“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.”
- Johnny Cash
The second point that needs to be stated is that Failure is not the opposite of Success. In fact, Failure is one of the key ingredients when it comes to becoming Successful.
Why is that, you ask?
Because, failure is an incredible teacher. People who learn their lessons from mistakes and setbacks grow substantially in knowledge and skill.
People who grow through life's difficulties also gain a knowing that they can face and embrace challenges...AND come out the other side.
They also gain a sense of strength and knowing that they have the ability within them, to fight the next difficulty…and Win!
Because, believe it or not, success doesn’t just happen!
Study any self-made Successful person and you will notice a common theme among them.
They don’t just give up due to a set back or a so-called Failure. In fact, Successful individuals will endure multiple mistakes, set-backs and frustrations in order to reach their Goals.
There are No Shortcuts!
If you want to Succeed where others Fail, you have to…
Step over Failure…
Work through Failure...
Walk around Failure…
...and keep going
“Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.”
- Denis Waitley
Failure is Not Final
On your Journey toward your Goals you will be in full contact with Failure.
When we stop before we reach our goal/goals we often feel defeated. When we see failure as a guide, we can grow from the experience. Difficulties are a great time for reflection.
Success is possible for anyone who is willing to take that difficult journey to get it!
There are many who want Success, but few who are willing to go through Failure to get it…
How hard and how long are you willing to fight for what you desire?
SuccessIS around the corner…But, you must Keep Going!
“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”
- Robert F. Kennedy
