We can become cloaked in our fears to the point that we can’t see the possibilities around us. Everyone isn’t out to get us. There are people cheering for us to be victorious. The problem is …. that we are in our own way.

What if we are instead marching more towards mediocrity than success. Avoiding failure and success. The slow ebb of normalizing mediocrity.
What if we convinced ourselves that we were putting it all out there and giving it everything we had despite knowing that we weren't?

Then we could go back to what we knew content with failure until it becomes routine.
