One of my favorite quotes of Steve Jobs is the following:
You can’t connect the dots looking forward;
you can only connect them looking backwards.
So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.
So true, so difficult. In times of despair and doubt it’s incredibly hard to trust.
Many times we are let down by people, or situations don’t develop the way we hoped or expected. It feels like a punch in the stomach and it often leaves us in self doubt.
How could I be so naiv? We ask ourselves. Our mind is busy with disappointment, anger doubt, regret, and other negative feelings.
Have you ever watched a child learning something new?
It’s very impressive. When they start walking they keep falling over and over again. They laugh about it. And then they try again. And one day they start walking.
If you are in a situation of doubt , let go.
Don’t hold on to your fear, hold on to your goal. You will reach it.
