Experiencing failure is inevitable...


people make mistakes all the time, 


but rarely are our mistakes or failures


catastrophic or fatal.

To be human is to make mistakes 



and fail at some things,



but life goes on.


We should never equate our worth


by the failures which 


may have occurred in our lives.


Failures are never a complete 


representation of who we are.

Walt Disney was fired 


by a newspaper editor because he... 



"Lacked imagination 



and had no good ideas."

Sometimes...


failure is where the majic is made.

Failure can press us


and give us greater determination,


strength, and insight.

Our failures can lead to 


greater discoveries!

The failure of the caterpillar


is the birth of the butterfly.


The death of the seed


is the prelude to its resurrection.


Failure has its upside.

Our failures can take us places


that we that we would not have seen


or experienced otherwise. 

 

Through our failures


we can learn more than ever 


about our strengths,


talents, and resolve.

Our failures can be 


accidental realizations


that give us new perspectives


 and greater vision.

Our failures can be the impetus...


the foundation for greater successes.

Embracing possible failure is key


to taking on a variety of challenges.

Our failures can catapult us


to new heights!

Our highest hopes are often delayed or failures.


Most delays and failures prepare us 


for bigger and better things.


The “Negative” phases of failure


can actually perform a constructive function.


Failure can force us to accept our loss


and prepare us for the task of rebuilding,


and this rebuilding can yield beautiful results.


Our failures may contain in its debris 


all that we need in order to perform 


our true purpose in life.

It's not success or failure...


it's success and failure


that leads us to genuine innovation.

Most success stories have a shared foundation


 in not succeeding in what they first attempted.


Most success stories share many botched first attempts


 and errors which may have been


the key ingredient needed to give birth 


to higher revelations and possibilities. 


Failure is often the rock bottom foundation


that spurs us to real success.


Some of the world's most successful people 


experienced massive failure before succeeding. 



Many saw failure as an important stepping stone.

 

Just look at the lives of those who,


through hard work, guts, and perseverance


are now renowned for their achievements.

We must embrace failure as a necessary step


to unprecedented success.


When Sidney Poitier first auditioned 


for the American Negro Theater


he flubbed his lines and spoke in a heavy Caribbean accent


which made the director angrily tell him to 


stop wasting his time.

A young Henry Ford ruined his reputation


with a couple of failed automobile businesses.

When we take a closer look at the great achievers,


 throughout history,


we will notice that they were able to see the lessons 


of the experience and continue to push forward.

The capacity to err is crucial to human cognition.


To achieve any worthy goal, 


we must take risks. 

We may fail incredibly, 


or we may succeed incredibly, 


but to achieve our personal best,


to reach unparalleled heights,


 to make the impossible possible...


we must not fear failure.

There is no honest and true work,


with constant and sincere purpose,


that ever really fails.

Noble efforts will make seeming failures,


but trifles.
