Lessons from a Recovering Doormat

Start the New Year Resolved Not to Fail

Everyone is making New Years resolutions. It all feels and sound wonderful but, often—very often—the determination to keep them fades soon after January 1st. I love ending the year knowing I didn’t have any failures. While you’ve probably heard it before, I’ll remind you that you don’t fail is you don’t quit. There have been many times in my life that things got hard, tough, or even seemed impossible. But my faith and determination got me through.

I feel very blessed to have the life and career that I do. The emails I get from people who’ve been helped by my writing or free self-love book give me the motivation to keep going. Each one I get is a special blessing! This is my last post of 2012. I want to leave you with some inspiration as you enter 2012. Even if you don’t accomplish what you want, not letting roadblocks stop you is success!

Every little bit of progress is success. You may not do something the way you want and get the rewards you hope for, but finishing what you start is success. Not quitting is success. Derek Redmond was expected to win the gold medal in his race in the 1992 Olympics. Watch what happened to him, how his dream of a medal vanished when he fell and how he ultimately triumphed because he refused to fail.

Shutting Yakkers Up Nicely
Have you ever just wanted to be left alone but someone intruded on your space? When I was a DoorMat and someone talked my ear off when I wanted silence I’d just smile and let them go on and on. I’d get mad inside and feel frustrated at my inability to say what I was feeling—SHUT UP! I’d g
