Failing Is Just one Step on the Way to Success

Sometimes we have to do things that take us way out of our comfort zones – whether it is related to our personal lives, fitness, work, or any other area of our lives it is necessary to push ourselves occasionally.

I feel like almost every day since August 27, 2013 I have had to push out of my comfort zone.  (That is the day we bought a business.)  I knew nothing about owning a business so my life has been all about a learning curve!

Saturday, I tried something and feel like it was pretty much an epic fail!!!  Thankfully the only thing I lost was my time (over 10 hours) and I learned a few things in the process.

I think that the idea is good – I just need to spend some time doing a little more prep work and figuring out the best way to promote the event so I’m not going to give up  – just find a new way!!!

I’m hoping that the lessons I learned during my last attempt at a 50 mile race will pay off in just under 4 weeks when I am competing in another 50!!!

Have you had an failures that learned from and turned into a great experience?

Happy Monday!!
