Today, I am going to discuss some common-looking things which might force you to redefine your thought process. So, below are 8 counter-intuitive tips to live a good life;

1. Don't worship your Job:
Many people say that you should follow your passion, and always worship your job, which is not good. Let me explain why!
As you grow up, you have different things that you may like, and it's not that you will always end up like a thing for the rest of your life.

Have clear goals, and enjoy your journey in the work, but it is not recommended to worship it. There are several examples of organizations kicking off employees in the name of "streamlining their processes", even those employees who have worked with the companies for more than 3 decades (30+ Years).

Companies cannot expect employee loyalty when they are not loyal to their employees.

2. It is fine to not be fit like celebrities:
Many people around the world run behind the looks of celebrities and so-called social media influencers, without knowing that that is a reel life, and it is different from what a person or celebrity looks like in real life.

Having said that, it is always better to work out daily and have a healthy diet, but you should never get overwhelmed in your routine so that you miss out on the surprises in your life.

3. Marry an Independent/Strong Person:
I have seen several people run behind beautiful girls or boys, and don't understand that the person that you are going to spend the rest of your life with should be strong.

By strong, I don't mean Physically or Financially, but Mentally.

Your potential partner should be working, especially while looking for girls. Girls shouldn't be dependent on you. They should be able to support you and be equal to you in your journey. If you are getting looks as well as a strong personality, then you have spotted gold.

Many people, on the other hand, look for their female partners as someone who can be at home, cook for their families, and take care of children, but it is already 2022. Girls should be able to support their families and should be an asset to your personality. The same goes for vice versa.

4. Be away from toxic people in your life:
You will meet toxic people in all phases of your life, but it is on you to be with the or be away from them. This is because,

You are the average of the people you surround yourself with.

Even if they are close to you, if you think someone is draining your energy every single day, it's time to make distance from them. There are people around us, who may comment on how we dress, how we eat, or what we eat, but we should not be the victim of their ideologies, so it is better to shut them down as it will help you be in the best of your mental strength.

5. Invest in assets that put money in your pocket:
Having assets is good, but owning those assets that put money in your pocket is even better. 

Let me give you an example: Having a car or a flat may look like an asset to you, but if it's not putting money in your pocket, it is not better than a liability.

Also, how you make decisions makes all the difference. For example, if you spend 30 Lakhs on your son or daughter's marriage, it is of no use. You or your wife is not going to live with your relatives forever. It is, therefore, better to save that amount and buy a small property for your son or daughter, that will get him or her some rental income.

This will ease off their day-to-day work life, and also help them in their worst times. 

6. Learn new things every day:
I will take an example of mine only. Although I am a doctor by profession, I have started learning to blog and write articles. Because of this, I even got a chance to write for a medical journal.

You will only be able to get new opportunities like these when you continue to learn new things on a day-to-day basis. Learning never ends, and what you learn now defines what you will earn in the future.

7. Overcome Jealousy:
Being jealous has never helped anyone. But it is normal human behavior, which we cannot get rid of. Even I used to be jealous a few years back, and everyone does that. 

There will always be someone better than you.

Still, if you feel like you are not able to overcome jealousy, always connect with that person, and ask him or her, how do you do this? What is the secret of your success?

Usually, we feel jealous of people who are better than us, maybe in knowledge, money, or status. You will never be jealous of someone who is below you in every other means. But when you ask a person about the secret of their success, you start being open with yourself, and you let go of that feeling.

8. Buy Time:
This point is one of the most important ones, and many people forget the importance of their own time. If you are in a situation, where you will have to go to meet your family and also clean your home, always choose to spend time with your family.

Although they're some hidden costs related to your decisions, if you can ask someone to work at your home, and if that buys you some time, it will be one of the best investments for you.

Similarly, if you want to work on something that you are passionate about, and you can ask someone else to work on what you are currently doing for some of the work, then you should go ahead and do that because you never know what might kick off and you be the better to return of your invested time and efforts.
