One of my favorite authors Zig Ziglar says “Make failure your teacher, not your UNDERTAKER.” I love this quote because it reminds me of the transitions we have in life. Sometimes the road will be rough, often times events will not transpire the way we would like… but ultimately failures are merely stepping stones in the direction of success. Its ok to acknowledge the pain of disappointments and misfortune, but we cannot allow it to consume us.
When failure comes your way, accept it… mourn it … then ask two questions.
- Why did it happen
- What can I learn from it
Once you answer the questions, do something you enjoy to bring the mood up, then move on. Today I want to encourage someone…keep pushing…keep trying…keep working because in the end You Will Win!
