The Art of Failure

10 12 2010

Being afraid of failure is STUPID . (<— I should write the book)

Success is 99% Failure - HondaI freely admit I am a moron.  I’m am terrified of failure, coupled with my shrieking fear of change I’m nigh on crippled half the time.  The other half I just rock and stare at the wall praying it will all go away now, it never does you know.

You wouldn’t think it, (or maybe you would) but I really am.  And that’s with my knowing why it’s stupid to be worried about failure.  But obviously I don’t KNOW it.  I know on some intellectual, theoretically level but it’s not part of who I am, yet!  I mean look at the whole, quit my morning job business.  Scary, but then what did I do with the whole thing?  And then I was deliberating over that whole online course I was taking, now I’m just sorta floating around trying to choose a direction to move in.

Why?  What’s the big hold up?  I’m smart, I know how to do things, I’m extremely good at most thing when I put my mind to it.  Hell I’m good at them when I don’t even put my mind to it.  What is it that’s holding me back from…. taking over the world ( 😀 per-say)?

Fear, mind boggling terror.  Of what?  Failure.  That’s right, I’m a moron.  I’m completely freaked that I’m going to try to do something, loose a bunch of money, make some horrible mistake and look like a fool.  Really what do I care?  No offense but I don’t really care what ‘people’ think, so what the hell is my problem?

Here I am, telling you, how stupid it is to be afraid to fail.  Hypocrite!!

Well, screw it! Hypocrite or not, I’m telling you all (and myself) to stop it.  Stop holding yourself back, reach as far as you can.  So what if you fall on your face, get back up and reach again. k8132 If all you ever do and try is what you’re confidant of, you will never even come close to reaching any kind of potential.  You will be like everyone else, mediocre, average, CRAP!!!

Well, what’s the art then?

Do you have to fail?

That’s pretty much it, isn’t it?  You need to stop being scared, and the only truly effective way I know to stop being Read the rest of this entry »





Little Stories: Things that made me Smile.

7 09 2010

On Sunday, aside from the running out of gas fiasco (which by the way was so ridiculous because I was ‘saving the day’ and then ran out of gas… fail).

But what got me giggling and kept me going for hours, was turning around to see one of my friends bum.  Amazing lol, his shorts were torn from belt line almost to the end of the leg seam.

Too bad he wasn’t wearing more fantastic underpants, like tighty whities, or something in a nice shade of fuchsia.  When I asked him why he was wearing them, it turns out that he has two pairs of the same short, and these were the ones he was throwing out.  But when leaving the house he thought they were the good ones tossed them on and ran out the door.  Not realizing his ass was to the wind until he got to the gaming place.  😀  FANTASTIC  totally made my day .. tee hee.

And today on may way home from work, I was waiting at the light, pondering baking and snacks for my party when I noticed the dude directing traffic was mighty into it.  And when I say into it, I mean he was bouncing around like a happy puppy enthusiastically directing, stopping, and other such trafficy things.

He wasn’t nearly as exciting and fun as this guy, but he was clearly really taking it seriously and was rather enthusiastic.  IT amused me to no end, must have been his first day or something 😛





Bad Mood = Epic Fail

17 03 2009

failSo this past week I have all kinds of new things to do and think about….. and do you know all the things I accomplished?  It was pure shocking and amazing!  I managed to accomplish nothing… as a matter of fact I think I actually managed to anti-accomplish things.   I wrote most of a big blog post about this cool project I’m working on .. a work out thing I’m doing with my friends.  Which I promise to actually fill you in on later… scouts honor (wow that’s fun not being a scout and all tee hee)

So this weekend, one friend was out of town, and I had loads of free time and what do you think I did?  If you guessed absolutely nothing… even less than nothing like pig out on crap and not do a freaking lick of exercise.. not a sit up, no run, bike, swim, walk, not even a push up.   This equals epic fail.. especially if you consider what I’m doing with my friends on this blog… seriously.. I’ll leave the true impact of the disaster of my weekend as a Read the rest of this entry »
