Ok – so if I see another post today about resilience I think I’m gonna end it.
For the last 7 days straight, all I’ve had rammed down my throat is that the mantra for the modern man should always be “Failure is not an option…”
Well, I’m calling BULLSHIT.
Because in my experience, there will always be POWER in failure.
You see in no other state do men like you and I have the opportunity to clear the mind of fear and start moving in a new direction.
For it is only in failure that the self-made man is FORCED to leave one journey and start another.
… And I don’t know about you, but in my experience, that’s the forcing of decisions that in the cold hard light of day and when push comes to shove – were overdue and a long time coming.
Truth be told, there is nothing more empowering than burning shit to the ground and starting again with a clear head.
… Because here’s the thing they don’t teach about failure:
Failure is the opportunity to test your metal and self-discipline under fire…
Failure is the opportunity to discover NEW truths that would be ignored without it.
Failure is the chance and the opportunity to see first hand how much will power, grit and determination you really have…
The fact of the matter is, if you study the most successful men, ever to walk the planet, you will find without exception, their success is directly related to experiencing vanquish before victory.
See, failure will always be a friend, not foe, of the self-made man.
So this week, and at all costs, I’d urge you to consider that any and all failings, if harnessed the right way – will be the true making of any man of value.
Make More. Provide More. Be More.
