Do you ever feel like you have to be the best at something to succeed at it? I know I do. I keep feeling like I should give up in specific areas of my life because I have not mastered it.
I get caught thinking that if I am not perfect or the best, then I should give up now because I will never get there. The reality is that you don’t become the best by starting that way. Success is also not measured by whether you are the best or not.
This fear of failure and lack of mastery makes me want to quit before I have really even begun. I self-sabotage so that I don’t have to fail, I simply quit. Unfortunately, doing this only prevents me from mastering anything or seeing things through.
If you want to become a master of your craft or passion, you have to try. If you never let yourself learn or stumble, you will never become the best. Success is what you make of it.
My goal is to keep pushing forward. My goal is to become the best version of myself by not giving up on my dreams. Sometimes you have to change your definition of success to truly succeed.
