How Do We Perceive Failure?

Results are everything. We can’t deny the fact that there are a lot of people who only think and look at results. Sometimes it irks us to no end to meet and know that people close to us are like this even though we are, at times, like them as well. It has been ingrained in us that there is nothing good in failure, that failure is the end. Successful business executives think otherwise though. 

Failure is not failure 

Firstly they don’t think failure as being a failure, just opportunity, situations and circumstances to learn and grow! We would not change or learn if we don’t make mistakes.

Failure is the Starting Line

Failure is only the starting line in our adventures in life

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. A famous proverb about not achieving anything if we do not take risks. We cannot become who we are if we haven’t experienced failure even once. Failure is the result of trying to do something that resulted in something unexpected. It is not the end result, but it is a product of trying to achieve something. The more you fail and get back up, the more you learn and get stronger. 

Failure to Improve

Some of us believe that there are things beyond our control. Things such as “People are successful because they are talented” or “I’m destined to fail in whatever I do.” Such negativity is the root of why some people can never leave the cycle of failure and that they infect others with their negativity. They’ve experienced failure and since then, haven’t tried to improve on what they lack and just blame everything or everyone. Never once did they think that everything isn’t permanent, that effort and perseverance were the key factors to success. Failures test our capacity and how we are able to adapt and put the experience we gained to good use.

Failure is A Challenge

Challenge the impossible. Losing to a competitor might make a person lose confidence in both skill and grit, but it also helps them realize the areas they are lacking in. By accepting defeat, taking time to reflect, and finally standing up to try again will set you up for more and better success. It doesn’t matter if you’ve only made half a step forward. What matters is that despite receiving scars from defeat, you are more than willing to try again. Risking the chance of another failure but, better prepared for success. Seeing the “good” in failure, learning from those, and growing by improving the areas you were lacking will set you closer to success.

Failure is Only a Part of the Journey

Failure is only a part of the journey unless you don't do anything about it

The only failure is failing to get back up and try again. There is no success if there are no failures, if there were, they would be too shallow to even be called success. Our effort and dreams are what fuels our drive to try and achieve success. Learning and understanding from our mistakes would make success even a great achievement. It gives us more fulfillment whenever we are able to overcome great challenges. Enjoy the journey along the way, learning, growing and becoming a better person everyday. 

Success is only possible after experiencing countless failures. Failures teach us to be humble and that nothing is perfect; it is only through experiencing failures that we truly understand. Motivational speakers have vast knowledge of success because of all the failures that they have experienced. Some have experienced life-changing failures that they thought were impossible to climb out of, but with their never give up attitude made them succeed. Focus on the goal and you will succeed.
