Failure is ALWAYS an Option

May 12, 2010

I’m sure you’ve heard it said that failure is not an option. False. Failure is most definitely always an option. Where did this crazy notion against failure start? My guess…conspiracy. The government is trying to keep you from failing, which is keeping you from the fruitfulness you are capable of attaining. Perhaps the most useful tool mankind has, failure is for you. Better than our intellect, strength, endurance, and sharp wit. Failure is the KEY to mankinds resilience. Without persistent failure, how could we show the universe our worth? It would be impossible!



Both of these 7 letter words add up to 14 letters. They often have more to do with each other than at first glance. Most people ask themselves. “How did I fail to achieve success?” The real question is “How did you succeed in achieving failure?”  Failure is the missing piece! Some people just have no idea how to fail, that is what this post is for. I want you to want to fail. I have had success at many things in life, but nothing brings me more joy than simple failure. Here is a small list of ways you can fail and reap the bountiful benefit:

Failure to cook a delicious dinner, so you have to eat P.F. Changs.

Failure to mow the lawn, so a stranger from the city does it for you.

Failure to park in an authorized zone, so someone else moves your car for you.

Failure to charge your phone last night, so no one will bother you today.

Failure to study for a test, so you get to take it again next semester.

Next time life throws you to the ground, stay down there and find that lost contact you’ve been missing. Say it with me, “Failure is my friend”

    This worries me a little. Did you write this before or after your final today?
