Happy weekend, my friends! Success and failure are two words we use describe the quality of the results we achieve in our lives.
We often evaluate ourselves using these words and others do as well. We tend to evaluate our relationships, our finances, our careers, and other aspects of our lives in these stark terms, as if we get a pass or fail grade.
At their worst, these two words can paralyze us. We can become afraid of both failure and success. So, we get stuck or do just enough to keep us in a murky mediocrity that cannot be described with either word.
A few years ago, I wrote a very brief parable about a simple way to release ourselves from the twin fears of failure and success.
I recorded it this evening and posted it to my YouTube channel. I hope you’ll find it useful in moving these two words out of the road that leads to your dreams,
Wherever you are on your journey today, remember to let your kindness start with you.
I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment.
I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company.
I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
