Another Limiting Belief Found! Need help finding replacement
I've just discovered an absolute beast inside myself.
It is the belief that success is improvement on past performances. I believe I need to get better over time, otherwise I am a failure.
Why is this so hideous?
Because the better I get, the harder it is to improve, and the more likely it is I will fail!!
God damn it, I gave up bloody golf, which is the only sport I've ever excelled at because I stopped improving (visibly) for a year or so. I began to experience the pain of failure, simply because I was failing to improve. I bet if I wasn't giving myself such a hard time and being so depressed and paranoid I would have improved anyway!
My standard of success is simply to keep getting better. I always assumed this was really positive but it's actually limiting.
Time to get rid of this belief and replace it with:
Success is never quitting.
Success is doing the best I can with the resources I have.
Any suggestions here for good rules about what constitutes success?

I have one I use:
Just be the best version of yourself at any given time.
Sometimes it is better than me yesterday and sometimes it's not. And it is OK.
I was an overachiever and wanted always to be the best and then better and better until one day my body said STOP and I did.
The first time I could stop and "smell the roses" was the day I could learn to live again and be happy. Not saying I am happy ALL the time but most of the time YES.
