Aspiration Is Pointless


We are a culture obsessed with an insatiable need to look perfect, yet very few are, most of us just day dream about a life of “if onlys”. Spending 10,000 pounds to get your teeth fixed is pointless if you are not happy and never smile.

The truth is the patterns we have embedded into our lives have clouded everything that is real leaving us a nation of disillusioned and disappointed people. Happiness cannot be bought, manufactured or found in any high street store. Happiness cannot be found by looking like your favourite celebrity or copying how they dress. You cannot have Jordan’s life no matter how hard you try it is already taken and belongs only to her, the product of her own creation.

“You have your own life so get on with it. Aspiration is pointless.”

If Brad Pitt treats himself to a A�50 million yacht you can bet George Clooney will pull up next to him in a A�100 million yacht, bigger, faster and more flash. Aspiring to something materially to make you who you are is pointless and will leave you with a huge dose of “Status Anxiety”

“No one cares what colour your sofa is.”

If a short millionaire playboy with no hair or teeth driving a flash red Ferrari asked you on a date ask yourself would you consider the man without the car and the money?

“There’s only one thing to aspire to today, to be the best you can be from the inside out.”

Aspiration has got us nowhere except in debt. There is no point buying 10 ballgowns with matching bag and shoes if you never go to ball.

“You might look a little out of place down the chippy.”

Aspiring to look like an airbrushed model on TV who says she looks fantastic because she eats a certain brand of cereal is pointless if you are a size 20 and prefer 10 slices of buttered toast for breakfast.

There is no instant fix to a perfect life but one thing we can be sure of, happiness comes from being yourself.
