Champions are broken people. They don’t generally have the most admirable internal states. People look at champions and try to identify qualities that the champion has that they do not have. Accept that all of your heroes are full of shit; your heroes are not gods, they are just regular people who probably got good at one thing by neglecting literally everything else. It is okay that they are full of sh*t because they accomplished what they set out to achieve
- Constantly ask yourself: “What are we optimizing for?” Michael Jordan won many championships and is a billionaire. Seems miserable.
- But champions lack something that non-champions have: an off button.
On listening to peoples’ opinions = Why should I give a shit about what you think, you won’t even show up at my funeral.
