There’s only so much time in a day, in a year, and in a lifetime.
Which means for a limited time only, you have a choice. And that choice is either to learn to accept yourself (shortcomings et al.) or to let insecurity allow you to hide.
The first one is really hard. Nobody wants to face the things that haunt them, and it’s challenging to intentionally create short term friction in return for long term benefits.
But again since our time is so limited, it’s the only thing worth doing that’s left.
We’ve all got something to say.
Even if we feel like what we say doesn’t really matter, we still have something we want to share. Sometimes it doesn’t matter whether if it comes out rough, rugged around the edges, or through bits and fragments at a time.
Everybody has something to say, everybody has something they want to share.
And, if it makes it any easier, there are unlimited chances to get it right so it doesn’t have to be perfect the first time.
There’s nothing more tried and true than practice.
The decision for commitment is easy. You either promise to stay the course for as long as it takes, or you don’t.
Commitments don’t have to be perfect but the key is to arrive everyday, especially on the days when you feel under the weather or if you believe it’s not going to be a good day.
Rough is okay. Even terrible is okay. The commitment doesn’t care about quality.
A commitment is just you doing it again, and again, and again so that somewhere down the line you can look back and say it wasn’t luck, or it wasn’t smarts, nor was it talent; It was just a skill being practiced over a long period of time.
