How to fail successfully
When things aren't going my way, I tend to attribute it to some personality flaw on my part. It's as if I believe that there's something innate in me that prevents me from getting what I want. This is a mistake. This is just my ego trying to soothe itself by absorbing all of the blame. I know this, but I still keep falling into the same pattern. So I'm making this post to remind myself. Like Barry Corbin says in No Country For Old Men: "You can't stop what's coming. It ain't all waiting on you. That's vanity."
