Something I need to be reminded of is that failures are part of success. They go hand in hand. It's hard to stomach though because when you are trying hard to reach your goals you start to find more and more failures will come your way. You deal with more problems than the average person. You start to wonder "Why is my life so hard?" and "Why does this have to be so damn difficult?". It's because you are trying to be something bigger than you are. This pain is part of growth. You learn through your mistakes. Those with success didn't just have it handed to them. They EARNED IT. You will earn it too every time you pick yourself up and try again. It's that spark in you that won't give up. It's that spark that will guarantee success because eventually you WILL SUCCEED. It's the one that doesn't give up that gets what they want. It's when you keep on going when everyone else has wussed out.
Don't worry about your competition. Don't worry about what everyone else is doing. Keep your eyes on your goal and learn through your failures. This is where you learn to be humble. This is when you learn that you are forever a student of life and you will always have something else to learn. You NEVER stop learning and growing.
