

IMO every single confident person will be able to tell you open and honestly about their weaknesses, able to apologize and take blame when they fuck up, and strive to do better. A person with no confidence or too much hubris either lacks the confidence to think “I made a mistake, but it’s nothing I can’t overcome. I’m confident I can do better next time. Therefore they deny blame or ownership.

And someone with hubris thinks “I’m the best there’s ever been I’m perfect. This couldn’t have been because I did something wrong”. And can’t fathom that they make mistakes too

Cool if you learned it from the movie though. Good on you! It's a good habit to look up new words you might hear or read so you can expand your vocabulary.

I've always been an avid reader, and have always made it a point to lookup words I don't know.

LOL! Just because nobody you know used it and that it's some novel word to you doesn't mean "nobody used it" and doesn't mean it hasn't been a common word for a couple thousand years. It's literally Latin, used by the ancient Greeks and Romans. It's use has persisted to this day. Latin is still used in the medical community and is the root of many words in Western English.

It just means it's been "re-learned" by more people. If you consumed literature outside of YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, Reddit, and the like, it wouldn't be new to you.

It's clear that you are younger, and don't have broad exposure to the world at large (at least to literature), and need to be exposed to broader ideas.

I don't say that to insult you, but to encourage you to broaden your horizons and knowledge. You're going down the right path - curiosity, knowledge seeking, asking questions, et cetera (abbreviated etc, but also Latin!)

👍I applaud you asking questions, and your curiosity. That is how we all learn.
