Permission to Fail

permissiontofail

I’ve been learning a lot about success and failure over the last few months.  It hasn’t been an easy journey and it has revealed a lot about myself.

One of the most important things I’ve learned is that success and failure have no bearing on MY value.

Success doesn’t add to my value.  It doesn’t make me a better person, it doesn’t make me a good person.

Failure doesn’t DE-VALUE me either.  Failing doesn’t mean I’m a bad person, it doesn’t mean I am worth less than another person.

It is okay to fail.

Let me say that again.

IT IS OKAY TO FAIL

When we realise it is okay to fail, it doesn’t seem so scary anymore.  I’m not saying it makes it easy, I’m just saying that maybe it makes it more bearable.

And when you give yourself permission to fail, you give yourself permission to get up and try again.
