Failure is a word that has a negative connotation. In fact, the pressure is on everyone who competes in anything to win on the first try. Failure means shame to many people and they soon give up after losing once and facing criticism left and right. Some people would call them losers but are they?
What we should call them are learners because with every failure comes knowledge. and I’m not talking book knowledge I’m talking about real actionable knowledge that can used in the future.
Almost every great scientist or leader in any field did not go through life without failing. History says Thomas Edison failed more than a thousand times before discovering the light bulb.
Consider failure like a video game. Every time you lose you get to start over and with the knowledge that you gained while playing before. As a result you become a better player.
Without failure, you can not build the mental fortitude you need for when things are not going your way. If you are continuously successful it will be much harder for you to bounce back from failure.
When you fail and learn, fail and learn you become better every single attempt. Success makes you complacent and a person who consistently fails knows this.
People who get success right out the gate become relaxed and begin to have a carefree attitude. Take for example children who grow up having everything handed to them. they become bewildered and confused when things don’t go their way.
This carries into adulthood and they don’t know how to handle rejection. This is in contrast to their parents who had to fight for everything they had to be successful.
It is better to fail now than in your older years. In those times you need the knowledge and experience you gained from your younger years to guide you. It is a balancing game. Success can lead to failure and failure can lead to success depending on the mindset.
