Quote from The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (Judi Dench)

 

I typically enjoy watching episodes of Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday. Recently she interviewed author Gary Zukav in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the release of his book Seat of the Soul. It’s been added to my ever-growing reading list.

Here’s a snippet of the interview.

Gary: What is failure? We can’t possibly know what failure is.

Oprah: Some people think they do.

Gary: Most people think they do but that’s because they’re judging how they feel their lives should be and what they need to be a success. Who is to say what’s a success or what’s a failure? Do your best. Trust. Relax. Do your best. Enjoy yourself.

Gary’s advice reminds me of that quote by Audre Lorde (thanks to The Best Man) and Paul’s advice against comparing oneself to others (2 Corinthians 10:12).

If you’d like more of the interview you’ll find it here.

Onward to victory people.*
