failure is an option

failure is an option

 

the last two and half years of my life

i’ve worked at a telemarketing place

asking for money

donations

been told i could be a salesman

 

they considered me good at what i did

with a success rate of thirty-ish percent

 

that means

seventy-ish percent of the time

i failed

 

the biggest lesson i learned from there

aside from strangers being complete and utter assholes

is that of humility

 

we are all going to fall down

a lot

at one point or another

 

it’s gonna happen

so buck up

and brace for impact

because it’s gonna be a bumpy ride

 

i am a walking failure

daily

 

but this does not mean i don’t succeed

daily

 

ten-ish percent of the time

maybe

give or take a couple percents

 

i never ignore my success

it’s what matters most

because it makes this whole process worth it
