Yes vitamin M is motivation and yes we need it daily. Without it, fear and doubt are likely to grow like that nasty viral-bacterial infection you got on your last trip that started the global chipmunk flu epidemic.
So with your daily cleansing, I’d like to offer you a healthy dose of vitamin M. It’s a quote that motivates me when I find myself dwelling on past “failures”.
“Don’t let Mistakes Get You Down” By Douglas Lurton
The Strong men and women bounce back after making mistakes. They have the courage to try to avoid repetition of errors and to improve. The weaklings make mistakes and don’t bounce back. They develop fear of trying again and having to make good. They wallow in regrets for past errors…. Remorse is a saboteur that can hold you back on any job and in any walk of life.
Babe Ruth whammed out home runs, but also fanned 1330 times and didn’t sulk about it. Thomas Edison made countless mistakes in his laboratories. Abraham Lincoln failed in many ventures. …But all of these and countless others in more obscure places had one thing in common – They didn’t let their mistakes get them down. They recognized that courage has magic in it, and they bounced back after failure and tried again – and won.”
My wish for you is that you never fear success or failure, and if you do, I hope you will not let it stop you. I hope you’ll choose courage and continue on your journey.
