For a long time there was this Sword of Damocles hanging over my head of general –society pressure that pushed me to want to be the best. Not only the best at one thing, nope, to be the best at everything. I used to be chasing all these skills that were really not in my alley but I honestly believed that I needed to adopt each skill and gain knowledge about everything and then excel in all of these, to be part of the “game”.
This deeply engraved conviction is slowly fading away though and replaced by a far more positive one. I focus on what I do best instead of dwelling and torturing myself on the things and skills I am not good at and probably never will be. Besides the fact that this shift is a far more positive and relaxed approach as I leave the rest to other people, I also become more aware of the huge skillset I actually have. I am becoming the best in whatever is inside me instead of chasing something that is not really there. Do what you do best is becoming my new motto and I invite you to have a go at it as well.
