Failures and Everything in Between

John Rey L. Villareal | Pyramid Ninja

Everyone wants to win. Be it in the sport they love or in the exams they take; nobody likes to lose. However, it cannot be avoided that things go south. Everything crash down. It’s basically Murphy’s Law. But saying that “failing in something is the end of the world” is a generalization of a potential that could happen.
Most of the time, failure is the thing that drives people down. It is essentially a person’s lowest point in life. Losing gives horrible feelings like inadequacy, that you could have done something better. However, if you just keep moving
forward, it will all fall in place. Sure, it might take a while to get back on your feet but there’s nothing better than overcoming your lowest point.

The best part about hitting rockbottom is that there’s no other place to go but up. Go on in life and learn from your mistakes. After all, you wouldn’t want to keep doing the same thing repeatedly unless you’re insane.
Failures build humanity. We could go on and on with successful failures like Bill Gates who was once a college drop-out. Even those famed for their success throughout life has probably gone through a loss at some point. The truth is: you’ll never learn true success unless you’ve already fallen from a cliff of despair.
Everyone has their share of embarrassments, griefs, or losses. It is just how one deals with it that changes the situation. You can’t do anything or feel good about whatever happened, but that doesn’t mean there’s only darkness waiting for you at the end of the tunnel. There’s always a positive aspect to everything. You should look for it.
Success isn’t always everything. Even heroes, comical or real, have their own set of downfalls. What makes them heroes isn’t because they can beat every villain they see but they try their best even if their odds are stacked against them. The important thing to everything in life is knowing that you tried and you gave all your best.
