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.

Learn To Work And Wait

Do what you are good at, not what you are bad at. Strength comes from doing what you are good at. Learn to work and wait for your time. Yes, waiting time is really hard, but its fruit is the best. Do not stop working. Do not stop waiting. Do not stop achieving. As Henry Wardsworth Longfellow once said, “Still achieving, still pursuing, learn to labor and to wait.” Never stop working. Never stop waiting. But do not just waste your time waiting for what you have not planted in the ground to grow. Waiting for what is not going to grow, waiting for what is not going to make your life better is a total waste of your precious time. Do not do that. If you want to achieve success, you must learn to work and to wait. Ray Palmer said, “We are waiting, master, waiting, Wayworn, pressed with toils and strife; Waiting, hoping, watching, praying, Till we reach the gate of life.”
