Inevitable failure is needed


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

E’s Thoughts & Quotes: Inevitable failure is needed

E’s Thoughts & Quotes: Excuses

“Succes is the culmination of failures, mistakes, false starts, confusion, and the determination to keep going anyway.”
-Nick Gleason

I am not afraid of making mistakes or failing. I have made so many in my life. But, with those mistakes and failures comes life’s lessons. These lessons are truly learned through experience to give us the opportunity to grow. I still continue to make mistakes, but I acknowledge them and I try and fix them. I do fall off sometimes because I am human, but I get back on my feet and shake the dust off. Imagine for a second how many times a baby falls before it ever walks, a baby never quits trying because of the pain. The “want” out weighs the pain of falling, pain is temporary if we allow it to be. Please take the time to figure out what you need to learn from your mistakes so you can take the step in the right direction. You don’t want to end up stuck.
