I Make A Lot Of Money.. Why Am I Still Depressed?

You’re probably one of those people who are unable to enjoy the moment.

You might be asking yourself, ‘How do I get past this?’

‘How do I change that part of the mindset..’ 

Some days you feel good but then some other times, you’re still getting episodes of emotional breakdown..

Most people who I’ve talked to experienced a certain level of fear, afraid that depression would be another recurring thing.

You know for yourself that if you could get past this, you can literally go to the next level!

In today’s video, we’re gonna talk about how to overcome depression forever!

I’ve been through this since I was 18 years old.

I saw my parents struggle and just trying to figure out a way to make money and I came to a point of realizing that money can never actually make me happy. 

Are you still feeling depressed even if you're already making enough money? Find out in today's  article/vlog how Mike Vestil tackles the solution to getting rid of depression!

It was actually love and connection, and surrounding myself around amazing human beings.

And here’s what I want you to understand..

The thing that literally changed everything, from health, wealth, love, and happiness..

I’m talking about human fulfillment, growth, and a lot more loving connection in my life including passionate relationships. .


Probably right now, one of you here are already getting some successes in the “immediate future,” like in the next 30 to 90 days.

And that’s good!

But realize this, you don’t just optimize for the next 30 to 90 day happiness..

We’re in the business of optimizing for a lifelong happiness.


You need to create and craft the perfect vision of how you want your life to be and the type of person you want to become.

This isn’t without the highs and lows of success and achievements, of failures and successes. 

It’s five to ten years down the road. 

That includes the people that you’re serving, what’s your relationship look like with your parents, with your best friends?

Who’s your network?

What are you actively doing every single day?

And more importantly, how are you giving back? How are you fulfilling your soul?

Because the ultimate failure in life is success without fulfillment.

If you don’t optimize towards that fulfilment part of your life, then you can be the Scrooge McDuck on the top sitting with your gold coins..


Ask yourself questions like..

Who’s gonna come to your funeral?

Who’s gonna hang out with you? 

What’s the point in having all the money and wealth when you’re alone and everyone hates you?

It’s like me and you, and our mindsets are very similar. That’s why you’re reading this right now.

It’s just that the masculine part of your energy are never having enough!

Especially when you see other people of your age and you’re like, ‘oh man! They’re succeeding and I just feel so useless and unworthy.. I need to grind harder!’ 

What you don’t see happening is, you’re focusing too much on other people but then it’s never really actually the destination and the goals that you want.

Understand that it’s about the journey of the person who you become because you made it through!

When your focus is misplaced and you start to get used to doing that, what happens is it consumes you.

Then when you’re older, you will regret the fact that in reality, you never really created the thing that YOU actually want! 


If you think about it, the reason why we’re working so hard isn’t really just for the success.

Truth is, what we ultimately want is a fulfillment.

I don’t think people just go for happiness for happiness sake. Happiness is just a byproduct of a fulfilled life..

Being able to live life to the full with the people that you love and being able to do the things that you’re really designed to do.

Of course, you want to live a life with the right people surrounding you..

But here’s the catch guys..

The biggest thing is, sometimes it’s not their time spent with you.

Let me give you an example. .

I have a lot of close friends in Chicago and I love them to death!

I remember for the first six months of my life when I first succeeded in the online business, I’d spend everything that I could to help and get them successful.

But the problem was, even though they had all the potential to become successful, it wasn’t their time yet.


Because everyone’s on their own little timelines.

And here’s the thing, had I spent any more time focusing on people that weren’t moving in their lives, then I wouldn’t have moved into my own life on my own.

If I didn’t move in my life, how can I serve my family? How can I serve my friends?

If I didn’t move at my own pace, we would all just be stuck in the same place! 

Because the long term problem that you could expect to happen in that equation is..

It’s gonna be very hard to get to where you needed to be with your ultimate potential when you’re surrounded by friends or people who are contented to stay and get stuck in the same place.

For me, I literally took a one-way flight to Thailand and tried to build myself as much as possible.

Concerning my friends there, it’s been 2 to 3 years ever since I saw them.

And it’s only now that they’re actually starting to come up to me.

It’s only now that they’re starting to realize that they need to change, that they need to start working on themselves.

At the end of the day, it’s about having standards about what you are willing to tolerate in any of your relationships, like knowing exactly where the line is drawn.

It’s like, ‘okay! I’ll help you but I’m not gonna do it for you..’

You also gotta ask yourself about their real intention. 

Are they actually trying to better themselves or are they just trying to take advantage of you?


Though in terms of abundance, of course you get freely!

But if you’re giving freely BEFORE YOU FILL YOUR CUP, then you’re not going to do anybody a service because you’re motivating everybody..

At the end of the day, you still feel that depression inside.

So what’s the point? 

How can you truly fill everybody and bring everybody up when you’re still getting triggered by these depression episodes?

So what do you do then?

You need to focus on yourself and grow that part of your life.

Let’s say after 2 to 3 years down the road, you then bring everyone up at the same time instead of just trying to force everyone up with you..

Instead they’re just inspired now by your growth!

If you guys obtained value from this or maybe you have a question in your life a life or in business..
