Successes and failure are one and the same. However, when a desired outcome happens, as a result of our decision, we quickly label it a success; when something bad happens, we label it a failure.
Though we may believe it, we are hardly qualified from distinguishing a success from a failure. A “failure” can bring a valuable lesson, and a “success” can bring us one step further down a harmful path.
The big picture is really BIG; so big that we really aren’t capable of seeing what our decisions will bring us, long-term.
Put down your judgements, roll with the punches, and just do the best you can do.
