"Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will."
There are times in life when you suddenly feel as though you’ve gone off course. Your missing something, somethings not right but you can’t seem to figure that out.
For the life of you, you can’t help but wonder what the hell happened to your charm, game, style, or even mojo. Am I off track? How did this happen? Where did I go wrong? I’m a dreamer, I had a plan and it was all going so well until it wasn’t, and I can’t seem to stand it. This type of feeling usually kicks in when I miserably fail to achieve a certain goal that I truly worked hard for.
That’s it, it’s time for me to recalculate things, it’s time to reconsider things, it’s time to make a new realistic plan or else its worthless. I paused for a second, there’s nothing unrealistic about what I want and I’m going to get it one way or another. Honestly it took me sometime to figure this out, but I came to the realization that failure is a part of the process.
When you start questioning your daily routines, you start noticing small changeable errors that may led to this failure however if these errors are fixed they will somehow change your journey. What’s truly amazing about this is that when I was truly fed up with my failures it made me frustrated, anxious and I was always worried about almost everything in my life. All the worrying and anxiety and frustrations ruined my entire day and I didn’t even realize it.
I put myself under so many pressure when all I had to do is just breathe, embrace things, live in the moment and trust the process. That’s where it hit me, failure doesn’t mean I’m weak or that I’m not good enough or that I’m not meant to be doing what I’m doing. Surprisingly, failure is a test and when you give up on something that you always wanted that’s where you’re in the wrong.
I never considered my failures as weaknesses and I never doubted my own goals or my destiny. I realized that sometimes failure plays with your head, it plays this twisted game that makes you question everything you ever worked for.
To me it was just a wrong turn in an endless path filled with millions of opportunities. I know what I want now more than ever, if you fail at something don’t you ever doubt yourself. Failure is what makes you share or tell a beautiful inspiring story, failure is a part of your journey towards success. I stopped to recalculate things, but then I stepped right back into being the author of my own decisions and my own life.
