“Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.” Napoleon Hill
Why do we take failure as an enemy? Why are we scare to death to experience it? Many of us fear failure and try to avoid it at any cost. I know it hurts. But I also know that failure can give you the best benefits and life lessons which eventually lead you to your success.
Let me ask you a question. If I tell you with absolute confidence that if you handle to fail 2o times in a row and then will be 100% successful, would you take this deal? If yes, isn’t a time to change the perspective on failure for good?
Failure can’t become a habit tough. Otherwise, you would die inside. But it must be in your life at some point. Don’t take downfalls as an opposite of success. It is a part of any achievement in your life, whether personal or professional.
So, let’s take a look at 3 logical reasons why you should open the door to failure and learn what you need to.
1. It gives you the best life lesson
Jay-Z once said: “You learn more in failure than you ever do in success.” Well, I don’t know if you are a fan of this guy or not, but I want you to look at his success. I guess he is probably doing something right, and I cannot more agree with this quote. Failure gives you so much knowledge and real life experience like nothing else.
I believe that the problem of how we view failure is a misconception that it is some type of evil. Of course, that success tastes better but in order to get to that point, we must learn along the way so we can be successful. Remember that because you failed, you succeeded. So learn from it, understand it and use it to your advantage.
2. It pushes you to make a change
Let’s say you have a business. But your business is not running well, and you don’t know what the problem is. Failure will show you direction once you fail so you can make necessary changes. Otherwise, how would you tell what is wrong? Another example is a pain. I have learned this concept from Tony Robbins, and it is absolutely empowering. Only the biggest pain (what may be a failure) will push you to change. Why? It is because you have felt too much pain. So what do you do? You change and more than likely improve your life.
Change in life is a good thing if you go in the right direction. I believe that experience failure and making mistakes means you are doing something. You are trying to accomplish your goals and create better quality life. You can be proud of yourself.
3. It toughens you up like nothing else
Have you gone through some tough time in your life? How much did it make you stronger? How would you react if it happens again? I guess as a pro. Because you have learned and experienced it. And you make it through. Every failure will make you stronger and more prepared for what’s to come.
I think it’s time we start to see failure as part of the journey. Not accept it in our lives, only to understand that it must pass as a bad storm to see the bright sky. Learn from it, change what you need to and move on. Once you understand this concept, your perspective will shift, and you will handle failure better than anything else.
