Life goes so fast these days …… At times, we don’t have time to make sense of our thoughts and feelings. Consequently, we confuse facts with our assumption and interpretation, based on our imagination.
Winning may be everything in life if our lives are centered on money. But, if you are more interested in living an active and rewarding life, don’t you think the striving is everything? If we believe the chase is the reward, then we learn to see failure as only a part of the game and not as a disaster. But we have to be willing to go to the last mile because that is where the reward is.
When we chosen to operate within the parameters of “I am not good enough” or “I know I can’t succeed, so I won’t try” context – not only is our our system being placed “on alert,” subconsciously; we redefined those settings in our “window of opportunities,” downsized our “self-esteem” and altered our “values” which could potentially bring us down and dysfunctional.
Many people take on this self-defeating attitude and as a result never challenge themselves. Anything worth doing is worth doing well. Failure is part of the process and not the end of the process. You don’t become a master of anything, if you don’t try. You will have to have patience and persistence. Indeed, we can always avoid embarrassment by doing nothing. And, if that is your measure, you will be successful. But, if you want acceptance, you will have to be willing to face a lot of rejection.
Be well …… May you have joy always !!!
