Why its Important to Fail:
Importance of Failures, Fundamental of Success, Tips to be successful
How do view failure? Do you see it as something that you don’t want to be associated with, or do you see it as something positive?
Most people in the world don’t like a failure. Fear of failure is the main reason why more than 80% of people in the world are not prepared to change their circumstances. Why do people fear failure so much? The reason for this is because people don’t understand the dynamics involved in success and failure. Everything we do in life has either the right way of doing it and a wrong way of doing it. When we do it the right way, we meet with success. Needless to say that when we do it the wrong way, we are unsuccessful.
Understanding this is important because it puts failure in its proper perspective and removes the fear around it. When someone who doesn’t understand this dynamic meets with temporary failure, he gives up thinking that he is not good enough or that he will make it. But is this really what it is? Does the fact that you didn’t make it the first time mean that you are not good enough? Does it mean that you’ll never make it? Not at all!
All it means is you have not found the correct method yet! So what do you do next? You go back and try and fill out where you went wrong. Then you try again this time employing a different method. When this doesn’t work, you go back and look at everything you have done so far.
Talk to successful people who have made it in this area. Think of what you might have left out and try again. Why do you need to do this? Because “Every failure, every adversity, and every heartache, carries with it the seed of an equivalent or a greater benefit,” says author and mentor to many great men, Napoleon Hill. Failure contains the seed of victory and success. Failure teaches you what work and what doesn’t. When you study the reasos for your failure and learn from it, you’ll find the key to your success.
The great inventor Thomas Edison knew this truth more than anyone else. Did it take Edison 8000 trials to perfect the Edison battery? Afterward, he uttered this famous quote, “At least we know 8000 things that don’t work”. Every successful person has had to overcome a temporary defeat at the one time or another. Know this! You haven’t failed until you accept defeat. Do you envy those who got success quickly? Don’t! Success earned in spite of earlier failure is so much sweeter than if you would get it otherwise. Those who earn success in this way know the road to success. They are not afraid of losing the hat they have because they have learned how to become successful. Those that easily got success don’t know the road They got there so quickly that they didn’t bother to look around.
Let me use the following analogy to illustrate. Take two guys travelling to the same destination, with this difference. The one is going by airplane and the other by car, but the one arriving by car had a few breakdowns along the way. If you take these guys back to their original position and ask them to find their way to theor destination, who do you think is going to remember the road better the next time? Surely the guy who had a few breakdowns and spent some time on the road, because he had the opportunity to look around. Let temporary defeat no longer be an obstacle but an ally, and you’ll be on your way. You have many hidden talents, so start working towards realizing your dreams.
Don’t be put off by fear of failure. Failure is an ally because it contains the seeds of success. How is Failure A Good Thing? Failure is a feeling just like pain. When we move our hands close to a fire, we feel the pain caused by the heat as a form of information or feedback. This feeling is telling us “Warning” this fire will cause us pain. We don’t fear the fire or try to control it; we understand the feedback and act accordingly by moving our hand away from the fire. The same can be said about failure. It’s just another feedback.
