If we are to love another there is certain risk…to love is to risk not being loved in return. To wish is to risk pain. To try is to risk and eventually quit. But risk must be taken because the greatest failure in life is to risk NOTHING!
I would like to share with you an article that Jennifer Fisher wrote and shared with her group followers of Facebook.
So many of us don’t fully engage at first and one of the reasons could be that we are afraid of what will happen if we fail.
Our failures will NEVER be WHO we are. Our failures are the ‘cliff hangers’ that give power, drive, hope and encouragement to the stories of our success of WHO we are to become.
It’s an incredible feat to be able to say we’ve made it to the top of the mountain we’ve been climbing…… It’s a testament to others that they can get there too….. but did we helicopter in or is the story BIGGER than that?
When I started my journey in the network marketing industry in 2003, I didn’t have a CLUE …. BUT … I liked the concept. So I said, sign me up, I want that ticket on the Network Marketing train.
Falling on our face is sometimes painful. Sometimes it’s even embarrassing, but I’ll tell you a BIG secret…. Learning from that failure, getting back up, dusting our self off and setting out once again… that’s the only thing we can do if we really, truly want what others only dream of.
I have a friend on Facebook who shared this in one of his status messages:
Ken L Francis Did you know that failing forward is how all people succeed? There is no GLORY w/o the STORY.
Want to hear how I’m working my way to being a million dollar earner in Network Marketing? Great. It started with one failure after another… one getting back up after another….
Ken says it all….. There is no glory without the Story!
Success is not being born with a silver spoon in our mouth. Life’s greatest success moments Do come from some of our greatest failures… So treasure your cliff hangers, because in truth, those moments in time are the makings of our greatest achievements.
There is no growth without making mistakes… so go out there and get busy…. make your mistakes, learn from them and then let them go…. keep climbing !
To YOUR Success
