I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – maybe in different words: Failure can teach you more than success, IF you’re willing to learn. Missteps, mistakes, slips, stumbles, fumbles, relapse, or falling off the wagon… call it what you wish. The failure isn’t you’re undoing and it doesn’t need to be the end. In fact, the moment you choose to learn from a failure, you’re wiser than you’ve ever been.
I’m not as afraid of anyone’s momentary failure as I am of the LIE they tell themselves after they fall. “I knew I couldn’t do this.” Lie, lie, LIE! Please don’t let your failure pass without learning the lesson it wants to teach you. Don’t let failure stop you – let it teach you. You deserve to be free.
