Failure, embrace it!

‘The greatest mistake a man can make is to be afraid of making one.’ Hubbard

My objective today is to help you fail more, embrace failure – not love it,

YES it hurts but, in many cases

THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO LEARN.

In the words of Tal Beh Shahar, Harvard University professor,

‘We learn to

  • walk by falling
  • to talk by babbling
  • to eat by making a mess
  • to colour inside the box by scribbling outside the box’

In the words of Roosevelt,’there is no effort without error…the credit belongs to the man in the arena, it is not the critic who counts’

Live is too short for us to live it any other way!

So let’s fail our way to success:

Where can you dare greatly?

Where do you need to take more risks?

Put yourself on the line and fail your way to success!

Dignity in the Face of Diversity

Abilene, the main character in the immensely successful book ‘The Help’ by Kathryn Stockett, is a black maid. She has endured many tragedies, including the death of her only child. Despite this she exhibits strength, dignity and kindness while raising other children – the children of her white  employers. While enduring so much discrimination, she still tries to remain non-judgemental, loyal and kind to not only her employer, but also their family and friends.

Like Abilene, how many ways can we show courage, dignity and wisdom as we face our challenges in life?
