When we fall and fail - there is a reason for it. Failure is not without cause. In some cases the cause may be your own doing. In other cases the cause might be external. No matter how you slice it - failure is usually a way for us to come back to center, to regroup ourselves and get more humble.
In other words - failure is nothing but an opportunity. An opportunity to review who you are, what you’re doing and what is your true purpose. An opportunity to begin anew with lessons from the previous failures. A more resilient, more educated, more informed you.
Failure can be an asset - we all need failure. It’s the equivalent of learning about pain at a young age. You have to experience to know what you’re able to do. Those who don’t experience failure are doomed to fall - drastically. Take a look at what happens to people who are unable to feel pain (they usually don’t live very long).
While failure is to be avoided - it shouldn’t be crippling, it shouldn’t be scary, and it shouldn’t stop you from becoming a better, stronger you.
This series of content is a small experiment. I pledged to create a piece of content on my site for the next 365 days. You can read the opening post here. The posts aren’t limited to thoughts or ideas, they’re really just a way for me to create original content. If you got any feedback/questions, please reach out. Thanks for looking.
