Are You Avoiding Pain or Seeking Pleasure?

avoid-pain-seek-pleasureAll human beings do things to avoid pain and bring pleasure.

All of us!

Succeeding online in this industry is not easy (but it’s achievable for every one who is willing to give it their all) and that is a given!

But the people who allow themselves to succeed (breakthrough) are avoiding Pain big time!

Here’s what I mean:

  1. I think you should be creating longer videos once you already have a huge following but if you’re starting out it’s better to make it short so people can immediately have a gauge on you.

      Just go for it! For me it would mean tons of pain if I let myself fail instead of taking the ‘consistent’ action that I need to keep moving forward. Thank you Lorraine!

  2. Hey Rory, I hear ya about trying to create shorter videos. I also find it hard to get my point across in a 2 to 3 minute video, lol….You are right about people trying to tip toe into their business so that they don’t get hurt. I feel that is the only way we grow and move our businesses forward…

  3. We as Humans are Hard wired to avoid pain at any cost and We dont necessarily seek the pleasure because usually there is a price to pay and It could be painful 🙂

    With regards to video. I shoot em and pack em as full if value as I can period. 🙂 I dont think I can learn much from 3 minute videos. They are meant to pique my interest as opposed to teaching me something deeper. So I go seeking for the bigger loaf 🙂

      You’re right on both points. And yes videos with more content in them will actually help the person watching them as opposed to trying to please them. Pleasing them keeps them stuck in comfort. Thank you Julie!

  4. You have to know your goals. If you don’t know where you want to be in 5 years and if you don’t have a plan to get there, Then you are already there. Thank you for sharing.

  5. I love this topic Rory and have heard many debates on the moving to pleasure or avoiding pain topic. I have heard people say you do one or the other, meaning you are a person who moves towards pleasure of does what they can to avoid pain. I get your point that people do not have the success they want because they avoid pain. Maybe the pain needs to be bad enough in a life for people to take action. It is a great topic.

    I won’t say a word about your video length. 🙂 Thanks for a great message Rory.
