it seems so

The reason I consider myself a failure is because I don't work hard enough to be the best I know I can be. When did "just getting by" and "finding or creating excuses" get to be the norm? When did being average seem ok because that's what everybody else was doing? When did exceeding all expectations of myself and others get to be looked down upon? Why am I scared to be the most brilliant, talented, and creative human being walking on this planet? Deep down I know I can be and that might piss people off for saying it or even believing it, but enough people have pissed me off in my life that I get a turn. Why am I even scared to write this?


  1. jason we are all scared to be the best we can be, because we are worried that others can be better.

  2. Your post made me think of another great quote on the subject...

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? ...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 to shine, as children do...It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." ~Marianne Williamson
