1. Our miserable, detestable, deplorable jobs

If you love your job, great news. If you’re like the other 95% of the population, then it sucks. Our jobs, although we may only be there for 40 hours a week, can feel like a life-without-parole prison sentence. Like with prison, we feel trapped, hopeless, and doomed to a life we don’t want.

2. Family stress

Having children is a true blessing and is the most wonderful thing in the world, but can also be and usually is the cause of an enormous amount of stress. Kidnapping, pedophiles, traffic accidents, injuries, and home invasions are all major concerns for any parent, but it’s the whining, disrespectful behavior, tantrums, hitting, and lack of sleep that really gets to us.

3. Being apathetic

So many people have seemingly given up on ever having the life they want. Life truly wears them down and out and there is nothing but a shell of a person left. This is unbelievably sad but all too common. These folks are just going through the motions of life without any real direction, passion, or interest.

4. Being Ordinary

The world needs more leaders, out-of-the-box thinkers, action seekers, risk takers, and passionate people. What the world does not need is another average Joe living paycheck to paycheck.

5. No direction

With no goals or dreams, how can we expect to achieve anything significant? Dream big and get big results. Dream small and get small results. Don’t dream at all and get nothing.
没有目标, 没有梦想,我们怎么能成就大业?有小梦想就会有小成就。没有梦想就什么也得不到。

6. Not having a passion for something

When someone can find their real passion in life, that should be a momentous event for them. Many people will go through their whole life without ever realizing what it is that gets their hearts pumping, and minds racing.

7. Being selfish

Giving something of yourself without the desire for anything in return is one of the most beautiful things in the world. Our society has taught us a “what do I get out of this” mentality which is breeding a generation of ‘takers’. What we need more of is people who truly understand the power behind selflessness.

8. Not having a release

With the constant stresses life places on us, we all need a release. Finding a hobby, activity, or interest can be a lifesaver. Take up tennis, join a local business group, or learn another language. Without a release, life will almost assuredly bring you down.

9. Not bettering yourself

Life is about growing, learning, and being a better person. Never trying to improve yourself is a guaranteed path to living a completely average life. Can anyone honestly say they want an average life? Of course not.

10. Being empty inside

If you are walking around feeling like there is something missing in your life, you are far from being alone. Sadly, many people will spend their lives feeling this way. Some fill this void with religion, some fill it by having children, and some even fill it with drugs or alcohol.
