FAILURE: FAILURES ARE LESSONS LEARNED ON THE PATHWAY TO GREATNESS
Failure and disappointment in ventures that did not succeed the first, second, and third time around. Ideas that were picture perfect in our minds and on paper, but never came to fruition. Researching, studying, and planning intensely for a vision that never becomes reality. Failure is a part of life that we all have experienced.
So, you had big dreams that never came true. You spent time on something that you thought was going to be successful and it fell through. When failure is something that seems like a constant pattern in your life, sometimes losing hope and confidence comes with it too. It’s very hard to continue when you are constantly faced with failures, but are they really failures? Let me explain.
Life takes us on a journey and on this journey we are presented with many paths. If we come upon a fork in the road we must decide which way to go. Let’s say we go left, along the way we are presented with scenery that looks wonderful at first sight, but further along we experience rain. We may continue on that path and then experience high winds. We continue further down the path only to find ourselves in a desert. Feeling beaten down and hopeless we decide that this is not the path to take and that we can’t reach our destination on this path. So we decide to go back to where we started and start over again. Starting over seems like a big failure.
However, when we start down this new path we have picked up some valuable information from the previous path. So, we start our new path armed with knowledge to face what may lie in wait on this unfamiliar new path. We now have an umbrella for the rain, we’ve learned to build a sturdy shelter for the high winds, and we carry water for when and if we end up a desert. Now, on this new path we may face other conditions that we are not ready for, but all is not loss because we have gotten closer to our destination.
After traveling several paths and gaining all this knowledge success is inevitable! You see, Failures are Lessons Learned on the Path to Greatness. The next time you experience what you perceive as a failure, remember that it is nothing more than a lesson in your book of knowledge on life’s journey.
