Why Grilled Cheese Lovers Are Better At Life

Why Grilled Cheese Lovers Are Better At Life

There’s nothing better than the comfort of a warm grilled cheese sandwich. There’s a lot we can learn from those who, in their adult years, still yearn for grilled cheese.

Cheese Can Have a Drug-like Effect

Studies show that cheese has euphoric, opioid-like effects. While I’m no biologist, I’d say this is probably the equivalent of a healthy pick-me-up in modest quantities. Of course, there is some discussion in The Daily Mail that some people could even become addicted to cheese.

Grilled Cheese Lovers Have More Sex

According to research performed by Skout, grilled cheese lovers have a more active sex life. Thirty-two per cent of grilled cheese eaters have sex at least 6 times per month, whereas only 27% of non-grilled cheese eaters have sex that often. Perhaps it’s that aforementioned opioid-like effect that gets people in the mood. Or, perhaps the playful mind of a grilled cheese eater is more likely to pursue sexual amusement.

Grilled Cheese Lovers Give More to Charity

Another fact discovered by Skout is that 81% of the people who love grilled cheese say they give their time and money to charity versus 66% of those who do not. Perhaps grilled cheese eaters are more empathetic. Their desire to connect with the gooey, cheesy joy of their childhood opens their mind to the happiness of other children. This is unlike the grilled cheese haters who are too busy being adults all the time and can’t see past their own daily hustle.

Grilled Cheese Lovers are More Adventurous

Skout also suggested that 84% of grilled cheese lovers are more likely to do adventurous things or travel, compared to 78% of those who dislike grilled cheese. If you’re willing to embrace the excitement of your favorite childhood sandwich, you’ll likely also be daring enough to seek a bit more out of life.

Toast is Better Than Bread for Level-Headedness

According to Live Strong, toasted bread has a lower glycemic index than normal bread. This helps you avoid spikes in blood sugar levels. So, perhaps choosing grilled cheese over a traditional sandwich has a tiny effect on keeping people more levelheaded under pressure, and less nervous when approaching ambitious projects.

If You’re Too Strict to Eat Grilled Cheese, You’re Too Strict to Risk Failure

Wouldn’t it feel a little bit silly if your professor or your company’s executives caught you, the serious and dignified adult that you are, eating some crazy, fat-filled melted grilled cheese sandwich? Certainly, you should have adult food. Or at least demonstrate health consciousness.

To the grilled cheese haters, it’s a matter of self-discipline: If you’re not being perfectly astute with what you eat, then what else might you drop?

However, people who are good at life understand the need for balance and embrace the risk of a bad self-image. If you can’t take the self-image of being a childish grilled cheese gobbler, then you’re probably unwilling to abandon your current life’s path to try something new, since you’re unwilling to deal with failure.

Grilled Cheese Lovers are in Touch with What They Love

As people get older, they tend to fall into life’s busy routine. Initially, people start by dreaming of things they love — travel, creative projects, and big ideas. But as life goes on, people obtain more responsibilities and have bills to pay. We run out of time and slowly lose touch with what triggers our happiness.

Grilled cheese lovers don’t forget. They remember their brief passion for grilled cheese. If they remember this, they also remember other things they love; they are people who are in touch with their passions and are more likely to take steps to make those passions reality.

Grilled Cheese Lovers Cherish Playfulness

One key to being a happy adult is to play. Being totally serious and mature 24 hours per day is a terrible burden, but many people have simply forgotten how to be any different. If you eat grilled cheese, you cherish something a little less mature. Odds are good that a grilled cheese eater has more of a playful side.

Quit Your Job If You Don’t Like It, No Matter What

Quit Your Job If You Don’t Like It, No Matter What

Do you know that feeling? The one where you have to wake up to go to your boring 9-5 job to work with the same boring colleagues who don’t appreciate what you do.

I do, and that’s why I’ve decided to quit my job and follow my passion. This, however, requires a solid plan and some guts.

The one who perseveres doesn’t always win. Sometimes life has more to offer when you quit your current job. Yes, I know. It’s overwhelming and scary.

People who quit are often seen as ‘losers’. They say: “You should finish what you’ve started”.

I know like no other that quitting your job can be very stressful. A dozen questions come up when you’re thinking about quitting your job, most starting with: What if?

Advertising

“What if I don’t find a job I love and regret quitting my current job?”
“What if I can’t find another job and I get in debt because I can’t pay my bills?”
“What if my family and friends judge me and disapprove of the decisions I make?”
“What if I quit my job to pursue my dream, but I fail?

After all, if you admit to the truth of your surroundings, you’re forced to acknowledge that you’ve made a wrong decision by choosing your current job. But don’t forget that quitting certain things in life can be the path to your success!

One of my favorite quotes by Henry Ford:

If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.

Everything takes energy

Everything you do in life takes energy. It takes energy to participate in your weekly activities. It takes energy to commute to work every day. It takes energy to organize your sister’s big wedding.

Each of the responsibilities we have take a little bit of our energy. We only have a certain amount of energy a day, so we have to spend it wisely.  Same goes for our time. The only things we can’t buy in this world are time and energy. Yes, you could buy an energy drink, but will it feel the same as eight hours of sleep? Will it be as healthy?

The more stress there is in your life, the less focus you have. This will weaken your results.

Find something that is worth doing

Do you have to quit every time the going gets touch? Absolutely not! You should quit when you’ve put everything you’ve got into something, but don’t see a bright future in it.

When you do something you love and that has purpose in your life, you should push through and give everything you have.

I find star athletes very inspiring. They don’t quit till they step on that stage to receive their hard earned gold medal. From the start, they know how much work its going to take and what they have to sacrifice.

When you do something you’re really passionate about, you’re not in a downward spiral. Before you even start you can already see the finish line. The more focus you have for something, the faster you’ll reach the finish.

It is definitely possible to spend your valuable time on something you love and earn money doing it. You just have to find out how — by doing enough research.

Other excuses I often hear are:

“But I have my wife and kids, who is going to pay the bills?”
“I don’t have time for that, I’m too busy with… stuff” (Like watching TV for 2 hours every day.)
“At least I get the same paycheck every month if I work for a boss.”
“Quitting my job is too much risk with this crisis.”

I understand those points. But if you’ve never tried it, you’ll never know how it could be. The fear of failure keeps people from stepping out of their comfort zone.

Advertising

I’ve heard many people say, “I work to let my children make their dream come true”. I think they should rephrase that sentence to: “I pursue my dreams — to inspire and show my children anything is possible.” 

Conclusion

Think carefully about what you spend your time on. Don’t waste it on things that don’t brighten your future. Instead, search for opportunities. And come up with a solid plan before you take any impulsive actions.

Only good things happen outside of your comfort zone.

Do you dare to quit your job for more success in life?
