▶️ Stop looking at missteps and mistakes as “failures.” Instead, view them as opportunities to learn and grow. ▶️ If you make a wrong turn when driving, the worst thing that happens is you make a U-turn, course correct, and get back on the route to your destination. ▶️ Even Thomas Edison framed the many times he “failed” at finding a material that worked for the lightbulb in a positive manner when asked about them. He didn’t call them failures, he said he was just finding all the ways that didn’t work. He viewed this as a positive thing; each one that didn’t work was one less thing standing between him and finding the one that would work. ▶️ If you try and succeed, great! Another win under your belt. If you try and things don’t go according to plan, you can still learn. So with this in mind, it’s “win or learn, never lose.” @jillfit ▶️ What you tell yourself when things don’t go right matters. It’s an opportunity to prove to yourself that you committed for the long-haul. ▶️ Find a way to make it meaningful when things don’t go as planned. ▶️ Even negative outcomes can move you ahead on your journey and serve you in some way if you view them as part of the process, not as a deviation from it. #75Hard #WhatCanBeGainedCoaching
