Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker.
Failure is delay, not defeat.
It is a temporary detour, not a dead end.
American Author and Motivational Speaker
Everyone who reads this has been a failure. Some of us have been repeated failures. How do we deal with this common experience?
Each time we have failed we should have learned something. I am especially hard headed evidently because I have committed the same failures repeatedly. I must think it is fun or something.
I guess the only redeeming quality of this is I have kept coming back and trying again. I have only tried I guess. As Yoda said, "There is only do or do not, there is no try". I did not "do", I only tried. I just kept delaying success. Detour after detour. I never found the dead end try as I may because I have kept coming back for more disappointment. I even took the same path over and over again. What's up with that?
Isn't this an encouraging post? :-)
Success should be our teacher, not our enabler.
Success is a step forward, not a step back.
Success can be permanent, not a temporary event.
Success can become a habit. It can be what we expect of ourselves. It can become so normal for us that failure is a thing of the past. I think that feels a lot better than failure.
Let's determine that each night when we lay our heads down for a sweet sleep that we will be happy with the day. Have you ever tried to fall asleep and things are keeping you awake? It's often regrets and rehashing the shortcomings of the day. It doesn't have to be that way does it? Each time we eat something we make a choice. It is always a choice. It doesn't matter the situation - it's always a choice. We choose each day whether we will be able to fall asleep peacefully or not.
I like peacefully better.
