Be at peace knowing everything happens for a reason and one day you will realise why.
“Someday, everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason.”
Sometimes when things are falling apart they may actually be falling into place.
Tough times in our life teach us lessons.
“Stars can’t shine without darkness.”
Keep moving forward.
“Don’t look back, you’re not going that way.”
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
Whatever we endure, prepares us for the future.
“Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.”
It’s all about perspective.
“I didn’t fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.”
Failure doesn’t exist, you get something out of everything, one of the best? A lesson learnt.
“There are no failures – just experiences and your reactions to them.”
“Don’t be discouraged by a failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, in as much as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid.”
Turn your wounds into wisdom.
You are resilient.
Tough times don’t last. Tough people do.
