My goal for 2022 is 50 fails.
Ok, so maybe that needs an explanation.
When I used to set goals, I didn’t challenge myself. I felt setting goals was scary, and I didn’t want to fail. So I set my goals so low, I knew I wouldn’t have to stretch too much to reach them.
But I have learned that “Playing it safe” is playing small. I want to take a risk…I want to put myself out there…I want to think BIG.
2022 is here, and it is a blank page.
When I look back on 2022, I want to see how far I have come, how much I have grown and how BIG I can dream!
In order to grow in 2022, I need to get a bit uncomfortable. I need to take a risk, and that means I will probably fail. A lot. So I am shooting for 50 fails!
To fail 50 times, I have to set 50 goals that are a little out of my reach. The goal is to get comfortable with failing. If I never try, I never fail. But if I never try, I also never grow! When I reach 25% of a goal, and fail to reach the final 75%, I still win. If I reach 80% of a goal, I still fail, but I’ll take that any day of the week! Imagine how far I will progress in a year of 50 fails.
This is on the wall of the boxing gym that I joined this year. Another fail. My goal was to get there three days a week, but with just one or two workouts a week, I already feel stronger!
So who is with me? Maybe you already have a great goal for 2022. Maybe you are afraid to set goals that are a little out of your comfort zone. So let’s learn to fail together! When we have 50 fails, imagine how many wins we will have recorded!!
