Just Do The Impossible

When something goes wrong, people often try to comfort me by focusing on how I feel about myself. “You did all that you could.” “It isn’t your fault.” “You went above and beyond in tough circumstances.”

When something goes wrong, people often try to comfort me by focusing on how I feel about myself.

“You did all that you could.”
“It isn’t your fault.”
“You went above and beyond in tough circumstances.”

And my favorite, “Stop being so hard on yourself.”

But it’s not about me or how I feel about myself. It’s about the goal, the mission, the results. 

If you want to do the impossible, don’t waste energy evaluating yourself. Let go of your ego and focus on creative problem-solving. This means digging deep to find the root cause of a problem or the core issue you want to resolve in its simplest form. It doesn’t matter if the situation is fair. It doesn’t matter if it’s someone else’s fault. It doesn’t matter if it’s soo much for one person to handle or people say you’re crazy or you’re being too hard on yourself. You can either accept things as they are or fight like hell to change them. 

Which will you choose?
