Things I’ve Learned Along the Way: Stick with it despite the challenges

This brightened my day and made me smile. Why? Because it reminds me to keep on trying despite the challenges that surface in life.

Through experience, I’ve learned when trying something new it almost always feels a bit odd in the beginning, because it is. It’s when we persevere against all odds and keep working on what is most important to us, whether it may be learning to ride a motorcycle, working on a new project or whatever it is that’s burning in our hearts, that success comes into focus.

Take the plunge, make the mistakes, try again, and smile knowing that you are on your way to mastery!

Are you struggling?

Recently, I watched a video that reminded me that it’s okay to fail.  I know, we’ve heard it from so many great leaders, inventors, and teachers.   Still many of us fight failure.  We struggle with the idea that it’s something bigger than it really is.  

The message in this video is simple and powerful.  It’s a wonderful reminder that failure doesn’t define who we are. Instead, failure needs to be seen for what it really is, an indicator to change course.

If things aren’t going as planned, relax.  Remember failure is here to point us in the right direction.  Adjust your course.  Choose again.
