Everywhere we go, people say the same things:
"My life has no meaning."
"I'm such a failure. I'm no longer young, but I’ve achieved absolutely nothing in my life."
Well, there’s no point in building a Ferrari if the tank is running on empty.
The truth is, studies have shown that as humans, we are collectively facing unprecedented and historical levels of stress and nervousness. How can we possibly lead others, or perform well at home or at work, when we are pre-occupied and miserable all the time! It’s just not sustainable.
Instead of blaming others or trying to control external circumstances, perhaps it’s time for us to understand ourselves a bit better, to slow down when faced with tragedies and to refresh our core.
Maybe, now more than ever, it is time to love ourselves, and to see whether research and data can show us the way.
