# 43. Truth Be Told


Proverbs 24:6
"for by wise guidance you can wage your war, and in abundance of counselors there is victory."

The progress we failed to make, the gains in business we failed to reach, the weight we failed to lose (just to list a few failures) is a direct result of factors which we could have controlled. While, there are circumstances that are beyond our control sometimes, all too often we fall prey to the "helpless" syndrome by default. It would be more productive if we simply raised our hands and admitted "the problem was me."

It's really not as negative as it sounds. No need to get depressed about what didn't happen or failed to work. Instead, accept /take responsibility (ability-to-respond) and plan for success. I'll say that again, "plan for success." You see, failure can teach us how to be successful, if we listen to its' painful lessons. 

Failure is not biased, racist or sexist. It doesn't care whether you are rich or poor either. It pounces on the unprepared, uninspired and the uninformed. It's merciless, emotionless and indifferent to our personal situation. It doesn't smile when we crash, it's doesn't blog about us either. Failure does what it does - it reminds us we didn't do something right, well enough or long enough. Just like success, failure is planned. To quote Benjamin Franklin, "if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail."
