Monday: A Word or Two on Failure

Failure. A word associated with:
*heart break

The list can go on and on. However, I would like failure to be associated with

Success: understanding love and being able to give something meaningful to your community while living a life that you can be satisfied with. If you have this, you can consider yourself a success.

The enemy of success is pride.

Pride will rob you of your understanding of love and your ability to improve yourself. If you believe, pridefully, that you are without flaw in any given area, you will cease work to improve yourself. If you stop trying to improve, your success will dwindle away and vanish.

If you fail something, really and truly, a harsh blow will be taken to your pride. Being left without pride, you have the choice to
*press forward

Those that press forward will inevitably find themselves strengthened and ever-closer to success. If you allow your true failures in life to motivate you to change and strengthen yourself, then every failure will bring you to success.

Failure is not fun, enjoyable, pretty, cute, or any number of light-hearted words. It is, however, useful and necessary in becoming a success.

Do not wallow in your failures; instead, use them to elevate yourself. Learn to understand this, and then teach it to your children.

You will not regret it.
