Everyone can see how you view yourself. There's no hiding it. It’s in your eyes. The way you carry yourself. Your vibe. The energy you bring into the room.
Look outside. Most people walk the planet doubting themselves. Constantly wondering about what others think — an internal dialogue revolving around the EXTERNAL WORLD. All on the expectations and validation of random strangers that does not matter in the slightest.
How do you get out of this mental model?
See — the only way to walk through life with unshakeable confidence is to FIND YOURSELF. Not in the cliché modern self-care way, but to retreat & find solace in your mind. Ask yourself the important questions. Understand what matters to you. What in life brings you deep satisfaction. Identify the dreams you want to make reality. The live you want to live. Forge a path to make them come true.
Once it's all clear, or at least once you can visualize the next dot in the painting is when you start building momentum. Put each foot forward, one step at at time. The world is truly your oyster. Life is all but a GAME.
Once you have calibrated the compass, you will walk through rooms a new-born man, with a fervour & swagger to your step. Your thoughts start becoming about the INTERNAL. What's best for you & your tribe. Everything else a blur. Trivial. You now have a clear mission, and you're willing to use every waking moment to get there. You wake up and throw darts on the board until you're exhausted. You give thanks. Repeat. Deeply Fulfilled. No other way.
No reason to not TRULY BELIEVE you’re the luckiest man alive. God’s favorite. Blessed beyond belief.
"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment"
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
