It teaches you experience– When we go through something and can walk away with firsthand experience; it helps us to develop a deeper understanding for life.
It gives you knowledge – That knowledge can be harnessed in the future to overcome that very failure that inflicted so much pain in the first place.
It builds your resilience– The more we fail, the more resilient we become.
In order to achieve great success, we must know resilience. Because, if we think that we’re going to succeed on the first try, or even the first few tries, then we’re sure to set ourselves up for a far more painful failure.
It makes us grow– When we fail, we grow and mature as human beings. We reach deeper meanings and understandings about our lives and why we’re doing the things that we’re doing. This helps us to reflect and take things into perspective, developing meaning from painful situations.
Successful people understand that failure is a pre-requisite for success and the sooner you buy into that the quicker you’ll reach personal success & happiness.
It helps us face our fears.
It helps us face the facts.
Clarity: Crisis creates clarity. Failures force us to clear out the noise and zero in on what is most important.
Creativity: Failure creates constraints. You must level up your creativity to generate fresh possibilities and attract new resources to implement the new vision.
Grit: If you get slammed by a failure and bounce back that is called resilience. If you learn, adjust and actually return better than before, then you have grit
Freedom: Failure strips you of your notion of invincibility. Accepting your failure takes an act of humility. If you own your failure, you are liberated. You can now go about your business without the constant pressure to appear to be perfect.
