Failure

I have been thinking about failure a lot lately.  Mainly because I have been trying to lose weight and I’ve hit a snag…a 3-week long snag.  I had lost 9 pounds and gained 4 back.  This is where I’d usually give up.  But I’ve been thinking about my ups and downs, my failures and successes and I can honestly say that if it weren’t for my failures, I wouldn’t learn what works and doesn’t work for me.  If we have the right outlook on it, failure can actually aid us in our journey towards success.  We learn a lot about ourselves through failure.  The enemy of our soul wants failure to cripple and defeat us.  We beat ourselves up over failures instead of evaluating why we failed so we can take a different path.  Anything you strive to better yourself in is going to have its ups and downs.  Next time you feel like you’ve failed, take a deep breath, sit back and take a good look at where you went wrong.  Don’t beat yourself up!  Learn from your failure and let it motivate you!  (As always, I’m talking to myself here…)
