We are an everything or nothing society. We either want everything now, or in our minds, we might as well have nothing.
We are never happy until we have everything we want. This is an important mental factor to be aware of in our society. It can explain a lot of behavior. I believe most people forget about it, probably because they’re guilty of it themselves..even me.
But where does this mentality come from, and what harm, if any, can it do?
Sure, some people may claim that having that mindset only pushes people to do their best all the time, and strive harder for what they want, but is this really true?
