Were it not for our uncanny ability to persevere in spite of failure, we’d still be living in caves, huddling around a fire.
Were it not for our resilience in face of danger, fear, pain, suffering, we’d still be hunted down by bigger predators, foraging for food in any way we can.
We’d never have developed the technological advances that allow me to write this post and share it with people half a world away. We’d never have invented art. We’d never have developed the intricate language we currently possess.
You only fail if you give up.
You only fail if you blame someone else.
