It’s #FailureFriday, and because we could all use some extra help reframing our thoughts on failure, today, we’re sharing a piece from Danielle LaPorte that tells it like it is. We love how Danielle packs a powerful punch with her prose. Here’s how it starts:
“GUARANTEED, FOR SURE, NO WAY OUT, GONNA HAPPEN, ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY CERTAIN: You will fail. At some point. More than once.
You will get hurt. You’re going to get dumped, broken up with. Betrayed, even. Heart broken. Heart.BROKEN. You might get kicked out, rejected, canned. Denied entry. Not invited.
You will be criticized. You will be denied. You’ll be too late. You’ll give up too soon.
You’ll misread the fine print, sign a bad deal, and it’ll cost ya — dearly. You will miss opportunities, miss the mark, let some precious part of life pass you by. You won’t win. You will lose. You will be wounded and you’ll have scars — that show.”
So how do you turn it all around? Check out the rest of Danielle’s advice on her blog.
Remember to get out there, take a risk and embrace whatever happens next!
