Warren Buffet once said “the big question about how people behave is whether they’ve got an inner scorecard or an outer scorecard. It helps if you can be satisfied with an inner scorecard”
As an individual, we should seek to be the best possible individual we can be and hold ourselves to our own standards. Standards which will create and to which we hold ourselves accountable to being the best possible version of ourselves.
Your standards should include your potential, your potential to reach your true capability. That’s the internal scoreboard; you want be to testing yourself against yourself.
Too many people have the desire to win the external scoreboard, anyone can get lucky and win it, be in the right place and win it but are they the best possible version of themselves?
I am being real here and saying how I see it, I am trying to say that it doesn’t matter if you win or lose the external scoreboard. Do everything in your physical and mental power to win the internal scoreboard.
That’s what truly matters
