Are you a Rat Racer? You know, someone who wholeheartedly embraces the rat race? We’re all born having made unconscious agreements to run the race to get good grades, get a good job, make a lot of money, marry the right person, etc., etc. but do we every really stop and ask ourselves if it’s worth it?
Cuz like Lily Tomlin said, even if you win the rat race, you’re still a rat.
In this episode I argue that the rat race, if you actually perform well and make enough money, you can at least feel SAFE, meaning you meet all your basic biological needs. But what about your emotional needs? What about being loved and belonging? The rat race doesn’t even address those things – unless you believe that money can buy them. And, well, the Beatles say they can’t, so there’s that.
I hope you agree that we need to improve our system if we want to live fulfilled lives, and I even offer a few ways we can do that. Hope you enjoy and leave me some comments if you like!
