Sitting At The Table With Failure

We’ve heard it all before. We hear it all the time. “I succeeded because I failed. ”

Michael Jordan  – “I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Joyce Meyer – “failing at a thing doesn’t make you a failure.”

Bill Gates- “It’s fine to celebrate success but its more important to head the lessons of failure.”

So we’re inspired. We’re focused on the possibility of what lies ahead for us. Because if their success came from failure, so can ours. But there’s something more to it than just failure leading to success. And really, it’s not the failure that brought them success. It’s their strength. Their drive. Their positive attitude. Passion. Motivation. Inspiration. It’s what they bring to the table that failure decided to sit at. It’s the fact that they saw failure as an irrelevant force. It’s that they kept smiling. Hoping. Moving forward. So really, failure doesn’t bring success. YOU bring success. And if you can be strong enough to know that failure is an irrelevant force, well, then the possibilities might just be absolutely endless for you. __a.c.
