My life is a string of failures cobbled together, framed as some sort of larger-scale success…by the very virtue of my having overcome the odds.
Still, daily, there are any number of self-doubts and needling anxieties to surmount. Granted they are generally fewer in number & smaller in scope these days, but it never ceases to amaze me how much wind is taken out of my sails when what I thought was to be a surefire success turns out to be anything but.
So how do I get past it? With my mind — after all, that is exactly where the root of the problem stems from. So much of personal anguish is actually self-imposed. The idea is to detach oneself from it — let it go, give it up. Instead of berating myself…reminding myself that if I can honestly say I gave my best, then I have done my job.
By learning how to mentally push through & process failure, you set yourself up for ultimate success. As long as ya learn & don’t let it bring ya down…it’s all you need. Self-propulsion. Grateful for that percolation to the top.
