Failure is only able to wield any power when we accept it as an end point – the time when we pack up our dreams and goals because we have convinced ourselves that they are ‘unrealistic’.
Failure is just a word, one we have invented to describe a situation when we experience a level of resistance. If we get caught in a traffic jam or we get a puncture, we don’t normally class that as a failure? We would look at a map and adjust the route or stop the car and change the tyre.
A failure isn’t a failure until we accept it as such. In truth, failure is a helpful guide that tests the strength of our desire and enables us to get back on track.
