Failure is growing.
Soul growth always happens when you risk to try something new, or to experience something new.
It is true: many times, when you try a new thing, you fail at it.
You don’t grasp the golden ring.
You lose the girl or guy.
You’re a minute too late.
Nobody shows up at your event.
This is to be celebrated!
Not for the failure, which is simply success not having happened yet.
But because you tried something new, you extended yourself and expanded yourself to a new vision of yourself.
You moved yourself toward your soul’s highest possibility in this lifetime.
This is where all growth happens: in the willingness to risk, and the willingness to try, and the willingness to engage.
You might think of a cocoon: how we can choose to stay shrouded, under wraps, hiding, numbed, asleep.
Or instead, how we might emerge from our cocoon: showing up, being here, being absolutely humble to the fact that we may try and we may or may not succeed.
The trying is what matters.
The engaging is what is important.
The attention is where your soul grows.
And when you have faced failure once, twice, a thousand times in your life, something else wonderful will eventually happen: you will lose your fear.
You will lose your fear, and that is perhaps not just half the battle, but the whole battle for most of us in this lifetime.
No fear of failure.
No fear of loss.
No fear of shame.
No fear of death.
