Success is something that people want to achieve in everything that they do but sometimes we encounter failure. Now, when we encounter failure, there are so many things that may play a part in this matter. For example, failing to plan, fear to try, giving up too soon, disbelief, making excuses, negativity, procrastination and bad choices to name a few. There is so much more that can play a part in one’s failure.
Failure can also be the foundation to your success. When you fail, you are going to do one of two things. You are either going to continue on or give up. These two outcomes actually depend on the person within you and these two outcomes will also determine if you are going to be successful or not.
Success comes from hard work, determination, dedication, consistency, goal setting, faith/belief, honesty and a lot more. You have to work consistently at being successful and at times, it is not easy. If you want it bad enough, you will do whatever it takes to succeed. One thing for sure is to be ready to give it your all.
To me, the most important factor to success is the “Acceptance of Failure”. Some people may think that failing is a bad thing but it truly is not. Failure is a learning experience. You learn from the mistakes that you make. You become more knowledgeable and you grow in many areas. Without failing, how would you learn because we do not know everything. There is so much to learn and failures will help you broaden your mind and reach expectations that you probably thought you could not reach.
When you do not succeed at something, do not give up which is the first thing that most people want to do. You should challenge yourself against all odds. Failure should not be looked upon as an embarrassment. It is a learning experience.
The acceptance of failure is the acceptance of the growth in you. Growing is learning but you have to be willing and wanting to learn. Failure is a good word and good things come from it. Such things as:
- You become knowledgeable
- You gain confidence
- Learn Resilience
- You grow as a person
- You become self-aware of the necessity of failure
Failure is one life’s greatest teachers. It teaches you how to endure the disappointments of life. It gives you strength and increase your tolerance level. You will become self-aware of the inner being in you and your potentials. Embrace the failures of your life and turn them into memorable stories of success. Failure can be used as a tool to learn from mistake that were made. You can put certain steps and procedures into place to ensure that you will not make mistakes of that kind again.
