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!}}
