On average, we talk ourselves into thinking we’re going to fail, more than we think we’re going to succeed and continue to live our lives like that.
It takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile, but smiling has more benefits than frowning, so why not smile anyway? Perhaps there’s a different way we can look at failing then. Failing gives us our most treasured lesson that there is always a reason for failing and that even though we have failed, we can always bounce back next time, even stronger.
Failing allows to seek out the opportunity to learn how and where we’ve gone wrong. Perhaps then we can think about succeeding instead of thinking we’re going to fail all the time.
