🌿Everyone fails at something...everyone.
🌿In my prerequisites, I started failing microbiology when my dad got cancer. I had to drop the class and retake it.
🌿In my first semester of nursing school, I failed VITALS checkoff. I made the mistake of only doing one form of patient verification.
🌿I cried and I actually questioned if I should even keep going.
✨But I never made that mistake again...
🌿Each time I failed, I would have a good cry and then I pushed myself to do better.
🌿Failure can motivate us to work harder and move forward.
🌿We do not grow unless we try something new. People that are successful fail a lot, but it's only because they tried and tried AGAIN.
🌿One of my teachers even once told me, "Amanda, you work hard but are not very smart. I would rather have a smart surgeon, than one who works hard."
🌿It angered every being inside of me. It pushed me throughout nursing school to PROVE THEM WRONG.
🌿All the failure, hate, and pain became my motivators to succeed.
🌿Next time you fail, do not be afraid. This is what you need to evolve.
✨I hope this gives you some comfort today!
