Midnight Motivations and Musings 43…


A whole lot of times, for fear of being hurt, or losing out, we choose to sit on the fence rather than dabbling and trying our best.

Easy does it quite alright and it’s essential to exercise caution before jumping into any venture or as the case may be a relationship.

However, we cannot because of previous bad experience rule out every other opportunity to try again.

Like my people would say, we cannot because of fear of shooting, avoid going to war when the need arises. For example, the fact that Tim broke your heart, doesn’t mean John will do so. For all you know, John might be that partner you’ve been seeking for.

Secondly, because one business endeavour failed, you cannot write off all other possibilities with the wave of the hand.

Rather, it makes more sense to apply the learnings from the previous experience, that way, you stand a better chance at succeeding.

  1. I think Dray’s post on Jim Carrey’s commencement speech made the point – we can fail at stuff we hate doing, so we might as well take a chance on the things we love. Thanks for the inspiration!!!


  2. You’ve taken the words out of my mouth. Don’t block your blessings. I was just blessed today with something I will never forget (check out my recent post). Blocking my blessings set me in circles, repeating the same steps, but never achieving what I truly wanted to achieve. Your post just affirmed the retrieval of my blessing today.
