Defeat, crisis, and failure are the birthplace of spiritual renewal and development. Despair signals where one is in relation to one’s goal and can be overcome when we learn how to turn to a higher, external force for new power. Everything we have from nature is good and correct. Children can be taught how to have a correct attitude toward failure through a good example and environment. Humans are social beings and we can spiritually develop when learn how to depend on and give to others.
