“The one who falls and gets up is stronger than the one who never tried. Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.”
-Roy T. Bennett
It is easy to become discouraged when we compare ourselves to the success of others. All we see is what they have accomplished and achieved. What we don’t see is the stress, the failed attempts, the doubt, and the perseverance.
There may be people out there who succeeded and conquered their dreams without every struggling or failing. Do not compare yourself to those people. Look to the people who never gave up no matter how unlikely their goals seemed. Those are the people to learn from.
Failure is a scary thing. I’ll admit that fear of failing has held me back from many opportunities in the past. I’ve learned that failing has made me stronger and has helped me so much more than simply succeeding ever could.
No matter how many times you fall, get back up. Learn from you mistakes and try again or find a better course. You will be stronger for it and your life will be so much more rewarding after working hard for your dreams.
