There Is No Failure Except In No Longer Trying

Everything is going to go wrong for you at some point. Everything's going to go south and you're going to say, "This is it." This is how I end. Life is not easy at all. There will be difficulties, and you will be beaten down, that is the nature of life. Life is full of pain. It's everywhere.

The pain of defeat, the pain of being disappointed, the pain of losing, the pain of failure, the pain of being criticized, the pain of not being linked. Life is full of pain, pain, and more pain, but guess what? There is no gain without suffering. I don't know what you're going through, but I know that you need hope.

It is okay to be scared, it is okay to cry, but giving up is not when you feel like giving up. Don't. When you're thinking about giving up, don't. When it appears that you are not going to make it, keep going even if they tell you that you can't. Who exactly are they?

Don't believe a man, don't believe them when they tell you you're not going to make it, you have to be relentless. I don't care how dark it looks for you, I don't care what they've said to you, I don't care what the verdict is, I don't care what the haters say. It ain't over. Whatever happens to you, it's not the end of the world. There is no such thing as over.

Do you realise you have the ability to completely derail your life? Can you jack it all the way up and when you turn around, get it right? Do you know that you can be divorced multiple times and still be okay? Do you understand that you can not have a degree and still be just fine? Whatever you've been through now, whatever that is, guess what? You're still here.

Life is going to happen, and you're going to set up a plan, you're going to have a vision, and you're going to hope that it's going to turn out perfect, but what so often happens in life is that things get burned, things go the wrong way, and it's in that moment that you're going to have to choose your reaction. You have a choice to make.

Do you have the correct reaction or the incorrect reaction? And it doesn't matter how you get knocked down in life, because that's going to happen. All that matters is that you get up. Sometimes you're barely making any progress at all and that tough situation is making you want to stop, and what you eventually learn is that you can't stop when you're going through tough situations, you have to take that next step and keep moving forward.

Some of you have been knocked out by life, and you got up, saw the blood, and said, "Ahh, he hit me." Sometimes in life you have to hit back. When you're going through your go through, when you're ready to quit, you're ready to give in because it doesn't look like you think it should look. You've been doing it for five years and it doesn't look like you think.

If you put all your money into it, if you put all your time into it, people are looking at you like you're crazy. You've invested five years. Hold! You have absolutely nothing to do with what happened to you. It's not your fault! You got knocked on the ground. You had absolutely nothing to do with that and I'm not blaming you for that, but if I come back a week later, you are still on the ground. That's your fault.

If I come back a year later, you are still on the ground. That's your fault. If you get knocked down, there's nothing you can do about it, but getting back up has everything to do with you, and you will promise me that from this day forward you will not be defeated. I don't care if you're sick.

I don't care what you're going through. If you're not dead, he's not finished with you yet. You're still in the game as long as you're waking up. As long as you're alive, you can still make it happen. You are still in the game. You can still win it. Now get your run up.

I think a lot of people run from challenges. Once we realize that the thing is hard, we want to stop and do something else. Personally, I have always said that anyone that fails is not a failure but anyone that gives up is the real failure because he or she has failed to continue.

To be a champion, I think you have to see the big picture. It's not about winning and losing; it's about every day hard work and about thriving on a challenge. It's about embracing the pain that you'll experience at the end of a race and not being afraid. I think people think too hard and get afraid of a certain challenge.

All I see from your article is a lady that has refused to take no for an answer, I sincerely love you spirit. Most times when life hurts us, it is a sign that it will get better when we persevere but most times, we tend to shy away. I rather keep on trying than give up so soon.. Life could be tricky but mastery of its trick is a sure step to succeed.
