How often do we ask ourselves – Why Not Me?
Witnessing a fellow colleague being promoted or even seeing a friend getting married (when we are still single) may be a couple of examples that trigger us to ask ourselves the question – Why Not Me?
This is just a different variation of common questions we ask when we compare ourselves to others. We tend to feel sorry for ourselves because that is the easiest way to get out of the situation. The world at large is very selfish in nature and the best way to avoid taking ownership of situations is to convince ourselves that “it is not my problem”.
The corporate world can be filled with people who wants recognition, power, and glory but most are not willing to work for it.
It is very common to see people who are reluctant to speak up but have so much desires hidden in their hearts.
Most of us have aspirations and inspirations to be “somebody” but the small seed of doubt will always make us recoil into our fearful self.
I believe that no one have the rights to ask “Why Not Me” when he/she do not at least work towards achieving his/her goals. I have seen first hand the type of employees that are resentful and envious when others do better than them. That is just because they have not made their goals and desires known to their superiors and seek assistance in attaining them.
Up to this point in my life, I have never encountered anyone who can read my mind and likewise, no one will know the problems others are facing or the desires of someone else’s heart if they are kept to oneself. When things do not go in accordance to his/her way, no one should be blamed except oneself.
Most of us are always quietly seeking affirmation and validation but I believe that should not be the way. One must be clear in knowing what he/she wants, seek or work towards the objectives/goals and then claim the fruit of his/her labour when the hard work pays off.
“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.” ~ Matthew 7:7
