Why Is Failure Important And How To Benefit From It (Guest Post)

By Stefan

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Winston Churchill

Failure can be a great a great motive to succeed indeed, yet we often get discouraged when we
fail at something. Moreover, we are even afraid of the possibility of failure itself. Regardless of
what we’re talking about – it could be a bad grade at school, criticism we get from our boss, or
something as trivial as impossibility to find a date at bbw online dating sites – it seems like we’ve
subconsciously adopted the claim that failures are wrong and not socially accepted and we even
treat it as an axiom of a kind. The key is, however, to embrace and even cherish your failures,
learn from them, and then keep on trying no matter what.

There are numerous tips and success stories that we’ve learned from iconic figures that could
certainly teach us the thing or two about the importance of failure as a means of achieving own
success. Still, we are going to share just some of them, which are in our opinion the most
effective ones.

#1 Face your fears

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

This Paulo Coelho quote pretty much sums the entire issue up. Fear is often wrapped up in false
security that is actually a jail that doesn’t allow us to make any moves. The most important thing
about the fear is to learn that breaking free perhaps won’t result in the desired outcome, well not
at first, but once you’ve hit the rock bottom you’ll most certainly survive and then you can dust
yourself off and move on.

#2 Understanding the situation

“Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door. ”
Coco Chanel

Okay, so you’ve failed. Big deal! You can now start again by assessing the situation and learning
from your mistakes, which are by the way – human. The Earth is not going to stop revolving
around the Sun, and you don’t have the luxury to cry over the past mistakes for too long. At least
not when you can try to do it all over again.

#3 Enjoy your failure

“Together, they would watch everything that was so carefully planned collapse, and they would
smile at the beauty of destruction.” Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Forbes contributor, Michael Lindenmayer, actually suggests that you should organize a real
feast, with drinks and food and entourage of your closest friends and then enjoy a constructive
contemplation about your failure. Besides sounding like a fun, this can be a great way to take a
different perspective on your mistakes that will give you a fresh approach on what to do next.

#4 Move on

“A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions– as attempts to find out
something. Success and failure are for him answers above all.” Friedrich Nietzsche

Nietzsche was right. You should simply learn your lessons, get up and move on and this is pretty
much the entire philosophy behind it!
