I think it is a very important lesson to focus on futility. People like to say that confidence is important. Which it is, but it is implied (or out right said) that being a pessimist is character flaw. It isn’t…it is just pragmatic to assume failure is in the cards.
I approach an interview for a new job like someone putting their hand in a rat trap. I know its gonna end badly, possibly with me screaming a cuss word loudly a few moments after.
I approach dating as if the other persons soul mate will be serving us, and shove their tongue down my dates throat. whisking them away to parts unknown to proceed with a long, healthy & happy relationship. Hilarious I know, but these thoughts are in my head nearly the entire time.
The thing is no one views this as an advantage. It can be as long as you accept the fact that if there can be a certain amount of futility in being hopeful, then the opposite must hold some grain of truth. There is hope within futility. There is a power.
I may assume I won’t get a job I have applied for, but it makes me research the company, evaluate my skills more in-depth, and makes me acutely aware of what I am doing during the interview. It makes me hyper aware, and I have anticipated what could go wrong in many various ways. So much so that when the worse happens I feel it wasn’t as bad as I thought. Just shrug & move forward.

Update on my standings in my work’s weight loss competition. I have gone through a lot of issues lately which have lead to a plateau, but I have a plan to try and push through to win a spot on the top 3 winners. I talk about my battle with SAD and how it has held me back with my goals.
We talk about Ghost-Hunting & Paranormal investigation with THINGS, and they give us a run down on what they do & how you can as well.
The Hoosiers Investigating New Ghosts Society (THINGS) was founded in 2009 by Jeremy York with the purpose of helping those who feel they may be having a paranormal experience by investigating their claims in a professional and confidential manner and seeking out answers for the group as well. THINGS brings many years of experience in helping others.
