I have failed a lot in my life.
Thinking about it now, my eyes grow moist at all the failures that I have gone through and not learnt from. I am a hard headed stubborn bastard, who sometimes needs to go through a experience more than once so it sinks into his head. And I know that is a major fault of mine.
I know it’s stupid. Its something that I am trying to change.
Learning from your mistakes is important, but not making any or seeing them ahead of you so you can sidestep them is even better.
This year I have tried my upmost to stop making mistakes.
And you know what.
I failed miserably..
We are only five months in this year and the growing list of mistakes I have made keeps on growing, and growing, and growing.
But last night, I battled with myself and stopped myself from making one.
I TOOK CONTROL AND STOPPED.
Now this isn’t going to be a speech about, motivation or achieving your goals or any of that bull. Its just one man’s thoughts on how we are all human. It’s just one man’s thoughts on the struggle it takes to change yourself.
This year my goal was and still is self-growth and change.
I accomplished a lot last year. But it was with 60% of my overall effort. Everyone else looking from the outside in, would have been amazed at what I had accomplished. But honestly. It was easy.
It was easy to write a book. It was easy to learn about this how self-publishing business. It was easy to get all my ducks in a row.
But what isn’t easy, is knowing within myself that I could have done better. I could have archived more. I could have grown more.
So as the new years starts proper, none of this January business. I have made a promise to myself that I will attack it like it owes me money.
An in a lot of ways it does.
Remember that what you do, is a lot more important than what you say.
I just have to remember that myself sometimes.
Until next time
