I wish I could tell you that life is fair, but I have a strong understanding that you all know the truth. As wise people say, “we are all failures- at least the best of us are.” So never give up striving to achieve your dream.
There are two sides to every coin and so don’t fear failure. We know that we might fail the very moment we begin. So I wonder, what holds us back from giving our best. Sometimes you can be so prepared, and still fail.
Success stories are best but failure stories are better. Most people when they come out of college want to change the world, want to get married, want to have kids and change the way people are working now. But they get into the middle and discover it was harder than they thought. None of the trees behind them are getting smaller and none of the trees ahead are getting bigger. This is the time when frustration of failure begins to erode the once passionate soul.
The end of a relationship is not always a failure. Sometimes all the love in the world is not enough to save something. It is that simple. The end of a glorious corporate career is not always a failure. Sometimes all the commitment in the world is not enough to save something. It is that simple. The end of a profitable business is not always a failure. Sometimes all the intelligence in the world is not enough to save something. It is that simple. No matter how bad things get, never allow your thoughts to convince you to settle for the way things are at the moment. Accept that in spite of all the love, commitment & intelligence; there is somewhere in the journey that you made wrong choices but that should not stop you from rising again . It’s not up to chance, it’s up to you. Why is it that, once fallen, we do not try to rise, and, having lost one thing, we do not seek another? Why?
Believe in the process and continue to do all the little and big things to bring out the BEST in yourself. You are not obligated to win always but you always have to give your best. Failure is a bruise not a tattoo. At some point you need to stop looking out at others and start looking inward, at yourself, at your own accomplishments and your own failures. Its only when you begin to look inward that you can begin to have an effect on those out there.
I leave you today with a thought as why are you going to choose failure when success is an option? why are you going to choose pain when joy is an option?
Discover a purpose that gives you passion. Develop a plan that makes you persistent. Design a preparation that motivates you to optimize your potentials. And even then if you fail, celebrate your commitment that led you to give your best and keep going never ever to give up. Make the broken look beautiful with your signature magic of vitality and purity.
