“If everything we attempted in life was achieved with a minimum of effort and came out exactly as planned, how little we would learn-and how boring life would be! And how arrogant we would become if we succeeded at everything we attempted. Failure allows us to develop the essential quality of humility. It is not easy-when you are the person experiencing failure-to accept it philosophically, serene in the knowledge that this is one of life’s great learning experiences. But it is. Nature’s ways are not always easily understood, but they are repetitive and therefore predictable. You can be absolutely certain that when you feel you are being most unfairly tested, you are being prepared for great achievement” ~ Napoleon Hill Foundation
You’re here to learn. Unfortunately, you’re likely going to make some mistakes along the way. That’s okay. That’s how you learn. The repetitive nature of mistakes is a reminder that you still have more to learn in order to move on.
The best bet is to accept the challenge head on and go through the learning process. Only through your hard work and gained insight will you appreciate the progress you’ve made, how far you’ve come, and be grateful to the people who supported you that allowed you to have the experiences in order to grow.
It may appear unfair but each person has their own challenges to face. What appears easy for you may be a challenge for someone else. You don’t have the same challenges. His challenge may show up in an entirely different way or time.
It may help to think of every challenge and set back as preparation for your great achievement. Here is one more challenge to overcome before you can shine. Take it for what it is, an adventure.
