The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.
Randy Pausch – The Last Lecture
When it comes to success and achievement of goals, failing is one of the biggest catalysts. In reference to knocking down the brick walls in our life, many think of a physical action. And action is the ONLY thing to achieve when it comes down to it.
But the mindset – the attitude – the perspective of viewing failing as a learning experience separates the GREATS from the average – the mediocre.
We all have the power to knock down brick walls in our life. We all decide – we all have the choice – to decide to learn from failures. Learning happens EVERY day when you adopt this mentality towards life, allowing an exciting and inspiring existence.
