For example, on a daily basis, it’s considered arrogant to say “I am the best”
or anything like that.
You are not free to talk like that about yourself. You work very hard to be the best but if you say it, everybody will look at you weird. Weird, right?
And when a competition is around the corner, we often suffer from anxiety because we are trapped in this zone where we want to be the best but can’t really say it or think it or share it. The consequence is that, at times, this messed-up mindset makes us underperform.
But what if…just like that little girl…on the day of a competition…we were completely and absolutely free to show the world how great we are.
What if instead of being worried and doubtful before a competition because we’re not sure that we are going to be able to live up to people’s expectations and ours, what if instead we were absolutely liberated that for once, we are allowed, we are given the permission to show our talents with complete freedom.
I am not talking about Confidence, here. I am talking about Freedom.
To me, in this context, Confidence means “Despite what you’ve said and despite what I’ve been through, I can do this!”
But Freedom means nothing except, “I am just free. I can perform freely”.
What if we could perform like that?
What if I was able, in these blog posts, to show you how great I write, without any inhibition?
What if you were able, when you compete, to perform with absolute freedom and show everybody what you’re made of?
Not because you want to prove someone wrong.
Not because you want to impress someone.
But simply because you are free, and you are allowed to show us how powerful you are.
I am with you.
