Dear Taichung Happiers,

What is it that makes success/failure different?

Books are our best friends; success and failure, the second best. In Great Expectations, English writer Charles Dickens (7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870), one of the greatest novelist of the Victorian era, simply yet significantly asserted “So, I must be taken as I have been made. The success is not mine, the failure is not mine, but the two together make me.” So, who are you meant to be? How do success and failure actively empower us to change our lives and the world? In short, the value from previous experiences and mistakes is the new opportunity to invent a new interest; the value from previous experiences and mistakes is the new chance to attempt a new approach; the value from previous experiences and mistakes is the new choice to meet a new movement. Mistakes and failures make us stand frozen, while perspective and prospect throw big surprises at us. On some occasions, we dance alone, really, alone, with our vision and dreams. Nevertheless, the smile of the sunshine constantly reassures us with silent messages--an intelligent dose of inspiration. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to join our host Micro in digging deeper into the knowledge and skills for moving toward life more positively.

The meaning of life is an angel settling in disguise of suffering. What were the Fantastic Four disappointed at, and what happened next? Failure is a catalyst for positive change. Suffering, mistakes, and failures are great teachers pushing us to reflect on “What are you here for? What are you going to do in your life?” Because, otherwise, we would focus only on something outside ourselves—fame, power, wealth, etc. American poet, memoirist, and civil rights activist Maya Angelou (April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014) spelled out why the suffering of defeats is inevitable yet invaluable. “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” The purpose of failure is to search for the meaning of life—the higher quality of humanity; the pursuit of meaning is the initial inspiring force in people. NBA player Jeremy Lin reveals that after everything happening out of his control, it is the deeper sense of purpose that gives him the deeper sense of focus, and he will faithfully perform the promotion of the values he believes in. Here is a heartfelt story from Jeremy Lin.

There is so much in the process itself, not always in the outcome. The irreplaceable recipe of resilience is the focus on the lessons from the mistakes or failures, not on the problem. Now, let’s check out how to cook failure into success. https://www.inc.com/lolly-daskal/7-surprising-ways-to-turn-every-failure-into-success.html Most importantly, to master the change we want to achieve, perspective is everything. Perspective precedes enlightenment. The power of prospective and prospect conquers all. Looking forward to this film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cta2aGY7yyI


Laugh, I tell you
And you will turn back
The hands of time.

Smile, I tell you
And you will reflect
The face of the divine.

Sing, I tell you
And all the angels will sing with you!

Cry, I tell you
And the reflections found in your pool of tears -
Will remind you of the lessons of today and yesterday
To guide you through the fears of tomorrow.

When life is an exhibition of experiments, and you are the curator....... What to include and what not to include in this exhibition? If the Silver Surfer and Iron Man team up, they wouldn’t just be allies--they'd be alloys? How many “experiments” do you do every day? Thomas A. Edison, the “curator”, interpreted failures differently. “I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.” Also, take a quick peek inside these failure and success experiments by Dyson.
http://nymag.com/vindicated/2016/11/james-dyson-on-5-126-vacuums-that-didnt-work-and-1-that-did.html Whatever your reason to improve your life, however you do to make a difference in the world, whenever a window closed, a door opens for you, for your life purpose, indeed. For sure, every entrepreneurship, every lifestyle, every breath you inhale or exhale, is an experiment. Start every experiment with your why, your life purpose. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRaqe9M2DYc Turn the suffering, the failures into what we will be most thankful for. We should sometimes overestimate ourselves to aim high enough—despite the pain of hardship and failures, focus on what we should do and do a variety of “experiments”, what will re-surface is the positive proof of what we can do. Precisely, it is where the magic always comes out of. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1dLGz57KEQ

Do you define success and failure for yourself or for others? "Behind every successful man, you'll find a woman who has nothing to wear." No? Why do you love your big dreams? Be yourself--dreams are powerful things--if you have true love for your big dreams, your faith springs from this love. Trust your gut. Get internal sense. Compose the symphonic variations--listen carefully to what the world is saying, but make decisions by yourself. Take actions until we feel differently. Be brave to be yourself, to believe in yourself, and to re-define your uniqueness. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sABv1CWetY Again, life is all about chances and choices. Be yourself. Be courageous to be vulnerable. Be aware of how we say to ourselves to beat self-doubt. Only when we practice integrated thinking and visualize our goals and prospect, can we communicate with ourselves with a growth mindset. https://www.forbes.com/sites/rajeevpeshawaria/2015/07/23/integrated-thinking/#94aa61d2fccf Above all, be a believer. The purpose of failure is to unfold more possibilities and to unlock the hero within everyone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyCmCULlgHg

Where there is love, there is luminosity. How deep is your love for your passion and purpose? When the meaning is bigger than the suffering, or the failures, the tired eyes of the Sun rest sweetly on us--the return will be stronger in multiple aspects. Always remember it is love that gifts us the ability to create the world around us. Therefore, give out love, give out light, and give out creative energies as possible as we can. How? “Surround yourself with people that reflect who you want to be and how you want to feel, energies are contagious.” That is what we come here for! Join us. Thanks!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhzi7Shi2H0


With Gratitude,
