Nobody wants to loose their grip.

It happens, Five O, maybe or not.

Do not freeze, don’t get angry,

This just keeps going on and off.

The end of stability or the weekend off.

Making sense of negativity is hard to do.

The Difference Between Success And Failure

After meditation on two great ideas, there is a third that may shine a little light on a big problem.

First, “The Secret”, by Earl Nightongale may be dated but it was the start of something new, namely self-improvement.

Advice is nothing new, “If” by Rudyard Kipling wrote a poem to his son with the point of view of a concerned human being.

There is also a philosophy that states it is best to define your terms and be specific as possible about your predictive science.

So with this in mind, ‘Success’ is a triumph or a win which is part of an axiomatic idea that strikes through it on the way to failure.

Failure is an attempt at winning something being practiced to produce a desired outcome, but does not work.

Many people advise trying until the outcome, win or success is won. But this is a false impression.

Correlation shows something like a bell curve. Lots of practice for various degrees of success and failure.

So maybe there is something to Kipling’s advice, “If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters just the same.”

Personal development can also get you on the road to success. Yet, mostly it is education and other forms of work that the correlations show as outcomes.

Many of us suffer and need help along the way to personal improvement or any other form or difference in our outcomes.

Perhaps your outcomes are more alike than you would like to know. A few are successes and some are failures.

To try again is probably in the cards but prepare for the next failure.

It is a normal outcome that becomes an experience to live and learn. So does the success. Preparation works for both outcomes.

Location may vary and resources too, focus on the process, execution and learning from experience is the goal.

Along the way share and accept help that is available and try to do your best.

It’s gems like Nightingale’s ‘Secret’ and Rudyard “If” that make all the difference between success and failure.

Life’s experience is always about both and we are here to live in peace with all the experience that’s part of it.

You may want to check out the latest celebrity scientist whose take on reality is a little deeper than most.

Seriously, some cutting edge science about reality.

Getting To Accept China

People have much in common,

To say that we think and Dream is an understatement that adds to the need to learn about the way and culture of a people or country.

With the uncommon good that can benefit people, there is always more to learn about a country.

Best wishes to all regarding shared interest and learning more about each other in an ever expanding world.

The Will

He blew his mind out with a kind of drunkenness, or sleep deprivation, or simple distraction.

Or was it a kind of duel personality, the one who lives and the one that survives.

I call these two parts of myself the Philosopher and the Animal:

Philosopher: I must practice restraint and give up desire, for it is prudent to learn from aversion and do no harm.

Animal: I want what I want, give me it now, I need to eat!

P: I see it is wise to be a good neighbor like I strive to be good to myself. To me, the good life means to use proper impressions that do no harm.

A: I will it, now, I will kill or die for it now.

P: You can be my friend but do not try to kill me or I will be forced to restrain you.

A: I am cunning and will not kill you, now what will you give me?

P: I can not bargain with you my friend, but I will not harm you and will help you from harming yourself or others.

A: Then you are in my debt. You can pay me with your life and then I will take everything.

P: I am sure you will try, but for my part, I am grateful for my life and that is why I am grateful to have you as a friend.

My debt is the job of the animal.

My will is the job of the philosopher.

To find a balance between these parts of myself is my ultimate challenge.

I believe we need to collaborate and cooperate with these two selves to learn to live, laugh and love.

“If” by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you are blaming you…

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those to Imposters just the same…

If you can fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run.

Yours is the world and everything that’s in it and you will be a man my son.
