Miracle



I have seen people taking failures for granted, as if that is the most obvious outcome. I have been a victim of the same line of thought too, innumerable times, ignoring that there is always another side to every coin. While it is easy to sulk and surrender to losses, the accompanying regret can be haunting. Why not then, strive an extra mile, take that demanding leap, and grab that sliver of an opportunity that is knocking on the door? What if we succeed?

And even if we fail, well, didn't we already take it for granted in the first case? At least this failure wouldn't have the extra burden of regret of not trying, and will be a bit lighter to carry.

What then, do you say?

  1. often, we start out with the mindset of "we can't" - hence, setting ourselves up to fail - and so it is, we give up without having begun; perhaps it's more a question of re-framing it all, and not boxing everything into tidy packages and labels of 'failure and success' - for even in a "failed" attempt at something, there is still a wealth of experience that exists ...

  2. I like to look at failure as a learning experience.
