Too often we end up not attempting things in life.  More times than not, the reason for that is we don’t want to end up failing.  So we will either just keep putting it off for eternity or we will just find a reason that we shouldn’t try.   Even worse, sometimes we are not even consciously aware that we are making excuses for instead of taking a shot at something new.  We believe our reasons are genuine.

We have to monitor our thoughts.  Make sure we give ourselves enough credit for what we can accomplish.  Look back on your life.  There are things that you have done, that you should be proud of.  Remember that.

We have to stop believing that not doing something perfectly is failure.  If you are not failing at something in life on a repeated basis, you are really not pushing forward hard enough.  Think about it, there is always more to learn.  So how long will you wait acquiring information.

I had no idea how to put this particular website together.  I am sure you all will tell me about some bugs.  Yet I worked on it for weeks and actually had to take a membership component out because it was taking too long to figure it out.  Be we are all here.  I didn’t want to wait any longer.  The videos are not perfect.  I didn’t want to wait any longer.

Take on that task, challenge or adventure that you have been putting off.  Failure is one step closer to success.  So be action biased and smile forward.

  • We call it progress.
  • Identify the goal
  • Write it down
  • Study what it takes to move forward
  • Determine steps you will take every day
  • Notify a support partner who will help you stay on track

What you don’t want to do is find yourself next year this time saying I wish I hadn’t or I should have, etc.  It’s one of the worse feelings.  I was once the kind of would’ve and should’ve.  I could give you short cuts!
