Seeing Failure As Success

Do you tend to hide your failures or admit your mistakes?

Failure. We all face it the moment we wake up in the morning. And whether we  want to admit it or not, we have all failed before. Some of us, like me, multiple times.

I know that failure has a bad reputation (one that I once firmly held it to). But, what if we turned our mind about failure and saw it as success?

Would that be crazy talk?

After many a failure, I have learned that mistakes show is where to grow and ultimately go. Failure can set you back on the track when you begin sliding off. And it’s because of  this that making mistakes is a gift in life.  It’s these mistakes that pick up the pieces that fell behind us along the way.

Why do I say that?

Some of the most successful people in the world are those who are willing to fail over and over. Look at Richard Branson, for example, or take it from Thomas Edison:

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

In order to succeed at what you love, you must also be willing to fail at it until there is no other way left to fail. Which could be everyday for the rest of your life and beyond! Sounds like a pretty big commitment. It is. It’s your life!
