Busyness

By | Blog | No Comments
A common phrase I hear said so often from people is just how BUSY they are.too-busy If this sounds like you and it’s a phrase you regularly use…then what exactly are you BUSY doing? Quite often I find it is more a lack of direction than not having enough time. Everyone has the same amount of time in their day, no matter who they are, where they live or how much money they have, no one gets any more hours in a day. How is it that some people can accomplish so much and some so little? Successful people and those who accomplish a lot in a day simply use their time differently. For a start they do the following things: 1. Direction. 2. Focus. 3. A Plan. Do you possess the above qualities? If not then maybe it’s time you took a look at what you are achieving in a day….with Christmas coming onto our radar very soon it’s a good place to start making some changes and preparing yourself. I personally love Christmas and sharing the day with family and friends it’s a very special day of the year. I don’t find it stressful – I love the planning and preparing for the day and I find it very sad that so many people moan and groan about Christmas. Every year I hear it constantly said…I hate Christmas and that time of the year. Now how sad is that….why would you hate Christmas? How boring would life be if everyday was the same and there was nothing to look forward to? If you get organized and plan early then you will be able to look forward to the day with joy and that festive spirit… Start with those above 3 points – Direction…make some decisions and decide want you want for the day, what direction do you want to take? Where will you spend Christmas Day and with who? What do you see happening on the day and how does that make you feel? Focus….now you know what you want for the day focus on how you will achieve this outcome and keep your focus on that every day. A Plan…now write down your plan. Who will you buy presents for and what ideas do you have for what you will buy them? What food will you make and what ingredients do you need? Write down anything else you have to do and what is relevant to your Christmas Day. On your PLAN work out from now until Christmas what are some things that you can do each week that will make it less stressful in the lead up to Christmas and on the day. Each payday buy some presents and some food for the day. Wrap the presents up…start getting organized. As you start crossing off some things that need to be done on your plan you will be less stressed about Christmas. Being organized brings much more joy to the occasion rather than being a grumpy, frazzled, worn out wreck on Christmas Day. Some of the keys to success are preparation and being organized. Start with Christmas Day and see the difference it makes for you and make it a GOAL to continue being organized to bring so much more fulfillment, joy, fun and laughter into your life. You have enough time for what is important in your life….stop making excuses and make it happen….know what you are BUSY doing and is it achieving anything for you!!! Old ways won’t open new doors…

What’s Your Story

By | Blog | No Comments
“Your Life Is A Story, What’s Done Is Done. It Is Totally Up To You Where It Goes From Here. You Can Write Your Own Ending.”
Where do you want to be in five years? Can you envision your future…what does it look like? Is it a fun place to be? Are you financially secure? Are you HAPPY? If you can see it and know where you want to be in five years time then STOP and take a look at your today’s story and how you live your life in this moment. How is the story of your life looking so far? Are you achieving your dreams on a daily basis? Does what you do improve your financial situation? Are you grateful for what you already have right now? If you continue with this story will it get you the life you want? If NOT …what are you going to do about it? I’m sure you will be familiar with this quote from Albert Einstein:
”Insanity Is Doing The Same Thing Over And Over Again And Expecting A Different Result.”
That is such a true statement…if you want something different then YOU have to do something different. Start a new chapter in your story called - ‘Where I Will Be In Five Years’ and take the action steps to ensure you arrive at the place you want to be in five years time. If you don’t know what you want how can you get it. DECIDE – PLAN- FOCUS - TAKE ACTION – NEVER GIVE UP!!
“You Have To Believe In Yourself No Matter How Much It Is Stacked Against You.” - Serena Williams
Now take a moment to think back to five years ago. Picture your life back then. Imagine that someone asked you that same question then– Where do you want to be in five years? What would you have said then? What were the dreams and goals you had five years ago? Are you today where you wanted to be when you decided this five years ago? If not…why not? Did the time just slip by and the years go too fast? If you have made no progress or changes towards what you really want in the last five years then that is a total waste of time….a waste of your life. There are no excuses we CAN always do something. This is not a dress rehearsal – THIS IS YOUR LIFE – this is your one shot at it. Know that the next five years will go just as fast as the last five. How dreadful will it be to get there and still be living the same unfulfilled life? Give yourself a kick up the backside because it is all up to you. No more excuses, no more waiting for the right time…Just go for it… that time is right now. It is incredibly sad if you are not living the life you want. If you are not writing your story how you want it to be. It is never too late to write a new story. Your story doesn’t have to end here in this way. Take inspired action today – commit to a new story – and do whatever you have to do to get it.

