I am a competitive person. Whether it’s a challenge at work, a football game, a 10k run or a game of jenga with my children I want to do my best and win.
What I’ve also come to realise is that no matter what I achieve there’s a part of me that says, “It’s never enough”.
No matter how much money I earn, it’s never enough.
No matter how many goals I score, it’s never enough.
No matter how fast my finishing time is, it’s never enough.
No matter how many games I win, it’s never enough.
It would be really easy to say this is a self-defeating behaviour and simply stop doing it, but the reality is a different matter.
The challenge comes from changing my beliefs. Changing from “it’s never enough” to “it’s good enough” is a hard thing to do. Realising my achievements are good enough and that it’s ok to strive for more.
