Failure and Success…repeat

If you’re not failing,

you’re not trying.


Isn’t that what they say?

Someone said it anyway and I remembered it, because I hate failing and really, I’d like to avoid it at all costs.  Almost.

It’s just that sometimes you know there are thing you have to do, and those things may require a little failure to get them right.

You know those people who seem to be born with a silver spoon in their mouth and everything they touch turns to gold?

Ya, I’m not one of them.

Me and failure are on pretty tight terms, but failure is not the end.  It’s the mean to the end.

Practice makes perfect and all that nonsense we tell our kids when we want them to practice their instrument for music class.

Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.  Quote by Winston Churchill

If any one of you made it part-way through the video I posted yesterday, I applaud you.

We, Dani and I, know that video is much less than great, less than we were hoping and trying to record; however, I felt I had to share it, because it’s the first step, a failure if you will, in the journey toward toward the goal.

I think the T2 videos are a good idea.  I know they can and will be (someday) a wonderful resource, but it’s a bumpy road reaching the goal.

I hope you’ll hang in there with me, because I think the finished product with be worth all the intermittent successes and failures.

I haven’t lost my enthusiasm for this project and I hope you won’t either.

If you think of it, please say a prayer for me as I move on to the next T2 video chat.

And by all means, go check out Dani’s fitness blog.  She truly is a great encourager and an inspiration.

  1. I definitely don´t see it as a failure. You and I did our best with what we have. ;) We will use it and go with it. Thank you for the shout out for the fitness blog. Gotta get on the go with the next challenge. The fifth Christmas Crunch Challenge! I am excited about it and pray our video also encourages others on their journey.
    Praying for you and the T2 videos.

  2. Now I am very curious…I need to check out this video.

  3. You are your own worst critic. We all have to start somewhere…I applaud you for taking the dream out of hiding! Keep going – I can’t wait to see where God takes this.
