“Everything being a constant carnival, there is no carnival left.” ~ Victor Hugo
We’ve all felt it.
You hit a home run. You hit an all-time high. You’ve just given a Gold Medal performance.
That’s good, right?
Sure it is.
But then, right on its heels comes the pressure to top yourself.
Then you start thinking that everyone else expects you to do it every time. You know you probably can’t deliver at that level every time, but what do you do?
If you’re smart you celebrate the personal best.
You enjoy the moment.
Then you go back to doing what you do because you love it. You do it because you love people. You do it ignoring the pressure to join the circus.
Nobody is great all the time.
Quit the circus.
Refuse to perform in the carnival.
Ignore the pressure.
You’re better than that.
You’re better than that all the time.
