Living life to the fullest without restrictions. Having the time and money is all part of living the dot com lifestyle. Sounds lavish, extravagant, and carefree, but did you know that stress is required for success?
And yes, living the dot com lifestyle is far more enjoyable than the typical rat race of the 9 to 5 job. Often times, we choose jobs only because of the money, not because it’s our ideal.
When you look at successful people who are worth billions of dollars, you’ll instantly assume that they are living an amazing life without stress. It’s quite common because you feel pressured and stressed when the bills arrive and you’re barely able to afford to pay it.
In fact, success = no stress is completely false. You’ll need stress to achieve success because if you’re not stressed out at all, then you’re probably not doing anything at all.
In this article, I will provide you with an important tip to keep your stress level at a moderate level, so you can achieve maximum success. Without further ado, let’s get started!
Tip: Keep A Balance And Push Forward
This is where the concept of Yin-Yang comes into play. The illustration below shows both calm and stress.
It’s not unreasonable to think that someone living the dot com lifestyle is on the calm side of the yin-yang. It’s easy to assume that the person living the dot com lifestyle is time, money, and location free, so what kind of stress can that person face?
But the thing is, if your life is too calm and easy then there’s no motivation to do better. That’s why people who are successful are not only calm, but they are also stressed at the same time.
Now, in contrast, someone who is in the rat race working a regular 9 to 5 job. They’re constantly fighting for advancements, raises, deadlines, customer satisfaction, etc. This group of people usually falls more under the stressed side of the yin-yang. Due to the amount of stress, it actually affects their performance.
With a moderate amount of stress paired with calmness will provide you with challenges, but it will be far more enjoyable. Whether it is blogging, making money online, running a brick and mortar business. You should always challenge yourself to do better with the right amount of stress.
Stress Is A Tool, So Utilize It!
For example, a car is a tool that gets you from point A to point B. It’s an amazing tool that has allowed us to get from place to place super efficiently. Unfortunately, the more you drive your car, the more it degrades whether it is the overall value or the mechanical parts that make the car operate properly.
However, if you don’t drive your car, it will never serve its purpose. What’s the point of buying a car to get from point A to point B if you just leave it in your garage all the time?
The best way to approach this is to drive your car moderately! Not only will your car serve its purpose, but you will also get some exercise for walking instead of driving all the time. Stress works the exact same way.
