“Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.” Truman Capote.
“My biggest “failure” was in my personal life, years ago. I learned that when we are down, we tend to focus on our current situation, which only worsens matters. Focus on where you need to be, and work to get there.
I played the “victim” card. I felt life was unfair. Life isn’t unfair. Life is just life. If you point the finger, you cannot accept responsibility. If you do that, you cannot grow. Our biggest growth comes from our most painful experiences.
How you perceive things determines how you will react, and your level of inner peace.
Curt Sassak, International gourmet chef (United States, Dubai, Mumbai, Egypt)
We tend to be grateful for our successes, but we should be thanking our struggles and failures instead. Through the experience I learned to view struggle as a valuable commodity in defining character. I also learned there is no such thing as “failure.” There is only growth.”
