The majority of people feel pressured and stressed at work, especially the “good” employees who thrive to be better every single day, earn a promotion, and get more success than before.
Of course, hard work pays off, but what’s the point if you are doing it on the cost of your health and mental stability?
Since we have started school, the majority of people, movies, magazines, and interviews kept telling us that no matter how much we give, we can always give more. After we graduated, everyone started telling us that working hard is the key (and the only key) to success, a better career, and more money.
It is true, they didn’t lie, but they just forgot to mention a few important things: Your life and your body!
What’s the point of success when it is foreshadowing your entire existence? What’s the point of your money when you don’t have time to spoil yourself with it? And what’s the point of a great career when you are not happy?
At some point in your life, you need to do is pause and reflect, see if what you are doing is the right thing, and if it is, then are you happy? It is time to know if you are working a little too much, taking big steps to a regretful ending.
