Failure is defined by the perspective you have about it. You can define it or let it define you. Failure is not a reason to quit on your dreams or give up on your journey. When you are failing at something that is progress, if you aren’t failing you are doing something wrong.
The thing about failure is it happens to allow us to change something so we can propel. It is important to understand that working and failing makes you appreciate your journey even more once you’ve made it.
When you find yourself alone, and hopeless, write down the things you have accomplished so far and the steps to get closer to your goal. When you write things down you remember them more and executing them no matter how extreme, it will be dexterous.
Struggling on your journey allows you to come up with different ways to get to your dream. Are you lacking the resources? That struggle is showing you to hustle harder and learn to use what you have. Don’t know how to do that skill? That struggle is showing you that you need to seek out the information necessary to learn those skills. Don’t have the connections? That struggle is showing you to network and meet the people that can get you there. Don’t know how to start? The frustration is showing you that you need mentorship and help. It is okay to ask for help and the worst thing they can say is not. Keep failing? Time to change the blueprint, not the dream.
Everyone’s journey is different and the only thing we all have in common regarding our journeys is the struggle it took to achieve our goals. The life-changing moment happens when you trust your struggle and discover what it is trying to teach you.
The subliminal message can come from people also. That friend that constantly crushes your dreams is the motivation that you need to put in overtime. That unsupportive spouse complaining about you wasting your time is showing you the importance of having a positive team with you on your journey… SN: Leave them. If your family is supporting you take advantage of that, the power of the tongue can get you connected to places that can take you to the next level.
I have learned over the years that people are connected differently, through school, jobs, and family ties. You never know what someone knows if you don’t share information or express a need for help.
