Failure is Inevitable

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” -Paulo Coelho

When setting goals and following dreams in our life, one always seems to immediately think of the negative outcomes or the limitations set by our current circumstances. However, I’ve come to the realization that it doesn’t matter how prepared you think you are, failure will always be inevitable. Now it is not to say that you will always fail, but rather to be reminded that in order to succeed one must know what failure is. We must take hold of every failure and learn from it. Do not let your current circumstances define your future, but rather let it push you forward towards your destiny. Learn to be grateful at every stage of your life, and never stop moving toward those goals and dreams. Remember failure is inevitable so sit back enjoy that cup of coffee and be ready to get back up and try again.

Pride, Not Prejudice

“If you want to be proud of yourself, then do things in which you can take pride.” -Karen Horney

As we go through life we tend to take on things that we never expected to face. Sure many times life throws those random things our way, but for the most part I think we deal with the consequences of our actions. So we must always remember to never lose sight of what makes you feel alive, joyful and full of purpose and accomplishment. It’s those things that will keep us on track, that will give you the ability to push through even when you have no energy left. Therefore always do those things that make you proud of yourself, stop living for others and start living for you. This is a new year for you to embark on that journey to find yourself if you haven’t, or to simply get back on that journey if you’ve wandered off. Live to fulfill the purpose for your life.

Will & Hope

“The only thing that stands between you and your dream is the will to try and the belief that it is actually possible.” – Joel Brown

As the year progresses we must not allow the possible distractions or obstacles we might face to dissipate our will to try and our hope in the possibility of seeing our dreams and goals become a reality. It would be easy to simply give up when things get tough, and to justify our decision by accepting our circumstances and failures, but we must never forget that we alone have the power to continue in spite of our circumstances and failures. We must not allow life to dictate our future, but instead we must learn from our mistakes, develop the discipline necessary to see our dreams become a reality, and we must never forget the reason and purpose of why we are pushing through.

New Year, New Mindset

“Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice: It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.” – William Jennings Bryan

As the new year unfolds, it has somehow become a yearly ritual to set goals and plan the whole year. However somewhere along the way we lose sight of those goals, or are simply defeated or distracted by the things life throws our way.

As I meditated on the quote above, it became clear how often we fall into the trends without actually thinking if what we are embarking on is something we really want or if it’s simply an expectation set by society or our loved ones. In order to truly advance in life we must always be aware of the choices we make and must be prepared to paddle through until we see those goals and dreams fulfilled. Things are not going to happen on their own, sure we might get lucky every now and then when things go as planned but if we are to be honest with ourselves, we must be ready to fail along the way, and must be willing to be persistent until the end.

Take this time to plan ahead, dream big, set realistic and measurable goals that will feed your soul and allow you to finish strong.
