Aside: Failure

Thursday 24 November 2011, 3.45pm HKT

Scared child

Letting fear of failure overcome your attempt makes failure certain.

You obviously have been thinking things through, otherwise you wouldn’t be having this fear. But if you had been thinking things through, you shouldn’t be having such a fear.

Your fear of failure, then, is that you actually haven’t been thinking things through. It is a lack of thinking on your part.

You are then letting your attempt to be gripped by your thoughtlessness.

You are being malicious to yourself, and that is unforgivable.

Instead, why don’t you think
if you’re undertaking the wrong attempt?

If you have so much fear in you,
might you not be doing things the wrong way?

“Question your answer.” (Grandpa)
