Failure is a scary word...the word itself has so many negative emotional connotations: anger, disappointment, anxiety, frustration. Throughout my life, I've feared failure so much that I've sabotaged my success. "I'm not good enough."
"I don't have the resources to make that happen." "I don't like x, y, and z about myself, so I'm not even going to bother trying." When I take a step back and think about all the ways I could fail - whether it's dropping my hoop during a performance or missing the mark on an important project - I realize none of them are truly fatal. I can even speculate that most of these failures often go unnoticed by the audience - real or imagined - and I've only failed because of my own perspective on myself and my work.
If we forget about how scary failure can seem, we can use it as a powerful tool. Failure is your map: showing you where you may have miscalculated your efforts, highlighting the danger zones and providing new pathways to success - whatever that means to you.
Success follows failure not perfection. It's not often our vision comes to life after a single magical attempt. Instead, that sense of accomplishment is the result of trial and error, recognizing our mistakes and recalculating the route we use to achieve our goals.
Forget perfection, that's limiting. Try your best, but know in your heart that it's okay to fail. You can fail a million times and everything will still be okay. Drop the hoop. Color outside the lines. Speak your mind even if you might say the "wrong" thing. The only true failure is never choosing to begin. 💞
