Our pain is the pain. We can sometimes only relate to others by comparing our past failures and successes. It amazes us to discover how blatantly self-centered we can be at times.
The Story we have for our lives is generally based in Inferiority and has to do with one of three things:
a) I don’t matter;
b) I’m not worthy;
c) I’m not (good) enough.
It will do us well to identify which one runs our Mediocrity. The alternative is Mastery and the way to Mastery is practice, awareness and service. The practice is usually the most difficult part.
