I hate failing. The term “hate” may be harsh, but It’s how I feel about failing. That is until I discovered the beauty of failing. Think about it: failing has always been linked to a negative connotation. Throughout life we’re told that failing is bad! In some cases—rightfully so, but as I have come to realize in recent years, failing is an integral part of life, and plays a major role in reaching your dreams and goals.
It’s uncomfortable to think about failing, and going through that process. Our society is caught up in instant success, and being “famous” within a short period of time. Like it or not, failing is a part of life and without it; how would we grow as a person? If all we did was succeed all the time, we would never learn about ourselves, and how much we can handle mentally and physically.
Once you start embracing failing in your life, I guarantee you will be better off, and you will learn so much from it. Think of failing as feedback. It lets you know if you’re on the right track, or not. Basically, it’s like having your own GPS system. Now I don’t want to sugarcoat anything. Depending on what you’re trying to accomplish, it will be a tough process. You may even want to give up at times, but that’s the best part of failing. You will find out what works, and what doesn’t. Once you breakthrough and accomplish your goal, failing will be your ally.
Achieving success is about the journey, not the destination. When you do succeed, you will hardly think about the success you have accomplished. Instead, you will reflect on the challenges you faced along the way, and how you were able to overcome them. The time is now; get started on your journey, and start failing your way to success.
