No Failure, by Jenny Emerson, LMFT, LMT

“God did not create you to fail.”  - Tommy Coletta

I saw this quote recently and it jumped off the page at me. I confess that I know nothing about Tommy Coletta but that I agree with him on this sentence 100%. 

God created us because It wants us. God was lonely and wanted to experience love with us. So why oh why would an entity that is so all knowing, all powerful, and all loving create something that is a failure. It wouldn’t and It didn’t!

Regardless of what you have done, what you have said, where you have been or what you achieve or don’t achieve – YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE!  God wants you to succeed. God wants you to experience joy, love and laughter. So go do it!

Some days you may only experience .0005% success. Some days you may experience 100%. You may be surprised what would constitute as success if you would give yourself a break. As my mentor often challenges me, “What if there are no mistakes? What if there are only different lessons to learn?”

God did not create you to fail… So go succeed!
