This is how the professionals get trapped into SISI – Single Income, Single Identity.
A “mouse” was put at the top of a jar filled with grains.
He was too happy to find so much of food around him.
Now he doesn’t need to run around searching for food and can happily lead his life.
As he enjoyed the grains, in few days time, he reached to the bottom of the jar.
Now he is trapped and he cannot come out of it.
He has to solely depend upon someone to put grains in the same jar for him to survive.
He may even not get the grain of his choice and he cannot choose either.
If he has to live, he has to feed on whatever has been put into the jar.
Here are my top 4 lessons from this:
- Short term pleasures can lead to long-term traps.
- If things are coming easy and you are getting comfortable, you are getting trapped into survival mode.
- When you are not using your potential, you are losing it.
- If you don’t take right Action at right time, you will finish what you have and will be in no position to come out.
