    2nd conditional in reported speech + additional phrase

    hey, could you tell me if i should change the last part of the sentence?

    I wouldn't achieve anything special if I was satisfied with what I have already been able to do.

    reported (without changing the 2nd conditional to the 3rd cond.):

    I was sure that I wouldn't achieve anything special if I was satisfied with what I

    have already been able to do. OR
    had already been able to do.

    thank you
