The power that failing gives – What does success mean to you? It may be different for every individual. It sure doesn’t mean anything without a great deal of failure to begin with, right? We all fail. Ask anybody who is highly successful, and they will be quick to tell you their stories of failure in a heartbeat. Stories of rags to riches to rags and super riches are stories you will only hear from entrepreneurs or those who took massive risks early on in their lives.

As I said, we all fail. In what gravity it is, on the other spectrum of it lies success. Avoiding failure is not the meaning of success. When we ride a vehicle for a long travel, we hit some bumps or holes along the way. We Also take wrong turns or sometimes fail to check the engine for leaks.

Do you know what kind person avoids these things altogether? One that doesn’t leave their driveway, or one that just starts the engine but never steps on the accelerator.

What does it mean to fail and the power failing gives? Well, it just means whether you’re going to fail “successfully” or what we call PROFITING FROM YOUR FAILURES. You see, the difference between greatness and being mediocre is usually how an individual sees mistakes. If you want to pursue the success journey, you will need to learn to fail forward.

People who are unsuccessful are usually so afraid of failure and rejection. They spend their entire lives avoiding risks or decisions that could lead to failure. They are not able to realize that success is based on their ability to fail and continue trying. Having the right attitude means failure is not fatal nor final. Nobody dies from failing. As a matter of fact, it’s the springboard to success. This is a power that failing gives. Let me explain.

Nobody highly successful view their mistakes as failures. It’s referred to as “learning experiences” or “detours” or “tuition fees”, “opportunities for growth” and other terms based on learning.

When you’re successful and think that you are, you don’t let failure get in to your head. Instead of dwelling on the negative consequences of failure, thinking of what might have been or how things haven’t worked out for them, you focus on the rewards of success. Learning from your mistakes and thinking about how you can improve yourself in your situation. Improving from failing gives power.

I want you to see failing as a learning experience Just realize that you have failed, but you are NOT a failure. Keep going.

Failure leads to maturity and improves your ways of dealing with people. Failure humbles you, kicks out pride and gives you humility—a more precious virtue.

February 1, 2021 Hans Angelo

Failure simply means there are more than one ways to accomplish a goal.

I believe that failure teaches you the virtue of patience—the ability to wait on something. Some things work only through patience, process and time.

Don’t go looking for failure, but when is comes don’t be shocked. Just tell it thank you, my friend. Move on and find out why you failed.

Failure is a better teacher than success, for it is through failure that you start learning to use your brain again.

Failure gives you the ability to think, and come up with better ideas to succeed. Although failure leaves you with much disappointment, once you recover, you develop the ability to go further than where you were before you failed.

Failure enables you to understand yourself deeper, for it is through it that you can go into isolation and learn more about yourself. Success is a poor teacher because it doesn’t keep people away from you. People who failed the most are on record as the most successful people.

Failure is like a sign post, which is easily recognizable the moment you arrive at the same spot where you failed the last time.

February 1, 2021 aldwin

Failure adds to your bag of knowledge and increases your capacity to be more persistent and resilient, through hard times. Although failure may leave you with scars, this is actually a good thing. It is a constant reminder that life is full of ups and downs, and without the downs there can be no ups.

First of all, failures teach us to estimate our powers adequately. Being successful for long makes one think naively that he or she will be always at the top. This deceptive belief occupies the mind, preventing it from further improvement. In this permanent state of euphoria, one believes he or she knows enough to continue thriving. It consequently results in overestimating one’s strength, or even degradation. None of this helps with facing current realities. In such condition it’s easy to lose control over a situation. As a result, a failure is unavoidable. But a failure is not only negative side of overconfidence.

It’s a sign that something goes wrong. It’s a push necessary for reassessment of one’s abilities. It’s a call for some measures to be taken.

Failures stimulate us to find solutions. Overcoming obstacles trains to cope with difficulties of any kind. It hardens us and forces to develop immunity to peripeteias. When taking efforts to recover from a failure, we learn how to be psychologically ready for any twists and turns of life. Being prepared, we bear tribulations lighter and arrive at a solution faster. We dwell on a defeat less and think more positively. Our mind becomes more resistant to fears and doubts. It starts concentrating on ways out, setting aside emotional aspect.

It is a food for thought. Failure is a good time for asking oneself if one is on the right track. Maybe, it is a hint to make new conclusions, or change direction. Knockouts teach to analyze cause and effect. In simple terms, they encourage to use brain at all. Some crucial issues can be invisible before you stuck on them. Once you face them, you cannot ignore them no more. They incite to thinking.

So, finally it comes out that failure is a powerful instrument for self-improvement, if used properly. We should not see it as a total loss but an invaluable life lesson. In this case it opens new possibilities and visions that can help to rise even higher than previously.
