This morning, I was having a conversation with @shotstoriesbyvarunsuresh about fitness and had a profound realization - that improvement must be the only thing we chase; simply better today than yesterday. So I finally found the courage to post this, and reflect on something that has been a constant in my entire adult life.
I remember this version of me from 7 years ago, but I don’t relate to her at all.. Nothing has taught me the power of conviction, accountability, and discipline like this (ongoing) journey has. Over the years, I saw that the only shortcut to achieve something is to hustle everyday, and I’ve applied that in every arena of life. My priorities, values, perspectives, the number of fucks to give...everything transformed as a result. I absolutely love that I’m not who I used to be. I have new goals every day and the mindset required to chase them. Through all that, I worked the hardest to learn to be happy and ignore the naysayers.
18 YO me (x2) would look at 25 YO me and go, “well done kid, you did good.”
