Out of all the many many advices I’ve received in 18 years, “Have faith that you will prosper but also prepare your heart for failure” must be one of the most important ones. Someone near and dear told me this during a tough period. How true isn’t it though? Not only does being prepared for failure protect us from breaking our hearts and disappointment, but it forces us to face the fact that life isn’t all chocolates and rainbow pooping unicorns… (u don’t say).
In all seriousness I think it’s crucial for us to be prepared for any outcome, good or bad. Sometimes… it may be better to expect the worst and hope for the best. Sometimes. I also believe that we should expect nothing but the best and trust that we have a bright future ahead of us. I’m in conflict with myself when it comes to this mindset buuut what I do know for sure is that whatever the outcome is, it’s for our own good. But that’s me, that’s just the way I look at things. It can be challenging, but I know I have to be prepared for the worst to happen and that’s becuase I also know that what’s meant to be is meant to be.
Much like Albert Einstein said himself: “Failure is success in progress”.
Being prepared for bad things to happen isn’t negative at all. If anything, it’s healthy. Just because things don’t go the way we want them to, doesn’t mean we should be miserable. No life is obstacle-free so we might as well just accept it while we keep on aiming high. Failure along the way just help us grow and prepare us for the success ahead of us! As cheesy as all of this sounds it’s so true. Being prepared for failure is key to success otherwise each downfall lead to disappointment, which will then hinder us from being ambitious. I think failure should be embraced instead of being feared.
