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.

Why You Must Believe In Your Talent

“At first I wasn’t sure that I had the talent, but I did know I had a fear of failure, and that fear compelled me to fight off anything that might abet it.”- Gordon Parks

It is easy to focus on what we are not good at. But you are good at something. Focus on what you are good at. Do what you are good at. Follow what you love. And do not do what you don’t like. Above all, you should never reduce yourself. Never!

You have the talent to do anything. You can do anything that you want to. You have what it takes to do it. Don’t discourage yourself. You must change your thinking. If you don’t change your thinking, you are not going to be able to change your life.

If you want your life to change, you must fill your mind with love thoughts, not fear thoughts. Fear is there, but do not let it stop you from achieving your dreams. The choice is always yours.
