Everyone says failure is just a mistake.
Failure is actually…
Failure is knowing that you could’ve been better and not achieving anything.
Failure is looking at yourself in the mirror every day and wanting to fight yourself because you are the only reason you didn’t become something.
Failure is having more hurdles set up in your path and being forced to jump over them.
Failure is slipping down the mountain and having to start from the bottom every single day.
Failure is not an opportunity. Failure is not a mistake to right. Failure is not having to rethink your situation.
Failure is a slap in the face every single day. Failure is trying to get up every single day and the universe pushing you back down and kicking you in the teeth, daring you to get back up.
So you get back up every day. And ask for more. Because to lie there and take it, is to let your spirit die. Failure is the sidekick in your story who gets you into all sorts of trouble and laughs from the sidelines as you figure out the puzzles and monsters.
Failure is what it is.
What is failure to you? Let me know in the comments. Or let me know why I’m wrong.
