Failure is success in progress

Failure is an opportunity

Most people are afraid of failure in life. Truth is everyone in their life faces failure. Failure should not stop us on focusing on our goals- because failure is an opportunity. There are many successful people in the world – do you know all these successful people have failed but never gave up after they faced hardship? Luck will not just fall on anybody’s lap. We need to create an environment and be ready to accept any type of challenge in the life. All successful people whom we see today would have gone through lots of struggle, failure and trying again and again to achieve their goal.  Stories of these people should inspire and motivate us when we face failure in life.

If you have never failed, you have never lived! Take failures that you will face with grace because you’ll learn more in a single failure than in a lifetime of success. There are lessons in all our faults that are attempting to take us to our ultimate vision. Get the idea going and trust the process.

Everything you try to achieve your goal gives you experience and knowledge. We always gain while we try hard to reach the result.  Failure is also part of your journey in the road to success. Never be afraid of failure. In fact, one should embrace failure and learn from it to move on in life. Success feels very sweet after many attempts!

What we learn by failures and attempts?

1. Great experience :

No matter how hard you try not to face failure, it will happen in life anytime. One should have no fear attitude toward failure. When failure happens don’t take it too seriously and do not be discouraged. Failure also has a value. Think that it is  lesson and experience and fight back to get in track. Success will follow in your next attempt(s). Failure makes us reconsider and find new methods to achieve your goals!

2. Understanding your capability:

To make the impossible possible one has to understand their inner capacity and capability. This is where failure helps. Failure makes us try hard, push ourselves out of our comfort zone to reach goal. It builds confidence by removing the fear. “One of the biggest secrets to success is operating inside your strength zone but outside of your comfort zone,” –  Ralph Heath

3. Failure makes you more successful and yet keeps you humble:

When the ego is in charge we won’t learn from the mistakes that we make. Failure humbles a person and helps in reevaluating a situation. Mind prepares automatically, for such situations in future and helps in avoid doing the same mistakes again. We will start listening to views of others who has more experience than us and the ego goes away. In order to be successful, we have to accept that we were wrong, evaluate, learn and move on. It polishes our character and gives us more success than we think.

4. Helps to grow in life:

After failure, everyone goes through emotional low. It is natural and inevitable. But how we respond to our failures determines the road to success. People who take failure personally and give up on goal will lose in life. People who take failure positively and think it is a small set back in life, will be like phoenix bird and raise from the situation to grow in life.

Failure helps in understanding what went wrong and what difficulty we may face in life.  Best way to learn the lesson and grow after a failure in life is to read inspiring life stories of people who are successful. To accomplish something in life, instead of giving up – find better ways to reach the goal.

5. Failure is good – why?

Because, failure is a redirection. It shows you where you shouldn’t be. Failure is an opportunity. It’s a chance to re-evaluate and come back stronger with better reasoning. Failure is not fatal. No matter how hard it may be know that failure simply means you get another shot to try it all again.

What we all need to remember is: failure simply means in positive way- there is something to be learned or another direction to be taken.  Each failure is simply a feedback of how to perfect the craft. Failure won’t kill anyone but fear to fail  may keep anyone from success.
