It’s apt to be afraid; failing is something that all of us are afraid of. However, to grow as a person and achieve more success in the future, learning is must from failures.
Failure instructs you what doesn’t work, and it is required to be instructed since what doesn’t work is essential for identifying what does work.
Although it hurts, failure is a necessary feature of life.
People have failed more times than they’d admit. And It’s not about small failures; I’m talking about the kind of failures that rock your world, completely altering the landscape of your relationships, finances, and mental well-being.
While success and failure are inherent parts of your professional and personal life, identifying the emotions connected to both is a crucial first step in developing emotional intelligence.
We Fail because we are afraid of making bold moves:
If something different to be done by us is wanted, to stand out from the others, to achieve the impossible. Next, we must feel pleasant with our uniqueness from others. Coming with the pack is not an option when it comes to looking for unique success. The benefit of going with the pack is that we'll arrive where everyone else is. We must be autonomous thinkers who are certain of our goals. We need to be able to accept criticism from those dearest to us.
We fail because we are afraid of failing:
Who likes failure? No one, because it paralyzes us. We frequently avoid trying because we are so afraid of failing.
As the old saying goes, “Trying and failing is better than not trying at all”. Let’s try not to be afraid of trials. Failures are the result of trying. Imagine a world where no one tries anything because no one wants to fail, no one will be succussed. Success will come. One step at a time. Failure isn’t meant to bring down or punish us.
Progress can only be made when we try. The turtle can never make progress if he does not stick his neck out. There is always a reason that justifies, rejection or change confines us within the boundaries of our comfort zone.
Failures give rise to success:
- It allows you to experiment and test what does not work to discover what does work.
- Does not let you miss the advantage, it can bring
- Redirects you to explore more possible successful options. We might move on to something better if we fail at something.
- It boosts creativity, for it is the fastest way to learn
- Helps us get rid of fear and teaches humility as well
- It helps you develop more determination and courage
- It gives you the option of retrying and learning more in some or the other way
A few tips to overcome failure
Those who discover how to fight back from failure grow stronger. Let’s face it, failure is a reality we have all experienced. The difference is how we deal with it. For example, I know you didn’t learn to walk on your very first attempt. What I know is that you have probably tried to walk many times despite falling many times.
Thousands of successful people did not succeed the first time, but they were not discouraged.
They got up and started again with stronger perseverance and more determination to achieve their goals.
There are many examples of what some might consider failures.
We often hear or read about people’s successes, but what we don’t hear is how many times they started, failed, and restarted.
Don’t be discouraged if your plan fails the first time.
No one learns to walk just by taking a step!
Failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success. Failure constitutes the way we learn, grow, and evolve. Therefore, don’t give up when you fail another time. Instead, use it as a chance to improve and learn. Keep in mind that success is a journey that includes both success and failure rather than a destination.
