Great read Denis. These words really spoke to me, “When I am aware of my underlying intention to every interaction then the surface level successes and failures are more easy to roll with”.
I am curious if your intention changes with every interaction? Or if you have a context for life that gives meaning.
I have also been pondering the reframing of failure. Spanx founder, Sara Blakely, has an uplifting view on failure. Her father was instrumental in changing the meaning.
Growing up he would ask what she had failed at that week. Failure no longer became about the outcome, win or lose, but the willingness to try.
She sees failure happening only if you don’t try.
Sara also says she tries to embarrass herself once in a while. She does this to remind herself to not fear embarrassment in front of people.
Like singing in an elevator. Or asking a question in a meeting that may not be the best to ask but she is curious about the answer.
How would reframing failure and resiliency to embarrassment change your life? Could this give a new context for learning for young children and adults?
This may allow for the creativity and freedom of entrepreneur learners. This may allow a love for learning and a passion for life.
Key to life is to have a vision that is bigger than yourself. When we are not wrapped up in our intellectual identities of who I am in relation to who you are. It becomes easier to put yourself out there in a way that can impact and inspire others to do the same.
