The reason most of us don’t achieve our goals and dreams, is because we are afraid to fail. Mostly we are afraid of what other people will think of us, if we fail.
But success is built on failure. We become successful because we go out there and try something. And maybe it does fail. So what! We take a lesson. Then we try something else. Maybe this time we succeed. Or maybe we fail again. If we want to be successful, and reach our goals, then we need to keep trying until we find something that works.
Life coach Brook Castillo suggests that we should be having 4 or 5 massive fails every month if we are striving to reach our goal. If we are not having that many fails, then we are not trying hard enough.
What failure does is tell us something that does not work. That is all it does. One of Thomas Edison’s famous sayings is “I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work”. After all his failures, he invented the light bulb.
And we need to remember that, just because whatever we tried to do was a failure, it does not mean that WE are a failure. We are still perfect and wonderful and worthy.
So, get out there and strive for your dream. Fall on your face. Get up and try again. Repeat, repeat, repeat, all the way to success.
