Champion Challenge “If at first we don’t succeed try, try again”

Hey Friends! May this post find you with Peace upon you, around you and especially within you. Here it is another chilly December day. I started the day with giving Thanks and giving Elvis his morning dose of love and breakfast.

Made my coffee ate some yogurt and said buongiorno to everyone as they woke up.Yesterday was the last day of the juice cleanse and I can not tell you how excited I am to eat and actually chew my food instead of drinking it.

So proud of us that we made it the full seven days! I have been dreaming about what I’am going to eat the first few days. I know we have to take it slow but I can’t wait!

Today I started with some stretches then jumped on the stationary bike and rode for 15 minutes. I did my Pilates made it 45 seconds into my 1 minute plank and did my meditation.

Even though the week is over for the Jordan Peterson’s daily routine I have decided to keep a few things in my daily schedule.

Taking breaks every few hours from our work load is refreshing and does lead to better productivity. So I’ll be keeping that and getting dressed for the day as well.

Also I agree with waking up at the same time and going to bed around the same time for the most part. There are times when we get creative and maybe we pull an all nighter and I think that is ok too.

As long as we are still taking care of ourselves every once in awhile is ok. After my work out stuff I got dressed for the day and prepared myself for two hours of Italian class.

Elvis came to join me during my studying and he wasn’t content unless he was right on top of me. He is 90 years old and he doesn’t really do that very often so I did my best to let him chill for awhile.

Afterwards I went into work and blog related tasks. Made my phone calls, answered emails, updated things, posted, and did research to prepare for upcoming posts.

Then it was Glorious lunchtime! We had some amazing pasta that I could not finish I wanted to but my stomach was not ready for an entire plate of pasta so early in the game.

After lunch I read my 20 pages in the book I’am reading called Purgatorio The Divine Comedy of Dente Alighieri. Things are going down in my book and not only am I interested but I am now invested.

After reading I started again on work and blog related tasks which lead me to today’s food for thought. When did we become so scared of failure?

Woopsy! How in the world did that get in here? Hold on let me fix it. This subliminal messaging in the world today is getting out of control.

All jokes aside we all make mistakes and it is rather crazy how we were taught that mistakes were something to be ashamed of.

At what point in our lives did we understand that failing was a bad thing instead of what it actually is which is a learning experience? When did we begin to feel as if we had to be perfect at everything from the start?

There are so many very successful people who have failed before during and after their success in one way or another. Stephen King, Albert Einstein, Dr. Seuss, Thomas Edison, Walt Disney, J.K. Rowling and the list goes on.

It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.”

-J.K. Rowling

Our greatest glory is not in never failing but in rising every time we fall. “

-Confucius

Think of the possibilities if we simply changed the way we think of failure. For a second just imagine how freeing that would feel.

Gone would be the days we would stop ourselves from trying something new because we would no longer be afraid of failure. No one would point fingers at each other and laugh or talk smack.

We would all learn from it and allow ourselves to view each failure as a learning experience that only helps us to reach our true potential.

This week in our Champion Challenge let’s try to change the way we view failure. Let’s just see what happens.

Next time we make a mistake and we start to beat ourselves up because we failed, let’s stop and remind ourselves that it was a learning lesson.

Or the next time someone laughs at you for making a mistake or failing. Just laugh with them because really the jokes on them. By making that mistake we just leveled up because now we are that much closer to our success.

With each failure we learn what not to do and discover better ways to do it. This helps ad to our know better do better and being our best selves each day mantra’s.

Let me know when you first remember feeling that making mistakes or failing was a negative thing and how you view it now.

Thank you for joining us in today’s Champion Challenge! Please feel free to like comment and subscribe and until next time my friends, Much Love!

  2. For myself fear of failure was taught to me from my parents. Failure was not an option for us kids. The stress in our house was astronomical and suffocating. I would love to try to change the way I look at failure. Thank you so very much and God bless you AKA 😊
