“Failure is not the opposite of success, it is part of success.” – Unknown
This past week England has experienced a lot of emotions, with Frank Skinners ‘It’s coming home’ blaring all round, creating a sense of community and then the week coming to a head with the Euro 2020 penalties not going quite the way we hoped; causing a catastrophic chain reaction.
Funnily enough, some fans must be reminded that Sancho, Saka and Rashford are young men, trying and failing like the rest of us. Their effort was so admirable and knowing they will get back up there and try again is inspiring!
The message to remember for today is:
Don’t be deterred by failure; redefine failure.
Make failure work for you; for it is apart of the journey.
- Be willing to learn from it
- Tackle it head on
- Grow from it
- Try again.
Winston Churchill once said “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”
If you can take anything from Sundays Match, take away the thought that no matter how many times you fail, you are another step closer to success; it is all a learning experience to better yourself – Disregard what other people think (especially if its not supportive) as the only important opinion, is your own and your loved ones.
The silver lining of this situation is the fact that by people expressing their thoughts (passionately to say the least) a conversation and change is initiating; paving the way for holistic improvement within society. The conversations and awareness built is creating a platform that will continue to inspire and empower others to fight for what is right. Remember: You can achieve anything but not everything alone – but if we all have the right mindset to make a difference, anything and everything is possible.
So, what else can we take away from this experience?
