This message is for all those who are not particularly ambitious. Who have absolutely no desire to become a high-achiever.
Maybe…just maybe…you’ve been feeling a bit guilty about not being more ambitious. Occasionally, you find yourself wondering why you weren’t born with more determination and drive. After all, every single self-help book you’ve ever read has said pretty much the same thing: ‘Become the BEST version of yourself.’
Today, I want you to know that you are awesome just the way you are. You’re NOT a misfit. For humanity to evolve and thrive, we certainly need the bravehearts who take their giant leaps of faith outside their comfort zones. But equally we need the quieter souls who steady the ship when in turbulent waters and become pillars of strength in their own serene way.
You don’t need to become anything you don’t WANT to become. If the urge to tap into your greatest potential is what tugs at you, go out and conquer the world. But if all you want to do is ‘simply be’, then, my friend, that’s what you must do. Without guilt. Without self-loathing. Without despair.
You are perfect just the way you are.
Let no one tell you otherwise.
