From the rubble


From the rubble of yesterday’s failure can arise the glory of tomorrow’s success.” #bgdtcoaching.

From the rubble of a so-called ‘learning experience’ we can extract the key element required to reach an objective. It goes without saying we don’t need a negative situation for something good to emerge. However, it does seem oftentimes success is the result of a previously failed endeavour.

Possibly at the time of the initial setback we were unable to think such a thought. We may have been upset and feeling dejected by our lack of triumph. With hindsight it becomes easy to see how our subsequent victory sprang from the rubble.

Having the courage to trust in our ability pays off over time, albeit with a timescale not always aligned to our schedule. From the rubble of past efforts many of today’s achievements surround us.

Perhaps by remembering the determination we showed in the past to reach where we are now we are strengthened to continue along our chosen way, being and living according to our heart.

Thanks for reading this ‘From the rubble‘ post.
