Which of These 3 Options You Choose Determines Your Entire Life
You are a square peg. You spend a lifetime trying to pound yourself into the round hole.
Why? Because someone else told you that is what you “should do.”
You believe them. Maybe it’s what you think you are “supposed to do.” Perhaps it’s because “that’s what everyone else is doing.” It seems to make sense…even though it doesn’t really feel like a fit.
Choosing this option gives you a lifetime trying to be something you are not. Not only will you never get anywhere you want to go, but you will live your life with a terrible headache from constantly pounding your head against the wall!
This is what someone else thinks you should be.Option #2
You are a square peg. You spend a part of your life trying to pound yourself into the round hole.
At some point, you realize that you are a square peg and that is a round hole and you are not going to fit in…at least, not the way you are.
What you choose to do is to shave off your edges a bit and try your hardest to look like a round peg.
Once you alter yourself enough, you inevitably will fit into the round hole.
The problem is, you will always be a square peg. At some point, that will catch up with you.
Mainly because, trust me, you LOOK like a square peg TRYING to be a round peg!
This is what you think you should be.Option #3
You are a square peg. You spend a short period of time trying to pound yourself into the round hole.
You acknowledge relatively quickly that you are a square peg and this is a round hole and that will not work.
And, that is OK.
So, you choose to change your focus slightly and look around only to find that there is a square hole right next to the round one.
You walk over and fit right in immediately.
This is who you are.
