Each of us is given a gift at birth called our mind. We spend our lives trying to develop it (or not) and skills that help allow us to experience success in many different phases of life. As we learn it all from the rudimentary activities of function to the most complex ideas, our mind helps us develop goals and make the plans that allow us to achieve them. Our brain is our best friend and most valuable tool. It is designed to learn and grow and has a nearly limitless capacity to accomplish nearly anything. There are some simple things that we can do to enhance the process and avoid destroying the potential that our valuable brain possesses. Improving your mind is a full-time job.
How many great ideas are destroyed before they have a chance to take root? How many are discarded by the neglect of time? Due to fear of failure or a lack of self-confidence? The time to wait is over and the time for action is here. Taking action is THE ingredient that turns the perfect combination of raw materials into a masterpiece. A life is defined by the actions one takes or in many cases the inaction.
I wanted to share a few of the things I have learned about grasping your life by the throat through action. none of them are very difficult to do but they can be daunting. I continually have to remind myself about these things.
If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
by Jonathan Hilton Day 53
As we move through life, there are a few things that become clear are going to be a permanent part of our existence. No matter how things are going they are going to change. We have a finite time to exist, accomplish and live, and we are going to make mistakes.
If mistakes are an inevitable part of life, and important I think it is important to start to question why we are so afraid of them. In fact people lie and mislead every day to avoid being associated with a mistake.
