”Failure Is An Opportunity To Learn And Grow.”

 

84e6bd66be8aabe7faf9baebd6641071

”Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”

I am not sure who said the original quote “failure is not a person, it’s an event”. Sometimes, if we are honest, we can find fault in our plan, in our strategy, or maybe our commitment. Other times, we may have given absolutely everything, left it all on the field so-to-speak, and yet we still somehow managed to come up short. Either way, failure usually results in us asking one or both of these questions:

What is wrong with me?

What have I done to deserve this?

Have you ever asked yourself either one of those questions? I know I have, Of course, you have and you are not alone (if you answered No, we need to check you for alien DNA).

 

Being introspective is just part of being human. We are hardwired to question. When we fail, it is natural to wonder why. The problem arises not in asking why we failed; it’s in letting the reason for the failure define who we are or letting it create a fear that keeps us from trying again.

quotes-17

 

It’s not about avoiding failure. It’s about taking healthy ways to view, dissect, and learn from failure. Failure, just like every other obstacle in life, is another opportunity for you to grow. The greatest blessings in my life come from the treasure that God used in my trash or, in other words, the greatest blessings came from my greatest mistakes.

''Life Is A Beautiful Struggle''

”Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

If you think you’re wandering alone trying to raise your voice so everybody can hear you roaring, you’re damn wrong. In fact, you are surrounded by people who fight bloody combats in their minds between success and failure.

Whoever told you that life and success come easily is either pleasing you, or talk nonsense. Life is a balance of good and bad times along with picking out the best lessons out of both experiences. The theory of yin-yang shows life as one simple equation.

However, our main goal is to see ourselves happy being worth in a community. Unconsciously we want to be appreciated for what we do. It’s best to find your talent and spread it around the world. However easy it may sound, the previous sentence determines a lifespan of your whole life!

In the next top 10 signs that you’re succeeding in life, you will surely find at least couple of emotions with whom you fight the harsh battle.

”The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.”

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

why-is-life-such-a-constant-struggle1. You are determined more than ever.

The determination is the first thing you do consciously that will take you directly to your wishes. The determination means that you already have a clear goal and willing to sacrifice everything to grab that goal with both hands.

Emotions will rush through you to go back to the old habits. They will try to tuck in every negative thought to cut you off from your vision. Determination will determine (as the word says itself) that you will firmly stick to your future plan no matter the cost of the bill you have to pay.

If you ever feel this way, you are doing it right. Don’t flow away to your doubts for short-term satisfaction. GO FOR THE LONG RUN.

”Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.”

Oprah Winfrey

2. You feel like breaking down.

At the exact moment when you feel like the world falls down on you is the moment you have to decide two things: go down with it or elevate stronger than ever.

If you read books about self-determination, watch seminars and listen to audiobooks you will notice that all the knowledge is used to encourage us through harsh times – the ones where the world falls down on us. They remind us to see the beauty behind the thorns on the way.

Life is one big test where we have to see through all perspectives. The price we have to pay not to blur our dreams when encountering the weight of the world on our shoulders.

Know that giving up is going to take everything you wanted away (depending on your struggle.) So combine your energy and explode it out to raise yourself.

”Nothing is given to a man on earth – struggle is built into the nature of life, and conflict is possible – the hero is the man who lets no obstacle prevent him from pursuing the values he has chosen.

Andrew Bernstein

3. You firmly want to give up.

Following the sign of the hard struggle when you feel like breaking down, the mental state to give up will invade your mind. That’s really a sign that you are doing the right thing. I would state it as finding comfort in the discomfort.

Have in mind that you are encountering thousands of negative energies, angry drivers, wireless signals, toxic air, and what so not.

Rely on the side that you’ve been brave enough to get to this exact point after all the problems and circumstances, so don’t give up when you’re one step ahead of seeing the sun!

”The philosophy of life is this: Life is not a struggle, not a tension… Life is bliss. It is eternal wisdom, eternal existence.”

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

4. You choose to avoid night-out overwork.

pexels-photo-2050001

Everyone needs to hang out from time to time. We exchange thoughts, enjoy the time with our buddies, and have a fun time. But sometimes night-out needs to be avoided if we have crucial work to finish that might take us closer to the vision. And don’t get me wrong. I am no workaholic too.

We need to see from the perspective that we earn night-outs without having a hesitation in unfinished business at home (or work.) When we have all things done for that particular time, we can enjoy as much as we can, but not before that.

Free time needs to be earned through previous successful days of work. Believe me; the best memories are made when you have nothing left behind to occupy your mind.

”Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.”

Swami Vivekananda

5. You are less with wrong people.

First, I am no introvert, but quite the opposite. When I was having a tough, lonely period in my life I acknowledged the brightest lessons.

In those times you reveal your true friends and people who care about you the most.

While being lonely may seem like a dark period and something might be wrong with us, that period of our life is the enlightening. You are left alone with your experience to form your future.

Also, do not avoid people to reveal yourself, but when it comes to your future plans, take criticism seriously, but not personally. That’s what most people do. They criticize ideas and visions. You mustn’t let that touch yours.

