Quote of The Week

1:16 AM |

Do not look where you fell but where you slipped. - Proverb

When I came across this quote I found it to be very insightful. Too often when we fail we are so focused on the failure that we don't look to see what we did to cause it. Think about it. Think about a time in your life when you failed miserably or were in a bad place. Did you dwell on your failure or did you think about what happened to get you there?

I find myself often thinking, not so much about what was bad, but what happened to get me there. I spend hours during my day replaying my steps, what I said, what I did and what I could possibly have done differently. I play out all these random scenarios. Good or bad. Not so much to dwell on the past but to learn from it so I can be an improved me the next day.

So don't focus so much on failure. Learn what not to do so you can be successful the next time.
