It’s Not Failure When…

Main Quote

If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down — Mary Pickford (1893 – 1979)

Dr. Lisa Love Coaching Tip

Mistakes are a part of life. I should know, I’ve made plenty of them. Chances are you have too. And, one of the trickiest things about making a mistake is knowing how to think and feel about it. Why? Because the quicker you can turn your attitude and feelings around to admit you made a mistake and then seek out a way to correct it, the sooner you can get up, brush yourself off, learn from the mistake and move towards a path of ultimate success. After all many of the most celebrated and successful people in history have gone through a brutal series of mistakes. Abraham Lincoln, for example, had a succession of failed businesses and failed political campaigns before becoming President of the United States. More than likely his capacity to learn from his stinging failures and to become more humble at an ego level helped him become so celebrated later on. Thomas Edison the inventor of the light bulb is known to have failed hundreds of times in his attempt to create one. Yet, he saw each failure as getting one step closer towards success because each time he understood what not to do from that point forward. Regarding your own mistakes and failures at this point consider what it is you can do to change course, gain knowledge, and mature at all levels — spiritually, personally, mentally, emotionally, and physically. In short, it’s only failure when you give up and fail to exercise the human capacity to evolve. It’s not failure when you feel pride, not shame, in your own power to evolve. So, get up. Get moving. Success is not as far away as you think!
