Failure teaches you—what not to do wheres success teaches you—what to do. But what really important? Do’s or Don’t.
If you ask any millionaire or any successful people “What is most important in life: A failure or A success?” Their answer is so simple, failure teaches you what behind the success whereas success teaches you what it looks like outside. So the point is failure is so important than success itself.
Sometimes, I am wondering about life. Life is death or death is life. Life is happiness or death. The same goes for success and failure.
From Thomas Edition to the Elon Musk knows the greatness behind the failure. Failure takes whatever you have but in contrast, it gives you unforgettable lessons. There are less than six lessons that you will learn from your first failure.
If you are a new learner or want to build your own startup then you should learn failure lessons from other successful peoples. If you don’t want to throw yourself in the pain of failure than you should learn lessons that others were learned from the failure mine.
Lesson #1- Failure to build your confidence.
Whatever you do, if you take risk you begin the race to kill your fear and anxiety. When you fail, you have only two options left: 1. begin the race again to achieve the desired goals. 2. Go back and change the goals. Whatever your options are, you build your confidence.
The best thing to choose after the failure is to change your plan not the goal itself. Don’t be as Albert Einstein said “Stupidity is doing the same thing and expecting different results”
Failure is an opportunity to build your confidence and increase your self-esteem. As research by biological psychiatrist Dennis Charney: when you view a situation through the lens of opportunity and see yourself as capable, your body and brain have an enabling response more conducive to higher-level strategic thinking; so when a person sees failure or risk as a challenge, they are more calm, thoughtful, enthusiastic and invigorated.
There is another research that shows that if you have low self-esteem then you are always surrounded by failure and failure always there to help you— helps you to build low self-esteem to high self-esteem.
“ The key differences between individuals with high and low self-esteem. For example, people with high self-esteem focus on growth and improvement, whereas people with low self-esteem focus on not making mistakes in life. “
Lesson #2- Failure gives you important knowledge.
As we all know failure teaches us what won’t work and what works in a better way, it is easy to find the solution right way.
Failure is our teacher and we are the pupils if we take the risk to fail. It is insane if we take the risk to fail not for success. Follow what Elon Musk said: “Failure is not an option here. If things are not failing, you are not innovating enough”
Lesson #3- Failure realizes the importance of your goals.
Somehow goals are important in life. It will lead you to where you really want to go. If you fail at top of the success ladder, you realize the importance and value of your goals and your life.
You will find your goal is nothing but your own life — your own self.
Your goal is your life. If you fail, it won’t change by you or nature itself. Failure gives you the opportunity to revisit and envision your goals again.
It means failure is the mirage of the desert that will comes to you to realize the potential of your goals.
Lesson #4- Failure aware of you to gain more knowledge.
If you aren’t a voracious reader, you must fail. Remember, readers are leaders.
If you want to set up a successful business without being failed at once, you must start to read books — importantly biography and self-help books.
The best book ever and everyone recommends is Zero to One. This book helps those who have a real desire to start their own business firm.
There are many other books that everyone should read once in this busy but beautiful life.
Lesson #5- Failure teaches you the importance of Time.
You will understand ‘Great things don’t come overnight.’ This is the world where competition is in its peak, that’s why everything that you really won’t come lately no matter how strong effort puts you in.
This is the time to patience. Everything will come to you when it wants — when your destiny wants.
Failure teaches you the importance of time. Every second that put in to achieve your goals has an important role to fulfill your dreams and lastly destiny.
These are the five lessons that I personally learn from the failures of others. I have a strong desire to achieve my dreams without being failed at once.
Tell me: “Is it your desire to achieve your dreams without being a failure at once??”
