“Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again. This time more intelligently.” – Henry Ford
We often fall short of our goals in life, it’s even in the bible. “We will all fall short of the glory of God”. So, we know this is part of life, but why do we have such a hard time embracing our shortcomings, after all the best fuel for propelling us forward is a failure, (See Oprah, Steve Jobs, Henry Ford, Abraham Lincoln). So how do we move forward when we experience failure. My team fell short of its goal of qualifying for the softball national championship last weekend, we get another try in a couple of weeks, but how will we move on from this disappointment? It starts with a mindset. Our mind has massive influence over our body, it is truly “mind over matter.
