Here I am: sitting, waiting, holding my breath. Does this get me anywhere? No. Will this get you anywhere? No. So then, why do we tell ourselves that ‘good things come to those who wait’? How on Earth is waiting better than doing? Don’t lose your breath as you gasp for air because this might shock you… it’s not.
We need to get ourselves out there and try. Yes, we might fail. Failure absolutely does not mean we give up. Everyone fails. If you haven’t failed, you haven’t tried.
Best way to cope with failure?
- Breathe. Never forget to breathe.
- Collect yourself and your confidence; never forget, you once believed that you can achieve your goal, why should you stop believing in yourself just because one person didn’t? Not everyone will agree, that’s just a fact of life.
- Remember: Not all criticism is to hurt us. On the contrary, most can help! We should take criticism in great stride and use it to help ourselves. Fix the problematic areas, for example: If your teacher corrects your essay and circles the run-on sentences, read up on grammar and punctuation.
Society needs to stop coming up with excuses for people; don’t be a bear of very little brain.
We can do anything we want to do, we just need to put in the work and try.
