“Failures are unavoidable unless you start living so vigilantly, that you automatically prevent living and hence, have already failed.”
- In the pit of the dark, there lurked a spark
- The abyss of nothingness lead to explosions of mess
- The saints seemed gone, devotion screamed till dawn
- The fall was hard, tatters sprawled too far apart
- The sewing was tough, so she let it all muck
- The scrolls of ruins shone in glorified smiles
- They denied that life that yeaned for light
- Mystic was summoned to answer the shrills
- That caused roars in the oceans of stills
- On his command, rubbles joined palms
- Constructed a shrine, there… breathed divine
- Space was dark, became limitless and vast
- Lapping flames of losses, lit a lamp divine
- From the debris of grave, sprouted the creation of a new life
- Yoga is the tool that he gave to live… not merely survive…
In the age where Success is celebrated, “Failure” cannot be ostracized for it’s a core tool to assist one’s progress.
It is impossible to fail at some attempt or some point in life. “Failure” has its own “Rewards,” however much it rips away what you have safely reposed in the closet of your life. Each one of us has experienced failures of light and deep intensity, perhaps uncountable times, some of which very well may have altered the course of our lives. We all are very well acquainted with it and have a deep association of “loss” with failures. Sure, there is loss around it; however, there may be significant “benefits” that we often do not ponder over.
There are innumerable ways in which strongest and most talented people sometimes fail and produce inexplicable reactions under the conditions of brutal stress. We as “humans” falter badly under pressure and stress of countless forms and that may culminate into a sense of losing; losing anything from a match to money to relationship to loved one to health to job. In the moments of feeling terrible loss, human system may turn over upside down producing adrenaline rush and showers of reactions. One may seem like a different person and act against every suggested response. Much study has been carried out in the field of psychology about what happens when a human mind takes the whipping of “sense of loss-of-everything” and recruits the condition of extreme stress.
In such moments, you may be unrecognizable! You may not be equipped with a volley of appropriate responses and your eyes may witness your body or mind doing something strange or reacting in the ways previously unknown-to-you. This is natural as you do not know what part and which system-of-mind is controlling you. These are psychological reactions much in light of study and there is a range of terminologies for such reactions; Emotional Hijacking being one. Instead of going back to the lessons you have learned so far, your mind may give you a blank slate to write a new reaction. This is normal. We as humans are not equipped with automated and programmed reactions to sense of loss. It comes with time and experience and as they say “Life.”
What happens then? Does failure speak of who you are and how you think? Are you fundamentally a weak person for your reactions? Should you always be prepared and live very cautiously? How does failure reward you?
you to take on to greater tasks.
Failure is one of the principal teachers about the realities of life just as life itself is. It is no fun, and can lead you into periods of brooding and sense of losing, however, the payback is that it is transitory and leaves behind a sack full of knowledge and higher wisdom that no manuscript in the world could possibly provide. On introspection, you re-cycle reactions and produce a strategy of “wiser responses.” This sets you into bolstering your spirit and polishing your core and the process continues. Failure has a deep potential to direct your life to a much superior quality if you recognize that the challenges are empowering you to take on to greater tasks.
Failures are unavoidable unless you start living so vigilantly, that you automatically prevent living and hence, have already failed.
Failure can allow a deep state of relaxation to reflect upon what really matters to you and tear apart the most inessential things, people and habits from your life. They are the mirrors that reflect the reality of people and environment around you.
Failure can drag you into powerful states of creativity and imagination as you focus back to your dreams with even greater strength that your mind and heart has attained by the experience of attempting to succeed. It facilitates you to re-discover yourself, your will, your dreams, your goals and ideas and helps you re-engineer yourself to becoming an epic character.
Failure eventually brings you to where you belong!
Reaction to a stressful situation is not the indicator of fundamental personality of an individual as reactions are based on the structural complexity of the situations the person is gripped in. With the sense of loss, something inside of a person breaks and brings out the unfathomable reaction.
Truly noteworthy are the ones who get back up and control the wheels and take responsibility. Great visionaries, leaders and intellectuals of the world have been smeared with failures at some point in their lives. They are who they are for the resilience to re-set and re-start and walk on. Failure and stress are only transient phases of life that come uninvited only to take you to higher dimensions of life. It is not failing that speaks of your true personality, it is the strength and the foundation you build upon it and tread on that cultivate a remarkable and beautiful person in you.
Is it truly that you have failed or progressed?
I heard somewhere in some movie:
“For those who fight for it, life has a flavour the sheltered do not know. You have all the weapons! Now fight!”
