Look Within – Jina Wallwork


If you look for your greatest strength, you will find only arrogance. If you attempt to discover your own weaknesses, then you will come to understand yourself. When you look within, there are many illusions, because you don’t hold a true perception of who you are. You haven’t tested your limitations, and without doing that, you can’t discover the truth. To risk failure is to push beyond what you believe you’re capable of achieving. Failure is a gift, because it tells us that we are living on the edge of our capabilities. It tells us that we are giving everything, and the reward is self-knowledge. Failure reveals your next step forward. When we push down those barriers, we grow beyond the skills we previously possessed. Failure is the pathway that leads to success.
