Hey I-Team! I hope this month finds you well as you live your best life. It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving Break is literally right around the corner. But with the challenges of returning back to all day in-person learning while still in the midst of a pandemic, the break can't get here fast enough. I think we need that time to just get away from the daily work routine so that we can refocus as we move forward in this school year. And speaking of moving forward, to my surprise John C. Maxwell has a book that's the exact same title of my post! I honestly had no idea of his book title until I did a google search. I guess it goes to show you that great minds really do think alike :)!!!
But in all seriousness, many times when we face challenges, we worry about the outcome. I think the first first question that comes to our mind is "what if I fail?" Although failure is inevitable, there's so much to be learned from it. In fact, it's through our failures that we're able to move forward. I talk more specifically about this topic and offer inspiration regardless of where you are in your life or your career; so head on over to the Intentional Instruction Podcast to listen to the episode.
The Intentional Toolkit
Inside the Intentional Toolkit, I included a link to author John C. Maxwell's book "Failing Forward: Turning Mistakes into Stepping Stones for Success". I've also included a few articles that are timely and are connected to the blog and podcast discussion. To access them just click on the toolkit at the bottom of this page. From there you'll be able to open the PDF. As always, I hope you find these resources useful.

Well that's all for now. But in this season of Thanksgiving, I encourage you to celebrate those times that you stepped out there and took a risk. You may have failed miserably, but you kept going. Maybe that's your current situation right now and if that's the case, learn the lessons as you anticipate all the wonderful blessings that will unfold right before your eyes. Until next time, go out there and be GREAT!
