Striving vs. Accepting
It’s easy to get caught up in hustle culture, and burn out from constant striving for more and better. You want to accept yourself for where you and who you are, and be ok with that.
BUT at the same time, you don’t want to become complacent, or lower your standards for excellence.
How can you balance these two ideas?
It’s not an easy question.
But start by being aware of it. Then, how could you create a sense of self-love WHILE pursuing that which is challenging and growth-enhancing?
Integrate both striving and acceptance into your life.
This reminds me of a quote:
“Lesser artists are sequential. Great artists are simultaneous.”
