As little kids, we haven’t had the time or the brain power to intellectualize our world, to develop false ideas about our capabilities. In this video, Jay Shetty recreates a conversation he had with a new father. They observe the child and recall that all of us learned to walk by falling over and over again. But we always got back up and tried again. We didn’t even think about it or get discouraged and think “this is too hard.” We just got back up and, after a while, we all became expert walkers.
Just because we are older does not mean we have to impose limitations and feel irreversibly crushed when we fail. Tapping into our younger selves can help us readopt the mentality of blind persistence. Of course we are going to fail. It’s part of succeeding!
Check out this impactful conversation about failing like a child. Share this post to remind others that we’ve all been persistent since the beginning and don’t have to stop now.
