Most have probably heard the term before and know what it means but unfortunately don’t know how to get out of this trap. But the answer has never been more simple. Just ask, “are you happy with yourself?” Looks like Beyoncé was definitely spitting some hot bars on Pretty Hurts, but seriously, if the answer is no, then you know something’s got to change. And that will be one of the most difficult decisions you’ll have to make.

Now hold up there! I’m not suggesting that you quit your job or anything like that but instead start making some smarter decisions. Use the rat race to power your passions and dreams and to feed them until they become a reality. If music or fashion or modeling is the dream, then pursue it as your main goal to which your “main” rat race job becomes a side hustle to keep your passions alive and growing. Sometimes, all it takes to fix a problem is a change in perspective and state of mind.

You can be anything you want to be but just start investing more into your dream. After all, the true meaning of success and happiness isn’t found within money or other superficial and materialistic things but is found in inner fulfillment. To be able to wake up every morning to do what you absolutely love – now that’s happiness. Never get it twisted! Now with that said, stop reading this article and go do something!
