How to get rid of the Rat Race?
Are you living the life of your dreams? Are you often stressed out? Do you have the feeling that your life has become monotonous, that you're running from one task to another. Are you controlling your life or is life controlling you? Are you able to balance your professional and personal life?
People are trapped in repetitive cycle of going to work and paying bills. Many of us are in debt and can’t afford to quit working anytime soon. This never-ending cycle is something which we refer to as the rat race. I think the problem of the rat race comes from the influence of media and our materialistic mindset, created by the society around us.
“The trouble with being in the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat.” ― Lily Tomlin
