Do you even want to be them?

Do you even want to be them?

We look up to our idols and think about the great accomplishments they’ve done

We think wow If only I could achieve half of what they’ve done, I’ll be a success, I’ll be happy…

But is that really true?

Elon Musk pops up a lot in my circle of conversations and yeah he’s achieved a lot,

But do you actually want to live like him, After watching/ reading several interviews from him, I don’t think he wants to be him sometimes…

Our idols have sacrificed so much to be and achieve all they have… We sometimes forget that We forget that our idols might not actually be happy…

Back to Musk in an interview, he said –

“There were times when I didn’t leave the factory for three or four days — days when I didn’t go outside,” he said. “This has really come at the expense of seeing my kids. And seeing friends.”

I want my businesses to be successful but are they a success if you have to sacrifice everything else in the process,

The point of this post is don’t base your happiness on achieving what your idols achieve, you don’t know what they have been through to get there and if you get there, How do you know you’re going to like it…
