In order to succeed, you need to have failures. If you aren’t failing they you aren’t really stretching yourself.
You are staying inside your comfort zone, and you will never really grow and reach your full potential for success if you are stuck inside your comfort zone.
In life and especially in business, your willingness to fail because you are stretching yourself outside your comfort zone will ultimately lead to more success.
Failures make the best teachers and become the life lessons that you learn that turn into knowledge, wisdom and experience that you can then draw from the next time you are in a similar situation.
Those failures will allow you to make a better choice. One that now has more likelihood of success, because of your previous failure and what you learned because of that failure.
Failures are what allow you to learn the life lessons that you need in order to succeed next time. They provide you with the knowledge and experience that you need in order to make success possible.
Failure Is A Good Thing
A fantastic quote by Michael Jordan, probably the greatest Basketball player of all time, is quite relevant:
I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
You have to take the chances and opportunities that are available to you at the time even if you don’t have enough knowledge and experience to ensure success. You have to be willing to fail in order to make the necessary decisions in order to have great success.
If you are always being cautious, then you may never fail, or at least won’t do so in a big way, but you also likely won’t succeed, or make it very far down the success path because you aren’t willing to fail.
That willingness to try and fail is what will allow you great success in life, and if you are unwilling to take those chances because of your fear of failure, then you likely won’t ever really succeed either. You will stay safe and secure where you are, inside your comfort zone.
Be like Michael Jordan and fail more. It means that you are trying and stretching yourself, instead of staying inside your comfort zone.
If you want more success in your life and your business, then you need to fail more.
So have I convinced you that failure is a good thing?
