Failure Is Only The Opportunity to Begin Again, Only This Time More Wisely

“Failure is only the opportunity to begin again, only this time more wisely”

Success, failures and successful failures.

Life is not always going to go the way you would want it to. We may plan and try to make everything go our way but nothing is ever set in stone. Take failures as a guidance. Take it as means of knowing where you are going and where you should not be. There is a saying that says that “God closes one door to open another”. If you try and try yet you fail but know that what you are doing is going against God’s working then maybe it is time to let go of your own desires and put the Lord first.

It is a new beginning. Start with a new slate, a clean board. Go back to planning and realise that maybe what you had previously chosen is not what is right to you. Choose wisely, walk strongly and focus intently. Never think that by failing one thing that you have failed all. It is not the end but a new beginning where you can work towards a brighter future and a more fulfilling life.

I hate failing. I am one of those people that does not take defeat happily or quietly. I can never take it as it is and I would constantly be against whatever and whoever has told that I have not done the best that I possibly can. I question and I hold on to the little things. One thing that I have started to understand is that I can never control all the outcomes of my life and that once in a while, God will reveal His plans for me. Letting go and moving on is a constant battle that I have and at times I would never get over it. I have learnt that life is not going to go my way but rather than making it hard for myself by being stubborn, I should embrace the new opportunity that I have acquired.
