With Grace & Humility
I am a confident being, however; I still struggle with failure, especially those embarrassing moments of failure! I do not know if I have the grace and humility to be willing to make a fool of myself to become great at times. I have had plenty of practice – ha!
- How do you embrace failures, especially the embarassing ones?
- How do you find the courage to overcome and move on?
- How do you care, especially about yourself in those failures?
Is it confidence that keeps you going in those moments! It is a lesson in humility and being humble. How seriously do you take the situation as well as yourself in the situation!
When I do an embarassing fail I try to take a comedic approach to it all and laugh at myself! That is where the humility comes into play. However, I still take a punch to my confident self! It can be a humbling experience at times.
It is courage that powers you through! It is a lesson in how you handle the situation. Do you have control or not? Do you have something to prove or not? Do you embrace it, accept it and keep moving forward? So far it is a survivable event and tomorrow is a new day to start again!
I know when I have failed I try to learn from the experience and try really hard to never repeat it again! I know I have gained new skills. I know I have strengthened my weaknesses. I know I have gained a valuable life lesson and experience!
It is strength and resilience that helps you handle everything life throws at you! To cope and to forgive. To grow and discover your strong. It makes you into the person you are today, especially the belief and trust you have in yourself.
It is mind over matter! Listening to your mind and overthinking things. Making assumptions and thinking people are judging you. Taking it personally. The mind can play tricks on you!
Instead listen to your heart and come from a place of love to help you through those tough situations! In learning to help yourself you can help others. Being patient and embracing life lessons. Learning to forgive yourself by valuing, believing and trusting in yourself.
Ask Yourself . . .
- Are you on the path you need to be on?
- Do you need to make a decision to change direction?
- Do you need to make a choice or choices for the better in doing what works best for you?
Remember you are in charge and need to be the Captain! Do what matters to you. Do more of what you love to do. Do for YOU!
