My heart gives endless excuses not to pick up the SOC assignment again.
Simply because of fear to undergo the same burden of a strong emotion of a loser. Everytime I return to the same page, I feel like a blind person walking straight ramming the wall. Hit hard. This happens repetitiously. This lowers my self-esteem and deteriorates my optimism as well as my focus.
How to deal with overcoming fear? Do you have any ideas? Care to share with me? Share your ideas here and let me experiment them. Thank you !
How I can think differently from others? I mean how I can enrich my ideas, knowledge and understanding on something and take different path from others?
Read! Yes that answer is R.E.A.D.!
Read books or read quality materials with substance. And more specifically, read books or materials different from others. Since the content of I read serves as fuel to my thoughts, this serves that path for thoughts. If I read same books like others, my idea and thoughts are going to be the same like others. In addition reading the common books or materials, I need to explore other good books/materials (rare materials) to pave different paths or alternatives. Just like the saying of Haruka Murakami:
If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you only think what everyone else is thinking!
Be brave to face the reality of riding storms in your life. Successful people like Canfield, Edison, and Kiyosaki, always articulate positively about failing! Canfield views failing is an opportunity to make attempts. Edison believes that failures are connected to how close we’re to succeed. And interestingly, Kiyosaki sees failure as an essential part of the learning curve, thus failing is needed to become a learned person. Our experiences talk louder than these words. Don’t worry about failing, keep trying! Keep progressing! Success is just around the corner.
Don’t worry about failures,
Worry about the chances you miss
when you don’t even try.
by Jack Canfield
Many of life’s failures are people
who did not realize how close they were to success
when they gave up
by Thomas Edison
Successful people don’t fear failure
but understand that it’s necessary to learn and grow from
