Life is full of new opportunities so that when one door closes, another door opens. We must make ourselves aware of the door that’s open and the opportunities that lie beyond it.
None of us will have control all the time, but we can have control over most things. We do have control over how we perceive things that we fail at and how we come through the other end.
Sadly, when we fail, we tend to lose sight of our opportunities. Failing isn’t bad, but at the time it seems like the end of the world. Failing is an opportunity to learn new things, open new doors, learn how to adapt and for us to find a resolve on what we failed at.
Failing also gives us the opportunity to stand back, find an understanding and find a level of acceptance on having failed. If I fail at something now that is my responsibility. If I fail because someone else was responsible for my decision, then that someone is responsible, but it’s still up to me to find a way through.
If we choose to wallow, we miss out on any new opportunities that come our way. We continue to miss out when we choose to deal with what we fail at, unless we learn to let go of those failings.
Life teaches us if we prepared to look for our lessons that failure is one of our most valuable tools.
