Failure? Not an Option: Part 1

Happy Monday!

Nope, you’re not gonna even take on the typical Monday blues blah blah blah.  Get excited because you are alive! You are here and there is purpose for you to fulfill.

So yesterday, my husband shared a great message with us at Enlightened Church and I was like, “I so have to blog about this.”  His sermon was titled It’s Never too Late to Make a Fresh Start

Throughout this week I will share with you 5 things from his message to help you prevent failing in life. Now, I’m well aware none of us are immune to failure.  But applying these tips can help you move towards getting things accomplished and being successful.

  • Plan ahead

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying before “If you fail to plan you plan to fail.” It’s not enough to have a dream, awesome idea or goal to work towards…..that’s the easy part.  The work and success comes when you develop a plan to make it happen.

Some things to consider: What will you need? Who can help you?  What’s your timeline? How much will it cost? Do you have to free up time in your schedule? Do you have to take a class or conduct research?  Planning brings things into order.  If you take the time to plan, you are most likely able to foresee challenges and develop solutions before they arise.

  • Be Willing to Learn and Stay Humble

Like I tell the educators I train, none of us know everything. We always have room to grow, improve and learn from others. The minute you take on the attitude that no one can tell you or teach you anything is the moment you become stuck.  Be willing to learn and be humble as you become successful.  As my hubby said yesterday, there is a difference between confidence and cockiness and as the Bible teaches us….pride comes before a fall.

And there you have it for today.  Take sometime to reflect on these areas as it relates to you and your progress.  Check out part 2 of this post right here!

Natalie
