You Only Fail When…

Photo by Liza Summer
You only fail when you stop trying,
When you give up, when you stop learning,
When you stop asking the right questions,
When you beat yourself up, 
When you give in to procrastination.

You only fail when you don't even try,
When you try to control everything,
When you don't accept yourself,
When you are not comfortable with yourself.

You only fail when you give in to negative thoughts,
When you don't find a way to be yourself,
When you do not focus on expressing yourself,
When you don't love the person you see in the mirror
Every morning, every day. 

When you fail, focus on yourself.
Because you need you, the real you, 
To move your life forward.
