There are two kinds of failures: those who thought and never did, and those who did and never thought.

Accept it

You can find great peace in acceptance. When you’re not consumed with proving one thing or opposing another, you’re free to create real value.

A few issues are clearly worth fighting for, and some others are necessary to fight against. Most, however, you can simply accept, and quickly enable yourself to move forward.

There will always be plenty of things you don’t agree with. But that doesn’t mean you have to drain all your energy by being disagreeable or miserable.

Take a deep breath, and accept it. You don’t have to agree with it, or like it, or even think about it any more.

Accept it, and then you can devote your full attention to what you really care about. Accept it, and save yourself the pain of resentment, of retribution, of hostility.

Don’t fight those useless battles that will never produce a winner. Accept what has happened, what has been said, what is, and free yourself to make the very best of it.

— Ralph Marston