Change. It can be very scary and the fears that go with change can often cause people to give up. But it is much more scary to not make a change. Regret is way more scarier. Imagine this - put a 70k sack of wheat on your back and carry it around day after day forever…think about how that would feel….really imagine what it would be like for you. This is what carrying around a change that you know you should make feels like. It weighs you down and potentially affects other areas of your life. If you make the change and it fails so what…failure isn’t fatal, but the failure to change just might be. That sack of wheat that you are carrying around can cause all kinds of stress. It might make you feel depressed and down, grumpy, irritable, sad and maybe even worthless.

It stops you focusing on the great stuff that is happening in your day you lose concentration and all your creative side is stifled.

Could be excessive shopping, over eating, substance abuse, we procrastinate and become lethargic. FIRST YOU HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR THINKING - IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR RESULTS!

Get It All Attitude

By | Blog | No Comments
“Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure.” - Dr Norman Vincent Peale
Your Attitude is that little thing that makes a big difference… it is everything – it is your power and can determine whether you will be unstoppable or not. Your attitude is contagious, so make sure yours is worth catching. An attitude of gratitude and thankfulness is a catalyst for extraordinary results. A positive attitude is very powerful and can change a seemly bad situation into a good one. A positive attitude is easier than you think; you just have to choose to have one. That’s right it is easy all it takes is you to decide and to choose to have a great attitude. Change the way you think and your whole day will change. It is looking adversity in the eye and saying just you watch me – I WILL DO THIS. Your attitude can pick you back up no matter how many times you fall. It’s like the Japanese proverb… FALL DOWN SEVEN TIMES STAND UP EIGHT! This statement is so true you must always have that attitude it is all up to you. Your attitude helps you cope more easily and effortlessly with daily life challenges. It is certainly a state of mind that is worth developing. Your attitude is so powerful it will help you to strive everyday to be more successful, to learn new things and to overcome challenges. It is very important to live a fulfilling and satisfying life and this comes down to your attitude towards life. That you have determination, courage, stickability and the attitude that you can do anything. That there is always an answer. Is your attitude a source of positive energy to those around you? A great attitude motivates others and lifts their day…if you have an attitude to change someone’s day you will be a person that gives out meaningful compliments and lots of smiles, which lifts others energy, attitude and spirit. Be someone each day that you would like to be around. There are plenty of things that happen in life that you don’t have any control over but your ATTITUDE is 100% in your control. Stop waiting for things to happen, go out and make them happen. With the wrong mental attitude nothing can help you. If you can’t change your circumstances then change your attitude to them and answers will come. With the right mental attitude nothing will stop you from getting your goals and the results that you want - you will be unstoppable - an absolute force to be reckoned with.
“ Attitude is everything. Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” - Charles R. Swindall

