You're Not That Good
You've climbed the mountain. You're at the peak. You look around and all you see is the vast expanse of success you've navigated.
You're that good. Or, at least, that's what you think.
Remember the you from a decade ago? The one who thought he was at the pinnacle? The one who believed he was the hotshot in his field?
Fast forward to today. You're laughing at him. How naive he was! How overly confident! He was good but not that good.
Now, let's take a leap into the future. Imagine yourself ten years from now. He's looking back at the present you. Guess what? He's laughing too.
It's a humbling thought, isn't it? A gentle jolt to your ego. The sobering realization that no matter how good you think you are, you're not that good. At least, not yet.
This isn't about self-deprecation. It's about acknowledging the journey. The growth. The evolution.
The world doesn't stand still. Neither should you.
Don't be fooled by the mirage of mastery. There's always another mountain to climb. Another peak to conquer.
Today's genius is tomorrow's novice. But today's learner? He's tomorrow's master.
The paradoxical truth is this: The moment you believe you're that good, You've stopped becoming better.
So, keep pushing. Keep learning. Keep growing.
Because the you of tomorrow is relying on the you of today to become the idiot he can laugh at.
Embrace the cycle. It's the only way to true mastery.
Remember: you're not that good. But you can be.
