Many times in life we miss our mark. We set out to achieve something, but we don’t make it. We then fall into the spiral of depression where we feel like a looser. We believe we have let everyone down including ourselves.
Life hits us hard often and we as individuals have to find a resolve in ourselves to get past it. However, that is not easy. The only way we can do that is to accept failures or disappointments. You have to face the fact that things happen; there is no progress without struggle.
A person has to know in their heart that failing is a part of life, and in my opinion you learn more from failing than you do from being successful. The old saying ‘ no pain no gain ‘ still remains true today. What does not kill you will make you stronger.
You have to look beyond the existential factors of life when we fail, and you will fail, with our eyes firmly set on the prize at hand. Failure is only temporary and can be overcome if you refuse to quit. For example, think about when you learned how to ride a bicycle you fell several times; yet you got back up. But understand this, each time you fell down, you got better, why because you learned from the failing before.
In closing, I reiterate you will fail, but that doesn’t mean you are a failure. Success and failure go hand and hand one cannot exist without the other. Keep your head up and fail forward.
