Successful Failure

10 Feb

There are unlimited possibilities in life, endless places to go and infinite things we could accomplish. We will never run out of new things to do or destinations to reach. If we live our lives fully and embrace new options and ideas, we’ll have incredible experiences that will enrich us and give us great depth and understanding of the world around us. But taking a chance on something new requires courage and faith. If we’re afraid of failure we may not venture out of our normal routines. It’s fine to live a small, restricted life if that’s what we want, but limiting our exposure to something new will never enrich us. Routines are comfortable and easy. We mostly know what to expect and it’s easy to repeat the same behaviors and patterns over and over. We can pave the road simply by continuing to walk over it. Repetition is simple but there is no refreshment or enhancement to what we already know. We can accomplish great, amazing things if we trust ourselves to step forward toward them. Being afraid of failure and standing still will never move us forward. New roads that are foreign and untraveled can be intimidating, but we are smart and once we take the first step, can make them ours. Failure may happen, but it doesn’t mean we can’t reach the goal. When we fall down or get lost, we learn more about what works and what doesn’t. If we look at missteps as a learning process instead of the end of the road, we will overcome any obstacle. There isn’t anything strong enough to keep us from progressing and we have everything we need to unravel any complication or problem in the way. Every single dream can be ours if we’re willing to do what is necessary to obtain them. Nothing is out of reach, and we can have the lives we desire.

There is no life manual to help us prevent making a wrong turn. There’s no alert coming to warn us of dealing with certain people or choosing a particular path. Everything is open and available, and we can do anything we like. We learn by doing and we’re going to make some mistakes along the way, but each will give us good information for moving forward. By learning all we can as we move along, we will gain all the skills and tools we need to succeed.

There may be times when it seems no matter what we do we can’t move ahead. There is always another problem or complication that blocks our path. If we focus on the difficulties, we may begin to believe we’ll never succeed. We may think we don’t have whatever it takes to get to the prize. That will never be true. Trouble may come and the road might get hard, but we are stronger than anything we must face. Every single answer is already there for us and with determination and courage, we will prevail.

Today if you’ve been hesitant to start something new, afraid you will fail, be confident. You are amazing and powerful, and can accomplish anything you desire. Decide how you want to proceed, and step forward. Every single dream is possible, and you will make them yours.
