As an adult, we are supposed to live up to a certain image or follow a certain blueprint and if we don’t, we are deemed or labeled as, “lazy”, “incompetent”, a dreamer. I know that I am not all of those things except lazy every Tuesday. :-p
I guess I’ll tell you want inspired me to write this.
I’ve pretty much had to reset my life. I had a daughter to I have to learn how to balance a schedule. I had to essentially to start my graphic design business all over because I was overzealous in what I was doing and neglected it. I stopped internet marketing because I got lost. I essentially lost myself in trying to do to much and had to give up. It took for me to look at my plate and realize that I had failed..and it’s ok.
As a child, my mom pretty much beat perfection into me. If it wasn’t perfect or going as planned, I was to abandon it. I finally woke up and realized that the only failure is not trying. If something did not go as planned, then it’s up to you to figure out why and re-route what you’re doing. Sometimes we aren’t supposed to be dabbling in things but I know that you can never know without trying. There are really no excuses for failure.
Pretty much, all I’m trying to say is that if you believe you are failing, re-assess what you’re doing and why it’s not working. You can only call yourself a failure if you never try.
