Letter to Your Inner “Loser”
We know that we could improve our lives exponentially if we were our best all the time.
Despite this, we still do the easy thing rather than the right thing.
A big reason is that we haven’t codified what we wanted or what we think we want is different from what we actually want.
Many guys dream of being a professional athlete, but the question is if they really want to wake up at 5 AM to practice, risk physical injury and rehab, being scrutinized, etc..
When you want to be successful in your job, you might not want to handle more responsibilities or the responsibility of managing other people which comes with a promotion.
If you want hot girls, you have to worry about keeping her and living at the level that you promised her.
Once you achieve something, life gets easier but the process of it will be harder.
If you want to succeed, you may have to give up some things.
Start the letter out with “Dear inner weaker self” or “Dear inner loser.”
Let yourself know that you don’t need it regulating or protecting you in the way it has before. Ex. Not making excuses for your business, not eating cake in the morning to stay in shape.
Open your eyes to the reality of what comes along with the thing you want.
Explain to yourself that you are willing to give up conveniences or the ability to seek those conveniences.
Let yourself know that it’s time to move on.
If you can’t write this letter, your goals may be not clear or it hasn’t been thought about enough because you should have enough motivation behind what you want to do.
