We Don’t Just Try
enneagram, type 3- the achiever
To try is to allow space for failure
So we try, and we try again, and we try differently and we never not try because not trying is failing.
We try ad nauseum, in relentless pursuit of success
We pick up more than we can handle, we carry it farther than we can go and we mourn the inability to surpass our limits.
Where the standard is one, not even two is enough three sometimes four is the minimum. We double our effort or triple it until it is evident that we did not merely try, we did. We did not want to be wanting is weakness, wanting is exposed, we were, we ARE and we are effortlessly.
We try angles, try laterals until we have found the perfect vantage where we can be viewed, understood, and revered.
We don’t waste time on that which we are relegated to trying, and failing. Mediocrity is death. We try only where we can be exalted among the best.
We try only where the path is evident, success is imminent.
What happens when the goals are different, obscure, unattainable.
When success is the best self.
What then is the goal.
To whom may we aspire.
What is thy own desire.
Is there a mediocre self? An unworthy life?
An option to just try?
Or is there no failure.
Is there only being.
