Failure Has Been My Greatest Blessing

What is the issue?
Joshua Munoz

It is not about how many times you fail, it’s about how many times you get back up that matters.

Failure ain’t easy. It never is.

But it is always worth it.

Success starts out quiet. Almost like a whisper.

Because success is not something that happens overnight. It is built day after day. Month after month. Year after year.

My own success has never come easy.

It came at the expense of my ego.

Because there are two parts to being successful that many people never talk about.

1.Success is defined by the person

2.Success comes at the expense of the ego

And I’m talking about true success, at least in my terms.

So let’s take a quick moment and talk about those terms.

Success to me is not money or fame, but the journey. If I wake up each day happy, focused, and alive, then I am successful.

Don’t get me wrong, the money I earn, the people I heal, and the lives I influence are crucial to my journey, but they are parts of my journey.

The journey is the success. Who I become along the way to my goals and destinations creates my success.

But without failure, I would never realize what these successes are.

I would not appreciate them to the incredible degree that I do.

I would be blind to their beauty.

I would be blind to the magnificence of the people I connect with without first feeling pain in my heart and soul.

Failure is necessary.

It’s true.

It is not about how many times you fail, it’s about how many times you get back up that matters.
