You only have one life to live, so you might as well go after what you want. What’s the worst that could happen? You don’t get what you want and you end up exactly where you are now. But if you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never know what could have been.
Life is all about taking risks and putting yourself out there. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. So don’t be afraid to go after your dreams. Go out and get what you want out of life. You won’t regret it.
But… Wait a minute before you do just and jump out of the door, that we’re gonna give you the only exceptions where you’d rather not go after what you want. These are the only scenarios in life where going after what you want is actually a horrible idea so read on:
4 scenarios in life where going after what you want can backfire:
1- What you want belongs to someone else:
When it comes to going after what you want in life, it’s important to consider your motivations. If what you want is someone who is already in a relationship, it’s important to ask yourself why.
Is this person truly the best possible match for you, or are you simply attracted to the idea of proving that you’re irresistible enough to shake up an already established relationship or couple? If it’s the latter, it’s important to consider the potential consequences of your actions.
Is this person so attractive that you’re willing to wreck a home and family or split up a couple just to shoot your chance at being with them? Plus if they’re so easy “to steal” what makes you think someone else in the future will not be able to steal them away from you even if they got with you?
So keep in mind that in any case, you could end up damaging your own reputation, as well as the relationships and even lives of those involved. In some cases, you might even find yourself in legal trouble if not a more sinister fate, depending on the type of people you get involved with. This is actually one of the most common subjects in real-life crime documentaries and murder cases, so be aware!
While going after what you want can be very gratifying, it’s important to make sure that what you want is actually worth pursuing and is definitely not a married man or woman.
2- Getting what you want could somehow ruin someone else’s life:
It’s tempting to go after what you want in life, regardless of the consequences, at times. But is it really worth it if it means causing someone else misery and ruining their life? The answer is clearly no.
Even in life scenarios, where the law cannot punish you or where you didn’t actually do something criminal but still got away with harming someone to your own benefit, it can easily become the subject of your nightmares and weigh heavy on your conscience.
We all think nothing can affect us much as long as we get exactly what we want. However, you’d be surprised to see how remorseful and miserable the human mind can make a person for having irreparably wronged someone else.
So, it’s better to step back and evaluate the situation before making a decision that could have a negative impact on someone else, even if it means that it will benefit you a lot. Sure, you may get what you want in the short term, become happy, and even secure yourself on many levels but is it really worth it, if it means causing someone else pain?
In the end, it’s always better to consider others before making a decision that could have a lasting impact on anyone else’s life.
3- What you want gives only a short-lived satisfaction and could have horrible long-lasting consequences:
We’ve all been there. We see something we want and we consider going after it, regardless of the possible horrible consequences. It might be something small or bigger, and it could even be something unethical that we think will be worth getting regardless of any possible negative outcome.
If this is your case, stop and think again. Is it really worth letting something so trivial and that provides only a short-lived satisfaction define you as a person and cause you more permanent bad consequences? For instance, many people have lost their lives for something as silly as wanting to take a dangerous picture for their social media, usually from a very high building looking cool and fun…
When you think about such a tragic fate, you realize that these people didn’t take the time to assess whether what they wanted was worth the horrible possible consequences. We’re all usually thinking about short-term satisfaction rather than long-term consequences. But more often than not, that’s not a good idea. Sure, we might get what we want at the moment, but if it comes with a horrible twist of fate and we lose our freedom, mobility, or even our life over it, is it really worth it?
In the end, it’s usually better to think things through and make sure we’re making the best decision for our long-term happiness rather than a short-term one. Otherwise, we might end up regretting our impulsive choice.
4- You lose more precious things by going after what you want:
Let’s say you truly have a spouse that you love and would give your all for, without hesitance. Not only that, but you also have beautiful kids with that partner, and they are your entire universe and life. But, as your marriage is going through a rough patch or as your and your partner’s intimacy is not at its peak, you consider cheating with a new young and attractive neighbor.
In this case, is the possibility of getting laid and feeling a short-timed amount of pleasure worth possibly losing your entire family and even falling into depression? Plus you probably just need to rekindle the passion that once was in your couple. You will probably see that your spouse is more than happy to revive their own senses too to the beauty of your touch and to feel wanted by you again.
So in this case or any similar scenario, think very well and realize that the things you could lose because of your poor judgment might be far more important than what you want to go after in specific scenarios of life.
