What do you have to prove?
I’ve told people I have a lot to prove, not to you, but to myself. I have set these lifelong goals and they aren’t easy on purpose (see my About section).
These goals require me to prove to myself I can accomplish them in order to say I lived a life worth living.
For the life of me, I can’t agree with those who say they have nothing to prove.
What that feels like, is fear has a strong grip on you and you’re worried about failing, scared to be judged by others, and don’t want to start at the “bottom.”
I’ve failed my way to where I am today and I don’t call where I am today a “success.”
Literally, I’m just getting started and each day I have something to prove to myself, can I live up to my full potential?
Some days I absolutely fail and that is when I’m disgusted with myself because I know I can do and have done better. Other days, I absolutely crush it and feel satisfied that I truly gave it my all.
What I’m learning about the value of life is that when we truly apply ourselves mentally, physically, and spiritually every day, we have a sense of accomplishment that nothing can touch.
Which means, each day you have something to prove, can you reach that feeling at a minimum?
