Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you’re being reminded that’s okay to let yourself fail.
Take that risk.
Push yourself out of your comfort zone.
Have a go even if you think you will fail.
Have a go even if you know you will fail.
You will never know what you are truly capable of if you aren’t willing to let yourself fail.
Give yourself full permission to fail, knowing that you can always try again tomorrow.
You may feel bruised, silly, or wonder what an earth you’re doing.
But remember, not only can you do hard things, but you have survived all of your difficult times so far in life.
Give yourself permission to surprise yourself.
Trying will only help you to become more resilient and better at what it is you’re trying to do.
In school we’re generally not taught to fail and as a result we really don’t know how to do it, celebrate it or bounce back from it.
Achieving and winning are celebrated, not effort or bravery, but don’t let this hold you back. It’s time for a new set of rules. New rules that allow you to fail, to learn the lessons, and then approach the task again wiser and more resilient.
So just have a go!
Of course, celebrate your wins and achievements, but also celebrate your ability to try, to fail and to try again.
There’s always tomorrow.
Pause, and take a breath. As you give yourself permission to fail.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to try something that you know you are likely to fail at.
This could be something like to draw a self-portrait if you haven’t picked up a pencil since your school years, or it might be something that you’ve been avoiding because you have the fear of failure holding you back.
It’s time for you to expand to a new level in your life.
Give yourself permission to try, and to try again tomorrow, and then again the next day…
You may just surprise yourself.
Pause, and take a breath. As you allow yourself to have a go.
“I can do hard things”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy giving yourself permission to have a go on Your SHEro’s Journey!
My first job out of college was teaching children how to climb.
Often many of the children had never climbed before, and here they were on a sea cliff being asked to climb up the cliff face on a piece of rope.
Obviously, it was a very safe place to climb, and those ropes could hold a minibus, so holding a child, or even a large adult was super easy.
But many children were terrified.
However, after a bit of encouragement, they took the risk and had a go.
And after they did, they were so proud of themselves about what they achieved.
These children often ended up loving it (hello adrenaline high lol), and were often the first in line to have another go too.
I received many letters from children who were initially scared to climb, but told me I had changed their lives, as now they weren’t afraid to try new things, especially those things they thought the would be afraid of.
All it took was for them to take a risk and take their first step off the floor.
