Life Lesson On Success~~~Susie Austin

“The difference between school and life?

 In school, you’re taught a lesson

and then given a test.

In life, you’re given a test

that teaches you a lesson.”

Tom Bodett


Have you ever felt you have been tested or have you learned any good life lessons lately? I certainly believe we all have lessons to learn on this incredible journey we are on.  


How do we handle failure? In my opinion there is no failure, because in every venture, we learn something. The only failure is in not recognizing this. The more I think about it the more I don’t even like the word failure. It is referred to as not meeting the general objective or even worse it may be considered the opposite of success.  Success can be the achievement of a goal, not giving up, moving forward with life, and much more.


The sad thing is when people don’t try because they are afraid of failure, and what if they try and do not succeed wouldn’t this be better than not trying at all? How many times do you think it took Thomas Edison to invent the light bulb? What if Bret Favre had given up football after high school or Adam Sandler quit acting?


Today is a good time to look at your life, decide what you want and move forward without fear. Learn something everyday, enjoy the journey, never fear success, and do not have failure in your vocabulary.
