Facing Failure

train

Facing failure is
an integral part of growth.
To understand humility,
we need to accept our failures.

Survival instincts and pride
keeps us not wanting to be humble…
“survival of the fittest” myth
no weakness allowed

But what if the opposite
was true…our survival
depends on letting go?
Letting things be as they are;
there is humility in this.

Instead of trying to hide
our mistakes, let’s
own up to them, learn
from them, be humble
enough to accept them
as part of who we are.
