Sometimes despite my best efforts I haven’t always succeeded.
Sometimes despite my best efforts plan A, B, and C have failed. So does that make failure final?
Sometimes I’ve learnt that when a course of action doesn’t work, I need to take the time to stop, review and reflect on what did and did not work.
Sometimes I have to ask my self why this particular action is important. Regroup and restart.
Sometimes at that moment, there just isn’t an answer to the question, but I can’t dwell on the perceived failure but see it as part of the ebb and flow of life. I think of the quote by Arthur Ashe
“If I were to say, ‘God, why me?’ about the bad things, then I should have said, ‘God, why me?’ about the good things that happened in my life.”
Is failure final? If you think you are then that’s what will happen. You can’t live without failing but the fear of failing can stop you living.
