Yes, Failure is a key. This sounds like… Wow, really… What are you trying to say? Yeah, what I’m saying is… Failure is not what people think it is. Most people see failure from the wrong perspective. There are many keys to success and failure is just one of them.
… The difference between greatness and mediocrity is often how an individual views a mistake.
– Nelson Boswell
I’m not saying failure is good but I’m saying failure is not that bad and terrible thing many people see it to be. Failure is part of life and it is part of the stones or steps one needs to climb to success and greatness. Failure and defeat is not the same. Many people see failure as defeat, no it’s not. Failure is just a condition which can be change with consistency, determination, strategy and other positive attitude. Defeat on the other hand is surrender that it’s over. Defeat is a state of no hope.
… Failure is key to success, each mistakes teaches us something.
My failures in life makes me keep getting better, I choose not to run away from my failures, I accept them and learn many ways things could not work and work. There is no better life without mistakes or failure. The wrong way people see failure is one the most dangerous thing in the world. Seeing failure the wrong way leads to more death than the failure itself, death of life, career, business, destiny, purpose, relationship, marriage and many more.
Like I said, success has many keys such as hard work, determination, positivity and so on. Failure is also a key factor to success. Failure is always saying…
- Don’t give up
- Try again
- Keep trying
- You are almost there
- You are better now, you can still be the best.
But oftentimes instead of people seeing what Failure is saying they choose to see defeat. Failure is an eye opener. It is also a map that makes you discover the route to success. Many people today are suffering from seeing failure the wrong way.
… No one can hide from failure, one can just make good use of it.
I love what John Maxwell said about failure. He said, failing forward is key to success. He advice we should turn mistakes to stepping stones for success. And that’s just it.
Here is what I know, I know that… Every great and successful people’s stories in life entails there journey of failure over failure until they did it. Don’t accept it is over… No, there is more to your life than what has happened or what is happening.
Here is a few quotes and words from some great minds…
- “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.” ~ Samuel Beckett
- “Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.” ~ Confucius
- “Great success is built on failure, frustration, even catastrophy.” ~ Sumner Redstone
- “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot … and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. That is why I succeed.” ~ Michael Jordan
- “Failure provides the opportunity to begin again, more intelligently.”~ Henry Ford
Do not be your own hindrance to success and greatness. Know what’s good for you. I know what’s good for me. When I fail, I see it as one step closer to success. I learn and get better. This things can be hard to accept but I will always say that… Nothing good comes easy, you’ve got to work at it.
I wish you all the very best in your relationship, career, businesses, family, marriage and in all you do.
