Word of the Day: Failure

Word of the Day:  Failure

In a lifetime of striving to fulfill ourselves, our efforts do not always meet with resounding success.  But what appears to the world as failure does not have to be that for us.  If we start up a shoe store and soon close it and go bankrupt, have we failed?  To others it might seem so, but that is a simplistic reading of the situation.  We have probably learned a whole lot about setting up shop, and so our efforts contribute to our growth.  If we have learned, we have not failed.  Enjoying the process ensures that no matter the outcome, we’ll not be deterred in future efforts.

On this day, I will take five minutes to remember that all my past endeavors–even if I have committed mistakes while implementing them– have been success; they have given me valuable experience for myself and experience that I can pass on to other African-Americans.
