My Worst vs Your Best

It’s been a rough day.  I’m tired, grouchy, and disappointed in myself.  I feel unmotivated. I can’t think straight and I’m emotionally numb.  I feel like things are never going to change and that nothing has a purpose.

Logically I know this mood will pass, but in the moment it seems as if it will last all of eternity.  Whether I’m at the top of my game or in a slump my mind tends to act as if my current state is how I’ll feel the rest of my life.

It’s days like these where I don’t feel like doing anything except mindlessly browsing the internet.  I know it’s not in my best interest to do so, but it’s almost as if my brain shuts off and I don’t realize how long I’ve been on the computer until the day’s half over.

It’s easy to be productive when I’m at the top of my game.  Anyone can do work while they feel motivated.

The thing is, if I’m going to be truly great I need to be able to produce great value to the world even when I don’t feel like it.

I’ve only been working on my personal development for two years, so some may argue I’m being too tough on myself, but if I want to be the best motivational speaker this world has ever seen I need to be willing to go farther than anybody else is willing to go.

Writing this article when it’s the last thing I want to do is a good first step towards that, but I still have a long way to go.  If I want to be great, my worst has to be better than everyone else’s best.
