"The majority see the obstacles, the few see the objectives."
~ Alfred A Montapert.
What's the difference between a kindred spirit and most people?
Have you ever noticed what most people say - When we achieve or accomplish less than we can? ~ Most people say ~ "Take It Easy ~ Relax ~ It's OK." Their response is nice, supportive and comforting. It validates our effort. But does it help? That depends on how we internalize what most people say. If we are like most people ~ we appreciate the validation. If we're not well... ~ We don't appreciate it.
Why? ~ Because we know we can always do better. When we do less than we know we can ~ Our kindred spirit says to us ~ It's Not OK.
Unless we, and our kindred spirit, are like most people.
