Failure is a blessing! Failure is full of as many opportunities as success. In fact, you cannot have one without the other. Some people are born with innate gifts to do certain things. But success in anything does not happen without failure. It does not happen without making mistakes and it does not happen without trying.
If you fail, never give up because FAIL means: First Attempt In Learning
And no is not always a negative. It may be opening you up to something you did not even know was a possibility.
If you get NO as an answer, remember NO means: Next Opportunity
If you are of the Christian faith and you believe we are all sinners. The word sin, in archery means: to miss the mark. So a sin helps you see that you that you are not perfect. And like in archery, sometimes you have an opportunity to shoot again. We are not always going to hit the bullseye in life. Rarely are we ever ‘dead on’ with anything. And that is OK. However, in archery, if you continue to sin, you lose. Isn’t that how it is in life? If you continue to make poor choices and make the same mistake repeatedly, you are not learning a thing! You continue to lose and are cheating yourself.
My point? Failure is a blessing! A blessing you say? Absolutely.
If you look at failure as a blessing, it takes the stress out of failure. There is no expectation to be perfect. You can allow yourself to be fallible. Chances are, once you lift that expectation from your subconscious, you will get it right more often than you will get it wrong. Failure means you get another opportunity to either try what you failed at, again. Or perhaps you are building a path to something better that you did not realize was on the path of your journey. All you can do is put your best effort forth each time you TRY! (TRY – Take Responsibility Yourself) Take ownership of your life. Take ownership of your tasks, your journey…whatever you do. In doing so, you are succeeding! You are living a true life. And who could ask for more than that?
