Failure is a Realistic Option

May 23, 2019

 I know you have stopped yourself from doing something out of fear of failure! Am I right? 

This fear of failing keeps you right here in this position with an inability to grow or achieve your dreams. It doesn’t matter if you are afraid to fail because you will disappoint others or yourself because in the end it’s you who loses

What if I told you that FAILING is an option. Or what if I was even more honest with you and told you that you WILL fail. It’s inevitable and if you don’t, then you are not really going after what you want. 🤯 

If the world was full of people who were afraid to fail or gave up after failing, we would not be were we are today. We would not have planes and we certainly would not have made it to the moon 🌙 

Failing just means you learned what not to do. Most of the time it’s YOU, yes YOU who stands in your own way. It’s not “Sally” who stepped on your toes or “Jim” who is being a 🐍 and going behind your back or Lucky Sam who gets everything handed to her. 

It’s your negative self talk, your self doubt, and your fear of failing that keeps you right where you are. Failing is an option and it’s a good and realistic option. Do -->Fail -->Repeat.succeed-->Fail again-->Find a new way-->Succeed <--that’s more of what really looks like. 

Tell me about a time you failed but kept on going!!!
