Im addicted to self-improvement content and not ashamed to admit it. I’ve been consuming it since the beginning of the pandemic. It all started because I wanted to be more disciplined and not go crazy during the lockdown. Little by little, I was looking for new goals, how to find my purpose, know what motivates me, and even find happiness in my life.

I have consumed countless books, videos, podcasts, and courses, but I still don’t know what motivates me to get out of bed in the morning. I feel like life is slipping through my fingers. I am no happier than I used to be, quite the opposite.

So, what happened?

The internet can be your ally or your worst enemy.

Nowadays, we can get everything through the internet. We can create businesses, communicate with our family members, or learn new skills. Awesome right? Well, yes and no. We all have to use the internet consciously. Know what content and how much to consume.

It is simple to fall into an overload of information that, instead of helping, will only saturate us. We have the opportunity to see how other people’s lives are perfect, while ours is full of flaws and possible improvements.
