Life Hack for Getting Suddenly Awesome: Failure Doesn’t Matter

best-books-for-mystics-1

A long time ago, my dad talked to me about failure. He said: ‘It took me fifty years to figure out that what you accomplish doesn’t really matter . . . and I’ve only known that for fourteen years. But it was worth it. I regret some things–bad things I’ve done to people, those are the things you should regret–but I don’t regret failing, not accomplishing all I wanted. It doesn’t matter. And I have peace inside now, and now that I have realized this, it’s okay that it took fifty years to learn. Because that’s all I needed to do.

Give it a shot. You’ve got a good shot. But if you fail, don’t worry about it. It doesn’t matter.

Do you agree with this advice? Leave me your thoughts below.

  1. Failure matters, but not in the way the world, generally, looks at it.
    When you fail, you have a choice – learn or not. If you learn, then you get to move ahead, otherwise, it’s pot luck.
