Who You Are vs. Who You Want To Be

To paraphrase Hemingway, the goal is not to be better than anyone else, but to become better than your former self.
Because the truth is that there’s someone out there who’s better than you at anything you can imagine. It’s just how it is.

You can as competitive as you like, but you’ll only become bitter whenever you’ll be defeated.

The trick is to compete with yourself. To outgrow who you used to be, to push past your own limits and fears.

  1. I have always thought of my own process as if I was both the blacksmith and the iron. I put myself into fire to be heated and prepared for the hammer. Being pounded, folded and twisted as well as tempered. The process is hard for the smith and terrible for the iron but the end product will withstand the test.
