LEARN FROM YOUR FAILURES 
AND
DON'T BE AFRAID TO FAIL OFTEN.


A very dear friend of mine, who is at the top of his profession said to me last week---
(in reference to a comment I made about my new career of finding people who are
ready for a change in health and financial freedom)----- in reply to my
comment of
"IT'S GETTING EASIER!"


"EASY? If my employees say, 'THIS IS EASY!' then I see a RED FLAG.
RECRUITING
ISN'T EASY."

That got me thinking. I need to challenge myself to work a little harder.Push
my comfort zone and learn by making more mistakes. Believe me...this past
week I made quite a few mistakes and that was GOOD!!! Next week I plan to
make even more. I'm facing the fear and the lessons are plentiful!

This week I bought some red material and attached the material to some
sticks.
They look like RED FLAGS. I've hung them in my kitchen as a reminder…I'm not
working hard enough. If I want to have that feeling of success everyday, I need to
practice more on the things that I don't do very well and keep pushing out my comfort zone. 

This idea of practicing over and over new skills can be applied to anything especially our karate techniques.
