This is a very sore subject for me.
But I have to face it now that I’ve already undergone training to remove it from my life.
For a very long time I have been a very arrogant person.
This is because I’ve been successful in the things I’ve done in the past.
And I always thought I was humble enough when in fact I had been so very good at hiding my arrogance even to myself.
My arrogance is based on how successful I’ve been ever since I was 15. My success is relative. What I thought was success was really just me being able to fend for myself, be independent from anyone.
So what happened was I became distant. I forgot my friends, my family, everyone. All in the pursuit of success.
I attended a workshop that uncovered all the lies I made to myself.
The lies that I do not need anyone.
I slowly tried to heal this sickness from within and so far I can say I’ve managed to amend my mistakes in the past. I’ve admitted my mistakes to my family and friends and I now feel better about my pursuit of success.
My pursuit is no longer for money but for the success of everyone around me. If I am able to do that, then I can assure that I will never run out of people to talk to and succeed with. 😀
