I read the passage below today and it got me to thinking.
Not only on my perception and how it has continually changed over time (which is a good thing in my opinion).
But what failure really is.
When we set goals or take on a challenge;
Our intent should be, that we accomplish, win, succeed.
By reaching that goal or overcoming the challenge.
Many times however we don’t.
Those times we must take ownership for the failure.
Even if there were factors outside our control.
“Failure is something I accomplish; it doesn’t just happen to me.”
At the end of the day our failure is our accomplishment.
If we adjusted our effort and therefore failed.
We were directed ourselves to accomplish that failure.
If Hurricane came and cause the failure;
Our skills weren’t great enough to overcome.
Again a failure they we accomplish.
If we fell a second short of reaching a goal and failed,
Realized that is a still an accomplishment.
If we recognize and learn from our accomplished failures we will soon realized we need to set more challenging goals!
