An excerpt from my new book…
Yes, you can adapt to change, be MORE successful AND EARN MORE MONEY
Today’s opportunities are a way to erase the failure of yesterday. Failure does not mean you are a failure, it means you have not succeeded yet and you need to do something differently next time. Failure does not mean you stop or quit but that change is required to improve and to get better results. Failure does not classify you as inferior but it means you are not perfect and are willing to change for the better. Failure does not mean you have been disgraced, it only shows you are willing to try and that you will try a different way until you get the desired results. Failure does not mean you have accomplished nothing, it means you have learned something. Failure does not mean you have wasted your life, it means you have a reason to start again and embrace good change. Failure does not mean you have been a fool, it means you have a lot of faith and wisdom, you are born to achieve in life and you will succeed.
Any challenge you are going through now will only make you stronger. Though you may feel broken and bruised now, you will recover from this ordeal a more resilient person. When we get injured, the scar tissue that develops to mend our damaged skin is stronger than you could ever imagine. It’s the same for your heart and soul: trust in their ability to heal, too. In keeping with this, celebrate your failures as lessons learnt. As the wonderful Oprah Winfrey encourages, think like a king or queen. A king or queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another step to greatness. Take heart and have faith in the fact that thanks to the experience, you will be better equipped to deal with whatever life throws at you next.
Let me share with you the story of an eagle. The eagle has the longest life span of its species. It can live up to 70 years but to reach this age, the eagle must make a very difficult decision. In its 40th year, the eagle’s long and flexible talons can no longer grab a prey, which serves as food. Its long and sharp beak becomes bent. It’s old-aged heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, stick to its chest and make it difficult to fly. Then, the eagle is left with only two options: DIE or go through a painful process of CHANGE! This process lasts for 150 days (5 months) and the process requires the eagle to fly to a mountaintop and sit on its nest. There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out. Then the eagle will wait for the new beak to grow back after which it will pluck out its talons. When its talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old aged feathers for new ones to grow. And after this, the eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and lives for 30 more years!
