Wait for It...?
Are you ready to take a leap? Most times when we ask ourselves that question, the answer is “not yet.” We come up with millions of excuses. Here are a few I’ve said to myself:
1. I just need to save a little money first
2. If I had a partner, I would totally do it
3. I don’t have the skills perfected
4. I will probably fail so why try?
5. It’s too hard right now
Does any of this sound familiar?
If so, I’ve been there. We have all been there.The simple truth is, there will never be a perfect time to go after what you want. The other simple truth? The worst thing that can happen is that you fail.
Here's a funny thing about failure. It doesn’t really exist. Something you view as failure can easily be viewed as a lesson. It’s just more information you will have in your tool belt. In essence, failure is success.
It can be challenging to view what someone might view as a failure as something other than that. There have been many times in my life when I have set out with a goal in mind only to have life smack me in the face with the inability to achieve it.
Here are some examples of my perceived failures followed by how I now view them so they feel to me as big wins.
