The Opportunity in Failure

Failure’s Opportunity

Do you take failure, and make it a learning experience?

If you said yes, you’re a rare bird, and should think about coaching people! It’s a hard lesson to teach oneself- taking strife, hardship, and bad situations and turning them into positive experiences by gleaning a learning-thing from it.

It’s a lesson I’m still learning, but am so much better now than I ever was.

failureI’ve NOT completed more workout schedules than I may ever complete, but each attempt I give pushes me further, with more skills adapted, and a better chance for success on the next try. So many attempts even got my boyfriend, an active anti-fitness person, to join me! We’re about to finish a 90 day program- his first!!

Fear of Failure

I’m not sure why we take failure, especially the fear of failure, wrap it around ourselves, and use it as a shield to explain our unwillingness to take ACTION, but we do. Admitting it to ourselves should be shameless. Admitting it would only allow us to reach further to create a better self than we’ve ever been.

“It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”
― Franklin D. RooseveltLooking Forward

Let’s all try to meet failure with an open mind, using it to fuel our learning curves, and simply do better, and #bebetter, next time around…
