Disarm This Sneaky Enemy
You have an enemy. He wants you dead, beaten, down for the count. He is lurking around, waiting to devour you. If you think you don’t have this enemy, wake up to reality!
You WILL make mistakes, fail or lose…you’re HUMAN! Could be you blew your budget, ruined your diet, didn’t hit your sales for the month, or fell short on whatever…it happens! But, you CANNOT give up!
Have you ever made a mistake, failed miserably, fallen flat on your face or experienced a major loss? Maybe you even feel like you’re in a season of total failure. I hate to break it to you, but guess what? You’re HUMAN!!!
In other words, you will make mistakes, fail and sometimes lose, simply because of your own decisions! You may be in a period where you must suck-up one loss after another. But, the one thing you CANNOT do in this season is to give up! I see people give up so easily. Could be you blew your budget, ruined your diet, didn’t reach your sales goal for the month, or fell short on whatever… it happens!
However, when it does happen, most people go one of two ways. The first just say, “Well, I messed up. Maybe I’ll get it right next time.” The second group stops setting goals altogether, saying, “I’m already behind, what’s the point in continuing to fight? Maybe this is just the hand I’ve been dealt.”
Look, whichever mindset you currently have, it’s time to use any failures to STOP losing and start WINNING.
If you believe in the saying “practice makes perfect,” you could be hurting yourself. Practice and correction make perfect! Do you think Olympic athletes don’t consistently refine their techniques, watch videos of themselves AND their competition, all to get better? You KNOW they do! And when they mess up, make a mistake, or even fall flat on their faces, they learn from it, apply corrections, and do it again.
It’s easy to become discouraged, but as long as you stay teachable, correct your errors and refine your processes, you WILL succeed!
