I once saw a quote. Can’t remember it verbatim at this time, but it looked something like this:
“One of the worst ways to live through your twenties is to be overly concerned that you should have made it already.”
I don’t know about you, but sometimes, I get apprehensive that gradually the years are rolling by and if I’m not accomplished before the big 30, then I’m in deep shit.
Yes, some people make a whole lot of sense of their lives even in their teenage years or early twenties. Yes, it’s awesome to be a force of nature already at an early age. Yes, you could actually have made it (relatively) perhaps if you had put in a little more effort at some point.
But then, IT IS WHAT IT IS. You are what you are this very moment. And getting worked up over why you’re nowhere near where you think you need to be will not solve a single problem. The only thing it will achieve is to put unnecessary pressure on you.
True, there are a good chunk of your contemporaries making waves as it were, moving faster than you, but then, you guys can’t exactly move at the same pace.
As long as you know you’re improving daily, carefully treading the path to self mastery as well as mastery of some skill you intend to be great at, then all is well with the world.
By perseverance, the snail reached the ark.
Have a smashing week ahead.
