I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Failure only happens when you quit trying

on June 20, 2013

Nobody likes to fail, but failure is inevitable since we are all human and we make mistakes.  Failure is a normal part of life and can be an excellent learning process.  Failures can actually motivate us to work harder towards our goals and make necessary changes in our lives.

Life will always test us and sometimes we will fail the test, but we should never give up on ourselves.  Nobody else can succeed for us and we need to learn how to fail successfully.   Most successful people have failed many times before they ever reached success, but they kept on trying.

When you fail, what action do you take.  Do you keep going and work harder or do you blame others, give up or make excuses?

Have you ever said to yourself?

  • It’s just too hard
  • I can’t succeed
  • It’s my husband’s/wife’s/friend’s fault
  • I grew up in an abusive home
  • I didn’t go to college
  • The government doesn’t help people like me
  • My boss holds me back
  • I don’t have the time or money

I’ve used some of these excuses and heard others from people I know.  The problem with excuses and blaming someone else is that you don’t get anywhere.  You stay stuck in the midst of your problems and don’t move ahead in life.

Failure is not a problem in life unless you dwell on it and stop growing.  Learn from your failures and try not to make the same mistake again.  There is a lesson to be learned in everything we do in life.#1 ribbon

Failure only happens when you quit trying.   Always remember that you must keep going in order to succeed.
