Failure is a choice

“Started from the bottom but now we’re here” – Drake. Failure is a choice so embrace it if you choose to be successful. For many people, failure is their deepest fear. Their biggest head game with themselves is whether or not they should pursue a dream because of some bull shit fear of failing. Well sorry about the vulgar language but failure is a part of the ingredients to make a success of anyone. “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” – Paulo Coelho. I believe failure cuts you into shape. It wakes the driven amongst us up in the morning to try again. For the weak, it causes drifting and self-doubt. “Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.” – Robert T. Kiyosaki. Every person of great accomplishment has found a sense of intimacy with failure. They learn to dance with her to whisper sweet nothings in her ear. Knowing that their charm will eventually open her up to reveal the secret to ultimate success. I have failed so often that people say it has made my story compelling and yet relatable which makes my success so much more fulfilling. You see when winning is the only option failure is just a current situation, not the final destination. I’ll end with a quote from one of the nation’s youngest president John F. Kennedy “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”
