Eight of Swords as Advice
Let Go Of the Fear Of FailureNo great journey is going to be totally free of failure. Failure is what teaches us what not to do, and it tells us exactly what kinds of challenges we are capable of overcoming. At the same time, it gives us a point of reference from which to create future goals; if you couldn’t do it before, then you may aspire to be able to do it one day. Many people hate a challenge and the possibility of failure, and it results in them giving up prematurely so as to avoid the humiliation of losing. At the same time, this may result in a period of stagnation, as most forms of significant progress can’t be achieved without first accepting the possibility that you may fail. However, the strongest people are those who can keep going, and will continue to get back up even after they have been knocked down time and time again. Look at these challenges as an opportunity to better yourself and prove your worth. Keep your eyes peeled for possible lessons, as they may teach you how to avoid these same issues in the future. If you do get knocked down, take a moment to carefully consider what led you to this point. What did you do wrong? What can you do next time to produce better results? By shifting your mentality so as to take every setback as a learning opportunity, you will greatly increase your ability to visualize a hopeful future filled with success. Even if you have to fail a few times first, you will eventually learn exactly what the situation needs in order to produce a success. Continue to put forth your best effort and strive for success, but don’t be surprised when you get tripped up a few times along the way.
