Well I feel like you haven’t seen just how incompetent the rest of the world is, you may think your “little kid skills” aren’t worth anything, but they’re the kind of thing that make a person special and valuable to society.
You may not feel particularly good at any one thing in general, but you are good at everything you do. Don’t make being good at everything you do convince you that you aren’t spectacular at anything.
Stop hating yourself. Try going one day without saying anything bad about yourself. Try complimenting yourself. Do it again. Buy yourself dinner. Put soft things against your skin. Listen to your favorite songs. Eat ice cream. Eat ice cream naked. You have to spend the rest of your life with you. You’re all you’ve got. Be kind, start loving yourself.
You will screw up, you will be celebrated, and you will feel like a loser and a winner all in the same day. And that will happen over and over. But the people who succeed are those who dust themselves off and keep going because they’re not motivated by hitting their goals. They’re motivated by getting to a place where they can set new goals that seem just as unreasonable as the ones before them once did.
Take a moment to fully grasp that—The most successful people are NOT motivated by reaching their goals. They’re motivated by getting to a place where they can confidently and audaciously move the finish line further into the distance.
So set incredibly ambitious goals. Chase them with fervor. And then move the finish line far off into the distance.
