RE: What If Your Success Was 'Locked-In' At The Moment Of Decision, WHAT Would You Do? WHO Would You Be?

in #success8 months ago

Hi, @stevenwood.

I got to your blog thanks to my friend @crypto.piotr. Initially I thought that a post like this should be reaching $100. I see that it has not yet been appreciated as it should be :/

It's hard to get out of the comfort zone. Thinking about doing an activity that will give you success is easy, but when you decide to do it, the doubts will always appear and you will get the reasons not to do it.

Could it be that from the outset we KNOW we are destined for failure?

It seems so, because here every time you go out, a wave comes and sinks you again.

It's a continuous brace towards better lands in a totally agitated sea, but just when you see the shore up close, a new wave comes and sinks you and takes you away from your goal. I guess you have to keep on bracing because if you don't, you'll sink and die.

But I wonder why we always think the worst? Pessimism is a way of being that surrounds us everywhere.

It's hard to be positive when every day you take a hit in some way.

I love the comments this publication has generated.

Upvoted and resteemed ^_^

Have a nice day

Yes indeed my friend, your excellent observations make a huge amount of sense to me.

No matter what we do, no matter where we go, no matter what dreams we have there will always be another wave! I guess the only answer to accept this universal truth and still thrive is to become a strong and proficient swimmer when it comes to the problems that sometimes in life seem ceaseless and sometimes the answer is even more simple: grab something to cling to and hold on for dear life!!!

I wonder if just like an expert surfer maybe the most empowering way of dealing with this is to learn to negotiate the waves and actively enjoy overcoming them, wouldn't that be a glorious way for us to live our life?

Pessimism is like a creeping rot that has the capacity to invade and erode every aspect of our life and I have found the only way to ever truly defeat it ((albeit temporarily)) is to remain ever vigilant and develop strategies to turn a negative back in to a positive by asking ourselves quality questions when we find our belief is under attack.

Any time we do this we must celebrate that small victory in overcoming our mind and our darker nature.

Thank YOU so much for sharing your thoughts here, the wonderful engagement has blown me away completely. Take great care and keep on keeping on with the journey my friend :)
