Is that bullshit to fail forward?
I've failed as a digital nomad, as an entrepreneur, as a son, as a grandson, as a friend, as a boyfriend, as a French citizen, as a French taxpayer. I have failed big time in most of my roles. I've failed continuously
Or maybe I have not. What if I accepted that my failures and my successes lived together? It's my responsability to make the effort to be nuanced, to find my balance. There's nothing worse than taking an extreme position and burning everything in the middle. Life is not like that. Life is what is in the middle
Of course, if I had to die tomorrow my life wouldn't look like it's worth much to a film director. However, the quality of my life, my level of satisfaction or my happiness —whatever how we want to call our measure of how well we're doing— don't rely on storytelling
At every moment I'm responsible to stay balanced, in the middle. I'm responsible to find the humbleness to recognize what I've done wrong and correct it. To find the ambition to recognize what I've done right and build on it. To find the strength to dominate my emotions. To find the peace to love myself and the others. To find the clarity to live in the moment. To find the simplicity to appreciate the moving landscape on the side of the road as well as the still landscape forever in front of me. To find the childishness to transform a negative interaction into a positive one. To find the courage to forgive. To find the patience to understand. To find the confidence to sit at the right place
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 😀🎄🎉😀
