The more you fail, the greater the chance that you will ultimately succeed. You can actually fail yourself to success, because every time you fail you gain experience. Learn to look for the silver lining behind every cloud. There are powerful lessons to be learned from every challenge. Challenges are there to slow us down long enough for us to learn lessons we need on the road to our dreams. Successful people understand that failure is simply part of the process, and they know that avoiding temporary failure guarantees permanent failure.
Opportunities come and go. Life has a cycle that comes and goes just like the ocean’s tides. When a surfer misses a wave, he doesn’t waste precious energy by getting upset. He learns from his mistake, makes an adjustment, and positions himself to take advantage of the next wave. Become an opportunity surfer. Put yourself in a position to win.
Put it into action:
Don’t waste time worrying about something that happened in the past. Look around for today’s opportunity. Don’t let a great wave pass you by.
Make it an Olympic Day!
