Failing to experience a fulfilled life

“Failure after long perseverance is much grander than never to have a striving good enough to be called a failure.”

– George Eliot, Middlemarch

Even though failure certainly does not typically feel good, this quote reminds us that living a life in which we are striving for our goals and pursuing our passions is important. Even if we do mess up at times, it’s okay. Life is much more fulfilling when we actively pursue who we are, who we are meant to be, and the goals we have for ourselves. Living a life where we can’t fail because we don’t even try or don’t put in the effort can create for a much less satisfying life.

Live life to the fullest. Cherish the moments. Relax at times but seize the moments and seize the day. Live according to your best self.

  1. To me, failure isn’t trying.
