Top of the morning to my AML USA readers! Hope you all slept well last night and are refreshed and ready to take on this Monday and the week. Top of the day to the rest of my AML readers around the world, especially in the UK, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa.
It’s a new day and a new week and I thought to kick off our time together this week by letting you know it’s okay to fail, for failure is part of the building block/foundation for success. When you fail, it is a lesson in humility and you learn how to do things better.
I’m not saying open your arms and say, “hey failure! What’s up? Hang with me!” No. I am saying when the challenges come this week and you have given your very best whether in your personal or professional lives, if it doesn’t work out, don’t beat yourself over it. Step back, learn the lessons you are meant to learn and then rise again with even stronger determination to achieve your goals.
Each of you deserve happiness. You also deserve success. However, whoever said the road will be easy towards achieving happiness and/or success?
A member of one of the social media private groups I belong to shared the video clip below and it seems fitting to share the clip with you. I hope it encourages you all to never give up and for the many times you fall or will fall, all you gotta do is get up and go get it!
IT’S MONDAY PEOPLE. LET’S GO. LET’S GET IT! GO GET ‘EM!!

Quote to Encourage You, Especially When You Fall/Fail
“Use your voice as a hammer to stamp out toxic, disempowering, negative thoughts that can come into your mind. You can’t control the thoughts that come through your mind, but you can control the ones that you choose to dwell on. Talk back to yourself, and challenge the negative thinking that is robbing you of energy and focus. Use your voice as an instrument to inspire you, and to change the trauma into positive feelings. Look at yourself in a mirror and say “I love myself unconditionally.” Do this 21 times for the next 21 days.
You will experience a new love and appreciation for your higher self which will begin to express itself. Your mind and ego will tell you that this is foolish, childish, or that you don’t need to do this. Don’t be duped. Negative thoughts don’t want to die, and will struggle to remain alive. Speak life to yourself, with power, feeling, and conviction. Choose positive words that will transport your mind to a new reality. You deserve!” – Les Brown
