No sentiment truer than this…
We must constantly consider our inner dialogue, as it can shape the world in which we live internally…AND (very much) externally.
Every encounter we ever have has the possibility to bring with it learning and positivity… Every. Single. One.
Even if you aren’t aware at the time, do what you can to reflect – for in this reflection you will find a many beautiful gems with which you will become a stronger person, more in tune with you truths, and more fit to live the richest life imaginable.
Failure is never “the end,” and neither it is indeed “failure” the way our mind may perceive it. We are generally our own worst enemies and are – I am willing to bet – doing a lot more RIGHT than we are wrong.
Even when we falter and don’t reach the end we *think* is the correct one, there is a strong possibility that we are headed for a great success (part of a larger tapestry we aren’t always aware of.)
In missing the mark we learn a great deal, and for many of us those lessons stay top of mind. Take what you see as a “failure” and focus on the good – what you have learned, and what you steered away from, may well have you rerouted for greatness.
They sometimes say “expectation is the root of heartache,” which I dare say can be a self-fulfilling truth.
Expecting the best takes a lot of practice. It takes reminders many multiple times a day… But after a time, it becomes more of a habit than it is not, and that’s when the magic starts to unfold. . .
