A loser in life

One of the most ridiculous articles I ever read was about some politician.

Supposedly he’d won a seat in the parliament after the elections were over. Usually, people like him would’ve been joyous and would have celebrated a lot. But in his case, that didn’t happen. In fact, the guy said he would resign from politics and denounce his parliamentary seat. I didn’t even know that was possible.

Anyway, the reason why he resigned?

He was being mocked, spat on, got hateful comments thrown in his face, both online and offline.

In other words, he was dealing with people. And people aren’t nice. Especially if you’re a politician. They’re gonna come right for you.

Now, all this makes me wonder.

Is the fella cut for politics at all? Because, let’s say he became the Minister of Foreign Affairs one day. He’d have to travel abroad and have anything but pleasant conversations with counterparts that may have bad intentions.

You think he’d survive such meetings if he couldn’t handle some losers making fun of his age and looks?

For what it’s worth, he looked completely normal. Not overweight, not particularly ugly.

So it’s all inside his head.

Defeated by his own emotions.

And that sums up how most people are nowadays.

Afraid of doing anything that’s uncomfortable where they must push themselves. Endure scornful comments. Do the grunt work that nobody else wants to do.

But if you want to level up in life and become successful, that’s part of it.

I talk about it in my consults a lot.
