Some fundamental truths about failure:

  • A great teacher on success

Failure can be a useful tool to teach the individual how to succeed next time. You only become a fool when you refuse to learn the truth about what works or does not work when you fail in an endeavour. People are not failures because they failed, you only fail when you refuse to try.

  • The fear of failure

Some individuals refuse to try because of the fear of failure, but it is better to fail repeatedly than not to try at all. Those who fear failure always ask; what if I fail, but the other side of the questions is; what if I succeed.

  • Make you an authority

Whether you fail or succeed in endeavours at least, you have a practical understanding of what makes it work or fail. This knowledge makes you an authority in the subject area, and people can approach you to learn the rudiments.

How to be a successful failure

  • Take the leap

You require more courage to try and fail than not to try at all. You can only know for certain whether you will fail or succeed after you give it a shot not before.

  • Ask yourself some stringent questions

Sometimes, what makes a person fail in an enterprise is predictable. Every industry has rules guiding its operations. Failure to adhere to rules is a sure sign of being ready to fail at one point. But if you would ask yourself some pertinent questions such as:

–    What are we doing wrong?

–    What are we getting right?

–    Where does out strength lie?

–    What’s our weakest link?

These questions and more can help avert even the need to fail. Even if one fails, then it is time to understand what was amiss.

  • Take note and try again

Because it did not work out then does not mean it will not work out now. Haven failed before means more knowledge of how it works, and so your chances of success are higher now.

But as Chuk puts it:

“This is your life and its ending one moment at a time…The lower you fall, the higher you’ll fly.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club Quotes
