When you start anything new it’s more likely inevitable to fail, but do not be discouraged by that outcome. Don’t expect a baby that can only crawl to walk perfectly the first time they try, fall they will, and fail they must. From those failures they will learn. You need to change your views on failure. You could see failure as something so horrible and so crippling that it causes you to quit. But, in reality what failures really do is they give you the context to re-calibrate your methods and sharpen your skills to flourish your successes.
It is easy to be discouraged by your failures which makes it even easier to quit. It is human nature to beat yourself up mentally and see yourself as not good enough. Yet, what builds character and ultimately reaching success is going from failure to failure, pain to pain without giving up on yourself. Keeping your eyes on the prize will lessen the pain of the failures. If success was easy then everyone would have it, success was meant to be earned. So, earn it. Success is worth temporary pain.
“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”
– Robert F. Kennedy
“It’s failure that gives you the proper perspective on success.”
– Ellen DeGeneres
