Feeling like a loser? That’s because you are…

Everyone fails. Listen, even Terminator failed, so unless you are some sort of a bionic, super-human that landed from another planet – you are a loser, too.

Everyone fails. But what’s different about those who fail and get up, and get going, and those who actually assume the position of a loser and become paralyzed by their failure, is that the second group doesn’t accept the failure. They don’t “own” it. They avoid admitting the fact that failing is a necessary, required step when you are learning something new. And guess what – we never stop learning. We never stop learning how to be a good human and how to co-exist with other humans. Even when you think you’ve got it all figured out, life throws a curveball at you, and you are back to square one.

So unless we admit that failure is not a phenomenon, but a totally normal, an expected part of life, we will keep feeling like losers.

Drop the programming, and immediately you will feel better, knowing that you are not losing, but learning – being a human.

Now, if excuse me, I’ve got some losing to do… (Hashtag loosing.)
