#message for those who need it | failing/failure/success | #itsallpartoftheprocess |failing is very different from being a failure. |
michael jordon one of the greatest basketball players of all time failed many times. he failed to get into his university team on the first attempt. he later went on to say “i have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. i have lost almost 300 games. on 26 occasions i have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and i missed. i have failed over and over again in my life. and that is why i succeed.” during the times of failure we are learning. we are learning about ourselves, and what to do differently next time. we learn about our resilience and the surprising depth of personal resources we have within. this learning from failure takes courage. the courage to challenge ourselves to try again. there are many people for whom this challenge is too much and they cannot again face the possibility of failure. so they stop, they do not try again. i do not blame anyone for taking a different path in the face of failure.
here are some suggestions to help develop the courage to face failure:
have a dream, a courageous goal.
along the way expect, accept and embrace failure as just part of the process, you’re one step nearer to your courageous goal.
acknowledge your feelings of disappointment, etc. don’t deny them. these feelings are typical and valid and so you are normal.
reflect on what you have learned from this failure. reframe the situation and ask yourself “how has this failure helped me?”
remind yourself of your courageous goal. visualise yourself achieving it and create a mental photograph, experience the feelings of achievement and pride.
identify the one simple next step and share this with someone else.
take the step and then reflect.
winners never quit, quitters never win...💯 good morning.

A bit of #mondaymotivation for those who need it |
the road to success can be tough. it will be full of challenges and opportunities. other times it would feel like there are more challenges than opportunities. but these situations make us tougher and better.
we only find out how better we have become once we overcome a challenge. so never give up. these challenges are preparing us for the success. the quote above says, “the moment you’re ready to quit is usually the moment right before the miracle happens. don’t give up.” it’s true. the best moments usually happen after difficult challenges.
at times, we are lucky enough to experience those miracles. we would only appreciate the good times once we have seen the bad. through all the rough times, we must learn to not give up. we must always hope for the best and continue to work hard.
the only way to succeed is to be persistent and to never give up. just wait and see, you might be surprised of what will happen next.
good morning. x
have a great week. x
I always have to repost this to remind myself and others that need it because chasing your dreams is not easy, staying motivated is not easy, specially when you have all types of crazy life situations and distractions getting thrown at you on a daily basis. it's easy to get tired and weak. | when you feel like giving up remember why you started. if your "why" is big enough it should motive you to keep pushing.
