Why do we fail? 

And what do we do about it?

Have you ever failed at something?  BOY have I ever!

I am actually in a season of failing a lot.  Sometimes I hate it and other times I try to embrace it.  Growing up I did not think about that road to success I was on with playing volleyball.  I just knew I was working hard and hard than most around me.  I sacrificed many things that did not benefit the end goal…to get a scholarship and go to school on volleyball.  I accomplished that goals and glad for it.  Now, I try to remember how I worked back then and how I should apply past success and failures to my adult world today.

Success, I find is not a nice smooth road with no curves and bumps.  NOPE…it’s long, hard, bumpy and sometimes the road suddenly ends.  Sometimes it’s raining so hard and I am so overwhelmed and don’t know where I am supposed to go and what I am supposed to do.

Baby steps…baby steps is all I can do to keep pushing forward.

If I fall, I already have it in my head I I will stay down.  I am trying to get back up faster and faster each time as well because the longer I stay down the farther I push my goals down the road and the more work I have to do to catch back up.

I shared more of my thoughts on this in a Facebook Live post this week I invite you to watch and I hope to see you over there.


Wishing you a Fi† Day

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11

Do you ever lie to yourself and say, “Self, you deserve to break those boundaries you set for yourself.”?

You might as well say, “Self, forget about your goals for now, sure justifying why you should go ahead and break those boundaries will push the feelings of hitting that goal back who knows how long.  But it’s ok….you have worked so hard the last 2 days.  You can always start again tomorrow.”

You are lying to yourself and justifying why it’s ok with more lies.  You do, I do….we all do it!

Here are 10 lies we tell ourselves, 10 truths to debunk those lies, 5 Scripture to arm yourself with, 7 short but effective workouts you can do anywhere, and a 5 day meal plan with a shopping list.
