Succeeding and Failing

Life’s a cycle. The start of pursuing something is always the best part but it just happens momentarily and so long ago that we tend to forget the excitement of creating something new and we claim that the end is where we measure the success of our pursuit.

Will there still be success if the end doesn’t go as how we expected it to be?

Yes. Simply because in the process of achieving something, we’ve done extraordinary things. By extraordinary, I meant doing the things that you don’t usually do and most of all, you do it because of a goal that you wish to have at the end. Doing with a purpose is what drives people to believe that there is success for without it, we would be stagnant and useless. Every decision, every move and every failure we’ve been through are all part of the journey and therefore, we’ve already achieved something even if what we really want isn’t what’s waiting for us ahead. Success isn’t something positive, it’s not something that the doer can judge for himself; sometimes we have to let others play in our lives by showing us the heroes in us. Some people experienced the dark side of life before receiving the better side of it and some have the reverse of it but it doesn’t mean that the former is luckier than the latter. We are all lucky and the things that others are experiencing right now, we will experience it later on. They too shall be in our shoes someday. But it doesn’t give us the permission to judge whether they’ve done better or worst; or have they succeed or failed just because they haven’t done what we did when we were in the situation.

And there shall always be success because life, my friend, is mysterious. It has no beginning and will have no end. That’s why there’ll never be an accurate basis on how successful one is. Your mortal goals are just a part of one big picture and you may never know what’s been prepared for you. So live your life and do something with a purpose. And if ever you end up with or without that goal, start pursuing for something new. Don’t ponder too deep and just live.

You already are successful even before you think about failures.

Life is a cycle of repeated events. That’s why it’s commonly called: the circle of life. We get to experience this life in a short time, true. But in a very little moment, we experience numerous events which teach us different lessons. Life is complex and it surely is amazing.

Memories make life worth living. We live in order to grab opportunities which will later on be in a form of achievements, disappointments, or even random adventure we’ve encountered in the past. God gave us the ability to remember in order to realize how wonderful His gift is every time we recall the things we did yesterday. Though it’s true to say that yesterday is already a history but it wouldn’t be so without today. And in turn, today wouldn’t soon be a history without tomorrow. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow are three relevant things. Their importance is all equal to each other and we have to cherish these different times of our lives.

We don’t always have the spare to time to do all the things in just one instance. If you have to say sorry to someone or thank the person you wish to show gratitude to – do it now. Priorities don’t matter if you really mean every actions and decisions you make. Same goes with loving or hating someone: love and hate are co-existent with each other. You won’t know how to love when you don’t know how it is to hate. But surely, you can love the person you hate and hate the person you once loved. What’s important is you’ve come to love that person in the best way that you can. Showing efforts is much greater than saying promising words wherein some are only empty swears.

See life in a different view every day in order to experience the different sides of it. Life has many dimensions and it’s your choice to discover all of it. The most important thing is, always remember the essence of living because nobody knows how you interpret the beauty of life except you.
