To be lethargic is another way to describe one’s sluggish actions. It is the by-product of a loss of motivation, whether due to physical fatigue or a deeper mental state. It is a prominent problem among today’s society, especially the portion aspiring to break barriers and become great. In a summary of the words of Tai Lopez, lethargy operates in a cycle that often continues to loop around in people lives who don’t know how to escape.
Many of you may have witnessed a man named Tai Lopez scattered around YouTube, famous for constantly preaching about his Lambo and Ferrari filled garage. From Lopez, people have coined the phrase “Here in my new Garage” due to the numerous times that he has made the statement. Many people view him as a con artist who rents out his cars, but talk is cheap. He is actually a very successful investor, entrepreneur, and book fanatic known for reading at least one book a day. Tai Lopez is also an amazing public speaker and huge inspiration to entrepreneurs of all ages. With as much wisdom as he has gained in his lifetime, he always has priceless information to offer.
In one of Lopez’s former Podcasts, his episode from Feb. 16th to be exact, he comes to the realization of how widespread depression and anxiety are within the world. By doing a simple Google Search, you will find that depression receives an overwhelming amount of searches periodically. Through a small 3 minute episode he lays out this “lethargy cycle”. In short, it explained why people are not necessarily to blame when they fall victim to depression or poverty. This cycle runs on its own fuel in a difficult never-ending loop. Emotionally, something bad may happen in your life that causes you to go into a depression. Before you know it, this depression has robbed you of both your energy and motivation. The result? You fall into a deeper depression and the process repeats. Lopez also states that this concept applies to finance, usually with new entrepreneurs. They make a mistake and go broke. Although common, many fail to react appropriately. People will become depressed because they have just become broke. The challenge that they face is the fact that when you don’t have money, you can’t invest in yourself, which is a key to building wealth. The final result? These same people now remain both depressed and poor.
So how do you end this seemingly everlasting loop? By simply having a deeper understanding of your situation. Take a step outside of yourself in order to reevaluate your current standing as if you were studying the life of another. Chances are, you are not as bad off as you may have once believed. Lopez states that when you come to these points of depression in your life, your body is simply letting you know that you are not doing the right thing. For those financially troubled, you may be in the right path, but you may actually be approaching it the wrong way. Listen to your body and take the time to identify your weaknesses. By doing so, you give yourself the opportunity to strengthen them and eliminate the possibility of returning to that previous state. If you have any advice to share, feel free to comment below!
