“Don’t waste your time hating failure. Failure is a greater teacher than success.” — Clarissa Pinkola Estus


When I got this quote in my email in box a few months ago, I read it and saved it in a folder called “inspirational.” I was originally going to forward it on to a friend who was going through a tough time, but it actually speaks to my life right now too. It is absolutely true that in order to succeed, you have to fail a few times. You won’t know what’s going to work for you unless you find out what doesn’t. I’ve now learned that being too much of a creature of habit (eating the same thing or exercising the same way, all the time) isn’t the way I need to go. It taught me that I need to keep my workouts fresh and my nutrition changing constantly. Don’t be afraid to fail, or admit to it, because it truly is the best way to learn.
