Hello sweet one. Are you feeling down because you sense you have failed at something?
If so, do not allow it to hurt your your soul but rather celebrate in it for what you deem as a failure is in reality a stumble that allows you to gain the information you need to become a success.
Everyone who is successful today knows this to be true from such greats as Steven Spielberg to Walt Disney to J.K. Rowling to even Jerry Seinfeld.
In fact, I remember personally when Jerry was considered a failure in comedy for you see it was open mic night in Westport and I had planned to make my debut as a comedian. Jerry went on before me. He was nervous and had toilet paper attached to his shoe. His material was horrible - so bad in fact that it made the audience hostile. I was to go next but decided to forfeit my turn as I didn't want to perform in front of an angry crowd or worse have them be angry at me. Instead of me venturing out and trying to spread my wings I moved on - a regret I still have to this day. Jerry on the other hand used his performance to learn from and to continue to fail until finally he had gathered enough knowledge to know how to be successful. And that is what life is about - having the courage and fortitude to keep trying at your passions until you find the key that opens up success.
