“My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.” ~Mahatma Gandhi quotes
Yesterday I had the good fortune of finding the JK Rowling's speech to Harvard graduates. (JK Rowling: The fringe benefits of failure Video on TED.com) In her warm, funny speech she looked back at the time in her life where she was having her biggest failures. The times when she learned, was humbled and kept writing kept going for her goals.
I hope you never have to overcome the levels of poverty I have. I do hope that you fail. It is how you find out who you are and what you have when everything else it gone. It is not something to fear. It is something to learn from to become better inspite of. Is this the last of my failures? Most likely, this is just the beginning. I know there are many lessons for me still to learn and I embrace them.
