Learn from FAILURE Don’t Run from It.

I was thinking of what to post this week and I happened to com across a coaching assignment that went out today for my Go Hard or Go Home 30 Day Jumpstart E-Program and decided I wanted to share it with you.  Be sure to do the assignment and share you comments with me below or on facebook or twitter.

Enjoy…

Learn from FAILURE Don’t Run from It.


Click here if you would rather LISTEN to this week’s article.

As we close out our last full week of our 30 day journey together, I want to close this week with today’s lesson, which is Learn from Failure DON’T Run from It.  Many times we are so afraid to fail and so afraid to try anything new, that we never do anything.  We run from failure instead of running towards it.  We hide behind bushes when we think failure is lurking and maybe it is lurking.  But let me tell you this, you will learn so much more from your failures than you will ever learn from your successes.  It is in your failures that your greatness is created, defined and some times refined.  Don’t let the possibility of what could ‘never’ happen keep you from trying and making it happen.  You have to learn how to confidently look the prospect of failure in the eye and move forward anyway.


You see the question isn’t if you will have problems, but how you are going to deal with your problems. We will all have things that come into our lives to shake us and make us but NEVER to break us.  What the devil meant for bad in your life, God can most assuredly turn it around for your good.  Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that ALL things work together for the good of those who love God and are the called according to His purpose.”  ALL things are working together for your good.  Trust and know that God has your best interest at heart when he allows obstacles to come your way.  Everything you are experiencing is preparing you for where you are going.  Let God shake some things up in your life.  There may be some ingredients that have settled down at the bottom that are needed to spice up your life, your purpose and your destiny. Shake them up so you can experience the FULL essence of all of the flavors you possess.

Will you fail backward or will you lean in and fail forward?  Don’t run from it… run to it and learn everything you can.  Life is all about solving problems.  You have to change your perspective when pursuing greatness.  You have to look at yourself as a problem solver.  Don’t focus on the problem, focus on the solution.  If it didn’t or doesn’t work, how can you tweak it to make it better that next go-round?  Or do you just scrap it and move it on.  Remember that learning to move on is just as important as staying around to try to fix it.  It takes wisdom to make that decision. Lastly, don’t forget to keep God in the mix.  Some things aren’t meant for you to touch, but just to experience.  If this is one of those instances, give the problem to God and keep it moving.

As the quote above implies (I’m paraphrasing), if you try, you stand a chance of losing, but if you don’t, you’ve already lost.  Stop running from it and run to it.  The very thing you are running from could be the very thing that makes all the difference in how you achieve your goals.  No you won’t know until you get knee-deep in it, but you will never know unless you try. 

Below is a little inspiration.  I have listed a few very successful people and how they failed (some tremendously) before becoming who we know them as today.  

  • Henry Ford: While Ford is today known for his innovative assembly line and American-made cars, he wasn’t an instant success. In fact, his early businesses failed and left him broke five times before he founded the successful Ford Motor Company.
  • R.H. Macy: Most people are familiar with this large department store chain, but Macy didn’t always have it easy. Macy started seven failed business before finally hitting big with his store in New York City.
  • Akio Morita: You may not have heard of Morita but you’ve undoubtedly heard of his company, Sony. Sony’s first product was a rice cooker that unfortunately didn’t cook rice so much as burn it, selling less than 100 units. This first setback didn’t stop Morita and his partners as they pushed forward to create a multi-billion dollar company.
  • Bill Gates: Gates didn’t seem like a shoe-in for success after dropping out of Harvard and starting a failed first business with Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen called Traf-O-Data. While this early idea didn’t work, Gates’ later work did, creating the global empire that is Microsoft.
  • Walt Disney: Today Disney rakes in billions from merchandise, movies and theme parks around the world, but Walt Disney himself had a bit of a rough start. He was fired by a newspaper editor because, “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” After that, Disney started a number of businesses that didn’t last too long and ended with bankruptcy and failure. He kept plugging along, however, and eventually found a recipe for success that worked.
  • Albert Einstein: Most of us take Einstein’s name as synonymous with genius, but he didn’t always show such promise. Einstein did not speak until he was four and did not read until he was seven, causing his teachers and parents to think he was mentally handicapped, slow and anti-social. Eventually, he was expelled from school and was refused admittance to the Zurich Polytechnic School. It might have taken him a bit longer, but most people would agree that he caught on pretty well in the end, winning the Nobel Prize and changing the face of modern physics.
  • Thomas Edison: In his early years, teachers told Edison he was “too stupid to learn anything.” Work was no better, as he was fired from his first two jobs for not being productive enough. Even as an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. Of course, all those unsuccessful attempts finally resulted in the design that worked.
  • Oprah Winfrey: Most people know Oprah as one of the most iconic faces on TV as well as one of the richest and most successful women in the world. Oprah faced a hard road to get to that position, however, enduring a rough and often abusive childhood as well as numerous career setbacks including being fired from her job as a television reporter because she was “unfit for tv.”
  • Fred Astaire: In his first screen test, the testing director of MGM noted that Astaire, “Can’t act. Can’t sing. Slightly bald. Can dance a little.” Astaire went on to become an incredibly successful actor, singer and dancer and kept that note in his Beverly Hills home to remind him of where he came from.
  • J. K. Rowling: Rowling may be rolling in a lot of Harry Potter dough today, but before she published the series of novels she was nearly penniless, severely depressed, divorced, trying to raise a child on her own while attending school and writing a novel. Rowling went from depending on welfare to survive to being one of the richest women in the world in a span of only five years through her hard work and determination.
  • Michael Jordan: Most people wouldn’t believe that a man often lauded as the best basketball player of all time was actually cut from his high school basketball team. Luckily, Jordan didn’t let this setback stop him from playing the game and he has stated, “I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
  • Babe Ruth: You probably know Babe Ruth because of his home run record (714 during his career), but along with all those home runs came a pretty hefty amount of strikeouts as well (1,330 in all). In fact, for decades he held the record for strikeouts. When asked about this he simply said, “Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.”
  • Steven Spielberg: While today Spielberg’s name is synonymous with big budget, he was rejected from the University of Southern California School of Theater, Film and Television three times. He eventually attended school at another location, only to drop out to become a director before finishing. Thirty-five years after starting his degree, Spielberg returned to school in 2002 to finally complete his work and earn his BA.

