Accepting failure is a choice we all must make if we really strive for peace in our lives.
One of my favorite books of all time, begins with these powerful words:
Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it, then life is no longer difficult. – M. Scott Peck, The Road Less Travelled
The same is true with failure.
Accept the fact that failure is a necessary part of your life, and you no longer fear it quite the same way.
