And I quote: "Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm."
-- Winston Churchill
Most adults and adolescents living with them, children raised by them go through life with an almost ever present fear of failure. A bit ironic since if considering that if one learns failingsā every step and overcoming failure with chin up is almost a requirement for eventually becoming a successful person.
Everybody experienced set-backs which at the time, seem like the end of the world, but in fact are often the starting steps towards what we really want? I think I noticed some reasons why failure can actually be a good thing for some of us.
Using your inspiration or your intuition, when you're trying something for the third, fourth or even a thousandth time you often say "I intend to succeed this timeā can actually be a pretty strong motivator towards success.
A small failure here and there can serve as a very useful breaking mechanism to bring us back down to earth and to show us that if we are humble and reconsider sometimes our position failure could turn to success.
As adults, it's very easy to forget the lessons of our childhood. Too often we view our "falls" as setbacks, rather the absolutely necessary steps on the road to success that they are. Just remember the days when you learned how to walk or ask your parents how you did it. If you did it from the beginning steps then a big round of applause, if not then reconsider the falls you run through your life.
I know I have failed in several points of today, maybe less tomorrow, but it is important to learn from our mistakes!
Have you failed today? If so, then thatās excellent.
