Dare to fail


They say luck is something that happens to other people.

They also say that you’re not a failure until you blame someone else. Or something else.

I have never considered myself to be particularly talented. I struggle a lot. I have a lot of trouble writing, and it’s one thing I have been doing for a long, long time. All else feels almost impossible. It makes me feel sad, it makes me feel angry.

It seems so unfair.

Why does it have to be this hard?

The truth is, I am not particularly lucky. I am not that smart. I am not good looking.

And neither are you.

Compare these factors alone, there will always be someone better.

Trust me, there’s someone out there who does exactly the thing you are best at in half the time and twice as best. Or is better paid for it. Or earns a lot more appreciation for it.

There’s someone out there who’s everything you wish to be but are not.

But none of those things really matter.

Because the only thing that matters is that you have this one talent: that you never quit.

Let this be your mantra. Write it on your wall. On all the walls. On everything. Recite it. Set it as your Wi-Fi password.

“My only talent is that I just don’t quit.”

And sooner or later, you’ll get everything you want in this world.

You cannot control the often bizarre factors that influence your life. You cannot change the genes that were passed down to you, or the education you received.

In fact, you’ll never be able to change what you did until this moment.

So why bother about it all?

Nothing can beat you unless you give up.

You only fail if you try to excuse yourself.

Bad luck is for those who didn’t work hard enough.

You know it’s true. I know it’s true.

It’s the most difficult thing in the world: to take responsibility for your life.

You are the captain of this ship.

 

“Other people and things can stop you temporarily. You’re the only one who can do it permanently.”Zig Ziglar

 

You are the only one who’s ever going to save you. Or give you what you want.

If you’re thinking “yes, but…” don’t. Just don’t. You know they are all excuses.

Because there is someone else in this world…

No matter the amount of bad luck, or the setbacks, or the tragedies that you have encountered in your life, there’s someone else who’s had it much, much worse and, in spite of it all, managed to achieve the thing you are afraid of fighting for.

  1. Beautifully written, and very true

  2. The fear of failure is for those who are not sure of why they are doing what they are doing or where they are going; when you know your feet are firmly on the right path and you know your message is true then failure is just another step on the sure road to success. Failure is just a stepping stone. :) Steven R. Harrel

    And also if we all just start blaming ourselves for every failure, we’ll be able to do more to prove our self rather than blaming others for our failure.

    Who are you to tell me I’m not that particularly good looking, HUH?! Let us take this outside to the parking lot.

    Jokes aside, the truth is that it is up to you and I to either quit or keep going!

    Pro tip: Don’t set this as your Wifi password, or you will all get hacked. Choose it as your Wifi Network Name :D
