"You only fail when you stop trying."
Have you ever sat around for an entire day, doing absolutely nothing? If so, what happened while you sat there? Did you learn anything, experience anything, or accomplish something? Probably not. You have nothing to report because nothing happened. You failed to embrace any adventures or life lessons. You let life slip past you.
Have you ever felt unappreciated at work? Did it keep you from trying harder? What happened when you stopped climbing that ladder of success? Nothing. In fact, you probably slid down that ladder, landing back where you started. You allowed a setback to prevent you from trying harder at work. Other people got promoted ahead of you, and your superiors started to lose faith in you.
You only fail when you stop trying. This goes in any aspect of life. If you stop doing all of the things you need to do in order to success, not only will you not move forward in life, you will slide backwards, down that ladder, hitting rock bottom hard.
We have to create our own success. No one can hand us success. If you want to be successful, you have to put in effort. You have to keep getting up in the morning, taking care of your loved ones, going to work, working on your own health, and embracing life each and everyday.
This is the only life we have. If we allow failure to take control, we are wasting precious time. Put in the hard work, and blessings will follow.
You only fail when you stop trying!
