Why You Need Your Inner Strength

If things didn’t turn out the way you had hoped for, keep hoping, keep working. Be happy you are still here to try again.

Because every day is a new beginning.

A new day to try, to fall, to fail, to learn.

Do not let your disappointments weigh you down. That is what life is all about.

Do you expect life to fair to you? Don’t. Because it is not going to happen.

Life is not about wasting time. It is about using time. Instead of dwelling on your disappointments, on your failures, connect with yourself to find the inner strength, the inner joy, the inner happiness. Be patient with yourself.

Stop feeling bad about yourself. Instead of feeling bad about yourself, be happy that you are still alive to try again.

It Is Okay To Fail

According to Beverly Sills, “You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.” Yes, you are doomed if you don’t try. People don’t try because they are afraid of failure. They are afraid of other people’s opinions. They don’t want to fail. But if you have the courage to try, even if you fail, you are not a failure. You are a winner. Don’t be scared to try something new. Don’t be scared to get out of your comfort zone. Remember, no matter what it is, if you don’t try, you will never win. So if you want to win, if you want to join the top ten, you must try. You must cultivate the courage to try.

Albert Einstein said, “Failure is success in progress.” It is okay to fail. Just be patient with yourself. As Adel Bestavros once said, “… patience with self is hope…” The purpose of your life is to fail your way to success.

When you fail, be patient with yourself. Because life is a battle ground. You are here to strengthen your muscles. Rainer Maria Rilke said, “The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things.” If you want to win in your life, make failure your best friend, not your enemy.
