Moms Know Failure Leads to Success


When we start working from home for the first time or do anything brand new often times we experience failure.  Moms understand this very well because usually they are the ones that taught us a lot of first in our lives.  Could you imagine what your life would be like if the first time you were learning to go to the restroom and failed and your mom gave up teaching you?  What about if the first time you were learning to walk and fell down what if your mom stopped teaching you?  Today you don’t have to walk around with a big bulky diaper on or crawl everywhere because moms understand that failure ultimately leads to success.

Since moms have proven this example over and over again.  How come throughout life we’ve all benefitted from this model but we never adopt it.  Look at our marriages, careers and financial goals in life.  How many people wait till they hit one barrier to give up or quit.  Why is our divorce rate so high in our country?  Some of us choose a dead in job so we don’t have to deal with the challenge of going after more.  We get in this comfort zone.  Many of us have the desire to be our own boss, own our own business and/or work from home entirely but we had one bad experience or we are afraid of a bad experience so we stop working towards our goals.  Did we learn to pee right the first or second time?  Good thing mom stuck in there with us!

Being an entrepreneur, starting any business working for ourselves requires that mom trait.  Knowing that the end result is going to be better than were we are.  Understanding that we learn through failure and without failure we cannot succeed.  We can’t learn what to do right if we are afraid of what could go wrong.  Listen we have to be smart, we need to make sure the right tools are in place for success but at the end of the day we have to make the choice to succeed.  When we make that choice we choose just like mom did to never give up and press on till we get it right!

Thanks Mom,
