Taking Action and Failing

So sometimes when you take Action it doesn’t always go as you expect. Stay tuned to find out what happened in this interesting series of events…

Yesterday, I finally decided to Act on an idea that I had for the last three days. I was just sitting in a Cafe getting some work done, when it hit me… It hit me like a “bag of bricks.” I knew I had to do it. I wasn’t nervous to the slightest. I had to make a big move and put myself out there. Who knows what the outcome would be, but my decision was made… I’m going to create a public event, that will allow people to try out my training style.

That’s exactly what I did too. I created the event, online, and I even put a little flair to it to motivate people to come with the right energy. Here’s what I opened my post with…

“Are you trying to start the weekend off right with a Good Ole’ ass kickin! Then join me at this epic event. We will meet on the bleachers at the football stadium.”

Regardless of what you think about it, whether you think it’s good, bad, or just crazy, understand this, I was psyched up and ready to go for this class. So I decided to check the event sharing app when I got back to my place later that night to see my newly created event. Little did I know that I had put the wrong date in… for a month and a half later!

To say the least, I wasn’t very happy, but after seeing that, I did try to fix it but to no avail. After figuring out that I was only giving two days notice to this event, I thought, “Maybe it’s a good idea to schedule for the following weekend.” That might give me more time to generate a larger group to come out and experience my training.

In short, I was on full throttle and then came to a full stop within a day. Through this failure I was reminded of a valuable lesson that, ‘Patience is key.’ That also reminds me of a quote…

“The pyramids weren’t built in a day.” -Anonymous
