As human beings we naturally get sad and disappointed anytime something doesn’t work the way we want it to or when we constantly fail at what we are doing. Negative thoughts spur our mind and the sadness affects our mental capability as well as our way of life and deteriorates our self esteem.
The actual failure is however in not understanding the deepness in what just happened. We fail in looking at the brighter side, we fail in dealing with situations in a positive way.
”Yes it didn’t work out, but this is what I learnt!! Next time I’ll definitely improve my methods and I’ll get it right!”. Adopting that thought is the key to not getting all stressed up and depressed but rather give you that hype of working better, more efficiently and being more productive in your next endeavour.
In 1979 Thomas Edison invented the light bulb and our world has been brighter ever since but did you know he ‘failed’ 1000 times before getting it right?! Now imagine if he accepted defeat at the very first failure or he gave up after the 1000th attempt not knowing the next one would be it! After every attempt he went forward with the next because of his positive thinking of learning from experience and to keep going until you meet your goal and he did!
Not all experiences are going to be golden, some will hit you as hard as a rock. It is your perception towards it that will give you the strength and perseverance to move on and prove a purpose. A purpose that you aimed to achieve by overcoming any obstacle as if that was nothing but a pit stop for learning. Keep challenging yourself, in order to expose your full potential, again and again.
All those ‘failures’ thus result in nothing but tonnes of happiness at the end of the track; happiness in abundance and beyond what was expected or intended. Happiness in terms of wisdom, growth, health, knowledge and wealth…
