Do You Set a Goal For Failures?

Hello Friends!

When you set your goals for 2016 did you include any goal for your failures?

I know it sounds crazy and while you’d probably not set a goal to fail, the thought brings up an intriguing question…

Do you have a fear of failure so you only set goals that you know you can achieve? Fear of failure is normal. I mean, come on, we were all raised with the belief that the opposite of success is failure. But, that’s not true! The opposite of success is not failure; it’s not trying or worse, giving up. That’s failure.

When asked about failure at Google, Peter Norvig, research director said, “Failure is inevitable. We just try to fail faster.”

That’s such a great perspective! If you set a goal to fail more often and faster, there’s a good chance that the impact of a potential failure won’t be that great and you will have built up a strong resilience muscle.

When you ask successful people about failure, they will tell you that they see failure as feedback to change course of direction.

Here’s what you do next time you experience failure: First, make a note about what you learned from the failure, get excited about what you just learned and move forward quickly.  Second, see yourself as an awesome risk taker and an unstoppable force! You just proved it by experiencing failure and moving forward fast.

The context to come from is: My life is supposed to have failures!

Giving myself permission to fail unlocked self-induced shackles and rocketed my next level of living.  Last year I rented out my Florida home and traveled all over Europe and America to write my book, Slay the Dragon and to work with my Life Matters Teams.  This year I sold that Florida home and moved 3000 miles west to the California coast.  I experiened faliures and disappointment with these two goals. But with my new perspective of failure, it didn’t matter how many challenges I experienced or if I failed with either of those goals…

LIFE WAS CALLING and I chose to answer!

What about you?

Are you willing to stretch what’s possible ~ even logical ~ for you this year? That stretch into the illogical is where I invite you to go! Look at your new year’s goals and add a few more that are improbable, illogical and will most likely fail. You just never know what seems improbably or illogical to you today (with your current mindset) is just what the future you knows is reality and logical for you tomorrow.

The ONLY way to usher in a new level of results is to usher in a new level of thinking. Take the cap off your thinking. Give yourself permission to get comfortable with failure and success will get comfortable with you.

Richest blessings,

Defy the Predictable

Defy the Predictable!

Well, it’s official…

We are in Day 93 of the countdown of 2009.

Let’s take a different approach to these last 93 days of 2009…

During last week’s Quantum Leap Coaching Call, where I was training on, “being cause in the matter of your life”, I decided to mute myself for a few minutes to see the response and reactions of each of my high level coaching clients.

What do you think they did?

As soon as the line went “dead” I heard Anneli from Stockholm say, “Hello, I think we lost Lisa.” Then Annet from Holland said, “I’ll email her now.” Paul from Canada said, “I’m calling her cell.” Joe from the US said, “Is everyone else still on?”

Then, finally, after 3½ minutes of figuring out that everyone was indeed still on the call (except the MIA Lisa!) Karin from Sweden said, “So, how is everyone doing with the homework assignment?” And she began generating the conversation that involved everyone sharing their experience with the homework and even training from last week’s Coaching Call.

It was awesome!

It made me feel like a proud Professor watching her students step up, take charge and be the Global Leaders we create ourselves to be in our Quantum Leap Coaching Program.

What about you?

What would you have done? Would you have kept quiet until your “leader” came back on the call? Or would you have generated the conversation and continued the coaching call?

It was a great exercise of self-introspection…

Some of my clients who did not generate the conversation shared they did not want to “look bossy” or take over.

Do you ever shy away from your power because you care too much what others’ may think of you?

Some of my clients shared they were getting annoyed with me for “dropping the call”! Ha, I love that honesty.

Do you move into judgment when things aren’t going the way you think they should?

We know with our study of Quantum Physics and Universal Laws that everything is created in the mind first! So, let this Rx Success Report be your invitation to realize where your thoughts are around being powerful; where your beliefs are in being cause in the matter of creating your life.

You defy the predictable when you realize you have the power to recreate yourself right now in the present moment.

No matter how you’ve been your entire life, you can choose a new way of being right now that will give you power, freedom and full self-expression.

Our Florence Mastermind Retreat Participants get on a conference call every day at 11:11am ET to create who we are each being! Let me tell you, these calls are powerful. We are choosing who we want to be and then declaring it to each other on these calls every day.

Today, I created myself to be unreasonable, powerful and miraculous! Keith created himself to be “focus and power”. Tammy created, “Inspirational!” Joe’s intention is, “Clarity and Power!” Laura said, “I am creating myself to be Genius!”

Wow, it is such a powerful practice… to create who you are being every day.

So, in getting back to creating your final 93 Days of 2009, I invite you to begin with how you choose to “BE”.

And from that space… and in that context, I want you to create your goals and intentions for 2009 AND… create the foundation you need to come to 2010 as, “The Best Year of Your Life!”

I’m passing on to you the homework assignment I gave my Quantum Leap Coaching Clients and invite you to write down what you want in the following areas and who you are committed to being in the process of manifesting it and creating:

“2010 The Best Year of My Life!”
Be unreasonable with yourself… Be open to creating breakthrough results in these areas… Come from the context, “Anything Is Possible” and watch God bless you with miracles beyond your wildest dreams.

When you are willing to be bold, outrageous and ridiculous with yourself, you will be rewarded with bold ideas, outrageous opportunities and ridiculous fun, love and abundance.

If you are interested in being a part of Quantum Leap Coaching and getting the training and accountability you need to create a success mind-set, make more profits and create your ideal life, register today at: Or call me directly at (954) 829-5693. Looking forward to hearing from you!

…93 Days to “The Best Year of Your Life!”

To you success,


Lisa Jimenez M.Ed.
