We have forty million reasons for failure, but not a single excuse. – Rudyard Kipling
What would happen to your life if you stopped making excuses and just reinterpreted “failures” as “purposeful endeavors”, necessary on your pathway to success? The only failure in life that is a true failure is the failure of not being true to yourself. There is no excuse for failure, we must learn to let go of our fear of being wrong and our fear of being insufficient, and instead continue to live as creatively and purposefully as possible.
People that are successful have a natural curiosity about them; successful people are curious about their lives and about life around them. Engage your creativity and curiosity, and start looking forward to defining your “failing” moments in life as an inevitable part of growth instead of as something to be internalized and personalized. It is in our so-called failures and moments of being wrong that we learn the most about ourselves and, in turn, we move forward along our journey to success.
Live a creative life: be different from everyone else. Be yourself and explore the wonderful things that you learn about yourself from your periodic set-backs. Most importantly, never stop believing in yourself and let go of your fear of not being good enough.
