A Sophisticate is a Failure

"Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail their failure must be a but a challenge to others" Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart was the most notable female aviator in history. She was one of the great heroes for women of the 20th Century. In May 1932 she became the  first female to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. In
 her attempt and declaration to fly around the world she failed. She did not become the first female to fly around the world and sadly, died trying.

No one then or now would refer to Amelia Earhart as a failure.

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games, 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed" Michael Jordan


Success is merely the finished product or an end result of numerous failed attempts. Failure is the impetus to success. Without failure there can be no success. Some of the most successful people failed at first (50 Famously Successful People who Failed at First) like Walt Disney, Bill Gates, Thomas Edison, and Oprah Winfrey to name a few.

"Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat" Theodore Roosevelt

Why is a Sophisticate a failure? A Sophisticate is a failure because sometimes she stumbles, fails, makes mistakes due to the fact since she a human being and therefore not perfect. (A Sophisticate is Imperfect). Each failure teaches her valuable lessons for the future. 

A Sophisticate keeps going regardless of failure. Failure is not only an event but a decision. Whether it be in the same direction or not, a Sophisticate decides to keep going. 

"Failure is an event, not a person" Zig Ziglar 

In fact, it is the failure for a Sophisticate that teaches her about her own humanity, and teaches her humility. That humility is what teaches her respect and to have empathy for other people.  Her failure also  demonstrates where her limitations exist. The act of failing demonstrates for her the areas where she needs to improve. 

"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up" Thomas A. Edison

Failure exposes her weaknesses and increases her ambition to win.
A Sophisticate doesn't always win. She always tries to win.  
The difference between a Sophisticate and everyone else? She tries. 

"I have not failed. I've found 10,000 ways that won't work" Thomas Edison 

When a Sophisticate fails, she feels has lost everything. Regardless of whether that is truly the case that is the point when she has nothing to lose (A Sophisticate Gone Bad) and her fearlessness begins. That doesn't mean a Sophisticate fails just to become fearless. In every endeavor that she attempts, she realizes that sometimes the outcome is good and sometimes it is bad. Like in life where she hopes for the best and prepares for the worst. A Sophisticate works hard to be the best regardless of the worst happening to her.

"Nothing fails like success" Stephen R. Covey

There is nothing like failure to give a Sophisticate the opportunity to succeed. In the end, a Sophisticate is a failure because she never gives up she keeps moving forward in whatever direction the lesson has taught her to move in and tries her best. In the end a Sophisticate is a failure because she is a success.  ;D
