Episode 71: Flip Your FOMO
Updated: Sep 4, 2019
What are you afraid of missing out on?
F.O.M.O - Fear Of Missing Out.
I had a revelation recently. We all waste so much time being afraid of missing out on the social situations of today. We see posts on social media of our friends and acquaintances "living out their best lives" and, even though these moments are often exaggerated or even fabricated, they cause us to lose sight of what's actually happening all around us.
I propose a slight, yet significant, shift in this way of thinking.
What if, instead of focusing on what we think we're missing out on based on what others share of their lives, we flip this FOMO, this fear, to focus on our future? Instead of being afraid on missing out on the short-sighted moments of today, think about what you'll miss out on if you don't put your energy toward moving forward.
