“How long are you going to wait until you demand the best of yourself.” - Epictetus
“It’s human nature to hold back. Even, if it’s just a little bit. It’s a survival mechanism we’ve built. If we send our all, but, we fail… we’ve been exposed. We feel embarrassed, even if only for a fleeting moment in time. We can all relate to a recent time where we found ourselves there. Think about how you felt. And ask outselves - was it so bad, that we’re willing to risk what our best has to offer?
Without active thought and effort, as the quote call for, it won’t happen. We literally have to demand it of ourselves. It takes work, as we’re deeply programmed in our subconscious not to. The choice of words Epictetus used above was purposeful. There isn’t a hint of achieving success, victory, or anything of the like. It was instead a plea to throw circumstances off the table, and to focus on one singular piece - are we giving our best today?
If we can focus on just that, everything else seems to just fall into place.”
