Ever been on the tip of success and just rolled all the way back to your first step? Ever feel like your life has been one disaster after another? If you do, would you like to know where you failed? When we fail, we feel like we have gone backward. Sometimes we go back to the first step and sometimes it’s somewhere in between.
Travelling that same road and starting again isn’t gonna be a cakewalk for everyone. Believe me, I’ve read about and seen many people who choose to stay put rather than put in an effort. Life is simple, and way easier if you understand the essence of the little things. Failure is one such essence. How can someone feel the essence of success if they haven’t experienced failure? Not everyone feels like they are sinking in quicksand, but many of us do. We fail, and it’s good to fail. At least we are gonna get some time to think back on what went wrong.
Sometimes our journeys are meaningless. We try, we fail, we try again, fail again, and this continues forever. Have you ever given yourself a moment to think back? To ask yourself why you’ve been failing? Are you on the right pathway? Are you putting in enough effort or are your efforts just superficial? Yes, that period of time between failure and success is of utmost importance. I repeat; that period will keep on recurring until you understand and learn from it. Even if you’ve put a lot of will-power and effort into something, sometimes the destination you choose is wrong. Give yourself space. Get back to the present, pull yourself from the dreams of the past and glories of the future.
For the present decides who you are and will manifest itself in the long run on your way to success. Also, life’s not always about success or failure. As we are told, again and again, our generation has been brought up to be competitive. We are just built in such a way that we only focus on these few essences of life. You’ve got to experience a lot more than this, every day, every moment, and every memory is precious. But what is above everything else is your present. Stay in the present. Give yourself all the love and time you deserve. Give your body and brain some fresh air to dust off the rotten parts inside you. You are the only one who can help yourself, and no one else can ever do what you can do for yourself. Live a life above these conceptions.
Start anew every day. Feel yourself, and be yourself. Give yourself a new chance and start your day as a new day.
All the best:)
