There are two types of people, people who take failure personally, see it as a permanent situation and give up, and there are people who use it as a lesson. Do not take it personally but see it as a temporary setback.
Are you familiar with the story of Thomas Edison? Thomas Edison failed a total of 1000 times with his light bulb invention before creating his first successful light bulb prototype. “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” a reporter asked. “I didn’t fail 1,000 times,” Edison responded. “The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps”.
Unlike Edison, many of us avoid the prospect of failure. When we do make mistakes, we try to forget them, leaving them out of our success stories. Here are some reasons why you should embrace failure:
1. Failure is life’s greatest teacher: It is from our failure and mistakes that we learn how to do things successfully.
2. Failure can be the push you needed to reaching your full potential
3. Failure brigs character and humbles you
4. Failure determines the type of person you are
Remember that it is important to maintain a positive mindset. Maintain a positive attitude so that, no matter what you encounter, you’ll be able to see the lessons from the experience and continue to push forward. Keep reading and listening to materials that bolster that attitude.
