#532: No One Gives A Damn About Supporting You [WOYG Podcast]

September 18, 2017 #532: No One Gives A Damn About Supporting You [WOYG Podcast]

I once met this girl via MySpace who lived in North Philadelphia. We exchanged a few messages then moved the conversation to the phone. I went to see her finally, and learned about her live-in boyfriend, who was at work at the time.

I asked her hypothetically what we would do should her man come home while I was there. She laughed and said, “You’re on your own!”

I meet so many people who know exactly — or at least have awoke very good ideas — about what they could do to help themselves in business, their personal lives, or in their sport. Many of this so many, however, don’t want to execute on these ideas — usually out of fear.

Not fear of any real consequence, or physical harm, mind you — fear of judgement from others (which really is judgement from ourselves). We imagine others laughing at us and never forgetting the major failure we are/were, our futile attempts at improvement living on in infamy.

The truth, though, is something you can examine yourself: we don’t spend nearly as much time thinking about other people’s failures as we spend predicting and/or in fear of our own.

And at the same time, people are not nearly as invested in seeing you win as you are/need to be.

I’m not saying that no one would ever help you if you needed a hand, or that you wouldn’t get a meal and some water if a natural disaster ravaged your town. Beyond your basic needs, you’re not a person in need — get it? Which means, when it comes to making your success happen, you’re on your own — even more than you think you are.
