Why We Fail

I can

We fail when we say no to a challenge that scares us. We fail when we play small or wait to be picked. We fail when we let fear hold our life hostage. We fail when we hesitate to speak our truth, act in alignment with our core values or say I love you. We fail when we use our old outdated stories as an excuse for why we can’t have what we want in the present. We fail when we don’t get up when life knocks us down. You see the only failure there is failure to act. Failure to lean in, step up and make things happen. Setbacks are opportunities to learn and grow.

Take away: You were born with wings. Sometimes you have to jump off the cliff and know your wings will appear. They will.

Keep it lit!

  1. Love this! I faced my fear and went for it! I have been accepted to the Integrative Health Coach Professional Training Program at Duke School of Integrative Medicine! I start in April. Now to overcome the fear of, “can I really do this (have a thriving coaching business)? Oh…actually, I can!


    1. ROAR! Toni this is wonderful news! I am SO happy for you. Amazing what happens when we act in spite of fear.. the universe opens it’s doors for us. You will be a phenomenal coach!! Big hugs!

  2. Taking this to heart everyday! It’s amazing where I’ve been since adopting this philosophy (want to see my 1/2 marathon medal and my new work office?)
