When you choose yourself, you must be willing to fail! Yes fail, and fail miserably! I am sure as you read this you are wondering what kind of crazy encouragement this is supposed to be.  I must tell you that in order to do anything; you must first be willing to fall flat on your face in failure! To give an example; Last year, I put together a conference for pastors. It was a great idea, had a website, some promotional material, then something came up in my life that was simply much more important and I didn’t make the time needed to promote the conference as I had originally intended. Needless to say, without promotion, even the best idea founders. I had a few people sign up who stumbled across the website, but not enough to make it really happen…it was an epic fail. Did I stop? Of course not.

This year, as president of the South Carolina Chapter of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (SCAATSP), I put together a successful inaugural fall workshop.  We must be willing to fail and overcome that failure when we experience it if we are to ever have true triumphant success!
