Everyone has a story of failure and disadvantage—those things we wish were done differently, better, or not at all.Failure is defined by Merriam-Webster dictionary as “the action or state of not functioning.” In other words, failure’s something that stops; gets you nowhere. Do you stop moving, stop breathing, or stop living when things don’t go as planned?
Don’t you always take another step, even if it was just to pick yourself up out of bed today? Even when you think you failed, you haven’t because you’re still taking in air.
Failure is a misnomer. It is an attempt to describe an event that leaves us with nothing—no opportunities, no chances, no understanding. When is that ever the case?
Failure is only failure if you say it is. It only exists if you’re not willing to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and walk on. Besides, success depends on those struggles, those attempts, those defeats. Success requires that climb up.
Success is a journey; it consists of every trial and triumph combined. And the best kind of journey…
- Makes you stronger
- Teaches you more about yourself
- Gives you insight and answers
- Is an opportunity to evaluate and do different
- Is better than the regret of not doing
- Puts your goals within reach
failure can be success in the making…
“Like success, failure is many things to many people. With Positive Mental Attitude, failure is a learning experience, a rung on the ladder, a plateau at which to get your thoughts in order and prepare to try again.”
