Descent

"Every descent is for the sake of a future ascent"  
  


Never perceive a failure (descent) as an isolated event.  It's part of a learning curve.  Broaden your lens a little and you will see this temporary setback as a tiny cog in a huge engine of overall progress.

What paralyzes us the most when it comes to taking action is the fear of failure.  If you can program your brain to see everything that happens, no matter how bad it seems, as part of a process, then you can neutralize that fear.


Failure is a judgement that you make.  If you frame each "descent" (regression) in your life as a necessary phase of a future growth you will bounce out of every problem with relative ease.