Giving The Gift Of Life

By | Blog | No Comments
I’m going to start by asking you a few questions…. What is most important in life to you? Is it a trip, having the latest sports car, living in a mansion, a loving family, great health, peace, being happy? What does having it all mean to you? What are you grateful for in your life? Take the time to think about these questions and get real clarity … Over the last few years since living through the trauma of the Christchurch earthquakes I have really searched deeply for what means the most….what do I want and need to be happy? Without a doubt it is firstly the people in my life…my family and friends - I love and appreciate them and I am really grateful for all I have. I also know I have to have a purpose and to keep challenging myself to be successful. To keep learning and growing so I am in a position to help others. I think it is very necessary to keep stepping up so that we can make a difference when the need arises. To have the passion, love and the caring for those going through difficult and trying circumstances. To have fulfillment in my life. The importance of this has well and truly been highlighted to me recently… Maddie https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/givethegiftoflifetomaddie I have had the privilege of an insight into the life of a courageous precious little 12-year-old girl. Maddie Collins has kidney disease and is on dialysis but to continue to live her life she needs a kidney transplant that is not available in New Zealand. Her chance at having a transplant lies in being able to get to America for the operation at the cost of approximately $350,000.00 A very big and daunting task for her family who without this money and getting the transplant would simply have to watch their daughter die. How could any parent face this thought and to live with this knowledge…it is far too cruel. Maddie suffers everyday and no child or their family should have to live this way. Maddie is such an inspiration she is determined, courageous and one very incredible little girl. When you climb into bed at night and you cuddle up all set to enjoy a great nights sleep - spare a thought for Maddie and her family. Every night Maddie is hooked up to the dialysis machine which alarms constantly throughout the night meaning that Maddie and her family don’t get that luxury of cuddling up in bed at night and sleeping…they will face the night anxiously thinking of how many times they will have to get up and how they will find Maddie and what her needs might be. It could be a dash into the hospital in the middle of the night to have tests carried out on some samples her parents might have to have taken. In Christchurch where they live there are no trained paediatrician’s for children on dialysis so Maddie’s parents are totally responsible for taking care of Maddie and her well-being. Maddie in the last eight years has spent a lot of her life in hospital and having to endure countless painful procedures. Life can change very quickly in a day for Maddie with constant infections and coping with high blood pressure the correct dosage of medications and daily testing of bloods and urine. Maddie in the last school term has only been well enough to attend school for seven days. This is not what any parent would ever want to see their child go through and to know that she is missing out on her education. First and foremost is the health and happiness of our family and Maddie and her family have had to cope with more than most. Maddie’s mother Sarah, when being tested to see if she could give a kidney to Maddie, it was discovered she had breast cancer….How can this be you might be ask? I know I do …what the ???? it breaks your heart. Take a step back and take a good look at all you have right now and be grateful and appreciate what is in your life. Show your family love and support…be kind and caring to others. We never know what other people are truly going through and your act of kindness or your smile might make such a huge difference in their life. Don’t carry on the arguments, gossip, the no talkies game, hurting others - forgive and move on. None of us know what is just around the corner. For Adam and Sarah Collins eight years ago they had a happy, healthy little four year old who one morning woke up with puffy eyes that they thought was an allergy. Little did they know how instantly their whole family lives were going to change and especially for little Maddie. I think of this amazing family everyday and challenge myself to come up with an answer to be able to help in getting this money for them so Maddie can get the kidney transplant she needs to survive. To have the life that every little girl deserves and that she can go on to realize her dreams. This is my driving force each day but I need help to reach this goal of getting $350,000 so if you all out there can get on board and help that would be fantastic. Send me your ideas and suggestions, your help in making this go viral would be awesome - your donations on give-a-little are so gratefully received. Our children are so precious so treat them that way. Forget about sweating the small stuff and stressing over dramas that at the end of the day will not matter a damn…spend the time instead with your children and create lifelong loving memories. Get on board with me and help Maddie reach her dreams …. "Give The Gift Of Life To Maddie" There is nothing more fulfilling and satisfying than helping others especially this gorgeous little girl!!

Set Yourself Up For Success

By | Blog | No Comments
“Success doesn’t come to you, You go to IT.” - Marva Collins
It is important to set yourself up for SUCCESS. Have you had enough of hoping that you will get more success in your life, watching while it seems to happen so easily for others …have you simply had enough of the hard slog living from day to day – constantly living the same old stuff over and over!! Hi…I’m Karen Scott – Creator of the ‘Unstoppable Life Program’ and I am here to help you bring ‘More Success into your life! To Show You The Quick And Easy Way To Live The Life Of Your Dreams And It Can Begin Today…. How can you get started? It’s about applied consistent action, having a great plan and being disciplined to stick to it…taking the necessary daily steps.
 

Here are a few simple tips that may help you create the right first steps for you:

