I was just thinking about a problem I was having with someone. They were stuck, basically just reading and posting on Facebook and WhatsApp all day long. They didn’t have a job or a business, they just were on their phone, every spare minute they had. They were failing in life!!!
I thought how can they be happy?
Then my inner voice asked if am I happy failing at what I am doing? (I always start by thinking about someone else’s faults, and the voice begins to ask me the same question.)
Well, I am Not happy when I fail!!!
Then the voice said, “You will only be truly happy when you are happy no matter whether you are failing or not!!!! ( I know it’s hard to read, but don’t know how else to say it. My inner voice does not tell me how to write it, it just tells me.)
So, I need to be happy failing???
That is what I am doing right now, specifically, I have been learning how to trade the Forex market, and failing!!! My voice said I needed to be happy losing trades in order to start winning trades. WOW!!!
Why??? It said I can only learn from my losing trades, by being happy I lost. Weird!
If I am not happy about them, I block the information that is needed to gain the insight to trade profitably.
Now I think there is a different happy when one is profitable compared to when one loses. That the problem with language.
I think we all know how to be happy when we are doing well, but what is the true emotion when we are not. Probably not happy, but certainly not afraid, or angry or sad. I think it could be “How can I learn from this?” What is that emotion? I can’t name it.
Maybe you can find a word.
Let me know in the comments…
Now how about you? Are you happy, or are you angry about the things in your life that aren’t working? How about being happy that they aren’t working, and see what you begin to learn.
There is a concept about being in the present, the NOW. You know, that’s where God is. And, that’s where you are Right Now, and you are failing. That’s a fact, right? So why is failing such a bad thing? That’s where God is. So if God is in your failing, maybe it’s really not failing. Maybe it’s succeeding unless you believe God is against you, but how can that be? God is everything, in everything, everywhere, all the time. And if he wanted you to fail, all His creation would fall apart. Everything must progress to be a part of creation. So is there really failure…not really….can’t be!!!
Oh, you can have lots of arguments against what I just said, but what good would it do you? You can think I am failing and God is against me, or you can think that all the failures are there, so I can learn how to succeed!!
You pick which way you want to view things!!!
But I am going to be happy failing, and see what happens. There’s another thing, when I get an inspiration, I usually implement it. It’s called taking Action, and the first Action is changing one’s mind.
Well, we’ll see what happens. Keep you updated.
Another “Thing for You.”