The people I listed above aren’t any different from you or me.  The only thing that makes them different is their decision to never let no’s and rejection keep them from their dreams, goals, aspirations and purpose.  

My question is will you?

Your Daily Coaching Assignment:
Today’s Assignment is … Since failure is inevitable, if your perception of and response to failure were changed, what would you attempt to achieve?  I mean really think about.  I am sure that there are still some things you haven’t tried or won’t try because you are afraid of failing.  What if you were still afraid of failing but knew you needed to lean into it in order to achieve the success you desire?  Take some time today and think about recent setbacks you’ve experienced.  How did you respond?  Did you let it keep you down or did you get back up?  I hope you got back up 🙂  If not, then now is the time to run toward your failures, lean into them and learn from every single one of them?  Is it scary… ABSOLUTELY but it is so worth it!
I hope you enjoyed today’s lesson..

Until next time….

Choose to live in and on purpose!

Hugs…

Take the first step — TODAY!

Take the First Step TODAY

Here we are at the last and third of the three points I shared on the New Year New You 2014 Tele-Event.  Just as a recap,  the first point I shared with the women to help them live in and on purpose was to Do it Afraid.  At some point in our lives, we get to a place were we can no longer let fear get in the way of purpose and destiny.  Then I encouraged you to ‘Stop living for them and start living for YOU!’ You can not and will not be who and what God has called you to be if you continue to be what and who ‘they’ want you to be.  When you finally come to that fork in the road where you know that it’s time to walk in your uniqueness and  ‘differentness’ you need to make sure the path you take is the path designed for you by God NOT by others.

Now as we transition to the last step I gave, in order for you to do it afraid, and start living for you, you MUST take the first step TODAY!  YES… do something.

new-year-started

Most times we are waiting for the right time but that day will never come if you don’t take the first step.  I saw a sign that said ‘you can’t wait for all of the lights to turn green because they never will.’  I’m not sure who said it but it’s true.  Waiting for the perfect time to start means you will be waiting forever.  In his book, “In a pit with a lion on a snowy day,” Mark Batterson says,

‘that taking no risks is the greatest risk of all.’

He later goes on to say,

‘What sets lion chasers apart isn’t the outcome.  It’s the courage to chase God-sized dreams.  Lion chasers don’t let their fear or doubts keep them from doing what God has called them to do…. I’m absolutely convinced that our greatest regrets in life will be missed opportunities.’

You see the reason you haven’t taken the first step may not be because you are waiting for things to be perfect (or maybe it is) but that’s just the excuse that you use.  Things will never be perfect even when you get a rhythm going once you get started.  Things happen and life happens.  So expecting things to be perfect just sets you up for even more disappointment.  So let that go!  However let’s get back to what you are really covering up and deal with why you haven’t started.

