How to Fail Gracefully

How often do we find ourselves telling a someone, “you have to be patient.”

This may in the context of waiting in line, waiting for Christmas, waiting for a server, or waiting for love.

Notice how often times patience is related to “waiting,” – basically for something to happen?


How frustrated do we get when we’re not getting the grades that we want, the recognition at work, or when we can get to next level in our game, workouts, etc.?


Rather than focusing on the failures and frustrations, what would it be like to be patient with ourselves? Patient with our learning process? Patient with the journey to succeeding?


My challenge to you would be to be patient with your failures, your setbacks, and shortcomings,

and focus on the patience of your practice, your efforts, and with yourself.


You are worthy of being patient with yourself.
