I Feel So Behind In Life

I feel like my life is slipping away from me.

Ever since I was little, I always told myself that I would be the best at everything. I wanted to join all these clubs and be good at all these sports. I even swore that I would get a 5.0 GPA in high school.

Looking back at myself I realized how much I let my past self down. I never did follow through with sports or join the clubs I wanted to. And I definitely don’t have a 5.0 GPA.

I always think to myself about why I didn’t do these things.

Having regrets about my life is the one thing I told myself I would never feel, but here I am feeling like my life is slipping by.

It doesn’t help when the people around me are doing such great things. I feel jealous that I can’t be as great as them.

I wish I was out there doing clubs and getting good grades and feeling my best, but I’m not.

And why is that? Is it because I feel like I’m not good enough, or that I already know I’m going to fail before I even try.

It’s a harsh reality to understand that there will always be people better than you at something. It can be school, clubs, etc.

But we truly give up on ourselves when we accept the fact that we will never be good enough.

How do I get rid of my limits?

The only thing that limits you from greatness is yourself.

Even I haven’t completely understood how to break free from my limitations, but I know that I have to try. To give up is to fall into the trap.

It’s all about habit.

Your habits are the root of your success. My habits consist of procrastinating, drawing, and sleeping. These habits only benefit my artistic skills, but what about school?

I completely block school out from my everyday habits.

I now understand that to be successful at school I need to change my habits.

This is not an easy thing to do. I’ve tried many times to change this habit, but I won’t stop trying. Because if I stop trying, then I’ve failed myself.

So try setting times for when you want to study this or practice that. This is a great way to start changing your habits and increasing your success.

It all starts with you. No one can make the decision, but yourself. You have the power to eliminate all your limitations. It just takes time and confidence.

Don’t let your limitations define you. You are in control of your own life.
