Mistakes and failures are a word that often leads the life of an individual to ruin his potential as well as his life. Sometimes people despise themselves so much after making mistakes that it becomes impossible for the individual to rectify the wrongs. Especially for those individuals who has a weak foundation, knowledge and skills on how to handle and manage the severe feedback. The result is… It Hurts, It Hurts You Know!
It’s really true that the diamond cannot be polish without friction nor man be perfected without trials.
Last night I had encountered a funny experience. My husband requested me to lead the family prayer in a prayer bond with the children. When I began to pray, what a strange happen that I subject to much hesitation in my choice of words that when I finished my prayer, makes my family to laugh mightily eventually I was on the phone to one his close ally as he shared with him my funny experience. When I heard their conversation as well as their laughing instead of saying… It Hurts, It Hurts You Know! I comforted and reminded myself that this is only a dream and I just only playing my role in life. Therefore learn, laugh at your mistakes and make a glorious one!
I remember when God created a human being He put a touch of greatness into his nature. A man is a mixture, that’s for sure. But however weak, mixed up, however defeated he can be, there is still this element: Something in him entitles him to be called a child of God. No matter what happens to man in the way of difficulty and trouble, he still has what it takes to come out of it with dignity and power and get on top.
My own experience has taught me this. If you wait for the perfect moment when all is safe and assured it may never, never come. Mountains will not be climbed, races won or lasting happiness achieved.
Some people settle for defeat all too easily. Others do not settle easily, but trouble and failure gradually wear them down and eventually they become tired and discouraged as well as give up. It’s the individual who has a deep faith and gut courage who comes through life’s tough battles with a victory instead of a defeat.
I recall the wise counsel of a certain great man, Theodore Roosevelt, the great president of America.
“In the battle of life, it is not the critic who counts; nor the one who points out how the strong person stumbled, or where the doer of a deed could have done better.
The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who does actually strive to do deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotion, spends oneself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at worst, if he or she fails, at least fails while daring greatly.
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.�?
Anthony Robbins adds “There are no real successes without rejection. The more rejection you get, the better you are, the more you’ve learned, the closer you are to your outcome.�?
Before I end my article, I would like to leave a special message for you, dear readers.
“Everything is a test, to see what you will do,
Mistaking what’s before your eyes,
You’ll have to start a new�? (Master Hsuan Hua).
Dear readers, if you have similar experience like mine; I firmly encourage you to LEARN, LAUGH AT YOUR MISTAKES AND MAKE A GLORIOUS ONE! DON’T FORGET THE DOOR ONLY OPENS FOR THOSE WHO TRIED HARD!
I wish you all well, Shallom!
