Check that. The guy has a good job that he does well. He owns his own home and has a retirement plan in place.
He has his life together.
But coming from the perspective of a guy with a teaching career, a writing career, a small ministerial career, as well as the owner of a small business(and the desire to become a life coach and a jumper-talker-downer as well), I feel like he is wasting his talents.
Unsurprisingly, he disagrees.
One of our mutual friends find his lack of motivation baffling, so I put a list of reasons why he is unmotivated.
I have since reviewed the life with my friend and he concedes all points. And it occurs to me that it is a fairly comprehensive list of reasons why someone might not be motivated.
Here is the list:
- He was adored by his parents and raised in a loving and supportive household, therefore he does not feel the need to prove his worth to the world.
- He was an only child. Therefore he did not need to compete for attention at a young age.
- He does not place a high value on material possessions. He is content with simple pleasures.
- While not financially well off, he is financially secure.
- He possesses a strong sense of self and cares little for what others may think of him.
- He is divorced with no intention of remarrying, so he has no need to impress a woman.
It really is the perfect storm for contentment, or from my perspective, a lack of motivation.
Anything from the list that I might be missing?
