We must relax, stop struggling, stop trying so hard, stop manipulating people to try to get what we want. Once we have become accustomed to stop doing so much (letting go) and just being for a while (live the moment), we can live a much happier life.
If you are bad at something, you deserve your own compassion and help, not condemnation and punishment. If you accept yourself unconditionally - whether or not you do well (or do well about doing well) or get approved by others - you will tend to act in your own interests, go for pleasures, and feel good much more.
Moreover, you are a changeable individual. Even if you only failed at something during your whole life, you could change and never fail again. What is the difference between the master and the beginner? The master has failed more times. You are the master of your fate! You are the captain of your soul!
If you are afraid that you would get lost without your constant overwhelming thoughts and efforts, think about it this way: getting lost is not bad at all, since getting lost is a prerequisite for finding yourself. It is always darkest before the dawn; you can only see the light of the stars in the darkest of nights.
The only certainty is uncertainty, and the best thing for us is to accept that and be curious about our future. If we become still in a muddy river, the mud around us will settle and the water will become clearer. We can not win the war against the uncertainty by becoming certain, instead we find stability by embracing uncertainty and telling the universe "bring it on".
We're actually not even afraid of uncertainty, we are afraid of the bad outcome, and that's what we have to face. Imagine your desired event as a balloon and untie it so it goes up to the universe, so that at some point, it may come back untied. In the meantime, try to look around you and see what you appreciate now!
If you want to be happy, be. - Leo Tolstoy
