This question must be bothering me a lot because I woke up very early in the morning thinking about it. Thinking about past success here and there and wondering why there aren't more of them, what is holding me back.
Relating to sports, the perfect swing, the throw, the winning shot, the big save, the extra effort, why doesn't it happen more often? What holds one back?
Fear of winning versus fear of losing? Being good enough versus being great more often than not.
What do others perceive of me? Because of course perception is reality. There are different sign posts for other people to determine achievements in life.
In no particular order:
Status in the community
and so on, feel free to add to the list
The question is nothing to lose sleep over except that I am.
Satisfaction is fleeting, it is like trying to grab a handful of smoke.
If one is lucky, life is a marathon and there is a long way to go.