  1. Set some meetings up with successful people. Talk to people with the knowledge and skills that you want. Ask them questions. Importantly listen to their answers. When you keep talking you know that stuff but when you listen to someone else you can learn something you didn’t know. Don’t go in with a set plan just yet…be open to new ideas. Remember they have already got the success that you want. Don’t try and reinvent the wheel – they know how to do it and this can save you a lot of time and money. Good discussions with successful people can help you create your success more easily and effortlessly… A very worthwhile lunch date to organise I would think…..who better to learn from than an expert on the subject. Or you could ask if you can shadow them for a day at their work to better understand what their work is like. It is a great way to first find out if this is the direction you want to take. Go to seminars and listen to great speakers you always learn something and get a take home gem…when listening to other people’s successes ….its a great place to network you pick up great ideas and tips when talking to other like minded people.
  2. Read a few books that push your thinking. Books are a great place to get ideas… but don’t view a book, as the gospel truth on your topic, there are lots of different answers, but use it to expand your thinking to create new ways….. Many great things have been sparked from reading a book…. Don’t underestimate the power of this - it opens up your mind to other ways of thinking which is important as it is your own way of thinking that holds you back or propels you forward….Your thoughts create your reality…. There is an endless supply of information out there…millions and millions of books on every topic imaginable…. If you read one book a week look how much more knowledge you will have by the end of the year. “If you can dream it, you can do it.” - Walt Disney
  3. Start an ideas notebook. Begin to research and collect ideas and interesting examples for your new business, or products. Cut out pictures to look at daily. Being able to see things visually or to feel and touch them sparks off that mental picture and you get the clarity that then motivates you. The motivation gives you the momentum to keep searching…Writing down your thoughts and creating a file for inspiration can help your ideas emerge and grow…. Or put up a wallboard and put notes on it with your ideas. Get a little quick stick pad and just jot your thoughts and ideas down and stick it up on the wall. They can easily be removed or added to as your idea takes shape….Share what you have learned with someone you trust and get their input.
  4. Watch Great YouTube Videos or Podcasts. There are many great TED Talks and thousands of other speeches you can listen to. There are speakers on almost any topic available to you. Take notes and write down important points that can help you develop your own plans. Determine how to translate your key points into action and get started. It is so easy to search on the Internet and find the help and information you need.
  5. Create the vision and impact you hope to have. Ask yourself some questions… ‘What will be happening when you are living the life you want…visualise and what do you see?’ What will the impact be for you and others? How do you feel about it? Don’t worry if you don’t know your exact goal and the specifics yet. You should know your “why” though. When you come up with a big enough ‘WHY’ to do something you can figure out “HOW’ to do it. It doesn’t matter what you want in life – if you can figure out ‘WHY’ you want it, it gives you the absolute drive, the absolute power that gets you going. What is your purpose for doing something, the reason you are doing it. You have to know… What Do You Really Want For Your Life? And Why Do You Want It? When you know these answers with certainty you can really focus on what you need to do to achieve the result you want! And also ask yourself what will it cost you over the next 6mths, 2yrs, 5yrs if you don’t take action towards getting the life you want?

  To set yourself up for more success and to learn how to implement these steps into your life all you need to do is click the link with this video or visit my website: www.karenjscott.co.nz/strategy-session/ and I will contact you and we can have a chat. Have a great day and Talk soon!

How Far Can You Go

By | Blog | No Comments
How do you know how far you can go - until you try to get to somewhere you have never been before? Too often people decide without even trying that they can’t do something just because they have never done it before. Crazy eh who would want to do that?
How Can You Possibly Know What You Can Do If You Have Never Tried.
All it takes to achieve something new is to set the goal to get there and put realistic steps in place. Learn to not listen to negative messages in your head…it is just a bad habit you have got into and the more you listen to those inner voices the more negative you become. Before you know it you will be saying to yourself there is no use even trying because I know I won’t be able to do it. Control those negative thoughts before they control you.
With this defeatist attitude of course you won’t be able to.
Learn new positive habits and train yourself to look for the outlook you want with a knowing that you can do it. Stop the woe-is-me stories that you tell yourself and others…don’t live as a victim. The more attempts you make to think positive thoughts, the more positive you become and that bringsWhatsYourEverest creative solutions to the situation. Only those who risk going too far can find out how far than can go. Always look ahead for the next journey you want to go on. We all have an Everest that we want to climb…find what it is for you. You can do remarkable things. You can be UNSTOPPABLE! You’ve got to want it more than you don’t want it. To win you have to love winning more than you hate losing. If you start fearing losing then you can be beaten because that is what you will be telling yourself. Everything you want in life you have to make a decision and every decision has a consequence. Learn to focus and visual what it is you want…see the whole journey in pictures…visualise all the steps and how will it make you feel. Sit next to a successful person – talk to them and learn what they have done….it cuts out a lot of wasted time and mistakes when you learn what not to do from them…their experience is priceless. You can do any damn thing you like if you have enough passion – enough commitment – are prepared to take risks – just go for your dream. You want to die with lots of memories not lots of unfulfilled dreams. Stand outside of yourself and take a good look at who you are and see how others would see you….If you were looking at you as another person - would you be happy with what you see, or is there anything you would want to change about this person? Attitude-Word-CloudIt is helpful to be able to see ourselves as others see us then we are more open to receive and accept compliments or take criticism as we know these are helpful when we take a constructed view of our life. There is no can’t …what you really mean is you won’t – humans can do remarkable things its all about attitude. Learn skills to create a brighter future, rather than just letting life happen to you. Create moments that will take your breath away….magical moments ….MAKE IT HAPPEN by living a limitless life and becoming an unstoppable person!

