Neo never bent the spoon. He only learned to bend himself. There is a simple but profound truth in that observation. The greatest work is not to master a mechanism, only to master the self. Exercise discipline, strengthen resilience, and control counterproductive desires.
It's easier to create the image of an insurmountable obstacle than it is to accept and reclaim our own power. Too often we allow fear induced inaction to protect us from failure and embarrassment.
The lesson I’m learning right now is that the stumbles and setbacks are absolutely necessary to attain and keep the success we envision for ourselves. No two ways about it. The game changes forever when we transmute the fear of failure into the excitement of an epic comeback.
