If You Want To Succeed, You Have To Fail

If you want to succeed, you have to fail.
Now that may sound contradictory,
But take a minute to really understand what it means.
It doesn’t mean you should plan to fail.
It doesn’t mean you should live your life waiting to fail.
What it means is that you need to accept that failure is a part of life.
“Why are you being so negative?” – You ask?
I’m not.
In fact, one of my favorite quotes of all time, is from the movie Apollo 13,
“Failure is not an option.”
Well then why should we accept failure? Again, you accept that at some point, it will happen,
Most likely more than once,
But when it does happen,
You don’t accept it as the end.
And that is the key.
There are two ways you can respond to failure.
And they are very different.
You can accept failure, give up and say “There’s nothing else I can do.”
Or you can accept failure, don’t give up and say, “I will do everything I can to make sure this NEVER happens again.”
There are certain things in Life that are out of your control,
But everything happens for a reason.
If you never tasted the bitterness of failure,
How could you ever recognize the sweetness of success?
Failure makes you stronger.
Failure pushes you harder.
Failure separates those who are in it for the love of it,
From those who are in it for the money.
We learn how to rise in success, only after falling from failure.
If you still think this is negative,
Well then, you missed the point.
If you want to succeed, you have to fail.

Do what you gotta do.
Live Life Every Day.
