The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was a fantastic array of colors as the sky lit up and changed the world into a scene from an oil painting. The moments were spectacular, and the result was even more so.
I know this will be hard to believe, but we learn more from failure than from success. I know many will think this does not follow, but there is no success without failure, or at least very rarely. In our failures we find the pathway to success.
I thought about this quite a bit as I considered how fantastic life is. Life is full of amazing successes, and often difficult failures but each failure opens another door to get to success. Each failure can open our minds to more possibilities and in doing so, forge a path that can give us more.
I have failed a lot. I have succeeded a lot too. Each time I fail I look at the whole and determine if there is a better path. Perhaps one that will work, give me more, or team me more. I did not always see it this way, but in the 20s I realized that my failures were showing me a way, including my largest failure at the end of high school. With that in mind I think life is a successful series of failures, and I am fnding my way there each day.
How about you? Do you embrace failure and learn from it? Do you avoid failure and taunt success? I would like to think the world can show us a way if we only pay attention, I hope you see that.
So as the sun sets on another day, I wish you a successful set of failures that will open you mind, heart, and life to a better way. I hope you find your path and in the process change the world even if it is just a little bit. You are the key to it all, and I know you can succeed, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and happy failure….
