“Failure is not falling down but refusing to get up.” – Robert A. Schuller
Failure is not a “happy” word. Definitely not for many of us out there! It’s hard to accept failures (any kind) as we grow up; because now we see them as our major weaknesses and therefore try to hide it from everyone. I’ve seen that “being a failure” has lot to do with social acceptance like; “if you fail, you’ll be denied of the opportunities. You’ll be marked as incapable and inefficient.” But do you think so too?
Then let me tell you, “I failed a lot and still do; but with each failure, I know I’m getting closer to my success.” The word failure is a powerful key in making your efforts more rewarding, because failure is life’s greatest teacher. It helps you to push past your fears and limitations. It makes you go deep down inside and find possibilities, to fight with everything you’ve got, to use your every last drop of energy left within you, and make your effort a success!
Rejections and failures are inevitable, but if you’re willing to keep trying, keep learning, and keep growing; you’ll definitely succeed.
These are some of the few reasons why I think it is okay to fail:
- You learn- Next time you meet any kind of failure in your life; ask yourself this question: “what can I learn from this situation?”
- You become stronger- You tried hard, gave your best and still failed in getting the desired result. So you get more confident about your next approach. You try again with a new level of energy and confidence.
- Failure drives us to change- We try and try and fail again. But we try again without losing eagerness. That’s what makes us different than we were.
- It makes you humble and more patient as a person- Accepting failure as a lesson is one of the most important things I have ever learned. When we accept our mistakes, weaknesses, and errors and evaluate, learn and move on every time we fail, we learn being more patient and self-acceptance in nature.
- It makes you find your limits- You learn about your limits and reach your full potential. When you reflect on what didn’t work it helps you to learn from your mistakes and to get you back on the right path. Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
