Looking for a Sign

Thursday June 12, 2014 #635

“Failure is a signpost to turn you in another direction.” ~Oprah Winfrey

635

We all fail.  In little ways and in big ways.  The question is never, “will I fail?”  Of course I will.  The question is “what will I do when I fail?”  Reflection is always the important first step. Did I fail because I haven’t yet found the way through an obstacle, and therefore must keep trying different ways?  Or because I need to move in a different direction altogether?  The reflection will help determine the next action to take.

What failure is not, is a sign to give up on a worthy goal.  It may, however, be a sign to rethink whether your goal is indeed worthy.  If it is, don’t let anything stop you from taking actions, even when most fail.
