Tim Ferris wrote those words.
Really why would anyone do that?
"Many people will choose unhappiness over uncertainty"
This statement rings a lot because i see it everyday.
"Seun, this is not America o, neither is it some western country"
"But why would you continue with this?"
"Guy, there's no job outside"
"So, you'd rather choose unhappiness"
"If that's what you call it"
I once worked in a place where the staffs weren't getting paid. About two months.
Only one of us in the tech team had the guts to put in a resignation letter, even though he hadn't gotten another job then.
The rest of us, continued resuming 9am like nothing's missing.
What happened, has the broken system drained peoples courage?
Why do we slaughter our dreams daily for a piece of bread?
Are we spineless or we are actually smart?
Could it be the fear of losing something (job, community, friends etc)?
Or the fear of losing money?
Or the fear of being jobless? Or the shame of joblessness?
Or the fear of starting out?
Why are we not afraid of not starting out?
Why doesn't it scare us to go through life never pursuing what we really believed in?
Why don't we see this as it is, a well executed self-sabotage?
