The head is a vicious little bugger …
If you excuse the term,
But I think it’s a suitable one as your mind can be so incredibly violent.
Trouble is - you never learn anything if you don’t make mistakes.
But if you listened to your head you wouldn’t ever do anything to put yourself in a place where you would learn anything.
It’s not fear of failure - to be more precise it’s fear of other people witnessing your failure.
I can fail in private all I like and it doesn’t matter -
It’s when you step up and try something and fail in public,
That’s when the mind wants you to cease and desist and “what were you thinking anyway?”
If you listened to your head you would stay the same, forever.
That’s ok for some, and I FULLY understand why -
But I think it’s not for you because you’re reading this,
And you want more from life than staying the same.
The rewards of managing the brutality of your own thoughts are huge.
I think that’s pretty obvious.
One side effect that is relatively unknown though -
Is that you become more understanding and less judgemental of others.
You get nicer to yourself and more forgiving and patient and knowing of how you tick -
And it automatically follows.
You become a better parent, leader, teacher, mentor, friend to any one.
Because you’re living it.
You’re IN it.
I can’t recommend learning and practicing meditation enough.
It truly is a life saver -
And means you can do the things you want to do while managing the self-sabotage as it tries to come.
The Ishayas’ Ascension meditation in particular is easy and simple and powerful, and enjoyable to practice as well.
Learn it and jump in: practice it and see how far it’ll take you.

Mistakes are essential things.
Unpleasant to the ego -
But pleasant when you get used to being uncomfortable in that.
A small trade off - a slight squeeze, but one that boosts you forward.
