Nope, once you stop trying to do more that's like giving up

If I hit my peak it was probably 15 years ago.

I like to think I will eventually get my shit in order, lose some weight, and find some sort of self-worth....so my peak is yet to come.

Yes, I hit my peak in early 2000 I'm pretty much a expired meat suit now that plays a NPC in all of your lives.

Not even remotely close. I'm still in the lower bottom of what I could/want to achieve.

I'm in a good place right now -- in terms of being in good shape, navigating into my career space and having solid relationships with people. There's no way to know if I've hit my peak unless I decide right now to just give up. Never give up, there's no limit to growth. There's no such thing as being perfect so don't worry about bumping your head on some imaginary ceiling we all think exists.

@DEVILinIRON: Oh if you like dem quotes, here's another one:

“The worst evil which can befall the artist is that his work should appear good in his own eyes.” - Leonardo da Vinci

Perfection is an insecurity even the greatest artists and scientists would suffer. The trick is to let that pressure go. You are not shit but you are also not THE shit. People need to get over their own egos to truly expand their horizons.

And one more for the road:

"Do the thing you fear most and the death of fear is certain." - Mark Twain

We hold ourselves back in life often enough because of fear, self-doubt and insecurity. People become productive procrastinators in life working jobs they're miserable at, yet become complacent with little to no effort in finding better horizons. Facing our fears and insecurities head-on will bring ourselves to even greater peak heights. Those heights never stop but only when you choose to give up. Never give up.

Not yet. I still have things to achieve and reach my goals. I am still a work in progress, never the finished product.

I'm getting there. I got fit, I get more attention from woman, and I'm about to finish my music degree. I have worked as a piano teacher and a church pianist which saved enough money to help me pay for tuition. Covid killed the music dream but I am eligible to switch to nursing, and hopefully I can be a practicing nurse in a couple of years.

I have a lot less head fog than I did 10 years ago.

If getting *pushed off* counts then I hit it in high school. Everyone crowned me *their winner* and said I do all things that cool when I count on God. I liked everything and was pretty happy for a guy that's supposed to be down on himself all the time but my perception of things changed. I'd say my life was on the downturn, sloping downward until I got way older.

In life - I'm a rock star. In everything else - I'm gay. Oh and before I hit 15, I was a pretty dumb bowl cut kid that got girls in his pocket like magic and to this day - I have the cred to f*ck with the best of them.

Now, I hear stuff...

Mostly no.

Financially, no.

Mentally, no.

Spiritually, no.

Physically, kind of. I'll never get the luxurious curls back, but I can get the bod back. Work in progress.

Definitely not. Made some positive changes recently though.
