There’s a story of a king, who, overcome by the pressures of his position, asked a sage the secret of that sage’s serenity. The sage gave him a gift, a ring with an inscription on it. It turned out to be the king’s greatest treasure.
After the king glanced at the ring, he would exhibit great wisdom.
The secret of the ring? It was inscribed with the words “It will pass”.
People who personalize failure believe that the problem they’re in now is permanent. It isn’t. everything passes…pain, sorrow, happiness and joy.
This realization is empowers the achiever by understanding that failure will always be temporary
