A Failure Is Still A Step Towards Success Unless You Stopped Trying
“Those who hope to avoid all failure and misfortune are trying to live in a fairyland; wise people realistically accept failures as a part of life and build philosophies to meet them and make the best of them.” – Wilferd A. Peterson”
I love this quote. Another favorite saying of mine is that if someone has never failed, its probably because they have never tried something new or to go beyond their self-imposed limits. What do you think of failure? Are all failures mistakes?
Personally I am VERY pleased with some of my failures. They made me sit up and take notice. They made me stop and ponder. Some even made me change the way I was progressing. My goals changed, my life style changed. And for that in hindsight, the failures were perfect 🙂
“Virtually nothing comes out right the first time. Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. The only time you don’t want to fail is the last time you try something…. one fails forward toward success.” – Charles F. Kettering
Wayne Dyer says that if you try something and it doesn’t come out right, then you haven’t failed–you’ve just created an outcome. Perhaps the outcome isn’t exactly the one that you had hoped to create, but what of that? It’s not such a big deal, is it? The fact is that our attempts that result in outcomes that we hadn’t intended are some of the greatest learning experiences that we possibly can have.
