Stop Worrying About Failing

    FAILURE. We've all experienced it, in one way or another. Maybe you didn't get that job you worked hard for, or maybe your romantic conquests didn't end with you having a guy/gal. The reality is, we, as imperfect human beings, have experienced some form of failure at some point in our lives. It really isn't fun, but it's something we put up with, sometimes on a daily basis. Failure is a neverending part of being alive. However, failing doesn't mean that you have lost completely. In fact, it's quite the opposite. For each and every time you fail in accomplishing something, you take one more conceptual step to realizing your dreams. Failure can and will take its toll on you, and you may feel like giving up hope and throwing in the towel, but I promise you, it is not the end of the world, and you are not alone.

Sometimes, when we have failed, or keep failing,  we can feel like the world is against us. Let me tell you a little secret: that's completley false! Everybody in the entire world has had to experience failure, no matter how good or bad of a person they are/were. Heck, even well known historical figures and celebrities have failed, no matter how perfect they

Before becoming a billonairess with her own show, Oprah Winfrey was fired from her previous job as a TV anchor. Steven Spielberg? He's definitely failed. Before becoming a cinematic god, he was rejected twice from the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts. Thomas Edison, whom you may or may not know as the inventor of the lightbulb (depending on where you stand on the Tesla - Edison war) has failed. He was told by his teachers that he was too stupid, and then went on to become a genius inventor. Walt Disney, the creator of the gigantic corporation we all know and love, has failed. When he worked for a newspaper, his editor told him that he lacked imagination and had no good ideas. He then went on to create, you guessed it, Mickey Mouse and his pals. J.K. Rowling, the writer of a book that would start a huge cult following and a film franchise, is a fantastic example of perseverance. Before she wrote Harry potter, Rowling was a broke, single mother suffering from depression. Now she is one of the richest women in the entire world, and she's still writing to this day. So, as you can clearly see, failure does not rule out the chance of success in the slightest, so long as you keep trying!

Persevere and tear down your walls. Your goals, no matter how big or small, can and will be achieved, as long as you never give up on them. If you want that job you've worked so very hard to get, you go get it. If you truly want to be with that guy/girl you love, you go get them. No matter what you want in life, don't give up on it, no matter how long it takes, and no matter how difficult it is. You think all of these rich and famous celebrities were just handed their success on a silver platter? Absolutley not!They worked long and hard to achieve their dreams, and so can you! I believe it was Albert Einstein who said, "You never fail until you stop trying.".... Adam Mahan
