I have adapted to myself one article from one blogger (http://marinette-lucyfan.blogspot.com/)...that I really agree:
To be nobody but yourself-in a world which is doing its best, day and night, to make you everybody else...means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and NEVER stop fighting.
I tend to be "someone" on the competitive side...huh, really? Not really.
When I was young kid I loved to compete, specially sailing...but after some years, I have learned to take a look at my priorities and goals. Just where did they come from? Are they the products of self-analysis, soul-searching and careful planning?Or could they just be a reaction to the pressures from other people? Did you actually find your goals within yourself or from the pages of somebody else blog, or maybe even from the pages of a magazine?
These answers are quite important because they tell you if the person you're becoming is someone you really want to be.
Let's look at this; just what is a goal? Is it something YOU want or just something you THINK you want? It's not easy to follow our direction in our life, but it really is more possible than you might think. You must question everything. EVERY priority in your life needs to be justified as to why it's there. If you are unable to come up with a good reason which comes from YOU, then maybe it doesn't belong.
While I keep going up and up on numbers within my workouts, I look to see if that is really necessary or is it just "cool" looking to whip out a huge number to impress? While I'm truly not one to impress, but have the hopes to inspire-it becomes apparent that this has some weird effect on people. When I read of others doing "great runs", an "awesome ride", or a "whatever", it makes me want; "to be a part of that" for sure.
Besides all that, I have a huge GOAL to reach next year, and I'm training for it now. I need to crank out what I'm cranking out. I need to do what I'm doing. I've done the soul-search. I know what I want to achieve next year.
People, YOU need to just get over YOUR own insecurities and become the person YOU want to be.
