Daily Dementia Dose: Fall Seven Times Stand Up Eight

minute/s remaining

I haven’t been live lately because I was so busy with our current job of at home care.

Whether you are a therapist, nurse, caregiver, whether you are caring for your patients or loved ones, you will fail.

Everybody fails.

Your patient may fail you, you will fail yourself, you will fail your co-workers, everybody fails. Nobody is perfect except for God.

It doesn’t matter how many times you fail, or have fallen, or got sick, or made a mistake, what matters is how many times you get up and do it all over again.

Last week, we were launching our live online support group, we were having our live webinar.

However, we had somebody come in and made a mess out of it. He wanted to make a scene there.

I’ve then decided to just stop the webinar.

However, that will not stop us or me from bringing out the best in each other.

Here’s the thing. You will encounter failure. And you will also encounter stumbling blocks along the way.

But treat those stumbling blocks as stepping stones for your success.

What we did is I reached out to my VA and asked her about how we can make our webinar more secure.

And she showed me how to do it.

You will encounter some setbacks with your patients, loved ones, family members, with yourself, or with your work. However, they are setups for your success.

It might not be perfect but keep doing it and focus on the goal.

You may also encounter victim mentality. Don’t fall in it.

Fall for the victory mentality because you are the one who’s taking care of your loved ones, or you are the one working, you’re the one who’s bringing out the best in your loved ones.
