Daily Battle #26: Learning to Fly

I have been trying to figure out how to fly for many years. When I say fly I am meaning to live an extraordinary life. I have and had a good life and I am very appreciated and grateful for what I have been given. This isn’t to say my life hasn’t experienced pain, heart ace, disappointment, and failure. And I have done some shitty things over the years, I am human as we are all.

I am not sure when the search began, where the deep seeded desire to be the best version of myself and to seek that person but somewhere inside of me there is this burning desire to win.

For me winning is the measure of the man I have become. I define winning by being able to accomplish what I set out to accomplish, no matter how small.

I remember when I was a kid, I convinced the neighbor to hire me to cut his grass. When it came to edging I was out there with pruning scissors on my hands and knees meticulously. Not the most efficient use of my time but I was wanting to produce the best edge possible. Producing the best job possible was about winning and about being the best.

As I look back, I wonder where did the desire to win come from?

Are we all born with it?

Do you want to win?

Have you given up on winning?

What I didn’t expect when I started out was how much crashing it would take for me to learn to fly.

Crashing sucks, it came be defeating, it can eat at the core of who you think you are.

I share this with you and I write this so you can understand if you have crashed.

It is ok, you are not alone. I have to and so many other people have as well and are crashing this point.

My commitment is to learn to fly and it doesn’t matter how long or how much work it takes, I am going to learn to fly higher than I have ever flown.

I am going to learn to soar.
