“Suck Your Way to Success

Good Morning Friends!!

I am thankful this Thursday for a saying I heard last weekend,

“Suck your way to SUCCESS”

As children, we weren’t afraid to fall, to make a mess, or to get it wrong.  Kids don’t dwell on their mess-ups. They are too focused on trying again, and getting to the thing they desire. They exhibit a resilience that is inspiring.

Somewhere along the way, as we grow into adulthood, we fall for the lie that we must be perfect or at the very least not make a mistake.  Fear of failure, of what others might think, of looking stupid … can completely shut us down from going for our goals and dreams.  As we consider the default wiring of our lower brain with its tribal paranoia, extreme survivalism and natural man tendencies compounded by its negativity bias, the tendency to avoid messing up is completely understandable. However, it doesn’t serve us!

I’m grateful for the challenge I hear in this catchy saying, “Suck your way to success!!”.  Failure and success are next door neighbors.  We must pass by failure before we can get to success.  The more we suck at something, the quicker we will learn how to not suck at it. 😉 We can’t know how to do something until we actually try doing it.  The beautiful part of the process isn’t really even the result of success.  It’s the process of growth where we show grit, perseverance, resilience, determination and patience.  It’s the building of character and the journey we go through of becoming that matters- not the end product.  

So… “Suck your way to success!!”  Embrace the suck.  Live by the motto, “I either win or I learn”.  View each failure as proof of courage and growth.  Get out there and live your best life by taking chances on yourself, even if you might not be good at it yet.  

As we strive to “Suck our way to success”, remembering Thomas Edison can inspire us.  He tried 2000 different materials in search of a filament for the lightbulb, and executed 1000 failed trials until he was finally made a working light bulb.  When asked, “How did it feel to fail 1000 times?” Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1000 times.  The light bulb was an invention with 1000 steps.”

How many steps will be required for you to reach your goal?  You won’t know until you start trying, failing, learning and trying again.  Remember, it’s the vulnerability of not being perfect that connects us to each other.  Together we rise. 


Rooting for you always,
