The purpose of this blog is to help me become more optimistic, which is a challenge in itself. On the other hand, adopting an optimistic outlook has counteracted the crippling fear that kept success from my reach.
The pessimist sees all the roadblocks standing in the way of success. The biggest roadblock being failure. Nothing gets accomplished with failure at the helm. Once I learned to see the roadblocks not as roadblocks, but as the steps to success, the impossible became possible.
Failing numerous times to accomplish a task is incredibly frustrating. You give all that you can, and it’s still not good enough.
What’s the point in consistently trying if I’m consistently failing?
Honestly, it’s so much easier to throw in the towel. But what does throwing in the towel accomplish?
The ONLY thing it accomplishes is telling that voice in your head that it’s been right this entire time.
There’s no growth in quitting. Give yourself time to process and regroup.
When you’re ready, start picking the task apart. Note your approach step by step to the task and its result. Think about how you can possibly fix each piece and then think about how you can make that fix even better.
Most importantly, remember that nothing worth having is ever going to be easy to obtain.
If I can’t get this one thing accomplished, who’s to say that I’ll get everything else right?
If you’ve failed at something numerous times, you know how important it is to succeed. And you’ll be damned if you fail the rest of the journey.
Now go out there, work hard, and give failure the finger of your choice.
