The problem with toxic self-improvement
-It doesn't align with personal belief
-It comes from comparison
-Extrinsic motivation is doomed to fail
-There are no parameters
There you are coming to the end of a hectic day, you just somehow made it through, then bam you realize you forgot to invest £10k this month. Horror! In what, you ask? I don't know but the random Business guru with his menacing folded arms and a smug smile on Instagram tells you to.
This is a topic that has irked me for some time now, I call it “toxic self-improvement” .
You may have already been ambushed by a total random entrepreneur man. He has a lovely smiling face but has a list of demands which are almost laughable:
10 goals before the age of 30:
Start investing 10K / month
Read 4 books/month
Wake up early every day
Become a millionaire
Take a trip around the world
Own 5 different homes
Have more than 5 streams of income
Exercise 10 hours a week
Pay off all debts
Learn something new every day
All of these goals are verbatim from the post.
