Failure is a Valuable Teacher

Failure is a reality. Failure is painful. Failure is a beautiful gift.

We all fail at times and it can be very painful when it happens, but it’s better to fail while striving for something wonderful, challenging and adventurous than to not try because we are afraid we may not succeed.

“Frequent failure” seems to be such a frightening concept, however it’s though failure that our greatest life lessons take place. When we do something that we already know how to do, something at which we’ve already succeeded, something we are already good at, there is no learning, we are simply repeating past actions to achieve the same or similar results.

Failure is such an important part of the learning process. Failure shows us how something can’t be done. Each one of our failures is an important step towards success, and the more we fail along the way, the more rewarding our eventual success. When we learn from a failure, it’s because we recognize that we missed something or there was something we didn’t do the previous times and we need a new plan.

Experience a beautiful failure today. Then make an adjustment and try again. You get closer to success each time you try.

Attitude is everything.
