There is no such thing as failure



Now I know we probably all know someone who has not passed an exam or whose marriage broke up or lost their job and then you may call them failures. Well, I don’t believe there is any such thing. Life is all about learning And everytime something goes wrong for us we can learn from it for the next time. Some people are slower learners than others but we can all learn in the end.

Who says you failed the test? It is just someone who decides that 40% is a pass. If it is accountancy then 60% is a pass. Or another career, another %. So that just proves it is just a judgement put there by someone else. We know when we don’t do our best and we know the reason: maybe it was fear or avoidance but we know.

Still, no event is a failure. All the experience we have in life forms who we are. That’s why we are all unique and so special. No one has walked our walk, not even if they walked beside us. So today think of those circumstances where you feel you thought you had failed and see them as experiences that led you to a place. And remember everything happens for a reason.
