Failure Comes From…

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

Failure comes from pride, from arrogance.

Failure comes from ego, negative ego.

But success, on the other hand, comes from hard work,

from love, from empathy, from humility, from care, and from focus.

If you want to succeed in your own life,

you must reject pride. It is not good for you. It is a career killer.

When Is Enough Really Enough?

Henri- Frederic Amiel said, “There is no respect for others without humility in one’s self.” It takes humility to say “enough is really enough.” The question is, “When is enough really enough?”

Enough is enough when you can’t stand up for yourself anymore. Enough is enough when you can’t pursue your dreams, when you can’t pursue your goals. Enough is really enough when we can’t take care of our lives anymore. Enough is enough when no one seems to care about you. Enough is enough when you can’t sleep. Enough is enough when you can’t get anything done. Enough is enough when you are just existing. Enough is enough when you are bigger than what you are doing. Enough is enough when you are ready to move on to the next new thing.

But it takes real courage to face it. It takes courage to quit a job. It takes courage to start a new business. It takes courage to even ask your girl friend to marry you. It takes courage to do everything. Sometimes you just need to say enough is enough and be okay with your life. Because if you can’t say enough is enough, how can you focus on what is important to you? You can’t.

Before you say enough is enough, you must know why you are saying it. Let is be your own why, not other people’s whys. Love yourself enough to take a leap of faith. Love yourself enough to take risks. According to Cleo Wade, “Love yourself enough to say enough is enough when enough has become enough.” No matter where you are, what you are doing, love yourself enough to say, “enough is really enough.”
