Learn from it, overcome it, keep moving forward, no matter what
When we fall and bruise ourselves, we don’t just say: “well, maybe walking isn’t for me,” we get up, dust ourselves off, cover up our bruises and keep on going. So, why do many of us feel that failure is something that is permanent, something that if experienced once, should never be experience again and be avoided at all costs? Because, it shouldn’t be avoided. Failure is like a small pebble on a very long and exciting road we call life When failure is encountered, all we need to do is move that small pebble away, study it, learn what we can from that experience and just keep on walking.
I know that I make it sound like it’s so easy to overcome failure and find a solution to keep moving forward, however, in reality, anyone who has experienced failure before knows and understands that it’s not always that easy, and you are right, sometimes it is not. Overcoming failure can be often very challenging, frustrating, discouraging, demotivating, etc. But what I am saying is that even though it can be all these things, it is not permanent. Failure can only become permanent if we choose to see it this way in our own mind and try to convince others that it is so. Stop allowing you own negative thoughts, your mind, your own challenging circumstances, dictate how you should see yourself in the mirror, how you should respond to temporary setbacks.
Remember, failure is not permanent unless we choose to make it so. In almost every difficult situation, exists a solution. It’s not always easy to find it though, and sometimes we must spend hours, days, weeks, months, or even years looking for a solution. Therefore, it’s very important that we remain patient and focused on a positive outcome when things get and remain tough for some time. It’s important to also remember that as long as we have the desire to find solution and win, and get ourselves out of difficulty we may be in, when we are ready to keep going and keep trying no matter how difficult or unpromising our efforts may get, we will eventually find that what we seek. Why? Because, we try. Because, we did not give up when everyone else did. Because, we knew and believed that failure is temporary.
So, let’s stop treating failure as some kind of mountain that we cannot climb, and let’s being looking at each interaction with failure as a challenge of our own motivation and desire to win each and every day. Why? Because, we can!
