Awesome Tip: Losing Now Is Preventing Delusion in the Future

Teaching your kids to get comfortable with losing is one of the best things you can do for them. Not only will it thicken their skin, but it will keep life in a much more realistic perspective and prevent them from developing some serious delusions that coddling can lead to.

  1. 1:10 I have to disagree with her on this one because Gary constantly talks about how his mom gave him confidence to where he did not care about what the kids in school said but most kids do not have this confidence so the little confidence they have can easily be taken away

  2. One commenter said if you lose, you can loose confidence. That's real.

    You can lose confidence and that shit can shred your discipline and motivation. But you can change this and it's very simple. Instead of measuring your "success" on the outcome, measure your success on whether you're giving your best.

    So it's input measurement instead of output measurement. For example: instead of making your goal "write 10 pages every day", make it "write for 20 minutes every day". This is much easier to accomplish and most of the time you'll end up writing way more than 20 minutes.

    The trick is to start with small goals which are easy for you and enjoyable, and build upwards. Small wins every day and you'll get to bad-ass soon enough.

    If you have any more questions I'm here.
