Just being a good person, studying well, doing well, or trying well isn't enough. If you set yourself a box of "good", then you will remain mediocre in everything from work to personal life. It is not enough to be good in this practical and cruel world, whatever you think. The world and the people around you deeply do not care that you are a good person.
If life is not going well, then it may be that you are not trying enough. Do you think that you are generally a good and good guy? But this world does not need gray, ordinary, mediocre and good people who have nothing to offer in return. It's not enough to be a nice nice guy so you don't think. Take off your rose-colored glasses of naivety and look at this world in an adult way.
Employers, girls, friends will not fight for you. Nobody cares about you if you're just a good person. Nobody needs grayness, so that you don't think of it for yourself. The world will revolve around you, and everyone will be indifferent to you. Someone will ride a cool sports car, while others will be on a bike, skateboard or bus. Here is the difference between good and excellent.
A good person is not a profession
Americans have a great saying, "Okay, that's the dumb cousin of mediocrity." Every time you try to be just good, do good, and set the box of “good,” you are on the losing side. Nobody wants such mediocre people. The world needs the excellent and the best, not the ordinary.
It's time to remember that just a "good person" is not needed by anyone in this world. On the territory of the former USSR, there is a well-known phrase, similar in meaning: "A good person is not a profession." It was paraphrased from a feuilleton by Ilf and Petrov published in the Pravda newspaper in 1934, although it sounded a little different there (“Love for Soviet power is not a profession”).
There is no such vacancy in any "good man" company. There is no such desire for people to be friends or to meet girls with a "good man". The world is cruel and harsh, and it doesn't really need good people. The world will judge you by completely different rules. What can you give him? How are you really valuable and different? What can you do, what do you know and how professional are you? If you're just a mediocre and good person, then who needs you?
How to be better than just a good person?
Consider that being good in life is not enough to succeed in life. You have to be better and more than good. You need to be brighter, stronger, smarter, more professional. You can lock yourself in your inner world and take offense at the whole world, but he doesn't care. If you can only offer mediocrity, then why are you to him? Get a poor and miserable life, but unworthy of more.
1. Fight to be the best
Nothing is given to anyone just like that, and exceptions only confirm the rules. If you want to change something, then you need to stop settling for the "good" level. You always have to fight for the "best" place under the sun, and not settle for the "good". If you agree to be ordinary, you will get even less than you expect and what you want.
2. Improve and stay hardworking
Always stay on the lookout for your best self. Read books, get an education, complete courses, gain experience, do self-education. Always look for ways to be better than yesterday. If you're just a good guy, then employers, friends, or girls don't need you. They are looking for the best who are smart, professional, athletic and well-rounded. The world needs professionals, not amateurs and simpletons.
3. Don't complain and feel sorry for yourself
Many people say that they are so good, and they have had so many trials in their lives. But no one cares. Everyone has their own difficulties and problems, and your snot is not interesting to anyone. You can whine, say that you are so good, but who helped? Nobody. If you cannot give the world something in return, then nobody needs you. Stop feeling sorry for yourself when you need to look for ways to get better.
4. The world is cruel
Do you think that in the world there are benefits for good people and help from above? All wrong. Even in the Bible in the Gospel of Matthew it is said: "There is already an ax at the ready by the tree trunk: a tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire." If you cannot give anything in return to the world, like a tree of good fruits, you will be cut down and thrown into the fire.
It's not enough to be good in this cruel world. So let go of illusion and naivety. It's not enough to be good …
