Someone always wants what you have. It’s one of my mantras.
I coined it when I was trying to sell my family’s business and a so-called investment banker told me it was nearly impossible, no one would be interested in our company’s profile.
Well, someone was. And, turns out I only needed one buyer to seal the deal. I’ve worked in marketing and sales my whole life, I know about human wantings and needs, believe me.
That’s why I know you want many, many things, you sometimes (maybe too often) wish to be in someone else’s shoes. There’s always someone prettier, sexier, richer, more successful. These desires often bring anxiety, self-doubt, and even depression.
But, have you ever stopped to think who wants what you have? Don’t tell me no one. There’s always someone. Whether you live in a big house in the suburbs, or in a small loft in a cosmopolitan city, there’s always someone moving towards where you are. To someone, you seem happier, smarter, cooler, creative, more successful.
So, tell me: who wants what you have? Being aware of this is another way to practice gratitude.
For someone out there, you’re awesome. Stop judging yourself so hard!
