5 Min Life Coach: Do you believe that the best is yet to come?
December 20, 2014
|Blessings for a joyful and blessed Christmas.
Less than a week left, are you ready? I'm not quite ready...but I'm peaceful because I know that it's okay to let things be good enough, and give preference to spending time with people when they need it. Christmas is a difficult time for so many people, particularly those who have lost loved ones.
If you're feeling a bit overwhelmed...stop and think about what REALLY NEEDS to be done, decide what the NEXT step is, and decide to take just ONE small step at a time. What's the first thing you need to do? Do it.
Use what you have, explore ways of getting what you need, and start off by doing what you CAN do.
Because this is the season when so many people set themselves up to fail by making New Year Resolutions that they're unlikely to keep. I've deeply discounted one of my coaching programs.
Sadly New Year's Resolutions don't last long. 90% of all people who set goals at this time of year fail within days. If you'd like help to make sure you succeed in 2015, I'd like to offer you my 16 week coaching program A Renewed You at a VERY SPECIAL price.
This is an ideal opportunity equip yourself to make LASTING changes without breaking the bank.
Leave indecision behind and go into 2015 with increased confidence, courage and renewed purpose. You'll find the details of my 70% off Christmas offer here.
Today's Coaching Moment talks about how to recover from failure and setbacks and make them work FOR you. You'll find it below.
Be blessed ♥

Today's Coaching Moment - Making Failure Work For You
I know that it can be hard to get back up again when things don’t work out; especially when things have gone spectacularly wrong, or you've fallen flat on your face. It's all too easy to give in to feelings of self-pity, or let doubts, or even pride get in the way.
When you suffer setbacks, as hard as it may be, I encourage you to fix your eyes on Jesus, ask Him to help you see things from His perspective, get back up again, dust yourself down, and with God's help, find a way forward.
"Patient endurance is what you need now, so you will continue to do God's will...So take a firm grip with your tired hands and stand firm on your shaky legs. Mark out a straight path for your feet..."
It IS possible to turn failure into success by looking on failures as stepping stones. Ask the Lord to help you see the lesson in the failure and try again, armed with what you've learned from the experience.
The only way of never failing is never to try. If you don't allow yourself to fail along the journey, you won't have many successes either. I urge you to change your attitude to failure. Learn to look on failure as just another rung on the ladder to success. Don't stop at the first locked door, find another way.
You always have a choice. You can stay and wallow in the mud or you can face what’s happened, learn from it, and move on.
Thomas Edison said, "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. .."I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward."
Ask the Lord to help you take thoughts captive, renew your mind with His words; adjust your thinking, teach yourself to view failure in a positive way.
Harness your thoughts and allow yourself to begin to view failure as feedback.
"Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently." Henry Ford
If you are weary, frustrated, tired or worn out, take a look at Psalm 23 and Psalm 91. Remind yourself of where you're headed. Get back up again. Dust yourself off, learn from your failures, do something differently and try again.
You always pass failure on your way to success. When faced with adversity, push through. When you fall, get back up again. You can have a fresh start any time you choose.
Be reassured that the best is yet to come...
"Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever.
