Success or failure?

If we can change the way we think about success and failure, I think we could solve sadness and depression for many in the world. In American society we are taught success is about being rich, famous, huge house and cool cars. We are made to believe it is a destination rather than a journey. We are made to believe that failure is eternal doom, rather than an opportunity to grow and adapt.

I have spoken about failure before so you should all understand how important it is to fail in life. Failure shapes you as a person, gets rid of a big ego, and makes people achieve things in their life they may have never thought possible.

Success is a journey, the road you take, trials and tribulations, ups and downs… You are successful if you do not give up. Thus, the only way you can truly fail is if you stop trying. You may not succeed on the first attempt at something, but if you learn from your mistakes, reflect on your actions and adapt your abilities and continue to try, strive and attempt to accomplish your goal…then you are successful!

TASK: Challenge what you think about “success” and “failure” Change your perception, change your world!
