Did you fail today? If you did, you have the opportunity to get better and you are closer to reaching your goals. If you didn't fail, then I am sorry because the opportunity to improve will be less likely. Failing leads to success. If you fail, you are not a bad person. If you fail, you are simply a human being. Failure occurs more often than success (unless you sit around and do nothing of importance and never take risks but then again, that is the ultimate failure. You fail when you don't try). When we attempt to improve ourselves and strive to achieve more than we have in the past, we will fail. Failure is only a waste if we don't choose to learn from that failure. Our attitude when we fail should be a combination of frustration mixed with motivation. We are frustrated (an emotion) for not achieving what we wanted to achieve but then we should be motivated (an action) by that frustration to learn and to grow and to try again. Failure should not be a combination of frustration and pity/demotivation/discouragement (lack of action). Those attitudes simply demonstrate our ego and our lack of humility that lead us to think that we are too good to ever fail. No one is capable of avoiding failure for eternity. No one is perfect. Get over yourself! Failure happens when we strive for success. How will you turn failure into success today? That is of most importance.
