There are a lot of things that I wouldn’t have done if I had taken “statistics” into account.
The most recent one was a few months ago, when I wanted to move to another city. I was unemployed, my company was less than 2 years old (in FR, they consider a company viable if it is more than 2 y/o) and the city was known for its shortage of apartments. Clearly, statistics were not in my favour!
And on top of that, I had a very precise idea of which neighbourhood I wanted to live in, and it was this one or nothing! My friends and family thought I was crazy.😅
But deep inside, it felt right for me. And that’s all that matters. All you need is only ONE yes. All you need is meeting the right person, at the right time.
If there is one area where we give too much importance to statistics, it is women/men dynamics. Don’t get me wrong, statistics reflect reality and can be very helpful when we make our life choices. But we cannot let them feed our fears and insecurities. We shouldn’t let them limit us.
If our imagination is able to determine how we want to feel with a man, what we expect from the relationship; it means that this vision is within reach. Whether people believe that we deserve it or not, the most important thing is that we are ourselves convinced. No matter how many times we tried and failed. Each Mr Wrong is one step closer to our Mr Right.
There is a power way more powerful than statistics. This power has no limits. When we surrender to it, everything becomes possible.
But it doesn’t mean that we don’t have to do anything. It doesn’t mean that all we have to do is just wait for love to fall on us.
To surrender means to combine faith with action.
Coming back to my apartment hunting, I used all the means at my disposal to get one. I used to drive several hours, several days a week, sometimes to visit only one apartment.
I was aware of the reality of my situation. I was aware about the competition I had to face. I looked objectively to my strengths and weaknesses and I took maximum advantage of my strengths to meet the goal I had set for
