Our greatest glory is not in never failing but in rising up every time we fail/fall because what lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Everyone has inside a piece of good news that we do not know how great we can be;
Failure is a part of life. If you donít fail, you donít learn. If you donít learn, you will never change.
 how much we can love; what we can accomplish and what our potential is. However, the greatest mistake we can make in life is to continually be afraid of mistake or failure. Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Life is like riding a bicycle: to keep our balance we must keep moving.

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.- Og Mandino
Those who have been in rehab facilities learn about creating character: that we must know where we come from, how we can fall down in life and how we can overcome things to make ourselves stronger. In the midst of winter, I found that there is within us, an invincible summer that makes us happy. I have learned that no matter how hard the world pushes against us, within us, there is something stronger, something better, pushing right back.

 I have also learned that the power of the principle of moving forward eventually gives us confidence when we look back and see what we have done and accomplished in life. Is it not that when we face our face to the sun, the shadows fall behing us? So every experience in our life is being orchestrated to teach us something we need to know to move forward.

We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through our tragedies and challenges and to help each other more through the many painful episodes of our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of our wound, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds, the strength to overcome them and the lessons that we are meant to receive through them. Wounds are the means to receive through them. Wounds are the means through which we enter the hearts of other people. They are meant to teach us to become compassionate and wise.
