I had a close call in more ways than you, today. Some of those close calls were good news, and some of those close calls prevented really bad news by a moment of corrective action. My point? If we slip and not permanently fall, it’s always another chance. Getting it right comes down to knowing genuinely what does not work and doing always what genuinely does work.
The secret of that carpenter and preacher from the plains of Galilee:”As you believe, so shall you become”, he intimated. What did he mean by that. Could he have meant a lifetime of cause, effect and receiving the genuine and logical step of your efforts and persistence however they’re? Honestly, I know he meant that at the deepest levels when he preached that line. If life surpasses us, it is genuinely because we allow it, if we win, we caused that also in the sense of understanding where we neglected and doing it again in the ideal way later.
Indeed, reality comes down to adjustment rather than perfection on the first attempt. If we always got it right all of the time, we would have nothing to earn, do or live. Even God is intelligent enough to make it interesting for God, and presence is an obstacle course of interesting games anyhow. Earned winning always feels great, but cheated or unearned sure things mostly feel like something is missing. That’s the difference that makes the difference. When I think of training and winning for what I actually want, I really love the process as well as the result and it must be that way if you really want something to mean everything to you in a fantastic way.
I remember this old movie called”Click” about a man played by actor Adam Sandler that used a remote control to bypass the”bad parts” of his lifetime only to ultimately find he missed his whole life. Although it seemed like a”stupid, small metaphor” of a movie, I get the message now. For things to mean anything to us, we must love the process as well as the result. I get it, and I hope you do too.
But, face it, to achieve everything, you have to love the process as well as the results.
Now, I don’t mean try overtly for perfection, but I do mean perfection stems from enjoying the process in addition to appreciating the end achievements from the process too, and doing what you love to do always,”warts”, challenges, and all, as well as the enjoyable points.
