Another Failure

I know that’s a heck of a title. I’m a big believer in the saying by Norman Vincent Peale — ‘Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.’

I have a reputation for setting some very high goals. Usually personal goals so if I fail they don’t hurt anyone else. I’ve failed in many ways in the past, hence this isn’t my 1st fail blog.

Failure is a great teacher. My latest failure was not reaching my distance goal in my latest running event. I’ve actually done the same race in the past and reached a much longer distance but this time I only got to 24 miles.

I learned or more accurate, the experience reminded me to believe in my plan, follow my plan, stay prepared so I don’t have to get prepared, stay consistent and run without the ego. Nothing new, like in life most aha moments are mostly reminders.

No one enjoys failing. I don’t make excuses for my failures but if I don’t learn from them or act on them then it is a total waste of time and that I’m not ok with. I push myself in every which way in life. Failure is simply one more way to push myself.

In life everything is about perception. My purpose of writing this blog is that failure is not a motive for depression and self-deprecation. Anything in life can become motivation, energy and a plan to create positive changes in ones life.

Love ya
