You will never be “good enough”!


Brown bread!

I’ve had an motional rollercoaster.

Two great days in Sligo coaching Cyr Wheel

at Sligo Cyr Club’s first workshop!

 

Kick started by two awesome beaches Orna and Orla…

Well done Sligo…

I drove to Limerick beaming from ear to ear!

Buzzing I was.

It was an accomplished feeling.

I hadn’t felt this level of accomplishment

for a while now so I thank them very much.

 

Then to the Irish Aerial Creation Centre.

Met a bunch of new people.

(Everyone is cool)

Great start! haha

 

I’m two days into a 3 week Creative Intensive

process trying to push myself both creatively

and physically in a way I never have before.

It’s involving my Cyr wheel and the air…

Hopefully I’ll know more myself in a few weeks… 

 

So with two days down, I’m shattered already.

Like zombie shattered.

The lights are on but nobody is home

kind of shattered….

So I am  feeling a little venerable at the minute.

I kind of hit on some “Demons” earlier

that I  was kind of aware of,

but never really admitted

to or acknowledged out loud…

Actually saying the words makes it quiet real…

And it helped me…

 

So after me getting some help earlier today,

so I’m gonna help you now. 🙂

 

Here’s the thing I would like you to know….

 

You will never actually be good enough!

Ever

 

Read that sentence a few times.

Re-read it,

and then read it again.

the quicker you accept that,

the more you will enjoy whatever

the hell it is you are doing.

 

For example:

So you are play football.

You want to be really good at it

and train like hell!

At what point are you “good enough”?

Is there an exact point?

Or are you simply constantly developing?

 

 

Maybe you’re a crossfitter..

At what point are you “good enough”?

Is there a measure?

 

 

You might even have a list…

Something like:

2x bodyweight deadlift.

1.5x Bodyweight clean and jerk

Handstand walk the length of your gym…

They’re the goals…

 

And one day you get them…

You hit your numbers…

What then?

Are you good enough now?

 

 

I didn’t think so.

 

 

So I repeat.

You will never ever be good enough…

 

Because the bar keeps moving.

Once you get “good enough” the bar moves up..

 

It’s like happiness.

When will you be “happy”?

Well Ronan I’ll be happy when I earn €100,000, own my own house and car…

 

I doubt that.

By then you’ll want a bigger salary, bigger house and bigger car…

So you’re never happy.

You never actually get there.

 

So unless you accept the FACT that you will never/never be

Good Enough

Rich Enough

Successful Enough

Fit Enough

Skinny Enough

Big enough

Lift Enough

Pretty Enough…..

Smart Enough

etc.

 

You’ll constantly be chasing something that’s unattainable!

Like a friggin rainbow.

I’ve been there as a kid. It’s disheartening and annoying..

You never get there…

 

You see it isn’t really the result we’re chasing.

It’s the pursuing of it!

 

 

So I propose a challenge to you my readers…

(I’ll say hello to half of you…. Hi Mum)

 

Set yourself a goal.

Be it business, health, fitness, relationship, finance.

Set one.

 

 

And then pursue that fucker passionately.

 

Contact the right people to help you get there.

Notify the important people in your life and

ask them to either support or stay out of your way.

 

 

And while you pursue the goal,

Enjoy the process,

Thats the magic.

The process.

 

Simples…

 

 

Ronan “not good enough” Brady

 

 

P.S

 

If your goals are fitness related,

get in touch.

I’d only be delighted to help you out..
