Why do we struggle to emerge from failures?
I struggled because I lacked Character
Character has 4 parts:
- Strength: It is resilience to withstand when things are not working out. Ability to emerge from past failures is character too. I kept looking for this outside, thinking others will help me. It is also believing in yourself & faith that good things will happen for you. I was weak within hence I gave up easily
Values: If your values are strong it can help you stand tall even when everything is crumbling. The soldier continues to fight a losing battle because he is committed.
Ability to live by values also shows character especially when the going is not good. I struggled, was a shaky character
Persistence: DOTS (Do One Thing Surely) even when fear & greed are at play. This is the toughest part & I could never do this well. Infact I have only persisted in one thing in my lifetime that is writing:)
Results & Expectations: Letting go of expectations & results is an important part of character. This is where fear & greed comes in too. We lose focus on action because focus is on results. Expectation is the root cause of misery. Letting go is a test of character. I was unable to let go
Do you have a strong character?
Where are you stuck?
