Turning Failure into Success
Copyright 2012 Carol James, Founder of InspiredLiving.com
The way I see it, we are always getting it right, even when it appears
that we've made a mistake, goofed things up or failed, for everything
we do leads to greater understanding and wisdom. We can't get it wrong.
There is no should, shouldn't, can't, have to, need to or must, because
life is not a test, no one is keeping score, we are not being graded
and no one but ourselves is our ultimate judge.
I view failure more as a detour, just like taking a path that led to
a place different from where I was wanting to go, but along the way I
gained useful information to help me find a path more aligned with my
intended destination. Like going to an ice cream store and buying a new
flavor, then after taking a few bites realizing that I don't really like
that flavor. I never would have known that I didn't like it until after
I tried it, and now I don't have to eat it ever again, but what about
all the great ice cream flavors I've discovered because I allowed myself
to try something new and unknown?
So don't be afraid of making mistakes or failing, because sometimes
those experiences offer more understanding and wisdom than can ever be
found in success.
