Give yourself permission to fail

Sometimes the greatest step toward success is giving yourself permission to fail.

Often allowing for your shortcomings and for times of relapse into old, unhealthy behaviors takes the pressure of success away, and allows you to finally succeed in reaching your goals.

Sometimes the relapses allow for better insight and understanding of your motivations, priorities, and desires.

When changing into new behaviors, relapsing into old behaviors is a natural occurrence. If you realize relapses happen, and that they are a normal common occurrence, you allow yourself to be human.
