The difference between people that succeed and people that don’t succeed is people that take responsibility for the "how" and understand that failure is part of the process. People that don’t take responsibility for the "how" quit when they fail because they think the process doesn’t work.
For example, I can tell you how to ride a bike, I can tell you how to drive a car, but you’re still not going to know how to do it until you do it wrong a lot until you get it right.
The difference between someone who gets "there" and someone who doesn’t get "there" is the person that doesn’t get "there" quits. The person who gets "there" doesn’t quit. That’s it.
Understanding failure can help you get "there" with less pain.
The real reason why we're avoiding "missing the mark" or "not meeting our expectation" is that we don't want to feel what we're going to feel when that (missing the mark..etc thought) happens.
So we FAIL AHEAD OF TIME to avoid future possible failure.
you are not alone my friend, we all do this. remember, it's just our brain keeping us safe. it doesn't mean there is anything wrong with you, or your brain. it means it's perfect and doing its job!
