Have you ever noticed that when people are not where they want to be, their careers may not be as advanced as they like or are not in love as long as they have dreamed of, they tend to hit themselves? They begin to say “I am not this” or “I am not”, as if they had been condemned in some way because they lacked a particular quality or trait.
Realistically, we all have a responsibility of how our lives transform. After all, if we want something, then it is we who have to do the work to get it. However, if you always judge yourself, tell yourself that you have failed things, it will stop you. It will prevent you from moving forward, such as a 200-pound backpack securely attached to your back.
But what happens with failure is that it won’t be final … that is, unless you allow it. In fact, if you look at some of the greatest and most famous people in history, they will never succeed if they suffer from failure and are simply accepted as their destiny.
Take Thomas Edison, for example. His teachers literally call him “stupid” and the first employer allowed him to leave because he was “unproductive.” Regardless, he still had a dream inside him to illuminate the rest of the world.
The first time he tried to make a lamp, he failed. The second time, failed. Cent time, failed. Did you stop? Do you simply accept your failures as your fate? No. He moved. He failed over and over until the 1000th hour … You won’t know … I was born a light bulb.
Think about where we will be today if you give up any of the previous 999 times. Think about the impact it would have on our existence today if I said, “Well, I’m giving up. I’m failing. It seems I’m stupid and unproductive.”
As great hockey player Wayne Gretzky once said: “You miss 100 per cent of the shots you never made.” Or, as Michael Jordan said, “I have failed over and over again in my life and that’s why I succeeded,” “while continuing,” obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run to the wall, don’t spin and discover, and learn how to climb, cross or dissolve it. ”
Failure is failure only if you decide to surrender. As long as you don’t, this is simply a lesson. It’s a tool that tells you what doesn’t work so you can remove this idea from your list of possibilities and move on to something effective.
Also remember that you are not alone when it comes to failure, so stop punishing yourself. Jack Canfield, co-author of the “Soup for the Soul” series, contacted 144 different publishers before he found one who supposedly thought about this collection of books. Again, if I had given up any of those times, the world would not have been blessed with the many inspiring and motivating stories it contained.
Again, failure is failure only when you surrender. Then don’t do that. OK?
