The first fish that left the water realized that moving about with what it had. That first fish didn’t make itself wrong, didn’t make life wrong, wasn’t frustrated… instead it realized walking with fins was too slow… so it started to realize it needed something that was more suitable for land… legs. That is how it was in sync… The fish used its fins until eventually they became legs… of course, over time… but you’ll get the lesson, how this applies to you, I hope.
This is how Life works, that is how evolution works. Until you introduce humans… that is.
I have always been a curious kid. I always pondered, experimented, took things apart… I never asked questions, never asked others to solve my quandaries. I like the process, you see.
My examples, in my teaching, in my coaching, show that I like and understand machines. I like to think of myself as Edison who potentially never solved the problem of the light bulb… and who enjoyed every failure as much as the previous one…
Solutions, answers, cheap successes are for losers… and I am not one. lol. I am a winner.
What the heck does that mean… right?
Being a winner is an experience you have of yourself… not reality. There is no such thing in life ‘winner’. Without saying/thinkin it, winner doesn’t exist. Unless you say ‘winner’, in life, in objective reality there is no such thing. And yet, the experience of being a winner, or more often of being a loser is very real.
It all depends on what you say. On your expectations. And on your results.
If you intend to win every time you do something, your experience in life will be, most likely, being a loser.
If you expect things to be easy and you are unprepared for them to be the way they are… often difficult, often needing effort, your experience of yourself will be an experience of being a loser.
There are no losers in life… only the experience… The result the capacity of foresight would tell you ahead of time, so you could, maybe, perchance learn from it? No? Not you? OK… no problem. You always have what you caused. You cause your own experience… just like I do.
I expect to be wrong, or mostly wrong, most of the time. And I am never disappointed. Or frustrated.
When I look, given this filter I have, the people I can see that have left their footprints in the sand of time are other people who love or loved failures.
It’s a different game than most people play. Most people want to maintain an image of themselves and they play it safe, play to “remain” in a winning streak, afraid to touch anything that could say they are not that.
Life, like a machine: in working order won’t reveal how it works, a life in working order won’t show what makes it work, what are the moves…
You see what is going on from the discrepancies between what is and what seems to be the function of something…
…and when that is your main focus, (what is the function of something) then you can get to th
