How many Diets have you "failed" at? If you're like most of us, more than one. Maybe many more than one. But, it's not if you fail or how many times you fail that counts. It's how you handle failure that matters in the long run. The Same Coin Failure and success are two sides of the same coin. Think of just about everything in life. You almost never have success without failure. You learned to walk by falling down 100's if not 1,000's of times. But you never felt like a failure and were never labelled as a failure. Mom and Dad kept encouraging you and you kept getting up and trying repeatedly until you got it right.
You learned to read by messing up your alphabet enough times to finally get it right. By messing up writing out the letters 'till you got them right. By misspelling and misreading the words until you got them right. The mistakes were plentiful. But you were never a failure - you were just learning. Same with riding a bike, driving a car, playing a sport, dating, for gosh sakes. Choosing a career or a mate, perhaps. Life is a trial and error process where failure and success are two sides of the same coin.
