“Failure” equals “Value”
Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes. Genuine ignorance is profitable because it is likely to be accompanied by humility, curiosity, and open-mindedness; whereas ability to repeat catch-phrases, cant terms, familiar propositions, gives the conceit of learning and coats the mind with varnish waterproof to new ideas. -John Dewey
I have failed not just once but quite a number of times in my different ventures in life like businesses and relationship.
The feeling that you want to do great in the business you started and hoping that it will bring you success. Even if you gave all you got but in the end you… failed.
The feeling that you know all the best ways to make it work and believing that you can make it happen. Even if you gave all your effort but at one moment you realized… this is not what you expect it to be.
Have you ever felt so scared of making a mistake or failing again that you decide not to do what you wanted to do?
So many of us miss out on so many great opportunities, because we’re scared of the things that might go wrong. We let the fear of failure hold us back.
Fear of failure that can keep us from achieving our dreams. The fear of failure is perhaps the strongest force holding us below our potential. It has a crippling effect, but it doesn’t have to remain that way. It can only have this effect if we let it.
If you read a story about a successful person or a successful company I guarantee there will have been multiple failures.
More often than not, it’s our failures that lead us to our successes.
Do not be afraid to fail because some of the vital lessons of success cannot be taught. They can only be experienced. Even if you find someone to teach you, it may not make much meaning to you until you are in the situation and it will be clear to you.
If you are not afraid to fail, you will be able to get anything especially leveraging on your experience in failure!
Look at “fear” or “failure” as “value” instead.
Keep moving, fail and move on to success!
