An Encounter With Failures
I wonder why there is a commonly occurring process “realization after something is lost”. At least I do not know anybody who has never encountered any failures or loss in life. But of course, reasons and grounds vary. How anyone deals with failures, is also different from others. And not everyone has the heart to encounter one’s failures.
In a moment of your life when you think that you can do this or that, it seems that you are confident enough about the thing you are going to achieve. Now checking the background, if there is no sacrifice, no hard work, no good purpose or future resolution then you are doomed. Firstly, you can never win and secondly, you fail obviously. And if you have a radical goal behind then there will be no dragging towards achievement just a smooth and willing journey.
If you are a person with your humanity turned off then you are easy to go because you do not care at all. Unfortunately, if you are a good human being then your failure remains with you like a never healing wound. That wound always remains in front of your eyes and becomes a reminder of your past activities. The suggestion here is not to turn off your humanity and feel nothing and repent nothing. On the contrary, encounter your failures because that is the best thing to move on with enough motivation and with a reminder about what you should do and what should be avoided.
“A failure is not always a mistake; it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.”
You feel it not just because you failed on your part but because you also failed at fulfilling expectations of your dear ones. But believe me, if you feel it then definitely your loved ones feeling it too. This is because of the connection made between human beings that they feel one another’s pain. The faith that your family, friends, loved ones put in you, gives you a strength to concur anything. It is just your own doubts about you because of your failure that makes you think that others underestimate you too. But no one can unless you let them.
No one notices you if you are silently going towards success but when your hardships make you fall on the way towards your success and you rise again then your story impresses others. And it is definitely not easy to lose something and then convince your mind to take a risk once again. Life is full of trials and tribulations. “No one guarantees your success but you.” When you burn yourself in the flames of your past failures, regrets, unfulfilled expectations, deadly efforts to achieve your goal once again. That is how you become something precious like gold.
“Failure is just the opportunity to begin again but this time more intelligently.”
Let your failures be a staircase in the way of your success instead of making them hurdles to block your way. Never run away from your failures but embrace them and never let others bully you about your past failures and shut their mouths by shinning and rising. This way your life will be a lot easier and happy.
