Many would say that we must dare to succeed but dare to fail is better as it gives us better perspective. Albert Einstein once said: “Logic will take you from A to B, but imagination can take you everywhere.” But why, despite loads of information of almost everything is available online and offline, there are still many who cannot get out of poverty? Marami sa atin ang naniniwala that success comes from just being confident, good looks, educational achievements, pero marami mga tao ang nagtagumpay dahil lang sa “guts”.
Most of us fear failures rather than thinking of the glory we get by achieving our goals. Our pride to succeed should be greater than our fear. But of course, hindi naman pwedeng confidence lang dahil along the way we will have setbacks, hence this has a title: “Dare To Fail.” Kasama palagi yan sa lahat ng endeavours. You must be ready to fail. For me it is better to try and not succeed than not try at all. Without trying what’s in it for me, I may be wondering all my life: “what if?” But I rather fail than not knowing if I could have succeeded. Kase hindi talaga lahat ng attempts mo, shoot palagi. Minsan, kahit Kobe Bryant ka pa, marami ka pa ring sablay.
I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed. – Michael Jordan, NBA Superstar
I believe that the most daring people, who are not scared to fail, has the potential successful. People who made the history never had it all in first attempts. From Peter who walked on the water with Jesus, to billionaire Jack Ma who was not accepted to work in a KFC store in China, all dared to do the impossible against all odds.
What is stopping most people is: fear. Fear of failure. Palagi nilang sinasabi: “what if I fail?” But I rebut:
What if you succeed? -Don Magsino
They said that the richest soil on earth is not the Middle East where oil overflows and not America which was synonymous is The Promise Land. But it is the cemetery where many dreams, talents and gifts died along with their owners. It was Les Brown who said: “You must be ashamed to die until you have made your contributions to human kind.”
You should understand that life will not always be ready all the time where everything will be available when you start. But I like what Bon Jovi said in one of his songs: “We’ll give it a shot”
Tama ang sinabi ni Jack Ma:
“If at 35 and you’re still poor, you deserve it.”
We may have a lot of the newest disease: “excusities” but if we do not take action, we will never succeed. How would you know how far you can grow if you do not try? Even having faith on its own, is not enough. Action is the key. Without it, nothing shall be accomplished.
In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead – James 2:17
Today, start to be bold, be daring. Though you may fail, but having the taste of success should be the pinnacle of your dream. The world is filled with complainers. But what the world needs now are those who dream dreams and those who take actions to accomplish those dreams. It could be you! You only have walk in this life once. Do something great.
