You know what’s great about hitting rock bottom, there’s only one way left to go, and that’s up!- Buster Moon
I absolutely love the movie SING and have probably seen it more than five times 😀 The quote above is one that hit me the hardest from the movie. Sometimes we fear failure so bad that we do all we can in order not to fail. But then there are times when failure is inevitable and there we are face down at rock bottom. So what do you do when you hit rock bottom? Cry, get depressed, shut the world out, stop trying, stay off the grid and the list goes on.
While reading The Secret the other day, the writer was trying to explain how we attract the things we think about. If we think thoughts of wealth, we’d attract thoughts leading to wealth and if we think thoughts of loss, we’d attract other thoughts that eventually lead to a loss manifesting. But he went on to give examples of people, who get wealth, lose it and get it back. How they get it back? By letting go of the negative thoughts of loss and thinking about wealth once again.
Sometimes you have to fail in order to let go of the fear of failure. You have to hit rock bottom, to put an end to the thoughts of falling down. And the great thing about hitting rock bottom is that there’s only one way left to go, and that’s up!
I’m learning to think more positive thoughts and let go of the negativity that comes with failing. And the fear of failure isn’t a big deal anymore now that I’ve failed. I’m more like; “Now that I’ve failed, that’s over with, let’s get on to something more successful.” Likewise, don’t allow the negative thoughts keep you grounded to the bottom, learn what you’ve gotta learn and move on. It’s not easy, but I’ve discovered one baby step everyday leads the way.
Have you ever failed or hit rock bottom? How did you get out of it? Let’s discuss in the comment section! Thanks!
