Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success. ~ Denis Waitley
Anyone who knows anything about failure know that it has the power to temporarily render you hopeless. No matter how enlightened and present a person is, there is always that split second where everything just sucks.
But what happens after the split second of darkness? Does it stretch out to become a few seconds… or a few days… or a couple months? And then what? After an epic fail when do you pick yourself up and try again?
“Failure” is no big deal; honestly it’s like an opinion. Everyone has one; most have many. As a writer I’ve had so many I can’t remember them all! And I don’t consider them failures at all, because I always picked myself back up and kept going in a more informed way. How many times have you heard of folk who hit rock bottom, supposedly, right before something wonderful happened for them? If that person hadn’t picked themselves up would they have achieved success?
