“If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.”
No person is perfect, we can all get better in a multitude of ways. To do so though means you have to strive. You have to lean forward and seek growth. You have to overcome our inherent human laziness and aversion to extremely hard work. It is a daily fight to be better and to grow.
I know I struggle with always wanting to do more, to take on more. To push harder. I never want to let my natural self be stronger than my desired self. It is a daily choice. Sometimes I win, sometimes I don’t. But one can never ever give up. There is a better version of yourself on the other side.
