Failure is not accomplishing what you wanted, not achieving a goal that you set. Every person defines failure for themselves. Many would label others as a failure, but it really only matters when we call ourselves a failure. Failure is not a permanent state, just a temporary setback. A key motto that I have in regards to failure is this” all growth takes place at the point of change, change is resisted until we fail and then we are open to change and then we grow, so failure is the key to growth”! Many don’t seek to change when they fail, they just sit and wallow in their sense of being a loser . You don’t want to do that. Set lofty, stretching goals. Write them down. Read them everyday. Press on to accomplish them, work really hard to make them reality. If you come up,short figure out what you could change and then give it another go.
