My clients tell me: “In the past I tried but nothing worked.”
Here is my question:
What if you weren’t supposed to succeed the first time?
Yesterday I toured an in-patient facility for drug rehab.
One of the staff said:
We are so happy when they come back the second or third time,
Because now they are ready.
Isn’t that interesting.
They aren’t looking for instant success.
They are look for their clients’ progress.
It is extremely rare for anyone to succeed at anything the first time.
- It takes a women 8-9 times to leave an abusive relationship
- It takes 30 attempts before people quit smoking
- Healing from sexual abuse is not linear and can take multiple attempts
- Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before he created a working light bulb
Perhaps you have tried and given up.
How many attempts are too many?
Is there such a thing?
What if you didn’t think of those attempts as failing?
What if you changed your thought?
What if you never failed?
Instead what if you asked:
- What did I learn?
- What worked well?
- What didn’t work?
- What is one small thing I can change?
What if you made that change and tried again?
What if you didn’t expect instant results?
All growth, healing and results take time.
What if you stopped basing your decisions on short-term results?
Instead what if you based your success on your progress.
In the end it is not instant results that win the day.
In the end it is continuous progress that wins.
So, I want to encourage you to keep trying.
Every step forward is a step closer to your desired result.
Get help and support along the way.
Remember you only fail when you quit.
No one ever knows how close they are to their goal.
So, don’t compare your progress to others.
