Failure can be something that we all want to avoid. But when we embrace it , it can get us closer to our dreams than we realized.
When it’s time for your sweet little grand baby to learn to walk, everyone is watching and anticipating, hoping to be able to witness those very first steps. No matter how long it takes babies to learn to walk, it’s a near guarantee that they will.
But before they do, they will try and fall down a hundred times. And when they finally take those first steps, those brand new baby strides look a little wobbly. They tend to walk like mummies coming from a closet.
They bump their heads. They fall some more, but each time they fall they get back up.
When you were a baby, you did the very same thing. Before you knew it, you were no longer a baby, but you were a little kid running around the playground without a thought of how many times you failed while learning to walk.
As an adult, you don’t even think about how you learned to walk, but you do it whenever and however you want to. Whenever you want to go somewhere you just put one foot in front of the other.
It’s something amazing when we really think about it.
Now after you learned to walk and run, you had enough skills to learn to dance. If you weren’t the dancing type, you just did the two step. But if you were inclined to cut a rug you learned how to dance your way down the Soul Train line, you did the Electric Slide, you mimicked James Brown, and you tried your hand at the moon walk.
No matter how many rugs you cut, miles you ran, or steps you’ve taken, the fact remains — you learned to do all of these things because you weren’t afraid to fail.
When you were a baby, you had no fear of failure. In fact, failure was how you learned just about everything. You failed forward.
When it comes to money, don’t let fear hold you back from doing something that could help you in the future.
Don’t be afraid to call your financial coach because of what you think he may think of your money situation.
Don’t be afraid to find out what your true net worth is, how much debt you actually have, and don’t be afraid to make a budget and track it.
Don’t let fear paralyze your financial success.
Don’t let fear keep you from living your dreams.
If fear is holding you back from leaving your comfort zone and making a move that you know you were destined to make…deny it, and take those first steps.
If you deny fear, it can’t have your dreams.
Sometimes we mess up, and that’s okay. Because when we were babies we learned that failing meant learning. So whatever it is that is holding you back, let go of it. Overcome by just taking the plunge.
Get with a coach so that they can help you to win. God didn’t intend for you to be afraid, in fact, He commanded you to be strong and courageous.
As they say, “You gotta crawl before you walk.” And if you are willing to fail enough, you’ll be moonwalking your way into financial success.
