Earlier this week, I conceived an article and got it typed on my phone. In order to furnish it, I embarked on the editing. Then, Boom! It’s all gone. What🤭😲😳? The whole page was blank! Every effort to re-do the action was proved abortive. For five minutes I was totally down. Seems my head went blank as soon as my typing page went blank. My God, what just happened?🤯😱
I began asking myself several questions. “What’s the meaning of these? 🤔🤔
Will I have to rewrite what I already concluded?😩
Is this a test to check my patient level?🧘
If it is, then I am ready to fail this test🙄😔 I won’t rewrite the article, I said to myself. Though my Spirit kept telling me to, but my mind was already made up.
I ignored the voice of my spirit😫😖. As a matter of fact, I shut myself down!😔😔because writing that particular article wasn’t easy for me. It was a real deal to me.
Unfortunately, Since that day, writing became an herculean task for me. Even if I had millions of insight to write, I couldn’t find myself typing again because of my previous experience. Should we call It discouragement or fear? Well, anyone you name it.
In my quest to prevent that experience from reoccurring, I had to change the App I use for typing documents. I made sure the app I was about to download has the “undo or re-do” tool, in case such experience occur next, I will be able to undo the error.🚧⏮️🔙↩️
Well, most times we find ourselves in more frustrating situations than the one I just narrated and we shut ourselves down in order to prevent ourselves from experience such situations again. And by so doing, we give up easily on our progress. We now become men whose sight only captures the IMPOSSIBLE in the POSSIBLE. You may have to read that again.
Most of the challenges we encounter in our endeavors are not to bring us down rather they come for our advancement. Though the situation may pose impossibility, but the reality is that it has the ability to open us up to a more sure way to possibility. The existence of darkness in an environment will always create the need for light in such vicinity.
Your ugly situation might be failed relationships, lost Job opportunities etc. Just because you’ve made several attempt and no positive results, doesn’t mean you should withdraw.
I understand our fear of repeating past mistakes can hinder us from moving forward. So we quit giving it all it takes, forgetting the fact that the moment we stop trying, we start dying.
I might have failed in rewriting the article but I didn’t stop writing, hence my fear birthed a new article. It became an insight to write to many who feels discouraged in taking another step to purpose.💪
Keen your eyes on this one 👀. If babies fails to make attempts to walk because of the fear of falling or getting hurt then they will never walk or crawl in their lives.👣
So I implore you,
- see your failures as an advancement strategy to become better.🤝💪
- Learn from your previous mistakes. Restructure your plans in order to avoid more errors!👩🔧🕵️👷
- Observe and see where you got it wrong in the past! 🕵️🕵️
You don’t have to back out at the scent of challenges! See the light at the end of the tunnel It can only get better when you keep giving it your all.
