Why You Should Always Fail Forward...
You're only getting this message because I had the resilience to get it together and push through the hard times in my business. Through out the launch of RESILIENCE, I've been able to reflect back on everything I've gone through to get to where I am today.
Honestly, there were days when I cried like a baby because I didn't feel like I was good enough, because others hurt me in the process, because sometimes I was just plain tired of doing the work.
The list could go on but one thing never changed – I never gave up. Instead, those moments built resilience in me.
I love this quote by my favorite Coach & Author, John C. Maxwell...
"If you're not failing, you're probably
not really moving forward"
I remember one time in particular when I was going through a dry spell in my business. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. I'd attracted clients before and knew how to make money with my business.
I needed something to radically change or I was going to have to get a part-time job (no thanks)!
Here's the thing, success only tastes sweet when you've experienced failure.
After talking to my coach, she was able to guide me in the direction I needed to go. She helped me refocus and get back in the game.
Soon after, I hit my first 6K month and then my first 10K month.
I can't tell you how sweet it was to finally meet some of my crazy big goals which, at times, had felt impossible. Had I not failed, had I not shed tears, had I not stayed up late into the night working my butt off – success wouldn't have felt the same.
Thanks to the guidance of my coaches and support from my biz besties, I've been able to create a resilient mindset that's kept me going even now in my business.
Today, I live with a mindset that believes anything is possible.
I wouldn't be writing this email to you from sunny Miami, where I've been staying for the last two months, if I didn't truly believe I was capable of meeting my crazy big goals.
These kinds of trips were only a dream a few years ago.
You're meant for so much more. You know what that dream tucked away inside your heart is. Don't hide it, instead start running towards it. This journey can be tiring at times but you've got what it takes to be resilient!
The best is yet to come,
