Two of my grandbabies recently learned to walk.

Watching them brought to mind how we can learn and take example from the little darlings.

I noticed the following:

Kept trying.
Got frustrated.
Had the tantrum.
Got hurt.
Had the cry that said I'm sick of hurting myself when I fall over.
Gave up for the moment.
Had a rest and recovered.
Kept going.

Why don't we have the same will? That same inherent drive.

A lot of us give up at this point, whether through life experience or a change of direction. After all, in some circumstances you might need to find another way to go about things.

If you want a positive result:
Identify it,
Prioritise it
Work out how to achieve it eg I need to balance right so I don't fall over.
Practice walking by the wall so I can lean on something while trying to remember not to curl my feet in strange ways so I can stay upright.
Rinse and repeat.

As with practice, after a while it becomes automatic and you can do it without really thinking on it.

Sometimes simplification is the best thing. We can all learn from each other.
