Why I want you to fail (forwards)
To try and fail is far more valuable than to never try at all because with every failure comes a lesson.
It may sting, it may be tricky to see but it's always there, and when appreciated, these lessons can powerfully steer future attempts so that every 'failure' in fact was a step towards success.
This is how I approach making shifts in all aspects of my life - health, business, fitness, finances, relationships.
Did that approach to exercise achieve what I want?
Did I succeed in making the healthy choice in that social situation?
Did my planning create the routine I desire?
Did I process my thoughts and emotions well enough that I effectively communicated my needs?
Whenever the answer to these sorts of questions is 'No', this is not a failure, it is merely a lesson on how to not approach it next time; guidance on what not to repeat; clues to the winning solution.
We fail. It happens. So I urge you to search for those valuable lessons so that when you fail, you always fail forwards.
Have a great week!
