Listen to today’s warm and fuzzy here!
Watch a baby learning to walk. When she first goes from crawling to walking, she’s down more than she’s up. There may be a few tears, but she quickly bounces back up, ready to try again.The urge to walk, to explore the world in a new way, keeps her going.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could maintain this same kind of spirit? A baby doesn’t think, “Gee
I fell. Now, I’ll never learn to walk.”
As adults, we sometimes let our failures discourage us. If something goes wrong one time, we think it will always go wrong. We don’t get up to take the next step.
Remember, that you will fail once in a while, but you can learn from your failures. When you try something new that you fear you’ll fail at, remind yourself that you’ve succeeded in the past by persisting.
Vince Lombardi once said, “it’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get back up.”Share on Facebook
