Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 134


“Don’t worry about failures. Worry about the chances you miss if you don’t even try.” – Jack Canfield

Thanks for this one Spidey!

How many times have you stopped before doing something, worried about if you are capable or not?

How many times have you sat back, and then watched another take the chance you had, seen them rise and soar, while you are still there at the viewing point: comfortable but not stretched?

Many times, I’m guessing, if we are honest with ourselves.

When you want something, but in order to achieve it, you have to risk the road less travelled, it’s often easier to take the easy route.

But what if you tried to overcome that?

Take a chance.

Switch off your personal Sat Nav, and try to go down that obstacle-ridden route.

I have to say, I’m kinda at this stage in life now with work. I’ve been given a lot of new stuff to do.  I could have said no, but there are so many benefits to my taking these new roles, and attempting to complete them.

I have had people question whether I can do it.

I am not determined to prove them wrong to the detriment of my own well-being, but equally, I am convinced that with the right organisation, and the support of those around me, I can do this.

There will be challenges.

But there will also be opportunities that I would never have had before. And I am learning that I have a voice. And if I don’t use it, I will never be heard.

So embrace those challenges, travel all roads, not just the ones that are familiar, and stretch yourselves!

Have a great Sunday Peeps!

    We need to take the chance when it is offered to us. We never know if there will be another one! Or we need to make the conscious decision and take the responsibility that we risk it and don’t look back in regrets. Happy Sunday, sis💖

    We will never develop ourselves, if we don’t try something new, Ritu 🙂

    “if at first you fail, try, try try again”. For when ‘chance’ knocks on your door one day, you can tell her you had tried to walk arm in arm with her, for an embrace you shall receive ‘yes it wasn’t meant to be”.

    “travel all roads” – that’s what I am trying to do, but not enough money 😢

    Sometimes fear of failure freezes our chances of success. I think with me, mom was so critical that I was more afraid of it not being perfect. I am trying to do better at trying, even if that means failing at first

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
