Here’s the deal. Bad stuff happens in life. You don’t always win.
I think failure provides us the greatest opportunities. This is where we can see what we are made of and really shine.
I know I learn much more from my failures than my successes. I believe this is true for everyone. Why?
- Failure hurts
- Failure is personal
- Failure is real
- Failure is disappointing
- Failure makes us want to be better
Three ways to turn failure into success.
1) Face your failure.
2) Analyze it.
3) Learn and grow.
This is where the success starts. Failure only lasts as long you let it. Once you have faced and analyzed your failure, it’s time to put that information to use. Use this information as an instruction manual for success. The bad and good news is that the instructional manual gets larger as we continue to fail and learn more.
The bottom line
Failure is inevitable. I have failed countless times and will continue to do so. That’s ok because failure provides our largest learning curve.
The key is to face it, analyze it, and grow from it. Failure is the beginning of our success.
