I had a close call in more ways than you, now. A few of those close calls were good news, and some of those close calls prevented very bad news by a moment of corrective actions. My point? If we slide rather than permanently fall, it’s always another chance. Getting it right comes down to knowing genuinely what doesn’t work and doing always what actually does work.
The secret of the carpenter and preacher in the plains of Galilee:”As you think, so shall you become”, he intimated. Could he have meant a lifetime of cause, effect and receiving the genuine and logical step of your efforts and persistence however they’re? Honestly, I know he meant that in the deepest levels when he preached online. If life surpasses us, it’s genuinely because we allow it, if we win, we caused that also in the sense of knowing where we neglected and doing it in the ideal way later.
Indeed, reality comes down to alteration rather than perfection on the first attempt. If we always got it right all the time, we would have nothing to earn, live or do. Even God is smart enough to make it interesting for God, and presence is an obstacle course of intriguing games anyway. Earned winning always feels great, but cheated or unearned certain things mainly feel like something is missing. When I think of winning and training for what I actually want, I really love the process in addition to the result and it must be that way in case you really want some thing to mean everything to you in a fantastic way.
I recall this old film called”Click” about a man played by actor Adam Sandler that used a remote control to bypass the”bad parts” of his lifetime only to finally discover he missed his entire life. Even though it seemed like a”dumb, small metaphor” of a film, I get the message today. For things to mean anything to us, we have to love the process in addition to the outcome. I get it, and I expect you do too.
But, face it, to achieve everything, you have to love the process in addition to the results.
Now, I don’t mean try overtly for perfection, but I really do mean perfection stems from enjoying the process in addition to appreciating the ending achievements from the process too, and doing what you love to do always,”warts”, challenges, and all, in addition to the enjoyable points.
