Surrender – Let Go and Let God (or Higher Power)

I always attribute any lack of success to myself. I will think it's because I was inadequate or my direct doing that led to the "failure"... I do not attribute any deciding factor to other people (potential clients). I will always think it's 100% my doing that led to them deciding not to buy/explore buying. I guess this is my mistake and downfall. I put the entire blame on myself. So I carry the whole weight of the "failure" on my own shoulders. I mean it's not always "about me". There are multiple reasons why the sale didn't go through... And I must recognise and acknowledge that. Instead of thinking it's *always me* (Low Self Esteem patterns in Codependency), I need to surrender and know that what will be will be. There's a saying: "God’s will most often happens in spite of us, not because of us." I need to remember that. So that I won't beat myself up to a pulp inside. So that I will learn to be kind to myself. So that I know whatever happens is as intended by my Higher Power. And my time will come. My time to shine, my time of achievement, my time of "success

Rome was not built in a day

This is a reminder to myself. To keep at whatever that I've started, whatever that I'm going. I tend to want to seek the "BEST", fastest, most effective, fail safe path to "success". If I sense a hint of uncertainty, that failure may be lurking, or the path may not lead to success, then I drop it, change gears, go on some other path. That said, I've never been a good finisher. Always starting things, but find it hard to finish and finish well. What affects me sometimes is the desperation - financial desperation. It is an exhilarating thought, the notion of (almost total?) freedom, to choose to do whatever one pleases or decides - work-wise - when one is self-employed. There's no boss to blame or hate. YOU are the boss. With this freedom, being in the driver's seat is scary. And I always second guess myself, and tend to be hard on myself. The financial desperation is also very real and pertinent. Nonetheless, if I change gears as easy as I flip a switch, I won't get much done. Results don't come easy or instantaneously. I have to keep working at it, and building whatever it is I want to achieve. I don't have illusions of grandeur, I'm simply fighting for my survival. And I hope I remember that the next time I think of dropping everything to try something new and fancy with what seems a shorter path to accomplishment - whatever is too good to be true probably is
