“The only time failure becomes permanent is if you decide you aren’t going to try anymore.” – Cherry Coley
Today I am thankful that failure is not permanent and that we, as humans, can choose to improve ourselves, our lives, our outlook on a daily basis. What an amazing thing to be able to change direction or correct our error when we find we’ve made a mistake.
I am thankful to have the ability to learn to plan ahead, to not let myself be cornered and to recognize that in every situation, no matter how stressful, there are always choices to be made. Being human means we can learn better ways to approach lifes challenges.
We do ourselves and the people around us a great service by taking care to look at situations as they arise, center our focus on the goal, and take the steps necessary to get there. The circumstances, events, and obstacles have little impact as long as we keep our eyes on the goal we wish to reach.
Today be thankful for the ability to set goals, remain focused, realize that failure just means we are still trying, and the determination to see things through to completion.
