Failure is an Option, Not an IdentityRoad To Reinvention

Failure is an Option, Not an Identity

In a world that is so hyper-focused on achievements and accolades, it is no wonder we allow our failures to define who we are, and even our entire identities. It’s time to break free from the hold that failure has over us.

In this episode, Sherrell talks about the firm grip that failure has on us, and how to shift our perspective on failure into something we should embrace, and not fear. She also shares how failure can bring you freedom if you allow it to, and the steps you can take to start letting go of past mistakes and past versions of yourself in order to step into the new you.

So, tune in as Sherell discusses how to approach mistakes better next time, especially since failure is only an option, not an identity!

• Reinvention is about letting go of the past versions of yourself
• Do not ascribe an identity to your failures
• Take advantage of every aligned opportunity
• Reflect and revert into creation mode
• Write out who you are, who you love, and how you show up for yourself and others

“Sometimes things must die to bring you relief and peace, and move you out of your comfort zone and onto something better.”
“If you're grappling with how failure has stripped you of who you are, take a second to just pause.