OPPORTUNITIES

By | Blog | No Comments
“To succeed, jump as quickly at opportunities as you do at conclusions.” Benjamin Franklin
A negative thinker sees a difficulty in every opportunity and a positive thinker sees an opportunity in every difficulty. Which one are you a positive or negative thinker? Opportunities are everywhere and what you see depends mainly on what you look for, the opportunity doesn’t go away someone else will just take what you missed. Everyday you wake up to new opportunities; it’s a new beginning another chance to grab the opportunity that could change your life. You regret the opportunities you miss far more than the mistakes you make. Unstoppable people grab every opportunity along the way, they snatch, seize and enjoy every moment and they know the true value of time. Never be afraid to completely fall apart as that is an opportunity to rebuild yourself exactly the way you wish you had been all along. Every experience you have is an opportunity to learn and grow. Focus on all the possibilities and you will find more opportunities. If your focus is on problems all that will come from that is more problems.
“Luck is what happens, when preparation meets opportunity.” - Seneca
You can make different choices than yesterday, or you can make the same choices again not learning anything from yesterday’s experiences. The decision is yours. Even in a crisis or adversity that has been thrown in your path an opportunity can be created. Adversities change you as a person as in the course of stepping up to overcome the crisis you learn that you can do things that you could not do before. Be ready to open your door when opportunity knocks on it. Throw the door wide open and step through and grab that opportunity in both hands and go for it. Make sure you know yourself and what are your strengths, weaknesses, beliefs and values. Don’t be afraid of failing, experiment and learn new and different ways. Believe in yourself and that you are good enough to take on any new opportunity. It is your attitude towards possibilities that allow more things to come to you. Have a positive mindset, be grateful for this abundant world we live in, have a real passion for life and what you do. Living your life in this way you can’t help but have many opportunities come your way.
“The real opportunity for success lies within the person and not in the job.” - Zig Ziglar
The average person takes as long as they are given to complete a job but the opportunist takes only as long as needed to complete the job, as they don’t want to miss out on the next opportunity. They forget about deadlines and the supposed time something should take and just get stuck in and do it. This is what makes them remarkable and unstoppable. Successful people are drawn to other successful people and therefore they are surrounded with more opportunities. Doing more is a great opportunity to learn new skills, to meet different people and build new relationships to expand your knowledge. Going that extra mile in life is always filled with opportunities. Read any successful person’s story and the road they travelled will be far different from the average Joe Blog. They always do that extra thing that others won’t and that is why they get more opportunities because they create them. Dream big and opportunities just start turning up. Be curious if you really want to grow, learn to be as curious as a child and you will see the opportunities around you. Children know how to stop and wonder and to imagine, they ask lots of question and are always curious - never lose your curiosity. As Richard Branson says, “If someone offers you an amazing opportunity but you’re not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later.” Don’t wait until you are looking back to see all the wonderful opportunities that life has given you. Opportunities are always there it is often just the self-doubt voice in your head that prevents you from seeing them. Napoleon Hill is quoted as saying, “In every adversity lies the seed of an equal or greater opportunity.” Be willing to do more, make that extra phone call, work late, start early. Instead of complaining about what needs to be done take some action. Be helpful to others with out being asked; offer to show them what you know. Be different than the majority of people. Doing more creates opportunities.
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” - Thomas Edison
Be inquisitive as there are opportunities everywhere that you might be missing out on by being stuck in your old ways and habits. You might think your life purpose is what your parents or someone else has told you,,,,but is it really? Maybe it’s time to get out of your old ways and habits and take a new look at life with fresh eyes. You’ll never know how little you know until you decide to learn more. Unstoppable people seek, search and question pushing the boundaries and challenge all they are told, never just accepting what is…that’s why they get more opportunities. See everything as an opportunity and seize the moment and you will live the most incredible, unstoppable life.
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” - Winston Churchill

