“I have not failed. I’ve found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” -Thomas Edison
The power of failure can truly change our lives by powering through it and learning from each experience. The moment when you are out is the greatest times of growth. That is when you are able to analyze the problem or situation and learn from it. You see there is no such thing as failure, it is only LEARNING. Failure is not taking risks, staying stuck in your comfort zone, and not chasing your dreams.
Changing your perspective about it will help you be more optimistic. There is an opportunity behind each failure that comes along. It’s up to you what you will do about it. Will you soak in sorrow or build up resiliency. If you are still breathing and can put your feet on the ground in the morning then you have an opportunity. Life is all about being able to learn and adapt. Get back up and fight. It is only when you are down and stay down that you are truly out of it. Staying down is a choice and it is up to you what you will do about the situation.
There are plenty of fears that can hold you back from achieving success. Remember that you can either run from your fears or face them it is up to you. As Les Brown said, “Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” Living a life full of regret is no life to live and it takes courage to go out there and face your fears. In order to conquer your fears, you must step into them by taking action as it is the only way. Unfortunately, there are too many of us hiding behind the mask as underneath it lies all your fears, doubts, and insecurities. Starve your fears by feeding your faith. Be FEARLESS.
