This post is written for the 3-Day Quote challenge
This has been one of my favourite quote since my school days, I remember writing this quote in my note books; at times even in the rough book as I began to write my homework. This quote always inspired me to hope for the better in whatever happened in my life.
I was not very great in my academics, neither did I score high percentage of marks; I just managed to score a little above the pass marks, whenever I felt a bit low, I recalled and remembered this quote to push myself further. This quote continued to inspire me even in college and later on too… Now when I relook at this quote, I am still experiencing the impact on my life; bringing so many memories of failures and falling.
Failures to me was that I did not have the capacity to reach a certain standard whether it is to do with passing an exam or running a race or even competing with my classmates. Today I have redefined what failure is to me; it no longer setting high standards to accomplish, neither it comparing myself with another, nor it is competing with my friends.
Failure means learning…. Wherein I have learned something from a particular experience; I have taken initiative in trying and have the courage to accept and take responsibility for thinking, making decisions and overall for whatever I have achieved or not achieved.
Now I refuse to compare myself with others; I look within to see what I have to offer, I work on my strengths. I have learnt to believe in myself and through the learnings I have gained confidence … I have been able to do all this because I have learnt to rise every time I have fallen and am convinced that failure is never final.
There is always hope; hope to get up and rise once more, hope that there is new tomorrow; hope that all will be well; hope that I will succeed as I keep trying; and hope that I will be better prepared for whatever I want to achieve. Hope I will get more opportunities; more resources and abundance of everything to evolve and succeed to who I was always meant to BE.
Today I am in a position to help a lot of students who come to our centre; because of all the times I have fallen, and these experiences have equipped me to deal with every failure every situation without giving up easily.
Our failures as we call or falling never is wasted; we grow so much because of these experiences and it is these experiences that shapes us and makes us strong in our lives. It provides us with new perspectives, which otherwise we would never know; and make us a bit more humane, genuine, sensitive, kind and compassionate to everyone we meet.
