I believe what determines our successes or failures results from the battling opposites inside us and on which opposite we focus to explode and which opposite we manage to implode.
Opposites co-exist everywhere. This realization triggered the idea of this post.
We humans face the same have opposite forces that exist in whatever we do. We all face success and failure. We all stretch our possibilities and fold them. We all humans stretch with hope and contract with despair.
- Why then do some people throw their hands in the air when they fail while others continue and use failure as a stepping-stone to success?
- Why do some people have the passion and drive to keep moving whereas others sink in despair?
- Why do traits make the forces of success greater than the forces of failures?
- What is the fuel that does not deplete in successful people and is it different from the fuel that fills failing people?
- Is it how we react that implodes success or expands failure?
It is that we ignite a passion for what we do that keeps us moving. Alternatively, we do the opposite, shrink our passion, and become impassionate to reaching our goals.
All the above questions have opposites battling inside us. Success and failure, passionate and impassionate, renewing self-fueling, and depleting self-fueling are examples of battling opposites inside us.
The light of success and the dark of failure exist in every human body. It is our bias to negativity that causes the darkness to cloud obscure dim and us the light of success.
The brave hearts of successful people had faith that failure is a learning experience and is not the end. They have the passion of motivation to keep their endurance and persistence. They have dreams and reality working together. They have the imagination to diversify possibilities and focus attention. They have the inner compass to go north and reverse to the south if circumstances demand so while keeping their faith that success shall come.
It is the battling of opposite feelings, passions, thinking and theorizing, and applying that make them realize their potential to store energy and when to turn this energy into another form of activity purposefully
It is the realization of when to go fast and when to slow down and pause.