”Ours is one continued struggle against degradation sought to be inflicted upon us by the European, who desire to degrade us to the level of the raw Kaffir, whose occupation is hunting and whose sole ambition is to collect a certain number of cattle to buy a wife with, and then pass his life in indolence and nakedness.”

Mahatma Gandhi

6. You are occupied with your success.

I think when being asked for occupation, we should answer with “success.” Emotions play with our mind when we determine to succeed in life. As I previously mentioned, we all have bad habits that have to be removed. That’s not easy at all.

Success should make us happy. It shouldn’t mean that “success” is endless money and one-mile houses. It means finishing consecutive small tasks every day. The big picture will come at the right time. Like a painter crafts his masterpiece. Piece by piece, Leonardo da Vinci made Mona Lisa.

If you are occupied with executing small tasks every day, you are walking the right, unique, authentic way of yours.

”Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.

Martin Luther King, Jr.”

7. You exchange life for something only you see.

First off, you sacrifice life with everything you do daily. You literally give up (something important and most valued) for the sake of your considerations. You exchange life for the picture in your head of rightfulness.

You see, when we imagine things EVERY DAY, we attract things we imagine. So when it comes to sacrificing we better do it for our perfect picture in our heads.

And no, you are giving up life for nothing. You switch every second and hand out struggle to your vision. The most interesting, frightening and motivational part is that you don’t know whether you will make it. But as we know, it’s all about perspective.

”The power of a person derives not from the office he occupies but from a clear sense of direction and aspiration and from a willingness to struggle for his ways and beliefs.”

Ariel Sharon

travel-quote-dare-to-live-your-life-482x7208. You know your goal as soon as you wake up.

Waking up may be the hardest part of the day for some people, but not for those who have the clear concise vision (of at least) how they should spend their day to be closer to a better tomorrow.

Every one of us can easily create a positive and creative way of thinking in a short period of time. If that time is in the morning, there’s a probability that the whole day will be spending positively.

Since the body falls asleep, “the machine” stops and rests until the morning. After that, the machine needs to be fed with an instant motivation to drive us around daily problems and obstacles on the road.

Imagine life differently. Find more comparisons, maybe funnier ones. You mustn’t look things as real as they are. The mind can expand as long as you’re willing to. Feed your mind with beauty in the morning.

”All of us, in a sense, struggle continuously all the time, because we never get what we want. The important thing which I’ve really learned is how do you not give up because you never succeed in the first attempt.”

Mukesh Ambani

life-is-a-struggle

9. You are struggling with every success.

When you walk the hard road, know that millions of people went through it. They even walked uglier roads to grasp success.

As billions of people passed the car tests and driving lessons, success means life is putting you to a test to see if you’re hard enough to endure it.

My thoughts were that you are not alone. If you were in somebody else’s shoes, you will see that your road is “piece of cake” according to theirs.

Know that people struggle through life to get things worth having.

“Nothing worth having comes easy.”

Life has to mean only in the struggle. Triumph or defeat is in the hands of the Gods. So let us celebrate the struggle!

Stevie Wonder

10. You are not alone.

Whoever reads this, you are not alone. You interact with the world. You attract the things you imagine. You are feeling exactly as you are now because of circumstances you made or attracted. Sometimes (even though very rarely) we are a victim of circumstance, but you have everything you need to change that.

It’s never too late to change your community, your life, your world. If you think you’re on the right foot, the world will get in accordance with it. If you want to change it’s never too late, either at an 8 or 98.

If you still think you’re not succeeding in life, one of the wealthiest people on earth succeeded when they taught they are lost in life.

''A Better Step For A Better Life''

You cannot change the circumstances. But you can get stronger, wiser, better.

Life is about constant, predictable patterns of change, and the only constant factor will be our feelings and attitudes toward life. We as human beings have the power of attitude and that attitude determines the choice, and choice determines results. All that we are and all that we can become has indeed been left to us to decide and interpret through our attitude and choices.

Life is like the changing seasons—you cannot change the seasons, but you can change yourself. So the first major lesson in life to learn is how to handle the winters. They come regularly, right after autumn. Some are long, some are short, some are difficult, some are easy, but they always come right after autumn. That is never going to change.

There are all kinds of winters: the “winter” when you can’t figure it out, the “winter” when everything seems to go awry. There are economic winters, social winters, and personal winters.

Wintertime can bring disappointment, and disappointment is common to all of us. So you must learn how to handle the winters. You must learn how to handle difficulty; it always comes after opportunity. That is never going to change.

The big question is what to do about winters. You can’t get rid of January simply by tearing it off the calendar. But here is what you can do: You can get stronger; you can get wiser; you can get better. Remember that trio of words: stronger, wiser, better. The winters won’t change, but you can.

Before I understood this, I used to wish for summer when it was winter. When things were difficult, I wished they were easy. I didn’t know any better. Then my mentor gave me the answer from a part of his unique philosophy when he said, “Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for fewer problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom.”

