"I have not failed. I have found 10,000 ways that don’t work." — Thomas Edison
Success and Failures are inevitable in human lives. While success gives you the motivation to move forward in life, failure, unfortunately, becomes the cause of depression leaving you devastated.
Small failures somehow get managed if accompanied by success but the continuous failures in various aspects of life whether professional or personal often make you feel like being defeated by life and draining you mentally.
However, if you take failure negatively it will destroy you but if you take it positively it can help you achieve what you never thought of as there are many hidden lessons inside failure which you can only uncover with positivity in mind. The following are the few important things that failure teaches you unknowingly:-
Whenever you suffer from big failures, you often feel like life has nothing more to offer you and all your happiness has ended but that is not the truth. Sometimes failures leave you into pieces and make you emotionally weak to stand up for life again.
At this point in life rather than quitting, try to pick up your broken pieces and analyze where it went wrong or what you can do to make it better. If you feel there is a chance of overcoming it, take that chance without thinking of what others will say or how you will be judged and give your best to accomplish it.
But not all failures can be recovered, in such cases, it gives you the lesson to be mature enough to accept the change and move on for a fresh start. That’s when you see a complete transformation of your character as a person.
"The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure." ― John C. Maxwell
Don’t be afraid to try things in life just due to the fear of failure. In every step of life, you keep on learning and hence the failures in those steps give you the best experience to grow and improve as a person.
Failure teaches you how to handle life from the mistakes you committed in past for a better present and a beautiful future. It makes you experienced through the practical lessons in life.
"Failure happens all the time. It happens every day in practice. What makes you better is how you react to it." ― Mia Hamm
Failure apparently seems like it is breaking you completely but if you do an analysis of all your failures in life, you will feel that over time it has helped you understand your priorities and what matters to you the most be it work, or family, or someone you love.
You eventually put stress on those priorities due to failures which finally help you achieve success in life if not sooner but definitely later.
"The secret of life is to fall seven times and to get up eight times." — Paulo Coelho
This is especially on the work front when you are giving continuous efforts but somehow unable to achieve success.
You feel like giving up but instead of that if you do a short research on your work profile you will get to understand where you are going wrong and maybe it's time you should experiment with some new approaches and give your best efforts in it.
You eventually try to find strategies in your work field anyhow that can give you the deserved results and in the process, you basically end up increasing your creativity level and knowledge by trying out new methods which otherwise you would not have thought of and continue with your monotonous approaches.
"You can’t let your failures define you. You have to let your failures teach you." ― Barack Obama
Too much success destroys human nature making them arrogant and egoistic. Very few people have the capacity to maintain their good nature by being immensely successful.
Failure in such cases teaches the majority of individuals how to treat everyone with the same respect, how to be kind to everyone, and how to understand the difficulties of other people. If you suffer failure you easily understand other people’s pain and become kind and helpful in nature keeping your ego aside.
"Failure is another stepping stone to greatness." ― Oprah Winfrey
When you are successful you don’t mind spending a lot of money on useless things like alcohol, gambling, etc for fun and entertainment. But failure teaches you how to respect money and spend accordingly to have a better future and live a healthy lifestyle.
So this is how failure gives you the best lessons in life to help you become a better person than you were yesterday which success would have never given you. Remember never give up because "Giving up is the only sure way to fail." ― Gena Showalter
"You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it." — Maya Angelou
