Our society is so driven by achievement and success that we overlook the fundamentals of making anything happen. Everything starts with a commitment to trying. Not only that, but if you really want to give yourself your best shot at succeeding, you need to try your best - Full investment, leaving no stone unturned. But the problem is, what if you try your hardest and it’s not good enough? What does that say about you?
What happens naturally is in order to avoid that psychological vulnerability we have a tendency to protect ourselves from the very beginning by not giving things our all. This is a form of self-sabotage and it’s something many people deal with. That’s why today I beg that you have the courage to try and put yourself out there.
This is a classic example of where people should take their own advice. You’ve probably heard quotes like “the only failure is failing to try”, and you probably respect others who go for something and end up falling short. Yet when we internalize these thoughts it feels very different, uncomfortable, and unnatural. The world needs your 100%, and it would be a shame if you are holding yourself back. It takes courage to fully commit to what you believe in, but in my opinion there’s no better way to live!
To close this idea let me ask you a question to reflect on - In what area of your life do you feel like you’re going through the motions the most?
