I hope you’re doing well and overcoming your challenges. If not, this post is for you! Many times we’re tempted to give up after a failure, but let’s think about being a “failure” and what it really means to fail as a learning experience. Failure is always an option, failure is very real and always present in all that we do, however, being a failure is a mindset, it’s a decision you make and a habit you’ve decided to follow. You can fail, feel that it’s a part of your success, call it a learning experience and get back up and try again, or you can fail, call yourself a failure, believe all the lies in your head, and tell yourself it’s time to give up on what you believe in, that it’s time to give up on that relationship, that workout goal, that life you’re trying to create.
When you stop trying to be what you’re created to be, I feel like you’ve become a failure. When you give up on what you are in order to appease someone else, you become a failure, when fear and doubt tell you that you can’t and you agree and go along with that, then you’ve really become a failure. Don’t fail in this way. Many times my fear and doubt have tried to trick me into believing things that aren’t really there and I’m tempted to believe the lies and toxic beliefs of people around me, but I’ve developed a habit of asking fear, doubt and thoughts of being a failure to go somewhere else. There’s always an opportunity to fail, because yes, things are challenging, but failing doesn’t make you a failure, remember this…
Have I failed ? Oh Of course, I fail all the time, but those are learning experiences, and I know I’m not a failure just because I’ve had a rough life, or a rough experience. In order for me to succeed I have to keep striving for it, so reader, you have to keep striving for whatever you want. Remain who you are, remain faithful to what you are and don’t deliberate or allow people, or beliefs to steer you away from what you know in your heart is right for you.