Could it be that you are afraid… YES.. AFRAID…

  • afraid of failing
  • afraid of what ‘they’ might have to say about you venturing out to do something they ‘dream’ about doing but won’t attempt
  • afraid of disappointing people and yourself
  • afraid it won’t work
  • afraid it may work
  • afraid that if you quit your job and it doesn’t work, you don’t have anything to fall back on
  • afraid that the voice you hear and the tug you feel really isn’t from God

Believe me I’ve been there and once I told myself (well actually it was God) that if I didn’t try I would never know.  I took the first step. That’s right… in order to find out if it will or won’t work, you have to take the first step and you have to take it TODAY!

You will not become an expert overnight.  It takes time but it will never happen until you take the first step.  Think about it about it this way…

“The expert in anything was once a novice or a beginner.”

BBwQGTnCUAAvwFA.jpg-large

The more risks and steps you take, the easier it becomes.  Moving in spite of how you feel is called faith and faith is what drives fear right out of the way.  With each step you take, each day you build your faith and minimize your fear.  The only reason fear has so much power is because it’s what you are giving the most attention.  You’ve heard me say this (or read it it previous blog posts) what you feed grows.  If you feed fear… it will continue to paralyze and assassinate your dreams, purpose, goals and aspirations.  But when you feed faith… My GOD!  That’s when things start to happen.

Just put one foot in front of the other and take it one day, one step, one minute and one second at a time.  It’s the exact way you would eat an elephant… one bit at a time.  Maybe you’ve never heard of that before but when my coaching clients are having a hard time accomplishing BIG GOD-sized dreams and goals I ask them… how do you eat an elephant?  Either I get this strange silence on the other end of the phone or I get strange looks… because at first they aren’t sure how you would tackle something so huge. But then when I share that the answer is one bite at a time… they all say… ooooohhhhhh it makes sense now.

So here’s your assignment, think about that one goal, dream or vision (just one for now because I don’t want to overwhelm you) and ask yourself what one thing can I do today.  Then I want you to write it down and then I want you to GET YOUR BUTT MOVING!  It’s just that simple, I don’t want you to overthink it.  What one thing can you do today?  Once you’ve figured it out– DO IT!  Then share it with me below in the comments section. I want to be able to help cheer you on as you push into purpose!

Don’t wait another day. Take the first step… TODAY!

Until next time….

Choose to live in and on purpose!

Hugs…

Do it Afraid

Do It Afraid

At the beginning of the year, I had the opportunity to share as one of four guest speakers for a Tele-Event entitled “New Year New You 2014.” My topic was about how to live in and on purpose.  As I prepared for the call, I asked God what He would have me to share with the women on the call and He gave me three points, the first of which was DO IT AFRAID.  I will share the other two in the weeks to come.

I received such awesome feedback that I figured I would share with you in more detail what I shared on the call to help you jumpstart 2014 so you can start living in and on purpose.

When we talk about doing it afraid, it means feel the fear and do it anyway.  So many times we let fear be the very thing that keeps us from the greatness that is waiting for us.  I am here to tell you to STOP IT!  It is time for you to start doing it afraid.

DO NOT let fear be the only factor that determines your decisions.  Do not let fear be the deciding factor for how you pursue purpose.  Remember that What You Feed Expands.  So my question to you is what are you feeding?  Your faith? Or your fear?

If you are feeding your fear, it will continue to expand, but if you are feeding your faith, then that is what will expand.  I believe that we have to get to a place where we intentionally minimize those things that would cause our fear to grow even if that means doing it afraid.  The more you press through fear in to faith and action, the less of an impact it has on you.

There is an infographic I’ve seen numerous times that says “the phrase ‘DO NOT BE AFRAID’ is written in the bible 365 times. That’s a daily reminder from God to live everyday being fearless.”

404047_273837856049110_2005905633_n[1]

If Do Not Be Afraid is listed in the bible 365 times, then that is a hint that maybe, just maybe, you need to start focusing less on your fears and more on what God instructs you to do and that is to NOT BE AFRAID.  Now let’s be realistic here, even I get afraid.  Shoot we all get afraid.  I get nervous.  I over think things.  I even sometimes try to talk myself out of doing certain things until I hear that still small voice tell me DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT… JUST DO IT. That’s when in spite of my fears, my insecurities, my doubts or whatever else I may be feeling or thinking, I do what I’ve been instructed to do.

