Someone who cannot see their weaknesses or failures.

“Imagine someone who cannot see their shadows, weaknesses or failures. Someone who thinks they were never wrong and never made a mistake. That is 100% unreasonable. We are human. The definition of human lies in the idea that we learn through experience, and that means we trip, fail, make dumb decisions UNTIL WE LEARN BETTER and grow.

But someone who REFUSES to see and face their failures doesn’t magically become better; they just blind themselves to half of their reality. Half of their identity and existence. This isn’t inspired by arrogance. It’s inspired by pure fear.

People who cannot gather the courage to face their shadow, avoid it because they are fully aware of the secrets that lie there and are hoping that if they don’t address them, then they will never have to admit the horrific reality, guilt, pain, suffering and negativity that lies right beneath the surface of their false persona.

It is a survival mechanism to blame others and avoid facing their own faults because their faults could crush them. If you pull the victim card every time someone tries to hold you accountable how do you ever expect to grow. Don’t fear to heal. All good things happen on the other side of healing.”

There’s a wonderful freedom in being able to admit that you’re wrong or that you don’t know something so go heal yourself and start now from here!

Give yourself a break.

Give yourself a break. Stop beating yourself up! Everyone makes mistakes, has setbacks and failures. You do not come with a book on how to get it right all the time. You will fail sometimes, not because you planned to, but simply because you are human. Failure is a part of creating a great life. Stand up to it and handle it with grace. Because, you can.

Take ownership for where you are. Move forward with a spirit of optimism and positive expectation that you will get through whatever you are facing. It is possible to remain joyful, grateful and compassionate, even in the face of your worst mistake. Learn the lesson, and then resolve to grow from it. This situation is a teacher which allowed you to gain the knowledge of who you need to be, to create who you can become. You have more to give, more to learn and more to share. Your best is yet to come! You have something special.

You have GREATNESS within you!

Wishing you health, peace and empowerment.
Xxx J.W 🙏💙

2012 ~ The End of Past Failures

Introduction

2012 represents a new beginning for some people. However, past failures can cause many people to lose focus on their goals. In fact, some people give up just when success is right around the corner.  Society classifies a person as a loser by his or her financial success. According to Yankelovich Monitor, 80% of people identify success and accomplishment with being in control of life.  Napoleon Hill, the author of Think and Grow Rich, understood the crippling effects of failure. In fact, he analyzed several thousand men and women (98 percent of this group was classified as “losers”). Napoleon noted: “There are millions of people who believe themselves ‘doomed’ to poverty and failure, because of some strange force over which they believe they have no control.  They are the creators of their own ‘misfortunes,’ because of this negative belief, which is picked up by the subconscious mind, and translated into its physical equivalent.”  It is very easy for most people to point fingers at others for their failures.

FailuresDoNotDefineYouThe Path Forward

Successful people use 2012 as new opportunities for success. If individuals want to achieve something different for the year, they must understand how to manage failure and take control of their own lives. Successful people make it a habit to concentrate their energies on things that they control while victims concentrate on their lack of power.  When a person feels he is powerless, it causes him to be fearful. Doubt and worry contribute to these feelings.  Fear exists in the absence of control. Brian Tracy, author of Advanced Selling Strategies, argues: “The key to a healthy mental attitude is a sense of control, a sense that you are the primary creative force in your life.  It is a feeling that you are in control of what you do and everything that happens to you.”  Too many people focus on things beyond their control. In reality, you can control how you deal with a situation. Many so-called losers spend more time complaining about the things they can’t control. The following suggestions are offered:

  1. Develop a clear sense of purpose.
  2. Practice positive affirmations about yourself.
  3. Learn from past failures.
  4. Analyse successful people’s mistakes and learn how they cope with failure.
  5. Surround yourself with winners.

Conclusion

During these economic times, individuals must gain the tenacity to deal with the negative consequences of failure.  So who hasn’t failed? Helen Keller? Albert Einstein?  Oprah Winfrey? Steve Jobs?   Everyone has had some failures in his or her life.  Successful people rebound from failure.  The key is what you learn from your mistakes and your desire to bounce back from a bad situation.  For example, Thomas Edison, a great inventor, said about his failure, “I hadn’t failed, I’ve found 10,000 ways that don’t work.”  Individuals don’t need to become victims of own self-doubt because no one is destined for failure.  In fact, you don’t need to accept the status of “Loser” on your forehead.  By taking actions today, individuals will start on a new journey toward success.
