On Accepting Failure #IWSG
Silly me and my teenage self.
Of course when I eventually did wake up and start applying myself, my world opened up. I could do more, be more. Dreams became possible. They became reality.
The thing about failure is that it isn’t a monster and neither is it the end of the world. Sometimes we have to accept failure to move forward. I’d go as far to say that failure is necessary for success. We learn through failing. We grow through failure. Failing makes us stronger and wiser.
In the Christian faith we must first recognise we are sinners and need saving before we can be saved.
People with addictions must first recognise and accept they have an addiction before they can move forward and start dealing with the problem.
Writers must first write a crappy first draft before they can shape it into the published book it’s meant to become.
To make our dreams reality, we have to apply ourselves and we have to work through those endless hurdles, closed doors, nay-sayers, and our own personal fears. Sure there will be some stumbling along the way, but when we persevere, magic happens.
What are the things that hold you back? What gets you through?
What if the government tried to create the perfect utopia? Could a society linked to a supercomputer survive on its own? Do our reflections control secret lives on the other side of the mirror? Can one moment split a person’s world forever?
