True Meaning Of Life

The journey to FIRE will be in many varieties. Some take it slowly. Some take it quickly. I prefer to take it slowly and enjoy the process. Nothing beats the best on the slow and steady progress to FIRE. It took 18 years and 4 months to achieve FIRE. It’s not long or short as per my perspective. I feel good on such progress and this is the way which fits my preference. I no longer have the urge to compare with others. It is quite tiring and energy sapping comparing with other people. I do not see the need to do so. There is no need to compare with other people. People come into this world empty-handled and leave the world in the same status. This defeats the purpose of comparing with one another. The best approach is to live the life to the maximum and enjoy every moment of life.

  1. Hi WTK,

    I couldn’t agree more; so many people live their life comparing themselves to others. They want what other people have. If only they can all appreciate what they have, then they would be so much happier.



    1. Hi Alicia,

      Same sentiments, It’s all about competitions as per my perspective. I believe that this is very likely to be due to the circumstance in which people are taught to use such mentality since young, It’s the matter of seeking for the survival and end up comparing with others for more. My take is that the majority are likely to focus on this aspect instead of appreciation aspect. It will be to each of their own. People have the rights to choose their path and direction. The same applies to you and me. There is no right or wrong answer. You know of your desired direction. The same applies to me. Happiness is my upmost approach and comparison is out of my league.
