Not every reality is easy to accept! Especially when it doesn’t fall in alignment with what you expected.
There are some truths about yourself that you sometimes pray it weren’t the case. And sometimes accepting this truth hurts so bad. But doing so will only give you an opportunity to recreate a better version of yourself!
When I woke up this morning, I received a call from a very good friend. And he was outlining some areas in my life which I failed in…!!!
I really never wanted to fail in that area….but I realized I failed. And so I have been asking myself “What can I do to make this right this 2019?”
You know…it’s lot easier for us to accept what we so much crave to hear, than the things we don’t! Unfortunately, there is no way we can move forward if we do not redress the “little foxes” (failures) that pull us back…
To have thought that I tussled throughout 2018 without realizing this mistake make we wonder even more!
Sometimes, we won’t be able to see the problem. But those around us will. We need to be open minded, humble and willing to admit and take full responsibility of our mistakes and failures in life, and be ready to face it’s consequences heads on!
And so I decided to set a measurable goal to set things right again! I gave myself as dateline December 31st. And so I’m looking forward to man up and get this task done!
So I grabbed a few lessons today on what to do when the bitter truth comes knocking:
- Accept it: Yes…..do accept it….it’s so hard to do so…. You get that feeling of total disappointment in yourself. But you have to accept it!
- Do not justify: There is always a tendency to give reasons why you failed. The problem is you failed. And it’s no crime….its part of the growing process! We are not machines programmed to be 100% efficient. We are humans and we err. And so never be ashamed to admit your failure!
- Do not walk on the self pity lane: As funny as it seems….this is the worst of consider! You start feeling you are rejected and no one understands what happened and what made you fail. No one’s responsible for your failure but you. Shake off this misguided attitude of self grief and pity that might stop you from taking positive actions
- How can I fix this?: After all has been done, if this question is not asked and goals set, then there’s a problem. This is the point where you decide to wipe off failure by taking up positive actions and adopting behavioural changes to realize set goals!
- Take up action