''DOWN-TO-EARTH PEOPLE''

I think the biggest misconception about me is people really don’t know who I really am. They see the party side of me, they see the crazy side of me. But I also have a laid-back side. You know, I’m chill, down to earth. If you want to grab a cup of coffee and just talk about life, I can do that.

We all think of ourselves as pretty authentic, striving to be the best possible versions of ourselves that we can. Each day we become stronger, wiser, more grounded, more loving and confident. It’s not easy being an authentic person and it takes courage to stand up for yourself and for your own wants and needs. To follow your inner voice and hearts desires can be an uphill battle. Let alone the societal and religious dogmas that have been thrust upon us. After working our way through we still, are faced with the challenge of finding out for ourselves what we truly would like to get out of this world while we’re here.

It’s a horrible idea that God, this paragon of wisdom and knowledge, power, couldn’t think of a better way to forgive us our sins than to come down to Earth in his alter ego as his son and have himself hideously tortured and executed so that he could forgive himself.

Authentic people, have mastered these traits and stay true to their hearts– no matter how far off the beaten trail it may lead.

*.They think before they speak

Authentic people are not run by their emotions and they know how to assess a situation before giving their input.

* They speak for what is right; not for what is popular

Standing up for what is right isn’t always easy to do, especially when faced by peers and elders who think differently. It takes confidence and courage to stand firm in the face of scrutiny.

Authentic people aren’t captivated by mainstream hype, the next it girl or guy or the latest buzz in the media. They yearn for deep and meaningful conversation. They want to explore your mind, your heart, and your soul.

* They don’t pay attention to gossip or drama

It is said that gossip stops upon meeting wise ears, and gossip always stops with an authentic person.

They don’t take kindly to those who choose to speak harshly of other behinds their backs and make a non-judgmental note of the “witch that warned them” Quite often you will find the words turned back around on you when attempting to spread gossip, to an authentic person.

* They are comfortable being alone

Authentic people are comfortable alone because they are in a position of love and acceptance of themselves, otherwise being alone would turn into being lonely and it never does.

* They value life as an experience rather than a collection of goods.

Authentic people value each and every moment and experience and understand that the best things in life can’t be bought or sold.

Life to them is about living, caring, loving and giving, not having, taking, asking and expecting.

*They appear as an introvert but are very outgoing

Authentic people highly regard time alone to recharge and rewire. They are often mistaken for a recluse, but when exposed to a social gathering they can be very outgoing and friendly. Too much time in social circles will become draining on them, and will likely be one of the first to ditch off early for a nice relaxing evening at home.

*They truly wish for the success of others

Authentic people do not secretly wish for others to fail or become jealous for the successes of those around them. They genuinely like to see people happy and healthy, living and loving their lives.

* They trust their gut and listen to their instincts

Authentic people know how to listen to themselves and can appreciate the moments where they didn’t as another opportunity to trust themselves more.

*They follow their heart

Authentic people follow their hearts no matter how far, how crazy and how much it may hurt.

They understand that their hearts are their very best teacher and respect its wise wishes.

* They stand out from the crowd

Authentic people do not search out for popularity, they stand out for their own uniqueness. No asking, no expecting it just happens. When you live true to yourself, you become eccentric, eclectic and exuberant it just happens!

* They love themselves first

Authentic people know that there is no way to be a beacon of light or an inspiration to others unless they can lead by example. In order to love others and accept each other no matter, what we must first love and accept ourselves. It is the only way.

* They do things their own way

Authentic people don’t care how it is supposed to be done, the joy of living is learning, and learning in our own unique ways.

* They see the value in life

All life has value, none more than another, from the tiniest insect to the largest mammal, we are here on this earth together and all life has to mean.

* They see whats under the surface

Authentic people don’t focus on whats on the surface, and they prefer to see whats hidden underneath. They quite often don’t take words at face value, and they can hear the emotions behind the words being spoken. This is what they listen to.

* They don’t take it personally

Authentic people know that when someone is rude, critical or downright hurtful that it has more to do with the other person than it does about them. Authentic people always empathize with others and show a sense of understanding, no matter the words spoken.

*They are decisive, cool and collected

Authentic people always have a plan, a goal, and an aspiration even if its to just go with the flow.

* They make their own path

Authentic people want to do what has never been done, see what has never been seen and reach where no one would have ever thought possible. Sometimes, they secretly enjoy proving to you that it CAN be done.

*They are never fake

An authentic person will never tell you what you want to hear, just because you want to hear it. They will empathize with you and give you the ugly truth when you are ready for it.

*They are always grateful

They know that the key to abundance is being in a state of acceptance. The more than anyone expects things, the less can be accepted.

*They see the world from a higher perspective

When you live true to yourself, with love, hope, strength, courage, and commitment you can’t help but view the world from a more perceptive view. You have built your mountain strong and firm and you can’t wait to help everyone else rise to the top.

The stars of eternal truth and right have always shone in the firmament of human understanding. The process of bringing them down to earth, remolding them into practical forms, imbuing them with vitality, and then making use of them, has been a long one.
