A Failure is not a cul-de-sac

Dear readers,

How many times have we tried to get out from the sheer of failure?
How many of us have figuring ways out to come to grips with reality?
How many falls have we taken to stand up once again?

It is an ugly truth that throughout our magnificent life, in order to achieve our goals, dreams, etc, it is not a smooth relaxing beach that is offered, it is a deadly rocky mountain instead. Once you decide to put a bet on it, you’re on the game. By taking that chance, a pocket full of risks is also bundled with the package. And with risks, comes along the risk of failure. It’s part of the deal, take it or leave it.

One useful tip : never climb up a mountain without a real serious preparation.
One useful hint : you’ll never know what kind of surprises laid on your mountain.

Your mountain, your battle. It’s a private battlefield. Well yeah, I called it a battlefield since there is only one result, either you’ll come out alive or you’ll be dead in the battle, because there will be no turning back. Don’t get too afraid with it, you’ve known the rules, you just need to play better than anyone else in your battle. An invincible determination and a made-up mind are the greatest traits a person should have inside. One determined person can make a significant difference. Your determination shall help you to find a way to the top of your mountain.

There is no guarantee with your safety, it’s all dangerous and risky. There’s always going to be sharp cliffs to climb, small or big rocks that have to be moved, wild creatures that tried to bring you down, etc, whatever it is, never, never, never give in!

Maybe you are facing a giant rock in front of you now, it is not a dead-end street, go find a detour to move on. Or maybe you are now injured and bleeding, it is painful but it will not deteriorate your qualities. It won’t make you dead, unless you let satan take you straight to hell. Or maybe you are taking a break to regain your strength, but there are some dumb people underestimate you and tell you that you are no better than them. Hey, listen to me, just because you are stopping for a while, it doesn’t mean that you are weak. It doesn’t matter who is laughing over who now, the important thing is who is going to laugh at the end of the battle. No one will ever succeed to bring you down, not under your consent.

Don’t be discouraged by a failure. It could be your chance to learn a new strategy to fight better than those who doesn’t get one. Every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid. There is an old saying said that ‘those who never fail, are the ones who never tried.’ It is better to dare a huge things, to get several failures, and finally receive a glorious triumph; rather than to rank with those poor people who neither enjoy nor suffer much, who know nothing about victory or defeat, and moreover…the every story behind it.

Be proud that you are brave enough to get into a fight. Your strength does not come from physical capacity, but from your made-up mind to go for it. Your succeed is not determined by how fast you can get into the top of the mountain, but by how many times you get up every time you fall, by how many positive lessons you can learned from your journey. Success is not measured by what you accomplish but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.

“It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs and comes short again and again;
who knows great enthusiasms,the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly
so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”
(Theodore Roosevelt)

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ Don’t hesitate, don’t surrender now.

A little bit more. You are strong enough. 🙂

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.

Carpe diem!
