To live your life really well is to expect failures. Because you can’t live your life without failing at something. You will. Failure is not about you; it is about growth. It is about life. It is about moving forward in life.

There is no defeat except from within…”- Elbert Green Hubbard

Failures are part of our lives. We can’t grow without them. When you fail at something you love, when you fail at something you don’t like, you must be careful how you interpret your failures. Don’t call yourself a failure. Don’t call yourself a loser. Because you are not. You are a winner. You are growing. The best way to approach your failures is to learn from them. Instead of calling yourself a loser, you can take action to change your situation. Use your power to move your life forward. Don’t let failure stop you from creating your life. Don’t doubt yourself. Believe that you have the power to do anything you set out to do. It is withing your power. You can achieve your dreams, if you believe in yourself.

There is no failure except in no longer trying.”– Elbert Green Hubbard

It is from your failures that you will learn more about your life. It is from your failures that you will learn more about how to succeed. It is from your failures that you will learn more about how to handle projects. You can learn a lot from your failures if you look at them differently. Failure is a learning time. It is a growing time. So, if you want to grow in your life, you must keep failing forward. In the words of Elbert Green Hubbard, “There is no failure except in no longer trying.” If you are going to do great things in your life, if you are going to succeed in your life, in your business, in your relationships, you must keep trying. You must never give up!

How To Take Responsibility For Your Life

“If it’s never our faults, we can’t take responsibility for it. If we can’t take responsibility for it, we’ll always be its victim.”- Richard Bach

Who is responsible for your life? Who is responsible for your happiness? Who is responsible for your growth and development? Who is responsible for your peace of mind? Who is responsible for healing your soul? Who is responsible for changing your life? Who is responsible for moving you forward? Who?

If you are honest with yourself, the question is not hard to answer. It is very simple. It is YOU. You are responsible for your life. Stop waiting for people to fix you. No one is responsible for your life. You are in charge of your life. You are the boss. You are in command. Don’t wait for your brother or your sister to fix you. You have what it takes to help yourself get better. You know what it takes to move your life forward. If you don’t know, ask. Don’t shut up. If you don’t ask, you won’t get. If you ask, you will get.

You are responsible for asking for what you want. If you don’t take responsibility for asking for what you want, no one will ask for you. No one. Not even your best friend. Aldous Huxley said, “We were left to go our way and take responsibility for our own affairs.” If you really mean business, you must take care of your own affairs.

We are here to depend on ourselves. We are not here to depend on anyone. It is okay to ask for help, but don’t depend on anyone. Depend on yourself. Do your own work. Grow your own garden. Live your own life. Don’t imitate anyone. Don’t compare yourself to others. Don’t compare your achievements with others. Your achievements are your achievements. Enjoy them.

If you don’t have the courage to take responsibility for your failure, you will be its victim. If you can’t look your fear in the face, you will be its victim. If you don’t want to be a victim, you must take responsibility for your life. There are no easy ways to live a better life. There are no easy ways to change your life. There are no easy ways to become who you want to be. The only way is to do your work. If you want to succeed in your life, you must do your own work. Are you ready to work? Are you ready to do whatever it takes to succeed?
