While we are programmed that ‘failure’ is bad … by society, community, and loved ones … it’s another one of those ‘misnomers’ that the masses dictate and follow. And keep in mind if you look carefully, the masses have always been wrong about ‘everything,’ and always will be.
“If you see a group of people walking in one direction, and 2 or 3 walking in another, go with the 2 or 3! You have your best shot at success.” – Leslie Flowers
Maslow in his ‘Hierarchy of Needs,” points out that ‘belonging’ is one of our greatest human drives, so most people will do what everyone else does, and buy-into societal programming. It feels good to belong and uncomfortable taking our own road.
If however you look at the most successful people (and I am not just talking revenue; I’m talking personal health and balance, and wealth), you will find that they see failure as a BIG GREEN LIGHT!
It’s a green light to GROW, to start again, knowing more, and absolutely knowing you CAN do it!
Often they have lost great fortunes, only to rebuild them again. For the masses – most never bother to START! Mostly because of two programmed beliefs that are simply NOT TRUE.
- I need to know HOW to get what I want. BLATANTLY NOT TRUE.
- I need to have MONEY to get what I want. BLATANTLY NOT TRUE.
We all have infinite potential. We are born with it! And then those we love and life in general feeds us a lot of mass beliefs that do not serve us in living life in balance, harmony and abundance as adults.
The next time you ‘fail,’ consider what you have learned! Through failure we muster courage to go again, learn more, become expert, and then HAVE the matching lifestyle we want!
And remember, “Learning is the miracle grow for humans!” – Leslie Flowers
