111. Varsity vs. JV (The Importance Of Our Internal Monologue)

“Reality is nothing more than applied meaning.”

—-Me… and a bunch of notable philosophers that know way more than me:)

I have been asked MANY TIMES why I say “varsity” and what does it mean? SO we are going to unpack my labeling of varsity vs. jv and what it means to me. I am not sure where it really started, but it just kept going as an easy, time effective way to be conscious of varsity moments and JV ones. Meaning that a “varsity” state is not permanent. We all have JV moments, moments where we know we could have done better, knowing that within that JV moment there is a lesson offering an opportunity to level up.

A varsity state of mind or a varsity human are 3 main things:

– Self-aware

– Accountable

– Constantly Evolving

This really breaks down to internal thoughts and how I consciously (or unconsciously) work to (gracefully) disrupt my own internal monologue, aka work to maintain varsity status as much as I can. I found an amazing article from Huffpost Contributor, Judith Johnson, “Do You Know HOw Powerful Your Thoughts Are”, that breaks it all down . Judith breaks down in a simple, digestible way. She shares the science, the importance, and the solution to get your mind right, present, and authentic. It’s not easy or constant, but it’s doable and necessary if you seek a varsity way of life:).
