Errrtttt…. [clicks on post]
Always always always, my bad news posts get 500% more traction than my positive ones.
That is not an exaggeration. 500% <--- you bastards! :)
Most of y'all gingerly clicked on this post hoping to see that I've failed miserably - which I have, but we will go into more detail about that in a bit.
But anyways, it's f*cking irresistible, isn't it?
It's like a car accident.
"Oh the horror! I can't turn away!"
You aren't a ghoulish monster for being curious about someone else's public shame or pain. Everyone does it.
"The bottom line is this, people love seeing other people fail because most people fear failure above all else."
But I'm not most people + neither are you...
I f*ck up all the time.
In fact, I f*ck up this morning [installing an exterior storm door handle upside down]
I love f*cking up.
F*cking up teaches me more than succeeding easily ever has.
Determination in the face of adversity
Pumping the brakes on hubris
Mad unconditional love for myself
I have no emotional attachment to failure.
It doesn't bother me in the slightest.
For me, no matter what happens I am okay with feeling any feelings that come up.
Does that sound cocky? It's not.
Cocky is thinking you will succeed no matter what.
I'm saying it would be nice to succeed the first time I try something, but I'm confident that I'll be okay either way.
"I will go after anything I want + most times I don't succeed the first time."
Did you hear me or do you need to read that again?
I will go after anything I want + most times I don't succeed the first time.
In fact, the things I am most proud of are things I f*cked up the most until I got them right.
Awwwwww, breath that sh*t out sister. [STRONG exhale]
You have been given permission to not be perfect off the bat.
It's that wonderful?
Now you can do anything that has been on your heart, fail + fail epically, my Bad Bitch.
It's going to teach you so much + it's 100% better than never doing "it" at all.
+ when you f*ck up, ask yourself, "What does this experience have to teach me? What should I do differently next time?"
Maybe you need mindset work
Maybe you need to be more prepared
Maybe you need to be less rigid
Maybe you need more information
Maybe you need accountability
Maybe you need a coach
Maybe all of those things, but it NEVER EVER means that you don't deserve it or that you'll never get it right.