How Fear Can Benefit Your Life

By | Blog | No Comments
“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” - Gandhi
If your fears stop you from doing the things that you want….ask yourself what is it costing you? How huge is the impact on your life? What is it robbing you of? When you let fears rule your life they take over controlling your decisions and the choices you make. FEAR is usually not even real so why would you let that control your life. There are things that are dangerous and you are wise to be frightened of them and to take the necessary precautions but fear is in your imagination. It is something you have made up. Learn to use your fear to benefit you before it uses you. A great acronym that describes fear is: FEAR – False Evidence Appearing Real This is a great explanation of fear as most times that is the case…it is not real only appearing so. People have all sorts of fears - fear of failure, fear of success, fear of not being good enough, fear of being rejected, fear of the unknown and the list could go on and on.
“The key to success is for you to make a habit throughout your life of doing the things you fear.” - Vincent VanGogh
The fear of change can be very scary for some causing them to just give up to not even try which weighs them down. This weight is carried around like a heavy sack of wheat and this load they carry around day after day causes all kinds of stress ….maybe keeping them feeling sad, helpless, bogged down and worthless. Not making changes can cause your self-esteem to plummet. It takes a lot of mental energy to not do something - to let your fears win. Long term it can cause physical illness. It is much easier and more beneficial to work on your fears and get rid of that weight you are dragging around on a daily basis. Make the changes to become the real YOU …live an exciting life that you love. If you want to change your results, you first have to change your thinking. As Henry Ford said…"Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” Get rid of those damn fears NOW, stop limiting yourself and live a life of passion and purpose. Focus on what you do want rather than what you don’t.…be gone FEAR be gone…I am stronger that YOU! Fear is a common current that runs through all of our lives and if you allow it fear will keep you locked up in a prison of self-doubt, procrastination - robbing you of joy and spontaneity. If you allow it to FEAR can be the biggest motivator and can serve a valuable purpose. If you fear something all that means is you don’t understand whatever it is or you don’t have enough knowledge or the skill set to do whatever you are fearful of. START TODAY…DO THIS ONE THING TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE… Set a goal around your FEAR and break it down into little daily action steps that are manageable to YOU. After a time you will start to see….as you have taken some steps to overcoming this FEAR that it is no longer so fearful and you ask yourself – why was I so afraid?
“He who has overcome his fears will truly be free.” Albert Einstein
In your mind you have a choice, you can let the fear control you robbing you of more success and happiness or you can decide to take some daily action steps and break the fear down so you can overcome it. Stop letting fear suck the life out of you stealing your dreams and goals letting you live a life of mediocrity. If you let your fears win then you settle for less and compromise on what you really want. What will be the ultimate cost to you if your life is determined by your fears? What will be the sacrifices you have to make? What will you miss out on? Get rid of your doubts and get clarity on what you really want for your life …break the fear chains that keep you imprisoned. FEAR is the NO 1 Dream Killer… NOW TAKE THE TIME TO VISULISE THIS… Imagine yourself at the end of your life, sitting in your rocking chair gazing out the window reflecting on your life. Take a look back at your life – What are your regrets? How would your life have been different if you had overcome your fears? Do you wish you had tried harder? Are you thinking…..” Oh… IF ONLY” or “ WHAT IF” Don’t have regrets….those what if’s….FEAR is an excuse you are making to not TRY… Stop letting fear control your happiness instead start using it to benefit your life. You might fail….what does it matter. Failure is inevitable at times. Any successful person will tell you that. To fail is your greatest teacher, learn from the experience, pick yourself up and set a new plan of attack with what you have learned. Failure is an important advantage as now you know more…use it to benefit you. When you hit these bumps in the road it doesn’t matter …just say “I’ll try something else – ask yourself ….what is it that I can do?” Pushing through your fears builds a more resilient and stronger you.
