In building my coaching and Core Energetics practice I’ve failed a lot. I’ve had $0 launches where no clients sign up.
I’ve had multiple colleagues say they don’t want to collaborate on a workshop with me. And I’ve had lots of potential clients decide not to work with me.
There’s been a lot of failures and especially in the early days, a part of me wanted to quit, give up and throw in the towel. Sometimes after a hard day, it still happens.
This isn’t working, I’d think, maybe I’m not cut out for this. Maybe I should go back to my day job, maybe I should quit.
But I didn’t quit. And a lot of times I’d learn something important through failing.
Without the failures, I wouldn’t have learned what I needed to learn. Without those failures, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
Does it feel good to fail? Absolutely not!
But it doesn’t mean you should quit either.
It doesn’t mean it’s not going to work and it doesn’t mean you’re not cut out for this.
Maybe there’s something you need to learn first or maybe the universe has something even better in mind for you.
Rejection fucking hurts and it’s easy to want to crawl under the covers and never try again.
And you get to crawl under the covers and hide and cry and rest.
But after you’ve done that it’s time to keep going. If the goal is really aligned with your heart’s longing it’s worth all the falling down along the way.
Your success is inevitable, as long as you keep going.
So if it’s your dream, don’t stop.
And if you need some support with the failures, if you need someone to dust you off and help you get back up, join the Burnout to Brilliance Support Group, where we’re all about supporting each other through the difficult times. Join us :).
Take good care,
