Failure

I know many of you who follow me here on my blog, or on FB, or on IG, don’t always follow me in other social media, so I wanted to share my FB thoughts in a blog post this morning.  I feel it is an important topic for us all to remember.  After I wrote it this morning, I was listening to the audiobook of “Go For NO!” by Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz, on my way to work, and it confirmed the thoughts running through my head.

I have had some massive failures over the past six years.  And I got to thinking that it is funny how most people from the outside only see my success of losing and keeping off over 100#!  But the truth of it is, that it has not been easy, and many BIG failures have been a HUGE part of the successes that followed.

So here is the FB post from my Body By Brenda page.~

GGGGGOOOOOODDDDD MMOORRRRNNNIINNNGGGG!!!!!

As most of you know, I have been fighting some of my old demons for quite some time. Binge eating and a bit of self-loathing But on the plus side, I HAVE been fighting them! I have been taking proactive steps to find out the core reasons WHY I am letting these demons sneak back into my life.

THAT is itself is progress!

In the past I would have just let the demons take over without a fight. But I CHOOSE to fight for my success. I CHOOSE each day to make the effort to MAKE my life better!

I fell asleep thinking about this, and woke this morning with these thoughts running through my head. And I know where it comes from. It is directly from all of the positive Personal Development I have been introduced to as a Beachbody Coach. Another day to work towards my DREAM of being both a healthy role model and financially free!

Here is what I jotted down as soon as I got out of bed today.

I Failed Today
by Brenda Turnbaugh

I Failed Today
I am not sure why
Sometimes I wonder
Why do I try?

I Failed Today
I tried to grow
But at times I think…
Will I ever Go Pro?

I Failed Today
The fat I must keep trimming
Time to think like Dory
Just Keep Swimming!

I Failed Today
Yeah It seems quite the mess
But that is what happens when
You fail your way to Success!!!!

Fail, Learn, Succeed!
See You At The Top!!!

*****************************************************************************************************************

I hope it helps you remember that EVERY day is not a success.  In fact, MANY days are not successes.  Especially in the beginning of a journey.  Cut yourself some slack.  Realize that failure is just part of the journey to massive success, and embrace it!  You know what they say…..

road to success

 

MAKE today GREAT!!!!
