Internal conflict

Conflict is inherent in everything necessary we do. However, it’s not a clash between ourselves and the world but rather an internal struggle within us.

Consider our desire for another dessert while also longing for a healthy, slim physique. Who exactly are “we”? Who represents our self-control, and who is being controlled?

We yearn to make a difference by taking a stand, yet we also seek refuge and safety by staying hidden.

Helping others is essential, yet we also crave to keep more for ourselves.

This isn’t just a metaphor, it results from our brain chemistry. Rather than possessing a unified mind, we have conflicting interests battling one another.

The conflict between our “I” and “me” lies at the core of our human experience. One side of ourselves promotes while the other resists.

Like effective marketing, understanding our audience —in this case, ourselves— enhances our ability to craft a compelling narrative. In this case, “I” markets to “me” (and vice versa) within the confines of our thoughts.

Successful individuals have mastered the art of self-marketing, enabling them to excel.
