The Wisdom of Failure
"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry." ~ Ernest Hemingway
Failure reminds us we need to try harder, be smarter, find a better approach. Not selling your art? Make better art. Learn how to sell more effectively. Be more compelling. Find a better audience. Find out what they want... and give it to them!
We’re not here to live a life of "quiet desperation." Yet so many of us do.
Failure reminds us we’re human. Our response to failure makes us or breaks us. Don’t stay broken. Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better. Be a better person. Contribute more. Discover ways to add more value at work, home, in your community.
No act of kindness is too small; no form of gratitude too big. Find ways to help others. Volunteer your time with a local organization. Amazing things begin happening when we help others. The universe conspires to nudge us forward as long as we remain committed to kindness, gratitude and service.
To a better day!
