Celebrating failure….

I have been doing some weight lifting and it is a different approach than I am used to…

In these lifting sets I am trying to get to failure…

I realize that each time I begin, I enter into a battle between my mind and body…

I want to finish strong…

I have learned to mark success in some fashion, when I can complete the task before me…

And so even though I can understand the purpose and what is supposed to happen, I am finding that to spend one hour planning to fail, is messing with my head a bit…

I wonder where and how often I allow myself to plan to fail so I can grow in character and strength…

I wonder where I have called something a failure when perhaps a more positive word could be attached….

And so, when I am bench pressing or leg curling, I am learning to not think about the reality of failure, but focusing on each lift or curl and remembering that I have a vision….

And if I am going to make my vision a reality, failure will help me to grow in many ways….
