How To Fail Successfully

How do you perceive failure? Failure comes in different ways, failure in your business, in your relationships, loss of someone, tragic experience,wrong decision. Most of us think that failure is the end of everything. Well, let me tell you something, Failure is not Final!. Observe what it can do to you if you commit failure. This may cause us deep pain, disillusioned, anxiety, fear and loss of confidence. That's it! Remaining that way, you just made it! That's how to fail successfully.

I did not say that you don't have to cry and burst out your emotions. Time heals all wounds and you have a choice, be bitter or become better. I didn't say that when you fail you can immediately get up and run again. We need to slow down. If you are running and have broken your legs along the way, its hard to get up, need medical attention and months of physical therapy. Within yourself you know the time when you are already well. That's the perfect time to go back on tract.

But more often, we use failure as an excuse for not trying again. Yes it's true we cannot reclaim the loss, undo all the damages and reverse all the consequences. But one thing is sure...we can make a new brand start. No matter how many times we start over, and over again, the strong determination to move on will always lead us for the better. Leave everything behind and focus on things ahead of you.

Turning failure to succeed is an opportunity. Don't let the stones be a stumbling block but rather a stepping-stones. If you have failed because of a wrong decision, be brave enough to face the defeat. Exploit the failure; don't waste it. Learn all you can from it; every bitter experience can teach you something. There is so much you can do.

There are two extremes that people do when they fail. first, they tend to bring back the situation as quick as they can. Second, is the tendency to stay down and discouraged. The first extreme must warn us about the hard fall and realize the damage, it is difficult but it's better to get up slowly. Be cautious. The other extreme should also recognize that the fall won't take long. Look at the people around you. There are people who are willing to help and lend their helping hand. Recognized the help they are offering and learn that no man is an island.

If we realized the benefits from failure, this will become the key to success. There are a lot of people, with inspiring lives, who have gone the same way. They serve as an inspiration to us. Do you see yourself that way? That in your failure, you can inspire the lives of those people behind you. You can do it, and don't forget to trust God.

Great article! People need to learn that the greatest teacher is the failure and there is no such thing as escape errors and do not make mistakes. If we do not make mistakes then how will we learn. Just look at how babies learn and you will understand what I mean.

One of my favorite quotes is "Failure is an event, not a person". If you can see failure as a single event, you realize you have plenty of opportunities to create new events. Nobody is likely to fail every time.

Its true. To many people think of failure as the end. And like you said that it does take time to overcome the defeat, sometimes you just need to recover, but then get back up, dust yourself off, and go again. I can tell you lots of times where I lost my confidence while working with horses. It took time again but I got back on, learned more, and rode again. Now, those things that effected me before don't know.
