4 Strategies to Overcome Fear of Missing Out (FOMO)

Life is full of adventures, opportunities, memories and more. Fear of missing out, a.k.a. FOMO, is very normal and common, especially for millennials growing up in a world with social media exposing our daily lives all around the world in just a matter of seconds.

When your friends are traveling around the world, getting promotions at work, buying houses, getting married, building families and it seems like you haven’t done shit with your life, think about this:

  1. You do You — Everyone comes from a different background with their own bank of experiences. Some people are born rich and have the luxury of living a spoiled life, others are born on the streets and go through some of the harshest life challenges before hitting puberty. Those things are out of anyone’s control. What we can control and be responsible for is how to live our own lives. In other words, you’re in charge of who you are and who you become. Once you adopt this attitude, nothing in life will slow you down while striving to be the best you you can be.

It is easy to want what we don’t have, especially if it seems like everyone else has it. Understand that you are not alone in feeling that way but your perspective and mindset is what will help determine whether you keep feeling it or move on. Keep in mind we all have our own paths to success and success means different things for everyone. Just keep swimming.
