"Telling ourselves the story of “always + undesired outcome” wreaks havoc, not just on our ability to succeed, but on our lives. We begin to see failure and pain as a matter of fate. We stop believing a successful outcome is possible. That disbelief in possibility leads to inaction, which in turn seals the inevitability of our past becoming our future." So says Jonathan Fields and he's absolutely right. Have caught myself doing exactly that on more than one occasion and I bet you have too.
