“Only when you have been in the deepest valley
would you appreciate the magnificence
of the greatest mountains.”
– President Richard Nixon.
Why is it that we must have this failing experiences in life?
In hindsight, some people when they failed in their endeavor they stay in it. On the other hand, I had noticed many amazing people when they failed, they learned from it, focused on moving forward and never give up working on their dreams.
I believe every failure is a lesson that drives all of us to try a new approach never tried before more. I believe we learn wisdom from failure, much more than from success. It is an opportunity for us to begin again more intelligently.
Unfortunately, most people associate failure as the enemy of success. As such, many prefer the easy way out or having an easy life without difficulty or problems. Indeed, who would want to live a tough or a hard life?
If you had tried and met with failure, if you had planned and watched your plans crushed before your eyes, just be mindful, the greatest people that we know in history are the products of courage, and courage is born in the cradle of adversity. It is not a stigma to have tried and failed.
Never give up dreaming. I reckon each and everyone of us have talent. But, as Enica Jang once said; “What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.” You see, the fear of failure usually prevent us from succeeding. So if you are not prepared to risk the possibility of failing , please do not envy those who have better things in life because they had paid their price.
Fear not that you are old. Start dreaming again and hold on to your dreams. None of us grows old by merely living a number of years. We grow old only by deserting our ideals. Indeed, years may wrinkle our skin, but the cold truth is, to give up interest wrinkles the soul. But, …………..
If you have left your dreams behind,
If hope is lost. If you no longer look ahead,
If your ambitious fire are dead –
Then you are old.
But if from life you take the best
And if from life you keep the jest
If love you hold –
No matter how the years go by,
No matter how the birthdays fly,
You’re not old.”
Never give up dreaming ………………………… You are only as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair …………………………. Have A Dream and start dreaming again. !!!
