2020 isn’t over yet

2020 isn’t over yet

So don’t give up on it.

Yeah things haven’t gone your way

So what?

A pilot doesn’t always have a good landing

But they dont blame it on the year

And they don’t just throw in the towel

It’s not been the best year for anyone

Yet there is still time to make a better landing

Don’t blame external events, how we respond today (not next year) will set us up for a better tomorrow

Bad chapters can still create great stories

Bad chapters can still create great stories

  • Cynthia Thurlow

Real life isn’t a movie or a book so that magical ending isn’t going to automatically happen,

But if you keep pushing through your struggles, through the hard times

Then you can turn this bad chapter into a great story but not if you settle this chapter for the ending.

Improvisation

I had a cool idea for a post today, but then I forgot what is was, so now I’m just kind of improvising as I go,

Because sometimes we can just sit and think too much and get nothing done whilst waiting for a bit of inspiration

Or we can just start something, good or bad it doesn’t matter because it will get the juices flowing and something good may come of it

What stands In the way becomes the way as Marcus Aurelius would say

It’s a bit like when your feeling anxious about something, say a job Interview,

Well during the interview your not anxious because your there in the present but worrying about is in the future

So action helps stop anxiety

We can think or we can do
We can worry or we can take action
We can let obstacles stop us, or we can use them to drive us forward

Hall Of Famers Fail 70% Of The Time

Hall Of Famers Fail 70% Of The Time – MJ DeMarco

Failing can be disheartening,

You put in all your efforts, your tired, Exhausted…

You hit launch, Go for the big lift…

And you miss it, nobody signs up for your product or the outcome isn’t what you thought, your shop fronts empty.

You feel down, you want to give in or just curl up in a ball and hide your head in a pillow whilst thinking about everything else you could have done in that time…

Well that’s just part of the process

especially on try no.1, the chances are you are going to fail.

But just because you failed your 1st attempt that doesn’t mean you have to stop.

You can launch 10 products – 7 will probably fail but the 3 that succeed will probably come from the lessons you learnt creating the 1st 7.

Whatever your attempting today, be prepared to fail,

Failure is part of the process of becoming a hall of Famer

The cost of failure is…

The cost of failure is…learning. Neil Strauss

In life, there is Winning and there is learning

The only way you lose is if you let yourself lose…

Losing is lazy.

When we lose, we shut off our brains, sulk and most likely blame something or someone…

We don’t look for the lesson – That would require work.

When we look for the lessons we stop losing.

It’s impossible to lose if we gained something

Don’t be a loser,

Be a learner
