Have you ever done your best?
Have you ever tried as hard as you possibly can?
Have you done all of the preparation work that you possibly could?
Have you trained as hard as you could have?
Have you reread and rewritten your work enough?
Have you been focussed enough?
Have you tried every possible way to get it done?
Have you sought professional help or expertise?
Have you eliminated distractions?
Have you avoided all temptation?
Have you given it everything you’ve got?
Chances are that the answer is a big fat NO.
(almost everyone else will say no to that too)
Stop beating yourself up. Accept that your not perfect and be a little nicer to yourself
There are, of course, exceptions – maybe you’re one of them – and if you are – Well Done.
I’m very impressed and all that but seriously – get a life!
Smile, relax, have fun, eat a cake, daydream, watch silly TV, make up stories in your head – it’s all really cool stuff 🙂
So maybe do your best, but then again, maybe don’t.
Try to be happy…
…but don’t try too hard!
