quote I read to day on businessweek.com "Everyone fears failure. But breakthroughs depend on it. The best companies embrace their mistakes and learn from them "
I know I make the mistake that if I struggle, if I can't attain a goal, I just give up. I feel like a failure. I ask myself, when I don't attain a goal why do I want to give up? Did I not reach it for lack of trying or did I really try and still not reach it. To be honest with myself, it's probably not trying. I think SPARKPEOPLE has the best tools for us to treat our goals of loosing weight or maintaining, getting healthier.....whatever they are, like a business. When we "fail" we can look back and see what we ate and why we failed. Look at our exercise. Sometimes we are eating more. I think my failures is not because I can't, but because I'm not. I have so many EXCUSES. If I only had this kind of motivation, if I only had someone to help me, to exercise with, to push me, to help me eat better I could do this. But what it really boils down to is I have to want this bad enough for myself, I have to do it only for me. I can't depend on others because what if those people aren't around? I have to change my attitude and I have to do this. I have to stay motivated and I have to start tracking everything, food, exercise, water intake, sugar levels. I have to treat my life like a business. I will not give up. I will only fail if I refuse to get back up and jump on the band wagon.
