Somewhat related to the Sanae-ness.

I think acknowledging of one’s own limits is just as important as a desire to constantly test and extend them. Being hard on yourself is all well and good as a way to help you improve, but there’s no point if the pressure backfires and destroys your will to keep trying in the first place. There’s no point in getting all depressed over a small failure in the process of improving yourself, because letting it get to you inadvertently writes off all the successful accomplishments that brought you to that point in the first place. There’s no shame in saying that you can’t do something, because everything that you commit yourself to produces a load that you have to carry, whether it be physical, mental, or emotional, and sometimes you simply cannot take on anything more at that point in time. And yet all of these reactions not at all uncommon – they are perfectly natural because we are all human.

In order to improve yourself and extend your limits, you have to first understand and acknowledge the limits that are inherent to you. All improvement takes time, and everyone makes mistakes. Just acknowledge that these two things are simply part of the process and keep going.

    That’s the spirit! It doesn’t matter if there are better people than you out there, or that you can’t be the best; all that really matters is if you’re enjoying it. Or if you’re okay with doing it (ie making money for a living). Don’t get too fed up just because someone’s better than you because even geniuses have problems (maybe not with what they do but with life in general). Go Go Akuun!!!
