You can have it all
The people who lead us forward, the ones who inspire us in technology, music, business, sports, faith and science - often do so at the expense of both their own wholeness and ultimately - at the expense of a longer and greater impact.
They ones who don’t - take us higher, further and longer.
“So many people build their career at the detriment of their home life, but I knew that I didn't want to be on my 6th successful startup and my 6th wife, so l made both a priority.” Marc Randolph, founder Netflix
The good news is- you can have it all, you just can’t have it all quickly.
Fulfillment, meaning, love, romance, pleasure, impact, friendships and joy are all available and natural after their ugly shadows are retired and defeated - Ego boosts, trophies, power, romantic conquests, lust for dopamine, records and achievements, multitudes of admirers, the thrill of “winning”.
If you’re gifted, driven, passionate, hard working, disciplined - you are a gift to all of us. Just remember this:
If your inner game is off - your outer game will inevitably follow.
If your inner game is on - your outer game will inevitably follow.
Work on your inner game daily and you will have it all eventually.
