You've been thinking about your losses to the exclusion of everything else. The more you concentrate on them, the more you attract other losses. Stop thinking about them, and make up your mind that you are going to benefit from your experience. Whatever personal obstacles you face.
You must start getting to know that side of your personality that
knows NO OBSTACLE
recognizes NO DEFEAT
cultivate a friendship with other you, so no matter what you are doing, you are allied with someone who shares your goals. All the philosophy and advice about persuading others will be much more useful to you if you practice it yourself.
~ Napoleon Hill ~
Frame your thoughts like this- you are an old person, you won't let yourself be enslaved by this any longer, no longer pulled like a puppet by every impulse, and you'll stop complaining about your present fortune or dreading the future
— Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, 2.2
Do you then ponder how the supreme of human evils, the surest mark of the base and cowardly, is not death, but the fear of death? I urge you to discipline yourself against such fear, direct all your thinking, exercises, and reading this way- and you will know the only path to human freedom.
— Epictetus, Discourses, 3.26.38-39 —
