There is no easier way to say this. As much as we would like to sugar coat things to make people feel better about themselves, you all should know that when you go straight into fishing without any experience, even just a little bit, then, of course, you would suck. That is just common knowledge. You may claim to have a relative who kept teaching you tricks, despite never taking you out on a single trip, but the experience is everything. So you better not go in cocky because you are the one who probably needs the Orange Beach Fishing Guides.
Okay, first of all? You are not going to get anywhere with that bad mood. Fish could probably sense your sour attitude from a mile away with their crazy fish powers. They would not take to liking you and taking the bait when you frown at the water all the freaking time. Smile a bit, fella. Do you not know about Law of Attraction?
See, it is this theory, or study or something. To make it short, the universe listens to you and your wants. When you keep a positive attitude and believe about something, it will happen to you, you just need to have patience. Unfortunately, this goes the same for bad thoughts. Whenever you think about bad things then there is a chance they might happen too.
For example, while you are on your small boat waiting for a poor sea dweller to bite your bait. If your thoughts are nothing but A Fish Is Never Biting SO What The Heck Am I Still Doing Here This Is Just A Waste Of Time, then our universe will not give you any. It thinks that your thoughts are exactly what you wanted.
Think of it as some kind of pandering god. It gives you everything you want if you think about it hard enough, but it cannot tell which ones are worries and which ones are wishes. While is the sarcasm and which would be the sincere ones that we truly want to happen. It just senses that there is some kind of want then it makes it happen.
Simple, right? The solution to this is just to keep thinking positive and believe that what you really want is gonna appear. Easier said than done, to be honest since us humans cannot help but worry all the time. But if you expect to come back home with at least one catch, then you better start thinking about sunshine and rainbows, buddy.
Aside from the usual things to bring to this activity, you should probably bring your positive mood too. That could help you in a lot of ways. And if we are wrong and the universe does not actually listen to us and our positive thoughts, then at least you had fun, right? Being positive during this could bring you to a happier mood, you know?
Like in all other activities out there, one needs to have a happier outlook to be in a good mood. Sure, it is not actually as easy as everyone else says it is, especially if you really cannot help your thoughts from going into a much darker territory, but maybe take it one step at a time? Take tiny little baby steps.
They are tiny but they still are steps after all. Take it one day at a time too. And maybe someday, you can finally catch a fish.
