I used to fail on purpose. That’s right; you heard me correctly. I used to fail on purpose. Hard to believe now, right? There was a time in my life, particularly around my late teens/early 20s, where I would purposely not give it my all and feign poor performances. And I include both sport and academic activities in this. But why? The reason was simple. I was afraid of what the success might bring. Was afraid that if I am successful, I might lose the friends that I know at this point. I might lose the life that it is familiar (and comfortable) to me, even if that meant I’d lose the football competition or fail in that maths test. It didn’t matter. I was afraid to succeed. I was afraid of change. But my attitude has evolved dramatically over the past decade or so (that makes me feel old...!). I now want to be the first to do something. I want to break records. I want to standout. I want to make a difference, not just to me but to others too and in many ways, the world. As Marianne Williamson said “Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant shine, as children do.” So guys; take this on board and make sure you have no regrets about failing to live up to your full potential. Because I do.
And right now I’m doing all I can to make up for it. #motivation #motivationalspeaker #humpday #fit #fitfam #workoutmotivation #workout #burpees #londonfitness #train #training #worthing #sussex #brighton #instagood #instagram #photo
