Failure is a learning experience
Failure is a learning experience. With the right attitude, not only can you say that a failure costs you nothing, but that it can even be a significant step forward.
Whenever you fail at something you should remind yourself of this – you didn’t actually lose anything. If you apply for a job and don’t get it, you didn’t lose the job, because you never had it to begin with. You will not get far in life if you try to avoid failure. Babe Ruth struck out more often than he hit home runs, but few remember the strike outs. Michael Jordon once said, “I’ve failed over and over again in my life, and that is why I succeed.”
1. Celebrate Rejection
Sara Blakely , the founder of Spanx, a now widely successful undergarment corporation, was a door-to-door fax machine sales woman for many years. In an interview with Fareed Zakaria, she explained that this taught her how to handle rejection. Growing up, her family celebrated rejection.
2. Failure is a learning experience
If you look around you, and really look deep, you being to realize that nobody is immune to failure, but those who succeed did not fear it. The failures out there are those who allow failure to become who they are, rather than a learning experience.
3. Everyone fails, keep finding the way forward.
When you’re trying to succeed out there, remember that everyone fails, but not everyone is a failure. With the right attitude, not only can you say that a failure costs you nothing, but it can even be a significant step forward.
As you look at all the success possibilities out there, most of them are failures, but you only need a few, or maybe just one success. A few successes are mixed into all those failures out there, and it’s your job to find it. Every failure you get out of the way brings you closer to your achievements.
As Thomas Edison once said, “I have not failed. I just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” He only needed one way that it would work, and he found it! So go out there, and see how many failures you can knock out!
