Failing Forward...

We often see failure as this complete breakdown…
A total embarrassment…
Oh My God…what will people think?
What I discovered early on is that we all fail…
The key is to fail forward…
Fail Forward?
Yes…that’s what I said…
Fail Forward…
What that means to me is when things go wrong…
Don’t wallow, don’t give up…just move forward…
You can cry a bit…but only for a minute…
The writing game is absolutely a way to fail forward…
Any of us who has written a thing…
Knows this…we will be glorifying in our success…
Then along will come something…
Lack of book sales, lack of support, withering reviews…
But instead of getting out of the game...
We buckle down…sharpen our pencils…
Write again…
Get better…better…better…
Show them, “That’s What Up…
It has been said that the best way to show them…
Is to succeed…
Well the best way to show ourselves may just be…
To fail…forward…because what we gain is an appreciation for the…
Real successes…and a preparation for the next failure….because we
Know it will propel us forward…
At your marks, get set…

Excellent, Angelia and so right. The best thing to do is always keep it moving. Learn what you need to learn from the "failure" or mishap and move on to learn and do more. Great post as usual! :-)

I had this very same conversation with a friend about two weeks ago in regard to a work situation. Absolutely on point! Keep rising!

I loved this, Angelia,

With writing "failing" comes with the job. But it's how you face it that's important. Perseverance is the key.

All the best,
Dee