Is it always easy to do it afraid? NO.  Will you second guess yourself, while doing it afraid?  YES. But will it be worth it? ABSOLUTELY!  Doing what you know in your heart of hearts to do isn’t always easy.  It’s takes guts, it takes passion and it takes drive.  If you spend time feeding your faith, it makes the journey just a little bit easier.  In addition to feeding your faith, you also need to get moving.  Taking massive action minimizes the level of fear you feel as you continue to keep moving.  This is why I say you have to do it afraid.  To DO is a verb, which means you need to be in action, doing something.  

The reason your fear has been so rampant in your mind and your life is because you aren’t doing anything or the things you are doing are feeding your fears instead of your faith.  Just in case you didn’t know FAITH is also a verb and it only works when you work it.  Are you willing to work your faith?  Are you willing to put your faith into action?  Are you willing to take massive action in the direction of your dreams, goals, aspirations and purpose?

I sure hope so.

Isn’t it time you starting doing it afraid?

I say YES…

So get moving!

Help… I’m Overwhelmed!!!

Are you feeling Overwhelmed?

Are you ready to just throw in the towel?

Is life becoming a bit much lately?

overwhelmed

Over the last week or two, I’ve had conversations with a number of individuals who are feeling overwhelmed, anxious and just downright stressed to the point of no return.

Can you relate?  

Have you ever felt so overwhelmed that you just wanted to throw in the towel on your dreams, your business, your job, your marriage and maybe even life? 

You just felt like it was TOO MUCH for you to deal with.

While one individual was feeling overwhelmed about her new responsibilities as an entrepreneur in addition to working on her PhD, another was feeling overwhelmed about her responsibilities as a new wife and mother and how to adjust and balance it with a demanding work schedule.  Then there was another who was overwhelmed with EVERYTHING, her business, her marriage, and her overall life.  I imagine that those of you reading this have felt overwhelmed at some point in your life.  Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed right this minute.

Well I’ve been there and those are the days (I must admit) that I just shut down.  When I felt myself getting to that point, I would just go to bed, lay on the couch or just watch shows of nothingness on TV.  Other times, I would recharge, re-assess, and rejuvenate myself to get back on track.  Over the years, as I learned to better cope with my stress and anxiety, I learned that sometimes I just had too much going on and at other times I wasn’t prioritizing well enough.

Can you relate?

What I am going to share with you are things that I shared with my clients listed above.  It is my hope that these strategies you can immediately put to use to deal with your overwhelm as well as to help keep you from getting overwhelmed.  I’ve also used most if not all of them at some point or another.

Keep in mind that this list isn’t exhaustive… feel free to add to it in the comments section.

  1. First you must know that this is not God’s intention for you or for your life.  You are not supposed to be overwhelmed.  His word says for those who are heavy laden, He will give you rest if you come unto Him (Matt 11:28).  His word also says, that he will be give you praise for a spirit of heaviness (Isaiah 61:3).  It also says to cast your cares on Him for He cares for you (I Peter 5:7).
  2. Next take a deep breath.  Breathe through it.  Sometimes taking a few minutes to take some really deep breaths in and out help to ease your level of anxiety and give you a moment to get yourself together.
  3. Take a Mental Health day.  Take a break from everything and just tend to you and your mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health.  Rest your mind, rest your body, and rest your spirit.  If you have sick days at work that you NEVER use…. it might be TIME you put them to use.
  4. Keep going and don’t freeze.  Don’t let your overwhelm keep you in a constant state of paralysis… where you think about your particular issue so much that you do nothing about it. (been there done that)
  5. Go back to what worked the last time.  If you’ve been here before, what worked that last time?  What strategies did you use and implement the last time it worked.  Do it again!  If it’s doing a brain dump and writing everything out in your journal, screaming and having a good cry, writing a letter, praying, taking a day off to get yourself together. Whatever it is, take some time to do what has worked for you in the past. Remember, if you were able to get through it before you can get through it again.
  6. Pray & Meditate. Although this should be first, this list is in no particular order.  When you feel yourself getting full of anxiety, fear, worry, and doubt… PRAY.  Philippians 4:67 says: Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. As I stated in #1, it is NOT God’s intention for you to be stressed and overwhelmed.
  7. After you’ve prayed and had your meditation.  Read God’s word and other positive self affirming sayings or readings that affirm the awesomeness that you are.
  8. Quiet all of the noise in your head.  Try to get to a quiet place to get clear from the clutter.
  9. Take a walk.  Sometimes a walk to clear your mind will give you answers to everything you need as it relates to your anxiety, stress and overwhelm.  It helps you to put things into perspective, clear your mind and it also removes you from the environment that may be causing you to be overwhelmed.
  10. Exercise. It is said that exercise can actually calm anxiety.  By exercising you are clearing your mind and body from toxins that may be cluttering them. It also gets your body and juices running.  By exercising, you may actually get clarity on what’s causing you to be overwhelmed.
  11. As suggested in #4 as something you may have already done, do a brain dump or journal.  A brain dump is when you just empty everything you have in your head out on paper.  There’s no rhyme, reason or rhythm to how it comes out.  You just write it as it you are thinking it.  As for journaling, it’s the same although most times your thoughts are little more concise and clear.
  12. Take some things off of your plate.  Are you doing too much?  Are you saying YES to everyone and everything?  STOP IT!  You can’t be all things to all people.  Start learning to say NO.
  13. Here are a few extra bonuses:  Have your moment, have a good ole cry, or have a really good laugh. One of the individuals I spoke to had intentionally called me to get her a good cry in but I ended up making her laugh so hard that she decided that a cry wasn’t what she needed but it was a good laugh.

