Redefining the "F" Word


As infants, we take a step and fall, get back up, and do it again and again

until we gain the ability to walk. If we considered the first, second, or even the twentieth fall a failure, we’d never learn to walk.


The Oxford dictionary states failure as “a lack of success”.

This definition “fails” take into account 2 things:

1. Time – it only states a current lack of (the infant can’t currently walk but will in time)

2.Drive – ones will to persevere forward from the current lack of (the infant always gets up & tries again)


So how do we come to define failure as “can’t”, “too hard”, “not good enough”?


If one is not born with the definition of failure than does it fall on past experiences? Is it based on one’s upbringing? On other people’s opinions, teachings, expectations? Is failure a learned mindset and behavior?


Regardless of the cause of your definition of failure, you still have the opportunity to redefine what it means to affect your future.


How you redefine failure will determine your success!


Do you see failure as an opportunity to learn? As an opportunity to build resiliency? As a moment to reevaluate and do things better? As a vital aspect of progression?


Just because you fail at an attempt at health doesn’t mean you are a failure. It’s an opportunity to learn, get smarter, stronger, to reevaluate, and continue forward.


With health, redefining failure aims to smash the fear of failure

and not ever giving up on health.


Remember, the acronym for F.A.I.L. is “From Attempting Is Learning”.


Redefining the “F” word could ultimately lead you to the healthiest life you desires.
