Success and failure are two sides of the same coin. Like stars can not shine without darkness, success cannot exist without facing failures few or more times.
However, even if there is so much positivity, encouragements and plenty of philosophical thoughts behind failures; when our mistakes stare us in the face; it is almost impossible to not to let negative feelings rule our mind. That is why it is important to realize that certain failures in life are really a blessing in disguise.
It requires immense strength to admit our faults and even greater strength to witness the light at the end of the tunnel. A failed try is an opportunity to return with a smarter approach. The idea of success itself comes through the process of learning to fix our errors; rather than embracing victory at the first attempt.
Our ego is the main culprit that prevents us from accepting our failures, since our self-esteem leads us to deny the fact that we were wrong, thus building up various excuses to lay the blame on others.
A failure may not be all exciting, but its’ consequences depend on how you interpret your experience. Failures are a part of life and the universal energies challenge us to decode the hidden message implied by them.
A failure helps us to be exposed to different opinions of others. It guides you to redefine the priorities in life and let you realize your true friends who bond with you through thick and thin. It develops ways to deal with different emotions and educate us with the lesson that we should not get too much attached to the plan, since even the “Unsinkable Titanic” also failed to complete its journey.
There are certain failures that are necessary to thrive in life.
- It takes a toxic relationship or a failed romance to appreciate when the soul mate comes along.
- An unsatisfactory career choice to discover the true passion in life
- A broke financial position to value a stable income
- Or simply an awful hairstyle to find out which fashion highlights the finest features of you.
Life is all about understanding and accepting the journey even it makes no sense at this moment. The tragedies we confront ultimately create the best version of ourself, since a smooth sea has never made a good sailor…