Before I go, here is a post I found when preparing for this week’s post:  Ten Bible verses for when you feel overwhelmed.  I hope you enjoy them.

If this post has been helpful, please be sure to share your thoughts in the comment section and on my facebook page.  Also, feel free to share what has worked for you when you are overwhelmed.

Until Next Time…

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

STOP PROCRASTINATING!

On this Tenacious Tuesday, I am encouraging you to do that one hard thing you have been avoiding.  Stop procrastinating and waiting for ‘that feeling‘ to go away.  It will only go away when you get moving.   By procrastinating you are prolonging your purpose and destiny.   The longer you take, the longer you prolong someone’e breakthrough.  You forget there are people who God has assigned to your gifts and talents who are waiting for YOU to get it together!  The longer you take to ‘get it together‘ the more time you waste.  Stop waiting for EVERYTHING to be perfect or this feeling or desire to go away.  IT won’t!  You can’t run from it!

Get over yourself and get started!

YOUR TURN… on this Tenacious Tuesday, tell me … why you keep procrastinating?  What’s holding you back from giving your ALL so you can operate in the fullness of all that God created you for?  What would it take for you to get started TODAY?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Fearless Friday – Motivational Minute 370

It’s Fearless Friday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Stop being afraid of the greatness that God has placed inside of you.  I believe that you could be part of a group of people who aren’t fearful of anyone but yourself.  You know there’s something BIG waiting to come out but you won’t walk in the fullness of who God created you to be because you don’t know where the road will lead.  Surrender to the knowledge that says all things work together for your good and that you serve a God who is able to do EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY above anything you can ever ask or think!

Be Fearless and Surrender to God and Surrender to your GREATNESS!    

The world is waiting on YOU!

 

YOUR TURN… on this Fearless Friday, tell me what about your greatness scares you?  How has fear paralyzed you from operating in your greatness?  Could it be that YOU are what’s really holding you back? What are you REALLY afraid of?

Fearless Friday – Motivational Minute 363

It’s Fearless Friday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is…

Lose so you can Win!  

I know you are probably saying WHAT?  Well I was watching American Idol yesterday and Fantasia sang a song on the show that said ‘Sometimes you have to lose so you can win again.’  Those words immediately spoke to me.  I don’t know about you but I have had a few loses in my life that have lead to BIG wins.  However when they first occurred, I wasn’t so sure.  Maybe you are going through some thing or maybe things aren’t turning out quite the way you thought.  Well I am here to tell you that sometimes you have to lose to win.  Don’t let fear of the unknown keep you locked in a box that you were never supposed to be in.

Be Fearless | Break the mold | LET GO of yesterday | EMBRACE today | So you can WIN tomorrow.

YOUR TURN… on this Fearless Friday, take a moment to let me know what you know you need to ‘lose’ in order to WIN.  What and/or who do you know in your heart of hearts you need to walk away from.

Share your thoughts below in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 361

It’s Wise Wednesday!!

Today’s Motivational Minute is…

Do you trust God enough with your life and purpose to wait on Him?  If not, you will end up waiting for Him to fix your mess in HIS time.  Use wisdom and trust that God knows what He’s doing in your life.  Maybe ….just maybe the reason things are taking so long is because you keep trying to do what only God can do in your life.

Just admit that you can’t do it and trust that God Can.

Let go and TRUST HIM!!!

YOUR TURN…  on this Wise Wednesday, tell me what you need to take your hands off of and let God handle?  What are you afraid of?  Why won’t you just let him do what you know He can do?

Share your thoughts below in the comments section.  I would love to hear from you.  There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!
