I have Failed at Everything!
The truth is that everyone is scared of failure. We all want to live in a world where all things work out, there is no personal pain and we get what we want when we want. Well, you already know what I am going to say....that does world does not exist.
In all reality, failing is a super power. It simply means, you tried something and it didn't work out. That is, that is all it means. It does not mean you are not good, or not smart or did try hard enough.
And your super power comes with a lot of other benefits as well. Once you have failed and are alive to try another day, you get to take what you learned from that failure and apply that learning to the next time you try something new.
How many times have you had to get up is what I am asking you now? Yes, I am asking you, how many times have you stood up after being knocked down? Is it 2 times, 20 times, 100 times? How many times after not getting the job, going through a hard break up, being broke, going through depression, how many times have you gotten up after going through some set back?
Well, since you are reading this, I am going to assume correctly, that you have had to pick yourself up a lot and you got up, you cried, you screamed, you dusted your self off and you kept going.
In all honesty, I have failed at everything.
I have tried to open businesses and failed, been in a loving relationship and failed, tried parenting and failed, tried opening another business and failed, tried the next relationship and eventually failed, tried handling my manic depression on my own and failed and yet, every time I was knocked down I knew I was going to get back up and going to keep moving forward because I had life goals and somewhere deep inside me I believed in me. As I always say, when the chips are down, my money is on ME!
Thats right, the one thing that always shines through in the worst of times is my fight of flight mechanism and what I am telling you is cry if you want to, throw something across the room, be disappointed but do not stay in that place. Throw your self a pity and then get up, get moving and believe in you. You have come so far, if I believe you are going to make it why don't you believe it.
Remember, you are loved.....now get up and move forward and create the life of your dreams.
