I’m willing to bet that you are not as great as you want to be. If you are, you can stop reading here.
(I see you are still reading. Which means that either I was right, or the brakes on your eyeballs don’t work.)
You may not be as fit, rich, successful, kind, patient or brave as you wish you were.
In fact, you probably fall short of your ideal on a lengthy list of skills, states, and attributes.
That’s a gift.
The gap between where you are now and your ideal provides the motivation to act. It provides the motivation to improve. It creates the silent force that propels you. It fuels your hunger, drive, and growth.
And ultimately, your gap helps close your gap.*
*If The Gap at your local mall has recently closed it’s not your fault. Unless you were the manager.
