Action cures failures. And that’s a fact. No matter how massive your defeat. You didn’t get what you’ve wanted. That sucks, very much. There may be moments when you want to dig yourself under the ground as deep as possible. Or go into some retreat. Hold on! Make a quick analysis.
Ask yourself: ”Does this activity makes me happy? If the answer is “no”- forget about it, but if it’s a “yes,” then declare to yourself: “I’m doing it again starting now.” Push yourself a little harder and turn frustration into a dedication.
The faster you’ll make this decision the better. In other words, you tell yourself: “I refuse to suffer.” To what your mind probably responds something like: “What do you mean you’re refuse?! Are you kidding me?! I’ve already pre-planned your depression for the following year, what I’m gonna do now?” That’s the moment when you act.
When you do this first step towards attaining your goals, your mind will say: “I see... Why didn’t you tell me before?!” And now with the first action made, and your mind on your side, you set yourself up for a beautiful journey while avoiding unnecessary suffering.
As a result, you’ll be much better self then you were when you failed, and that’s golden. Now your mind and body are well-prepared to tackle the challenge. Good luck!
