Failing is Amazing

When you think of it, failing is much more extraordinary than succeeding. It takes guts to fail with grace. And when you fail with grace, there is infinitely more respect and admiration of you.

When you think of it, there is some form of victory on both ends. Failing grants the victory of Trying. Failing grants the victory of Doing. Failing grants the victory of Finishing. And, always, I would rather be finished and failed than unfinished and neither failed nor successful.

Failing is amazing. I gain so much from it. My skin is thickened, my determination is broadened, my skills are honed, my knowledge is widened,  my mind is set. I like falling down and getting back up again. I like to smile and laugh in the enemy’s face every time, because I can see how much it infuriates him. Nothing irritates more than someone who won’t give up. And nothing accomplishes more than someone who won’t give up.

Failing is amazing. Course, I never try to fail. I will always try to succeed. But when I do fail, I quietly smile to myself, because I just got the best of both worlds.
