(If you can’t see the video, click through to the post, or check out the YouTube video)

While I’ve been talking a lot about the self-image, I thought I’d extend the discussion about personal transformation to some familiar territory: How we lose hope when we experience a setback.

The message in this video is extremely important for staying on course, without giving up on our goals when they’re not met (and in the timeline we’ve set for ourselves).

Hope you find the video beneficial, and let me know your thoughts about the video in the comments.

I haven’t considered success as “degrees of success”. Always thought of it as 1 || 0. Success || failure. My only consolation was at least I tried, at least I put myself out there and I can only stretch that much before beating myself up :P

Questions are popping in my mind but I find answers in the next video :)

Bloggylife, the binary thinking of success or failure is simply inaccurate. It has no significance in real life.

The idea that you “at least” put yourself out there is self-image thinking, because you’re contented with an excuse, rather than continue pursuing your goals.

The point is, you don’t have to *justify* your failures. You simply have to learn from them, without identifying with them.
