Thought Provoking Tuesday: What Does Your Future Look Like?

Your future and failure

In today’s TPT, Thought Provoking Tuesday, I want you to think about what you really want.

Not just in business and professionally speaking, really think about what you want in your entire life.

Some would call these your DREAMS or aspirations.  I want you to start referring to them as your GOALS instead.

Let’s take things a step further… ask yourself this question:

If I knew I couldn’t fail what would I do?

Does this question change your initial response about what you want in life?  I’m a firm believer that self-discovery and self-improvement is a catalyst for overall success.  And by inquiring about the future, you are showing a true commitment to yourself and your overall well-being.

Whenever doubt, fear or scarcity enters your mind – ask yourself “If I knew I couldn’t fail, what would I do?”  The goal is to find clarity in your answer and move forward as soon as possible.

Remember, you are capable of achieving more then you realize, and often more then you give yourself permission to believe you can.

Dream big.

Make plans.

Set goals.

Take action.

Now I want you to “ink it, not just think it.”  In the comments below tell us one thing you would do if you knew failure was not an option.

To Your Continued and Ever-Growing Success,

Dana

Thought Provoking Tuesday: Failure: A Stepping Stone to Success

Welcome back to TPT or Thought Provoking Tuesday!  Today I want to focus on something we all struggle with at one time or another and that is failure.

The fear of failure causes many to concede and wave the white flag before any effort is even made.

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT do this.  It’s a disservice to you, those you love, those you interact with and those you serve.

Instead, the next time you’re faced with a difficult decision or situation I want you to be reminded of Confucius and his wise words. If you honestly and whole heartedly give it your best and still fail, take it at face value; it was simply a lesson that will propel you in the right direction.

Do your Best

Failure doesn’t have to mean you took a step backwards, instead the lesson learned can become that solid footing you needed to step forward and really advance with your next action.

Now, for the true TPT: When was the last time you found yourself avoiding something out of your fear of failure (perhaps there is something you are avoiding right now)?  I challenge you to share it below and by doing so, you are taking the first step toward conquering that fear.  And if you’re in need of some additional support, I’m always here.

 To Your Continued and Ever-Growing Success,

Dana
