Side Note: I just want to make the statement that I’m talking about the kind of failure that happens in spite of your preparation to succeed. I am NOT talking about failing a math test that you didn’t study for. If you didn’t study for the test then you kinda deserve to fail.
The funny thing about failure is that it will teach you something (if you let it). One of the best things you can do for yourself is learn to get over the pain of failure and tap into the power of failure.
We learn wisdom from failure much more than success. We often discover what we will do, by finding out what we will not do.
There is always a lesson in failure, you just have to find it. Failure could be a lesson in letting go or not giving up or you are a survivor.
There’s a flip side, of course, and it’s this:
The absolute worst thing you could do is let failure turn to fear.
Because once it’s turned to fear then other things start happening; you stop trying, you don’t believe in yourself, you give up. Don’t let it get to that. Ever.
But what if I try again and fail again?
Good question! So I will leave you with this:
