“Never walk away from failure. On the contrary, study it carefully and imaginatively for its hidden assets.” – Michael Korda
Do you allow your failures to sadden you? Do you ever walk away from a situation that didn’t work out the way you planned it and despair? Do you say to yourself, “I’ll never attempt that again?” Are you someone who is “once bitten twice shy?”
The reason we fail on the perfect path of life that we are traveling on, is so that we can become wise; so that we can grow and be helpful to others when they face similar situations. In this way the human-race progresses from one generation to another.
I think it was Oscar Wilde who said “If at first you don’t succeed try, try again. But when you’ve tried and tried again give up, you don’t need to become silly about it!” So, learn your lessons, your life lessons, but don’t become obsessed with always winning in the game of life.
Maybe in the past you’ve walked away from failure? Your failures have defined you as a quitter and we all know “Winners never quit, and quitters never win!” So now it’s time to welcome life’s challenges and for you to become someone who wants life to reveal to them, the hidden assets that studying failure will give to you?
