I fail every day. Most of time it’s small things – tying my shoelace, not saying sorry quick enough, leaving Windows mucky.
Every now and again I’ll fail big time – buying an unprofitable business for £50,000 without having any knowledge of the service being offered. Big boo boo!
I believe failure is an important part of success.
Why failure is important!
Most believe failure is something scary that should be avoided all costs. Some people dodge taking risks altogether to reduce their exposure to failure – I know I was brought up by two.
In order to succeed and realise your goal, you are going have to take calculated risks at the very least.
Taking risks stretches our comfort zone until it expands to a point where we are comfortable with the action we are taking. To put it simply taking risk forces us to grow.
Occasionally the calculated risks will not work out and failure occurs. This is when we learn the most. Failure gives us experience, if the same situation occurs again we can handle it better.
Sit back, relax and enjoy
Take a look at the video below. It was sent to me by my sister Amy. It describes failure perfectly.
