Failure

Failure! I failed! I messed up! No excuses, no explanations, it’s me right here, right now owning my mess. There is no one to blame. It is, what it is. Now where do I go from here? Quitting isn’t an option. So the only choice I have is to pick myself up, dust myself off, forgive myself, and keep moving forward.

I have focused so much on winning, that I forgot that there is much grace and beauty hidden in failure. Winners are not born the moment they win, they are born the moment they get knock down, and they make the choice to get up. Failure builds character and integrity. I have learned more from failure than I ever learned from succeeding. 

I used to think that failure meant the end, but I now know that failure is the beginning. What stops most people from pursuing their dreams is the fear of failure. I have failed so much, failure doesn’t bother me, so now I am free to be me. I am free to try new things, I am free to experience all the wonders of life. If I try something new and I fail, so what, it won’t be the first time, and it definitely won’t be the last time.
