Monday Mottoes – #35

fear-of-failureIt’s often been asked, “If you could do anything and know you wouldn’t fail, what would it be?” Well, that’s a great question, but the fact is, if we bite off more than we can handle, the fear is that failure will be waiting on the other side.

That’s what the question is, an attempt to restructure the issue, to not let fear of the future hold us down, or hold us back. Which brings us to today’s motto:

“There is no failure. Only feedback.” ~Unknown

Everything we’ve done until now is feedback, showing us what works and what doesn’t. It may be time to try something new if Failure Is Nothingwe’re hitting a brick wall. Listen to the feedback and be willing to be flexible. Why keep hitting your head?

Figure it out. Do the different stuff it takes to get you where you need to go. Change it up. No need to “throw the baby out with the bathwater” and dump your family or loved ones. Not that kind of change. Yet, it may require making a few drastic hairpin turns when you’re really ready to listen.

The feedback will give you direction and ideas. If what you’ve been doing has not been working, look around you and do what it takes. If not A, then B; if not B, then C. Imagine the situation turning positive and getting the outcome you desire. It’s within your grasp, but you must hear what the feedback is trying to tell you.

Today’s your day to listen… and to act.

Happy Monday, everyone!
