And I began to flip my mindset from the need and desire to compete with them, and instead chose to try and learn from them. And only then did I start to learn. See I think once we can swallow a big fat pill of humility and focus on getting better, not getting mad, only then will we ever succeed.
See if you are anything like me, you believe in working hard. You will go go go go until you break down and then watch some motivational YouTube videos and after that, go go go go again. This process repeats over and over into a cycle of big ambitions and little to nothing actually getting done. Not to mention, you will end up stressed out, anxious and most likely pretty lonely. Yet, so many of us live our lives this way! So focused on working hard that we destroy ourselves and the people around us. And for what? A few extra dollars? I think the simple truth is WE ALL NEED BALANCE.
I think we need to realize that LOVE IS A SKILL just like anything else. And if we want to get better, we just have to practice. We have to stop hiding behind the excuses that we are shy, awkward or just don’t know how. Even the most charismatic and loving people once were not confident in their craft.
