We have all been there. Letting the sick, heavy feeling of failure and disappointment overwhelm us when something doesn’t turn out the way we had hoped. We cry, sulk and moan about it but really we shouldn’t be focusing on the failure at all.
You have not failed, it just hasn’t worked out as you thought it would. Maybe that step wasn’t the right one for you, or at least not right now. Maybe you have been saved from some greater sadness or disappointment.
Perhaps it was a lesson to remind you that if you want something you have to give it all you’ve got and you only gave it 80%. If you did give it everything, maybe there is something bigger and better waiting for you just around the corner.
Hold your head up high, don’t give up and keep smiling and challenging yourself.
