2020 isn’t over yet
So don’t give up on it.
Yeah things haven’t gone your way
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
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.
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 – 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…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
