Did you know? Your past experiences, including FAILURE can prepare you for future opportunities in life? Failure is a reality, but how you react to your challenging circumstances can set the stage for your destiny in life and quite possibly an even greater future success. Do you want an example? I’m glad you asked. Have you ever heard of a man named Henry Ford? Well, he transformed the automobile industry and the way we live with his factory made car called the Model T. This car, also known as “Tin Lizzie” was the first car made affordable for the majority of Americans. Perhaps you heard of it? But did you know that before Henry succeeded with the FORD MOTOR COMPANY, he failed not one time, but TWICE! Both of Ford’s business failures resulted in bankruptcy. How hard that must have been on him! Yet, I am inspired by the fact that he did not retreat. Instead, he chose to face his fears. He realigned his mental thinking and moved forward with making his dream a reality. Henry Ford defied the odds and his success changed our world with a legacy that continues on to this day! Imagine what we would have lost if he threw in the towel and gave up? So, my purpose in writing today is to encourage you. Keep moving forward in your life and business. We all face failure at some point. But learn from it! As Henry Ford once said, “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” So Friends, don’t give up on your dreams. Continue on. Do what you were called to do!
