If You're Going to Fail, Fail Forward

We will experience things that we or others will label as a failure. There have been circumstances where we put forth our best effort, but the outcome was not what we projected or expected. This can leave us in a state of confusion, frustration, and shame. We begin the blame game and the mantra of what we coulda, shoulda, woulda have done to make it happen the way we wanted. The truth is, the perceived failure had a purpose. It came to reach, teach, and change us from the inside out. The situation that has caused so much turmoil within us must be embraced and not rejected.  We are to review the process with the guidance and insight of the Holy Spirit. We allow the Spirit to reveal what was behind the surface and what to do next. Most importantly, we learn our challenges can transition us to a better version of ourselves, we can step out in faith into a new path, and we can allow the situation to show us who we really are at the core. What was our motivation? Why did we make the choices we made? and What's next now that we have insight and wisdom?  When we learn to accept our challenges and allow them to teach and grow us we see what we perceived as  "Failure" was actually a gift and blessing from God. #Coreworkulm #ulmuhammad #manifest2016
