I want a ‘do-over”!
We could all use a mulligan in life. You know what I’m talking about? Just like in golf when you get a second chance to take that shot you muffed. We all sometimes need a”do-over” or a fresh start. The past can be a painful reminder of previous failures. We have all been burned by something!
Like a child who touches the burner on the stove, we refuse to go back. It hurts, it’s painful. It’s a real struggle, but we have to get back up on that horse and ride again!
How many times have you tried to start a business and failed? I know this group has it’s share of entrepreneurs so we probably have all the war stories under the sun. But you know what? Today is a clean slate. God still has you here for a purpose and you will find success if you keep at it.
My good friend, Steve, is the classic inventor type – always has his hands in something…looking for his next best idea! Sometimes they come daily, but other times it takes much more time: he has to keep plugging away, keep trying, and keep failing. Yes I said failing. You see, each failure brings him closer to success. Just like Thomas Edison when asked how it felt to fail 10,000 times before inventing the light bulb, he replied, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
What about you? In what area do you feel like you keep banging your head up against the wall?
Sometimes sharing your struggles with a great group like this can give you just the fresh ideas you needed to move forward and take your next shot!
