Time for the Percolator

n-1416037637gkn48
Try. Learn. Do. Better.

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.
