I notice that we tend to defend our position like it has value. As if not showing up (even with good reason), not putting in the extra effort or having a “oh, that’s just how it is” mindset has ever produced amazing results.

Why do we fight so hard to defend the mediocre?

What would life be like if we showed up no matter what, we went the extra mile, and we decided that “this is how it could be” were our default settings.

I think we’d experience a totally different life, even if the people around us didn’t change one bit.

Ponder that.
