💡"What we perceive as failure may simply be our inner being's way of telling us that we are ready to move to a new level of growth." -Anne Wilson Schaef⚡

As we kick off a new year and reflect on accomplishments and successes from 2017, it's likely (because of our brain's bias) that there are some things you wish were different, some goals you didn't hit, some things you may be categorizing as "failures."

I'll go first--my book's not done. One of my 2 big goals for the year was to finish it, and that's not going to happen. I changed themes in November, which was the right thing for me and my business, but that required a major overhaul/delay.

It's more important to me to do it RIGHT than to hit an arbitrary deadline, though, so I've worked to make peace with that and feel confident that when it DOES launch, it will be the right time for me, my business, and everyone who comes across it (Ellen Show, here I come)!

So, in that spirit:

⚡What if these "failures" are preparing you for your true path and are just lessons on your journey?

⚡What if they are laying the groundwork, a strong foundation for your growth in 2018?

⚡What if they're stepping stones necessary to help you step into your true potential and live your real passion?

It might not be clear how these things are true right now, and I KNOW it can feel super confusing and frustrating in the midst of it, but what if everything really is happening FOR you rather than TO you?

How would believing that change your life?
