When I hear people say “you’re so competitive” or “you need to slow down – don’t you just take a break sometimes?” it only propels the message that competition is bad….and moreso the idea that trying to develop yourself to your ultimate potential is a dirty concept
One of the things that I personally find hard is to block out negative voices in my head. I also tend to worry a lot and the mixture of worry, negative thoughts and being alone with those thoughts is a really bad mix.
Let's change that!
Lately I’ve become obsessed with serendipity. I say ‘lately’ because until a ew weeks ago, I didn’t believe in it – or perhaps more correctly, understand it. After all, how can something that is meant to be positive and by chance possible come from a professional career falling apart through no other reason that wrong place, wrong time or ten years and the recession, mixed with continuous injury and mixed with a very long spell of really, really bad luck.
