A Feeling Of Unworthiness

A Feeling Of Unworthiness

Feelings of being unworthy and a burden on others can be common among people. It is usually a mixture of low self-esteem and introvertedness, coupled with a tendency to not express one’s feelings, and keeping them bottled up.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

The error that we make is identifying ourselves with our emotions. We are by ourselves perfect, but we were never told this. Our feelings are not us. Our fear is a separate entity, which we can handle, and tame. We feel angry but cannot become anger ourselves.

Our feeling of unworthiness is due to our mistakenly identifying the rising and falling emotions as facts.

IDEAS

There are no bad emotions

Emotions are not “bad” or “good” but simply “comfortable” or “uncomfortable.” And even uncomfortable emotions (like sadness, anger etc) help us point issues we ignored about ourselves.

Introduction - What is Possible?
  1. Imagine one thing for a minute: a working week of only four hours. Don’t worry; the idea is that you’d still be making enough money. You’ll be working less, but you’ll be more productive.
  2. What would you do with the time you have left? Movies. A book. Maintaining friendships and family values. Every day would be like a mini vacation if you followed the 4-hour workweek.
  3. Timothy Ferriss, an American author and entrepreneur, says that is possible. His book, The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich, changed many people’s lives.
  4. In its basis, The 4-Hour Workweek is a productivity concept. The author himself tested it. He went from making $40,000 per year on an 80-hour workweek to making $40,000 per month on a 4-hour workweek.
  5. When I read the book, I realized it was more realistic and actionable than I expected.
