I Have Failed Before
Have you failed before and wished the earth could open up and swallow you?
Failure is a word used to define a stage. It is not
It is a judgement about an event. It can happen at any stage in your life, to you and to any one you know. I believe failure is a benevolent teacher who, if listened to appropriately, will get you back on track.
Failure strips away your veneer of pretence, leaving you exposed. It reintroduces you to your humanity. And it forces you to reassess your place in the universe.
Failure makes you realise you will not live forever. Every setback you experience is a 'little death' that makes you wonder where the balance is in your life. Even if this wondering is done 'sotto voce'.
Failure is a turning point that forces you to examine your life. And, it is only then that you can be open to change.

The very thing that seems to render you powerless can, if viewed rightly bestow an inner power that no one can take away.
What am I asking you to make out of this?
