Rarely is there a real end amidst our lives. Sometimes it feels like the end. But if you think you’ve failed completely, you’re wrong. You get to decide when you have failed. Failing isn’t final. It isn’t the end of the journey unless you give up.
You are in control of your failure. It may not feel like it as extraneous variables knock you down. But, as long as you have not quit; you have not failed. Pick yourself up and keep going. Even if you return to your dreams slowly and limping, you’re still in the game. Failure is a long way away.
