LESSONS IN FAILURE

I believe that there’s a lesson in almost everything that you do and every experience, and getting the lesson is how you move forward. Some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default. Ultimately, we all have to decide for ourselves what constitutes failure, but the world is quite eager to give you a set of criteria if you let it.

Now, failure is not fun. It is that period of your life which is a dark one, and you have no idea what is going to be the next step. You will have no idea how far the tunnel extended, and for a long time, any light at the end of it will be a hope rather than a reality.

The other side of the coin is failure will give you an inner security that you will never attain by passing examinations. Failure will teach you things about yourself that you could have learned no other way. Failure will let you discover that you have a strong will, and more discipline than you suspected; you will also found out that you have friends whose value was truly above the price of rubies. The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive. You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift, though it is painfully won is worth more than any qualification you ever earned.

It is no easy situation to experience failure but if you accept your ‘misfortune’ and handle it right, your perceived failure can be a catalyst for profound reinvention. The beautiful thing about learning in failure is that nobody can take that lesson away from you.

The world has so many lessons to teach you. I consider the world, this Earth, to be like a school and our life the classrooms. And sometimes here in this Planet Earth School the lessons often come dressed up as detours or roadblocks. And sometimes as full-blown crises. And the secret I’ve learned to getting ahead is being open to the lessons, lessons from the grandest university of all, that is, the universe itself.

It’s being able to walk through life eager and open to self-improvement and that which is going to best help you evolve and grow into more of ourselves.

Mistakes, challenges, obstacles, and set backs all offer opportunities to sharpen skills, focus energies, stir the creative juices, think smarter, act faster and perform better.

Every set back should give you a great lesson and learn from the lesson to become a very educated man/woman in this journey of life.  LETS LEARN FROM OUR FAILURES.
