Failure is not the end

In life there will be times when you are faced with situations that go against what you have worked and hoped for. But the truth of the matter is, life does not end there.

So what if you’ve already broken your new year’s resolution, skipped a workout or got fired from a job, it is not the end of the world. It may seem like it for a while but that is where life is giving you a pit stop. What you do from then on moves you to a state (best or worst) in your future.

Take a moment and stop, but then you better get up. You owe it to yourself to do at least that.

Often times, people think that failure is the end of all things therefore they should do their best to avoid it. However, when it eventually comes their way, they are at loss.

I love the analogy of ‘burning the boats’ so that you are left with no choice but to make whatever you do a success. Therefore I would like to invite you, instead of avoiding failure, embrace it. Confront it. Be prepared for it and plan how you would overcome it.

Imagine you’re up on stage delivering an important speech and you mixed up your lines. What will you do?

“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” – Charles R. Swindoll
