Life is an experiment

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What if they are a little coarse and you may get your coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail and get rolled in the dirt once or twice? Up again, you shall never be afraid of a tumble.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

So very true, isn't it? I read this quote and realized that it is actually a fact. Yes, life is an experiment. No one knows what it has in store for us. We come into this world knowing nothing. That first step we took was an experiment. We try things and fail. We keep trying and then someday we succeed. Successful experiments do boost your morale. However, it is how we react to our failed experiments that test our mettle. In either case, it is a learning experience for us.

Look around and you will find many people who didn’t have the resources or the expertise to deliver. Yet, with sheer persistence and their willingness to experiment, they triumphed. Life will throw many challenges towards you. It is how you face them that will decide your fate. The challenges may be unique and so has to be your reaction to those challenges.

We can never be sure about the outcome of an experiment. To experiment is in our hands, the result of that experiment is something we can only speculate. The most important thing is to keep experimenting and learning from those experiments. Success or failure, let us accept whatever comes our way. Just keep moving forward with life. One set back should not halt our journey. Let us keep treading until the Almighty decides to end our journey. Let us keep faith and keep a positive outlook towards life.
