It’s Day 2 of the three days, three quotes challenge. I would like to thank My Li’l Place for this nomination. Please visit her page and check out her creative posts.
This challenge inspired me to share with you – Three Quotes that will Change your Life.
Here’s the 2nd quote…
There is nothing to fear because you cannot fail – only learn, grow, and become better than you’ve ever been before. – Hal Elrod
I joined a Declamation Contest in High School. I represented our school and competed with students from different schools in our city. I performed in front of a large audience and of course, I gave it my best shot. I did not win.
It was heartbreaking because I practiced and spent a lot of my time preparing for the competition. My father wiped away my tears and told me that it’s ok to fail as long as I did my best. I have to learn to accept failure, get back on my feet and try again. After that, I’ve won other competitions, joined the Theater Group and got an award for Most Outstanding in Dramatics on graduation. It would have been nice to tell you that I went to Broadway and won a Tony Award, but that’s not my story.
I went through life facing one challenge after another. Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose. That failure I had in high school taught me how to be resilient. I’m learning from every pain and from every triumph. I’m slowly becoming the best version of myself.
Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from taking the first step towards your goal!
