Welcome to the final part of this life-changing series. I hope that you take something out of this series that will help you in your journey called life.

PAST FAILURES; Don't be limited by them
Everyone has failed at some point in their lives. Even the most successful people have failed and still fail. But what separates people who have failed from those that are called failures, is the ability to get back up and keep going. Many people are limited in life because they allow their past failures to become road blocks for them. Some become so afraid of failing that they stop trying. While others just give up on themselves all together.
I just wanted to encourage you to not give up on yourself and dream because of past failures or the fear of failure. That you've failed in the past is not a reason to quit trying because everybody has and will fail at something in their life time. Do not become like those people who have allowed failure to negatively determine and change the course of their lives forever. You can choose to keep going in the midst of your storm, or let that storm make you feel not good enough for anything good. Do you know that there are people who carry a burden of failure with them wherever they go? This burden that they carry morphs into the feeling of guilt and fear. Which sometimes leaves people feeling guilty about their achievements. Because they often allow themselves to think that their success would be taken away from them, if anyone finds out about their past failures. Let's not allow ourselves become tragic victims of our own failures.

Whenever I get emails from women asking my advice on how to move on from a relationship or overcome a certain feeling of not being good enough, I often tell them to embrace who they are. A huge part of embracing who you are is knowing that you are the combination of your good, bad, and ugly experiences in life. When you deny what you've been through because it makes you feel not worthy, it becomes a lot harder to overcome that feeling of not being good enough. But when you get to the point where you make a deliberate decision to embrace who you and believe that you deserve the good things happening in your life, that's when you will start looking forward to new opportunities that are coming in the future. You won't feel the need to waste valuable time and energy in trying to prove yourself to people on why you deserve to succeed or not. You don't owe anybody an apology for desiring to succeed or for even succeeding. Embrace your success and everything that has led and brought you to it. Our past failures are supposed to teach us lessons that will move us in the right direction to our desired success. In order words, our past failures could have been our success in disguise.

All three of the factors that are covered in this series contribute to how we see and feel about ourselves in general. In the end, what matters is that we let go of those things that pull us down and embrace those ones that lift us up. Thank you for reading this today. I appreciate you! Have a blessed day!
