You Win & You Lose

Success = Failure
My friend & I were talking the other night and I told her to try.
'Try - I hate that word! It always leads to success or failure' - she replied
I puzzled this over...
& here starts our story...
Failure to me is not negative. Eache time we fail we gain something. We learn vital information which helps us grow hopefully if we use this information positively we grow into better people.
So therefore failure is not failure at all. Failure is success in disguise, it helps you get to where you want to be. Without it you would never appreciate your success. Which leads me onto why success is a hidden failure. Now don't get me wrong we should all aim to achieve our goals but success what does that mean?
Success refers to reaching your potential.
Now I don't know about you but once I have achieved one goal my potential grows and I create new goals. Which means the realm of success has broadened I haven't achieved it. In fact I've failed. There is another aspect because when we succeed we lose because we lose from opportunities that were hidden in the failure.
This is why in reality there is no success of failure. There is only growth and once realising this we can be happy no matter what the situation is. I like to remember this quote that a friend of mine taught me, ' You either leave with a pocketful of gold or a pocketful of knowledge.' You can never lose. Remember this and live happy.
