Sitting At The Table With Failure

We’ve heard it all before. We hear it all the time. “I succeeded because I failed. ”

Michael Jordan  – “I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Joyce Meyer – “failing at a thing doesn’t make you a failure.”

Bill Gates- “It’s fine to celebrate success but its more important to head the lessons of failure.”

So we’re inspired. We’re focused on the possibility of what lies ahead for us. Because if their success came from failure, so can ours. But there’s something more to it than just failure leading to success. And really, it’s not the failure that brought them success. It’s their strength. Their drive. Their positive attitude. Passion. Motivation. Inspiration. It’s what they bring to the table that failure decided to sit at. It’s the fact that they saw failure as an irrelevant force. It’s that they kept smiling. Hoping. Moving forward. So really, failure doesn’t bring success. YOU bring success. And if you can be strong enough to know that failure is an irrelevant force, well, then the possibilities might just be absolutely endless for you. __a.c.



The thought of most individuals when it comes to a relationship is that it needs to be a 100/100 matches effort. That makes sense, right? The only problem with it is that they think that 100/100 match effort only applies to a relationship of themselves WITH another individual. That’s the only relationship they apply it to. That’s the only relationship they set perfect match standards for. But what about the relationship we have with ourselves? See, we all plan goals, set goals, but often, we don’t reach those goals. Why is that? It’s because we don’t match ourselves. The part of us that caries out goals doesn’t match the part of us that plans and sets goals. That part of us falls short- and instead of holding that part of us accountable like we would another individual who doesn’t match our 100, we just accept it. Don’t accept it. Be in a 100/100 relationship with yourself. It’s extremely possible. And just like your 100/100 match relationship with someone else will make you happier, your 100/100 match relationship with yourself will, too.


He Won’t Be The Only One

He won’t be the only one that says he loves you. He won’t be the only one who can send you flowers, but chooses not to. He won’t be the only one who could call you beautiful but goes with the word sexy instead. He won’t be the only one who tells you he isn’t calling you tonight because he has another party to go to with his boys. He won’t be the only one who thinks you need to do stuff for him because he made you his girl. He won’t be the only one who makes you think something’s missing from your life, but tells you you can’t find better than him. He won’t be the only one who, between a few smiles, reminds you of your ex, more importantly, why you left him. He won’t be the only one who won’t open the door for you. Who doesn’t take you out on dates. Who doesn’t make you feel as important as you make him feel. So in a whole where you’re searching for “the one” I think there’s a better decision out there for you to make.

We are a species that loves to point out how our differences make us incompatible with one another.  What we fail to realize at first sight is that we all have much more in common than we have that differs.  One of the most important things we all share is that we have both the power and the ability to change the world for the better.  All we have to do is become the best version of ourselves.  It’s much simpler than we make it out to be–we just need to answer a few questions about ourselves so we can realize the person we are, the person we want to be, and the person we can be.  Check out my book Les Poems: a beautiful life at and see for yourself.  You CAN impact the world on a large scale. Don’t hold yourself back!
