“The fishing is best where the fewest go, and the collective insecurity of the world makes it easy for people to hit home runs while everyone else is aiming for base hits. There is just less competition for bigger goals. If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is, too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think.” ––Timothy Ferriss
The reality is, life is hard,..it’s always been hard, not matter who you are. Nothing is as it seems and I think the worst torture is believing that someone who seems to have it all together is problem-free, issue and stress free. It is not the case, there are simply some people who fake it til they make it, some people who deny it and some people who have a half glass full perspective and could probably survive through most of your worst case scenarios’s and still eventually bounce back to their normal happy self.
It’s like an addiction. “If you want to get better, you have to do the work” quoted from the show “Rehab” with Dr.Drew Pinksy. If you want to be truly better, you have to work to get over the mountain even when you are not confident that the answer exists beyond that mountain.
Because it’s the actual act of discipline, and drive of wanting to be better that teaches you to be strong and builds back your dignity and self respect, not what’s actually behind the mountain.
So, stick it out, and fight your way through the dark clouds…until you get to the beautiful vanilla clouds and thats where you will find me, with very big sunglasses on and a huge pina colado 🙂 xo
