If you fail, it won’t be because you didn’t try.
The real journey to success is lined with failure.
If you lose it won’t be because you didn’t want to win. The mind of a winner is already thinking about the next challenge.
If you fall down it won’t be because you weren’t standing tall and sure footed. The important thing is always get back up and adjust your stance.
If you don’t finish first in the race it won’t be because you didn’t run fast enough. It means that someone ran faster than you…this time!
If you weep because you lost someone you loved dearly, it won’t be because you lost faith in God. The more you love the more you feel the pain of loss. Having wept, means having loved so deeply and your faith is strong.
If you stop and change direction, it won’t be because you didn’t know where you were going. It is because, like a ship on the ocean, one must always adjust sails to avoid the storms. The voyage may be longer but the destination will be the same.
If you are proud of yourself it won’t be because you are egotistical and self centered. It means that you have chosen to live by higher standards than many.
You see my friend, it won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.
