Topic 16: A Little Braggin’

“Brag a little”

This is a little awkward. I mean you are supposed to be humble. I am going to treat this kind of like the “what is your greatest strength?” question they ask you in job interviews.

This is something I do pride myself on a little if only because it’s something I see so rarely. We all make mistakes, it’s part of being human, but it’s about what you do after the mistakes have been made. Do you learn from them and move forward or are you constantly attacked by your failures? I exercise the former and it has guided me pretty well. If you accept that failure is an inevitability that everyone experiences in one way or another you can accept it, reassess the situation, and replot the course. This is really what I think my bragging is about. Resilience. If you want to accomplish something, anything bad enough it will happen. There will be setbacks, for that I am sure. If you can deal with them and keep moving forward than you can accomplish pretty much anything (within the physical laws of the universe). That’s what I do and that’s what I’m strutting all around about.
