    “Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. The courage to continue is what counts.”

    ~ Winston Churchill ~

    How many of us believe the opposite of this quote? Some of us get to a point where we’ve reached the “pinnacle” of success and find ourselves stalled out where the rest of us fear failure to the point where we think it will cost us our lives. Either way, it’s in finding the courage to do that one thing, and then one more, and again another – that’s where the beauty of life really starts to happen.

    Like the lion in the Wizard of Oz, we have to come to a point in our lives when we get a little reckless, a little beyond ourselves, let loose and do what we’ve always felt that has been impossible.

    It is these times, when we’re the  MOST fearful AND courageous because, no matter what, we’re doing IT ANYHOW!

    So what’s on your agenda for the year 2013, that you’ve been really wanting to do? What do you have “planned” to start in 2014 (although you do know, deep down on the inside, that you can start it NOW

    Have the courage to move through it, but don’t you DARE NOT DO IT!!). Find a way to work through the noise, put your foot down, and declare, THIS one thing is getting done!.. And start… somewhere… anywhere. Success will lead to more success, which is why it’s not final. Failure, big & small, are teachers of what NOT to do.. make mistakes early and often. Just don’t repeat them (EASY)..

  1. I think this is so important. Keep moving even when you don’t feel like it, even when it gets tough, even when it looks like it’s impossible. Do it anyway. Great post! 🙂

    It’s so true that just getting started is what’s so important. Even if you’re not quite sure of all the steps, to get moving in that direction will begin to reveal to you what’s next.

    Great reference to the lion on the Wizard of Oz. I know I have has those moments where in the face of not having all the answers, feeling a little nervous I still had to move out on what I believe. This was a good reminder for me I’m not alone. Thanks!
