We all come from all walks of life, and we encountered different things along the way, but there is one common thing that keeps us from making our own success story, and that is the fear of failure. Now, having already carved my own success story, I know this all too well, so I want to convince you that you shouldn’t be afraid of failure, because there is ‘no such thing’.
You will encounter failures before succeeding
Almost all people who changed the world failed. Steve jobs was kicked out of his own company. Elon Musk failed a lot of launches for SpaceX to almost running out of money, to name a few. If you do things of significance, failure is ‘normal’.
Failure is just a hump, what matters is what you will do after
In a business sense and for people who persevere in their fields, failure is just a ‘setback’ and a ‘hump’. It is a problem that needs to be solved now to hopefully not happen in the future again. What IS important, is to have a good mindset in approaching failures.
Really good visionaries, as the cliche goes, always find an opportunity for every failure. Failure is normal and is there, what matters is what you will do after, whether you will just accept it, or do something about it.
There is no failure, there is only learning
Every failure provides a wealth of knowledge. Failures are actually one of the best teachers. When you encounter one, you will never ever never forget it, and this will make you tougher as you know already what to do in the future if you encounter it again.
Sure, it is really painful, that pain will be your reminder. And sure everybody hates failure, I hate it and I don’t want to encounter it, I am only human. But I learned not to be afraid of it, and just have a level head when it happens to always find a solution.
There is no such thing as failure, but there is only learning and growing. And we should always choose to learn and grow.
