When things don’t work out the way that we want them to we don’t say that we have failed we say at least we have tried. So many people get discouraged at failure, whereas, we think that focusing on the outcome is only part of the story. If you always focus on the outcome then you are less likely to to try, to try new things and to succeed. So try something new and adventurous each day. That will definitely lengthen your sense of how long your life is.
