After multiple fails

We've all heard it before - failure is just a part of the journey, and we can't succeed without experiencing a few flops. But when you're in the middle of a losing streak, it can be tough to keep your head up and keep going.

I know this all too well from my own experience. I've tried to find a balance between my work and personal life many times. When I was a broke student, it wasn't possible, and when I switched careers, it became a mess again. Relationships were a struggle, and my work-life balance took a hit. I managed to get back on track, moved to Spain and saved up money to work less and enjoy more free time. But then the war started, and it messed things up all over again. So, I'm giving it another go.

So why is it so hard to keep trying after multiple fails? For one, failing is emotionally draining. It can make us feel like we're not good enough or that we don't have what it takes to succeed. We might even feel embarrassed or ashamed, especially if others know about our failures. All of these negative emotions can make it tough to stay motivated and keep pushing forward.

Another reason why failing is so challenging is that it often requires a change in mindset. When we're used to being successful at everything we do, it can be hard to accept that we might not be perfect or that we might need to work harder. We might feel like we're wasting our time or that we're not making progress, which can be frustrating.

But here's the truth: failing is a crucial part of the path to success. It's through our failures that we can learn the most - what to avoid in the future, what to do differently next time, and how to be more resilient when things don't go as planned.
