My Failure Resume – Ankur Warikoo

I am extremely grateful to be where I am in life. But there were several moments when I wasn’t.

It is so easy for us to take our failures seriously and consider them the end of the road. I am the biggest proof that self-doubt exists, and I am equally the best proof that one can overcome it – it’s just a battle that never stops.

Inspired by Johannes HausHofer’s CV of Failures, I share mine below. With the hope that people realize their problems and challenges are similar to everyone else’s. What may be different is the reaction to it. Or their acceptance in the first place.

At the end of the day, when you undress yourself, the scars tell a story that only you know of

Don’t wish for more scars

But be surely aware of the ones you have

Perhaps one day you will be proud of them

Perhaps one day you will realize they weren’t even scars
