Tell ’em we don’t wanna play, yeah, yeah.
We’re so okay with last place.
We already won the game, yeah, yeah.
No, we won’t run your rat race.
That Rat Race chorus has been stuck solid inside my skull for over a week now and I can’t take it off repeat. Because, as crazy as this might sound, I’ve never thought about where I’d be okay in last place.
Last place. Really?!? That’s a complete 180. I’m wired to charge ahead, improve, dominate. If I’m doing it, I’m winning it. Win everything. It’s a safe bet you are too.
So my question is…What are we chasing (right now…today) that we shouldn’t be? What are we pursuing that’s an empty goal or hollow promise? Most importantly, where can we deflate the pressure placed on ourselves and be “so okay” with last place?
I’m beginning to find my spots. Can you?
We won’t run their rat race…
