You Can’t Lose

Here’s a different approach to life. What if you chose to believe you can’t lose? What if I told you, you absolutely cannot lose?

You might be skeptical, but look at the affirmation above and consider looking at life by that measure.

There’s no problem, for most people, in seeing the triumph in success. If you ate one of those people who just won’t give yourself credit, stop it. Your as worthy of success and happiness as anyone else walking the planet.

As for seeing success in moments of setback and failure, that’s a little tougher. We may experience pain or entertain a desire to give up and quit.

What if, instead, you saw defeats as lessons only there to make you stronger and wiser and fertilize your next slew of successes?

Take the universe’s note. Learn and apply the lesson learned from the failure and come back better next time.

This is the secret of successful and resilient people. It’s not that they never lose. It’s that they never let their losses beat them.

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you are awesome!

The Failure & Success Parable

Happy weekend, my friends! Success and failure are two words we use describe the quality of the results we achieve in our lives.

We often evaluate ourselves using these words and others do as well. We tend to evaluate our relationships, our finances, our careers, and other aspects of our lives in these stark terms, as if we get a pass or fail grade.

At their worst, these two words can paralyze us. We can become afraid of both failure and success. So, we get stuck or do just enough to keep us in a murky mediocrity that cannot be described with either word.

A few years ago, I wrote a very brief parable about a simple way to release ourselves from the twin fears of failure and success.

I recorded it this evening and posted it to my YouTube channel. I hope you’ll find it useful in moving these two words out of the road that leads to your dreams,

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember to let your kindness start with you.

Which Do You Feed – Your Dreams or Your Doubts?

There’s a wonderful story where a grandfather tells in his grandson about two wolves that live within him. One represents all our negative aspects and the other all the best within us.

The grandson ponders and thoughtfully asks, “which wolf wins?”

The grandfather smiles and replies, “The one you feed.”

Our dreams and our doubts work through very same way.

The one we feed controls us. It expands or limits our lives. It truly decides our outcome.

You see, doubt makes us give up without trying. Destroys our dreams in their cradle.

When our dreams are in control, anything is ossicle. We feel like we can leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Which will you feed?

Have the Weed’s Mentality

Much to our frustration sometimes, weeds are tough, tenacious, and succeed when other plants fail. Why? They never stop growing and neither should you.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, YOU are awesome!

What is Your Definition of Success? – Day 330 of 365 Days to a Better You

Today’s Thought:
Success is the natural outcome of me being me.

Most of us have it as a goal to be successful. Yet success means different things to different people. It’s important that you define what success means to you. Otherwise, how can you know you’re on target to achieve it?

A few years ago I asked my Twitter followers to complete the phrase success is. Maybe some of their answers will resonate with you. I’d really enjoy hearing what success means to you in the comments below.
