Do you feel you need to perform in a certain way or outdo practically everyone?
Life's good if you enjoy exploring.
For me, it wasn't always like this. Eight years ago, I wouldn't dream of playing like this. For training, there were only the ususal categories such as running, working in a gym or playing some sport.
Which, as I perceived things, rarely was play but rather serious work. That's when, somewhen, you concluded you must always win. Always be faster, smarter or more skilled than your competition. That then becomes everyone.
It's a tiring way of feeling. Drives you to ignore your body's signals. Had me frustrated and deeply exhausted -- cause sure enough you cannot outperform everyone. And you don't need to.
Only to recognize and embody this can be difficult. I takes you to see and appreciate what your real strengths are. What you can give to others as well as what you deeply cherish.
What's your experiences in this context? Do you feel driven? Feel you have to perform in a certain way or manage more than others in order to make your day? How does this feel like?
If you're too focused on a certain goal -- like that one technique you want to perfect or always beating your personal best -- you often end up dissatisfied:
One day it's too slippery, one day it's too cold and then, when conditions are okay you rep and hustle for that one thing and your day is dorked if you don't manage. Not to mention overdoing things till you reap dysbalances or overstrain injuries. I've been there. For years. And boy was it a bummer.
Way better to hold your goals loosely -- and eyes & heart open to whatever opportunities you encounter. <3
