The Courage To Face Potential Failure

"For a chance at success, you need to have the courage to face potential failure." A line in Douglas Barr's filmTaking A Chance On Love. This line was one of those statements that immediately had me pondering and racing with thoughts.  Now, clearly, I enjoy watching the Hallmark Channel but as I mentioned before, I tend to draw inspiration from many things.  Needless to say, after I gathered my thoughts, I was able to pull insight from the statement.

the courage to face potential failure

Everyone wants to be successful and desires a life where they are financially stable, established in their career, and has a healthy & loving marriage.  We all just want to be happy. 

I don’t believe anyone wants to live a life without at least two of the above mentions.  As human beings we are naturally equipped with the physical necessities to obtain success.  However, sometimes the mental health and emotions needed to support the journey to success, is learned through trial and error.

You will go through bumps in the road, blown out tires, and even elongated red lights.  All

are symbolic of the obstacles and trials in this journey we call life.  The journey is the same for everyone,  it’s the path we choose that’s different.  Sometimes you win, sometimes you loose.  There are moments when you meet success and days when you greet failure.  It’s the internal confidence you must possess to be courageous and accept the fact, there are some things you will fail at.  You may even fail numerous times attempting the same course, but as Edison said “I have not failed, I’ve just found 10,000 ways that don’t work”.

The sweet taste of success is deserving and valued after failure.  The lessons learned and wisdom acquired builds your courage to face potential failure in the future.  You won’t birth your potential into talent if you allow yourself to be afraid of not succeeding.  Give yourself a chance at success, build the courage you need to accept the possibility of failure, and don’t settle for wasted talent due to the fear of failure.

Do you possess the courage to face potential failure?  Your comments and feedback are welcome.
