Failure is the new success

These so called millennials are a lucky bunch ☺️ . Why so, you may ask? For one, they have been repeatedly reminded that failure is to be embraced with grace . It takes you a step closer to success, and that we may even celebrate failure. Defeat emphasizes that we have tried, and made efforts. We have dared to turn dreams into reality.

Life wasn’t so simple when I was growing up ☺️ . Failure was looked down upon, it was synonymous with sin ! The fear of failing was so intense, it was impossible to try out new things. Good grades in school and college made you socially likeable. Failure put you in oblivion. 

I consider myself lucky to be alive today ☺️ . I can now fail with flair, and brag about it too . I am a strong propagator of working on what you like. Success and failure are arbitrary, they mean different things to different people. They also mean different things to the same people, at different times. You may consider making one sale as success today, but 100 sales as failure tomorrow. It is the journey, and what you learn during this attempt, is what’s valuable. 

The ability to draw lessons from your success/failure, and to implement them to lead a meaningful life, is the real victory. Failures give us so many hints on how we need to move along to reach our goal. I think I would have done far more number of things in my life, if the stigma attached with losing out wasn’t so severe.

It’s not too late, friends. We are aging slowly now, thanks to the advances in  medical and fashion industry. Lets make use of the longevity that’s been awarded to us. Let’s do what we missed out on ☺️ . If we can make efforts and look 10-20 years younger, we can very well fulfill the dreams that we left behind. Age should no longer be a constraint.

Have a wonderful day ☺️ .
