Arete

I have blogged about notes from the universe many times. My darling Meg forwarded me a link to Thinkarete.com and I love it just as much as notes from the universe. In some ways it feels like a bit meatier.

Areté--a word that literally means virtue or excellence but has a deeper meaning...something closer to “constantly striving to reach your highest potential.”


Today I got this from them:

"Success is the result of good judgment, good judgment is a result of experience, experience is often the result of bad judgment."

- Tony Robbins

Hmmmm…so if success is the result of good judgment, and good judgment is a result of experience and experience is often the result of bad judgment, then

Where do we start?!!?

Well, failing, of course!

(Quit taking yourself so seriously and…) Get on it!

:)

Emerson tells us that all life is an experiment anyway, so what’re you worried about?!?

I recently read this other quote...now I can't remember where...and I am paraphrasing here...about how everything we see as a failure without a doubt we will oneday see as a success. Without a doubt. Even if it doesn't happen for 50 years, eventually every little thing we see as a failure we will one day see as a success. Every one. With out a doubt.

It really struck me. I had a deep sigh of relief as I felt in my bones the truth of it.

{{I have been away from blogging for a few weeks. Hope you are having a lovely summer!}}

XO,
Melba
