I’m the most hated in the world, in fact if I really did exist I’m not sure you would have me visit that’s how bad. What you don’t know is I’m the best friend you didn’t know about, you think me bad but I mean good for you. I’m your greatest ally and I’m key to your success.
My name is failure and after reading this write you’ll be grateful you did and remain forever indebted. I appear to be more known than success, I’m sure you didn’t know. No matter how much I’m hated, I’m more popular, ever heard there’s no such thing as bad publicity? Folks fret me, try to avoid me, and question themselves every time they have any unconventional ideas. But the simple truth is – no great success was ever achieved without me (failure). For instance – Robert F. Kennedy says “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” You can only succeed when you are not afraid of my existence or my showing up.
You don’t achieve not because I exist but because of the one called FEAR called (atychiphobia). He should be your biggest enemy, he’s the one that stops you. If you can do away with him then I’m no problem in fact I’m an ally.
Now here’s the real truth about me according to Denis Waitley – “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.” So far as you’re going to live, move or exist then you must encounter me. So I’ll say get awake and do something anyways whether you do something or not I’m here and can’t be wished away.
I HELP INSTILL THE LEARNING CULTURE:
You should understand that you can’t learn properly if you don’t fail at some time. While this can be debated, it stands very true. For most achievers today failure was key in helping them learn of better ways to grow and become better at what they have going on currently…
I BOOST YOUR COURAGE:
If eventually you are able to grow and get up from the dust you’ll get a whole new renewed energy to fight on. Once beaten you become no more scared of failing again. In fact once bitten you now know how to avoid being bitten again.
QUIT THE BLAME GAME:
now one of the problems people have is looking for whom to blame. Blame is a default setting in human that takes conscious effort to kill. Folks look for whom to blame and hence do not grow at all, because once someone is blamed the lesson cannot be learnt. Take the blame, accept responsibility and learn the first way to win.
“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill
PASSION SHOULD BE FOUND IN YOU:
Passion which is often birthed by love for your job or whatever you do makes you blind to failing. It only opens you up to new ways to succeed. Passion here can be likened to a flow of water that meets water but doesn’t stop but either creates a way through the rock or continues by the side.
Now that we are here. Sure to say I’m your greatest ally. “Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.” – C.S. Lewis. Learn well, fail better.
