“I Never Lose. Either I Win or I Learn.” – Nelson Mandela

Written for and Published in The Seeds 4 Life

Uncertainties may live in our trying; the uncertainty of the outcome, of our abilities, or even of our decision to try at something.

Many of us try, fall, get back up, dust ourselves off, and try again. Many of us try, fall and stay there for a little while; wondering if it is even worth to try again. But we try again – we may fail or we may succeed. The uncertainty remains, but there is a gift waiting to be accepted – the lesson.

The lesson is the certainty in the trying. It is the help line we pick up when we fall to help us in trying again. It is the bumper sticker we can add to the collections of all the others we have been gifted over the years, to remind us the value of our life is in our journey and how we travel it.

Try, fail, get back up, try again, we may succeed, we may fall again. But pick up the lesson, carry it with you and allow it to be the friend you need when you are looking at the face of uncertainty.

Listen as it whispers to you, “I am here to help you grow, you will never lose. So let’s try again.” Onward!
