A Perspective on Failure

October 21, 2014

What if you regarded your failings + shortcomings as rungs on a ladder?

And instead of [mis]spending your time agonizing & lamenting over them, you simply learn their lesson…and then step up.

Step up and release how the rung was created, because you understand it has served its purpose.

In the end, the hurt. The pain. The weakness. The anxiety. The royally botched job you did. The trainwreck you started. The road rash on your face. The smorgasbord of crow on which you are feasting. None of these particulars matter.

You are now one step farther along your path, and your failure is actually mission accomplished.
