My daughter was sitting with a sad face. She was almost into tears. I asked her what happened and she started crying saying, I have been trying to make this block piece and it’s just not happening. I hugged her and she wanted me to put it together for her. And no! So I asked her whenever it’s not coming out right, did you try thinking that how would you do it next time? Did you think that what went wrong? She nodded. She explained, how every time it was better than last time but still it was not coming out right. But is it improving and she got some light in her eyes? Still, she was a little restless and said I am tired! And you have a right to be tired. But instead of crying, do it tomorrow. If you really want it right, do it. If you do not want it, then anyway do not get disheartened. IS it about you getting it right or the ego of not being able to do it? Or you actually doing it? If it is about ego, you never wanted it, you just wanted your ego to be satisfied. Then anyway, you will get disheartened and you will cry and scream. If you really want it, you simply try it and try it again. Every time, you will learn better and you will rise better. She sat again and after 2-3 trials, she made it. She was happy and a winner this time.
Failure is the teacher, that teaches us how to it better next time and find success. Either we learn and progress or we give up and complain. It’s up to us, how we look at it.
