I have decided to approach this topic from a different angle – using acrostics, but not in the conventional sense as a poem.
The word failure:
F = fear of the known, unknown, or outcome. This may be followed by the fight or flight syndrome
A = attitude – both to the perceived 'failure' & our reaction
I = ignorance to the situation happening around us; & our 'inability' to cope
L = lack of both knowledge & a belief in oneself.
U = umbrage or a feeling of being over shadowed
R = reaction, how we react is important .
E = energy – how much energy to we give to the negatives which can lead us to rock bottom
empathy – are we looking for this from others to make ourselves feel better
Failure can be turned into success, using the same letters, but more positivity. Try rewriting it as:
F = focus – what we focus on expands, therefore if we focus on the positives, we will move forward
A = ability to try again & succeed
I = I can, I will & I have
L = love, both for oneself & what lessons have been learnt along the way
U = up – the only way is up
understanding -what went wrong & how to fix it
R = respect for oneself
E = enthusiasm, to keep trying to improve.
If we accept failure as a stepping stone, a learning curve or simply as part of life; we have learnt that without failure, there is no success.
