1. "There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be."John Lennon wrote those words. And they're as true today as they were in 1967. It can be hard to accept, especially if you want to succeed more than anything in the world. But the truth of the matter is that you're right where you should be. Think about it. Would life make sense if you were anywhere other than the place your decisions and circumstances have led you? That doesn't mean your present location is where you're meant to be forever. When it's time to succeed and move on to greener pastures, you'll make it there – as long as you keep pushing.
2. The fact that you've failed will make your eventual success so much sweeter.
"Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty..." – Theodore RooseveltThere's a reason super-rich, successful people tend to leave the bulk of their wealth to someone other than their children. They know the value of hard work, and they know that riches bring very little satisfaction in the absence of it. That rings true for just about anything worth having in life – from a stable relationship to a good job. It all requires work and overcoming failure along the way is simply part of that work.
