Coping mechanisms

36 STASHED IDEAS

Every time you decide to do the easy thing, instead of the right thing, you are shaping your identity.

If you want to change where you are going, you need to do what's right. Self-discipline is built one step at a time, especially when you don't feel like doing it. For example, when the alarm clock goes off, you can choose to hit the snooze button and go back to sleep, or you can get out of bed and make progress towards your goals.

You‘re Wrong About Everything (but so am I).

Uncertainty is the enemy of growth. Instead of seeking for certainty, we should be in a steady search for doubt.

Uncertainty stops us from judging others, it prompts the unnecessary stereotyping and predispositions that we normally have.

Uncertainty relieves us of our judgment of ourselves. We don't know if we are lovable or not; we don't know how attractive we are; we don't know how prosperous we could potentially become. The only way to fulfill these things is to remain uncertain of them and be open to finding them out through experience.

Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker.

Failure is delay not defeat.

It is a temporary detour,

not a dead end.
