At the end of the day, you are personally and solely responsible for your own success and your failure. You are personally responsible for all of your actions and consequences. And the sooner you realize that, you accept that, and integrate that into your work ethic, you will start being successful. As long as you blame others for the reason you aren’t where you want to be, you will always be a failure.
As unpopular as this is – we should rejoice in failure. We should understand that failures are a blessing. Why? Because we cannot grow as a human being, become wiser & more of a leader, & learn as a whole, without failure. So we can thank failure for getting us to where we are now.
When you face trials in your life, hardships, or suffering – you must know that your reaction is most important. How you respond will depend on where your life with further progress or regress.
Your growth as a human being comes from overcoming suffering and failures. That’s how we learn and grow.
Take the failures in your life and transmute them into a blessing in your life because you can then know that you are given an opportunity to grow & become better than before.
Thomas Edison was only able to invent the light-bulb because he adapted this mindset & rejoiced in his failure.
Steve Jobs was voted off of his own company. He was voted off of his own idea that he started and created. He could have given up, he could have said “forget it”, he could have been hateful, and wish all the harm on Apple,and he could have easily have just quit. But he didn’t. He took time alone to himself to mature in his mind and spirit. He took time alone to himself to reflect on his own past and experience to develop a wise mind. He understood the truth about how we should train our brain like the muscle it is.
The truth is there are two different groups of people:
The Majority and the Minority
The Majority takes the easy path in life and they settle for what’s given to them.
The Minority takes life by the reigns.
I will most definitely posting an entire blog soon on the Majority and the Minority.
The point I am trying to express to you is this.
Don’t settle. Don’t let your failures guide your feelings, emotions, and thoughts. Take your failures and mistakes and turn them into lessons of knowledge learned. A failure is not a setback. Because all that a failure is is: Us learning how to not do something.
