How to Succeed at Failure…
‘We are all big in our family ‘.
‘ I am a vegetarian it can’t work for me...’.
‘The New Year will be a good time but not right now ...’
‘It wouldn’t work for me because ...’
All specious arguments. Every one of them.
And they work because we believe them. We really do.
Truth is, we don’t want the inconvenience of change, or the effort of starting.
Also, failing to do anything about what we want to achieve, has become our comfort zone.
We now have a belief, and a value, that what ever we try, it will not work. It will fail.
It is a belief that serves us poorly. But it is our belief.
And our beliefs are precious.
And the only way we can keep our belief and sustain this particular value is by making sure nothing interferes with it.
Which is how, in that instance, the only way we can succeed, is by failing.
