8 New Ways to Rethink Failure

Failure is not always a bad thing, the problem is that many people do not use it to benefit themselves. Here are some steps to take in order to rethink failure and make it positive. First people can use failure as a reason to give up, but it is better to think of it as a way to be better next time. Also people should think of it as the beginning to a new attempt and not the end of their attempt. Another good way to think of failure is that it is proof that you took a risk. You should always use failure as a source of knowledge and experience gained. Failure can also be a test for how good you are at assuming. Instead of looking t failure as a single loss, think of it as a loss after a small series of wins. Failure can also be seen as a way to become more empathetic and humble with others who face the same problems. Lastly it may just be a sign you were on the wrong path.

Key Takeaways:

  • Winston Churchill famously said, “Failure is not fatal…it is the courage to continue that counts”
  • Try to see failure in a positive light: When one door closes, another one opens, and you increase your resilience
  • Use failure as a sign you’re on the wrong path, or an opportunity to gain experience and knowledge

“The more chances you take, the likelier you are to occasionally — even frequently — fall flat on your face.”
