WAKE UP WORDS: JUNE 29, 2021
TAKE THE RISK. Sometimes risk requires big sacrifice and large leaps of faith. Other times it beckons us to get quiet and be still. Risk is the core of love. It’s the foundation for a life of meaning and fulfillment- but it comes with a cost. The number one reason we don’t risk? Because we are afraid of failing! But what if we flipped failure on it’s head and chose to see each and every very mistake as a badge of honor? What if instead of shame and regret, we would allow ourselves to feel proud that we tried something and then use the wisdom gained as a treasured toolset as we move forward. We can’t risk if we’re not willing to fail and we’ll never be willing to fail if we don’t love ourselves enough to know our identity is never in our failures or our successes. Today we’re challenging your beliefs about failure… not just what you say you believe… but what your life shows you believe! What’s the last major failure you experienced? What did it teach you? If you can’t remember- it’s time to risk. If you do remember, how can you use what you learned to take the next risk??
