I love this message. I tend to let one small bad thing push my nose down and then I start to slide into the negative. I give this message to myself every time it happens…
Sometimes you need a reset. There is no shame in that.
It’s not how many times you fall, it is about making sure you get up one more time than you went down…
It is never failure as long as you learned something. It may hurt, and that is okay, as learned as you learned something so you can make more informed decisions in the future.
I owe my buddy Pete for several huge life changing events in my life. He told me to just apply even though I thought I was not good enough for a job almost twenty years ago. It put me on my current career path and I owe him a lot. Don’t hold yourself back, reach for it and you will be surprised how often you hand falls on the prize.
This is the way I always want my boys to behave. I don’t ever want them to fear telling me. I’m there to help them and guide them. That doesn’t mean I might not be disappointed in some action, but I want to be there to make sure they come out the other side having learned something.
No one is going to give you the things you want in life. The only way to get them is to go after them. Even if you don’t get everything at once, you won’t have anything if you don’t try.
Don’t let others doubts become your own…
Is it wrong that I don’t appreciate the things that came as easily as the things I’ve had to work for?
Don’t just hope and wish, make the change you want to see in the world. Give it birth and help it grow.
