Intelligence Failure

Failure hurts. It sucks. Big-time. Be it an epic fail or a minor fail. And no, rationalization doesn’t work. Especially if you’re an all-or-nothing kind of person…like me.

And I’m going through the side-effects below right now (I’m somewhere between 3, 4 and 5)-

  1. Anger at self, anger at everything.
  2. Depression, listlessness.
  3. Withdrawal.
  4. Motivation.
  5. More motivation (this always comes with hard work, you know)
  6. And hopefully, we’d be lucky to get this- SUCCESS 🙂

    Yes! Thanks for the reminder! Sometimes it’s so hard to remember that around the corner from sadness is great motivation! I just have to push through it!
