Hi all, hope you’re well. Welcome to the last quarter of this year! This year has flown by so quickly I very much can remember its first day.

Without being naive I’m sure some, for one reason or another, might not be as excited approaching the end of the year. Be it the difficulties and challenges you’ve experienced, unfulfilled goals and aspirations or lack of hope for the future. Those whose shoulder you hoped to lean on might have slipped right underneath your head. That job may no longer feel fulfilling. The business targets may no longer seem attainable. Life happens.  Unforeseeable situations occur, which we might not have control over. Is reminiscing failures or throwing in the towel really an option?

The mind is the launchpad of all success and failures. As much as it can aid productivity, it also can act as a hindering force, sabotaging your desire to perform. Your ability to channel your mind to sustain positivity, powering through emotional instability and acting on revised strategies will enable you rise to a state of maximum productivity. Also, have God involved; He is dependable.


Things to remember:

  • Don’t dwell on past failures
  • Don’t give up
  • Make a decision to move on
  • Revise strategies
  • Run with it!

Ps; If it should happen again, do it all over again!







“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.”– Samuel Beckett

“Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.”– Charlie Jones


What are your feel-good strategies, or tips on how to return to a positive mode after experiencing failure? Do share them below.
