Failure may be viewed differently by others, but when mentioned, it often conjures up negative thoughts or creates an uneasy feeling in the pit of your stomach in most cases. We must realize that failure is an inevitable part of life on the highway to success. When we don’t succeed at the first, second or even third attempt we often become paralyzed by failure allowing it to dictate our reality for tomorrow. We will always meet with failure on our path to success. The burden that we carry will be lighter if we would change our perception of failure in understanding that: failure is nothing more than a valuable teacher providing a stepping stone towards to success.
We have the choice to let it be the wind beneath our wings instead of an anchor holding us back. Let us move forward with wisdom to achieving success. It is our choices today that create our tomorrows.
Celebrate “unending failure” everyday.
