FEELOSOPHY….Failure is an option

Standard

It’s Monday  life junkies. Let’s kick the week off with some upliftmeant.

KEYS101: Never forget this truth: Failure probably won’t kill you.

We vastly exaggerate the effects of failure. We blow the prospects of failing all out of proportion. Failing is not the end of the freakin’ world. The fear of failure is far more damaging than the act of failure, itself.

Successful people are not people who never fail. They’re people who get up again and keep going. Successful people just don’t know how to quit.

Here are some famous failures?

  • George Washington lost two-thirds of all the battles he fought. But he won the Revolutionary War and later became the first U.S. president.
  • Napoleon graduated 42nd in a class of 43. Then he went out and conquered Europe!
  • In 21 years Babe Ruth hit 714 home runs, but he struck out 1,330 times. He struck out nearly twice as often as he hit a home run.
  • The famous novelist John Creasey received 753 rejection slips before he published 564 books.
  • Rowland Hussey Macy failed seven times at retailing before starting Macy’s department store.

Great people are simply ordinary people who have an extraordinary amount of determination. They just keep on going. They realize they’re never a failure until they quit.

That’s how you reduce your fear of failure. You redefine it.

You don’t fail by not reaching a specific goal. Instead, failure is not having a goal. Failure is refusing to get back up again once you fall. It’s refusing to try.

You keep going. If at first you don’t succeed, it’s no big deal. You’re never a failure until you give up.

Let’s keep getting up and starting anew! I’m on this journey right with you..

xoxo,
