Failure is as normal as the victory, and just the way you'd enjoy your victory, you should be able to embrace failure.
Whatever you are doing right now, no matter at what point of time or whether you are able to intuit the purpose of life, there is one thing you are endeavoring all the time, and that is SUCCESS. It is the desire to be successful in life is what you badly want and hence, you bring changes in life, you break the rules, you try new things, you take opportunities and many more. These are the basic ways that you'd follow in order to become successful, wouldn't you?
But, success is something that does not come easy to all, even when they try their hardest. How many times have you tried achieving something, and failed? Plenty, right? If not plenty, then at least once in a lifetime you might have failed in life, that pushed you in doing everything correctly today. Failure is as normal as the victory, and just the way you'd enjoy your victory, you should be able to embrace failure. It can only happen when you are clear about a simple fact of life, which is the art of Adaptation.
It is a challenging task to learn, as adapting things and changing with time, take a lot of patience, courage, determination, and understanding. If only you are able to take what life throws at you positively, you would be able to enjoy life being a successful person. Success, however, does not always mean to have a good career but can be seen with respect to anything that you want to achieve. “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.”― Albert Einstein
For an example, if you want to travel the world, and know about different cultures, and languages- if you want to know what are the issues people go through or what is their staple diet, you will only be able to learn all that, if you are comfortable leaving your congenial life, and adapting the life of the city, place, and people. If you are able to adapt the food, clothes, language barrier, you will be looked up as someone of their own. Therefore, in front of your eyes, your trip to the other land will be considered as successful.
The same example can allude to the life you are living. Your life is a journey, which is conceived of many big, small and important moments and lessons. You can only be able to taste success if you have the wisdom that educates you the importance of change. “Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” ― Lao Tzu
Playing safe in the game of life might sound comforting, but do you think you could get what you want if you stayed in one place, doing the same things over and over again? Everything about your life changes once you choose to make a shift- emotionally, physically and mentally you train yourself to adapt things that didn't work out your way, and things that worked out how you wanted to. Honestly adapting to all kinds of emotions you feel is what pushes you forward in life. The day you find yourself feeling threatened by sadness, failure, hurt, and unhappiness is the day when you will find hard conforming. “If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got.” ― James P. Lewis
Therefore, it is up to you, what you choose- to follow the pack and play it safe or venture on the journey alone taking risks, breaking rules and winning challenges by adapting to whatever life throws at you. Without change, you will never be able to grow, learn new things, and experience life with its extremities. “It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow, and transform.” ― Roy T. Bennett
Once you start adapting to things in life, you free yourself from any bounded thoughts, inhibitions and are always prepared to experience any failure with positivity. Imagine the strength you will have if you do not let any failure, discomfort, and tragedies shake you. Success will come after you, without testing your patience in situations where most people might lose it.
